The largest and most comprehensive trade show for the shooting, hunting and law enforcement industries, SHOT Show attracts firearms retailers, manufacturers and outdoor media from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Approximately 1,500 exhibitors are expected to set up shop at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., and more than 50,000 attendees are anticipated to descend on this outdoor enthusiast’s paradise.

This time next week our team will be pounding the show floor to bring you glimpses of the many new products and exclusive interviews with the biggest industry insiders, with the promise of more in-depth gun and gear reviews in the months ahead.
