    -Buy and break in some expensive comfy shoes.
    -Don't pick up anything (literature, posters, mags, etc) It will get heavy.
    -Plan on walking for 8 hours per day for 4 days. I heard that if you walk down every aisle and row it's like 30 miles or something.
    -What you see there often times never goes to market.
    -Don't touch the ACR rifles, or they will break.
    -It's not a gun show, so you may grab the guns, rack the guns, dry-fire the guns, etc
    -Try not to bump into other dudes while walking because you are looking at the bikini girls.
    -No photography allowed (some people do it anyway) I do it, but I am a rule-breaker by nature.

    It's pretty fun, but can get tedious. It's a good place for dealers to do their yearly buy-ins.

    Went back in 2003 and 2004 when I worked for a locat outdoor products manufacturer. It was awesome to say the least. Everything Coctailer mentioned in right on. Except I didnt have a camera. Have fun...

    I went to the Shot Show once MANY years ago when it was in Dallas. I was working the Hodgdon booth at the time. It was a much smaller show then. The booth right behind us was an outfit that made diaphram turkey calls and I remember 3 days of listening to these guys working these calls. I now realize why people like to kill turkeys. :laugh:

    What coctailer said, stay in a decent hotel-no bedbugs, stay away from the strip bars unless you have permission, try to go to the shoot days to try out stuff, and be patient. I'll be there with a video crew, so a media pass is great.
