FWIW, not open to the public- need some sort of industry connection, so start making friends now - not sure if I'll be there next year.

Have you gone in the past? My friends will be there again and should have a booth. Basically look for the women with guns.

I was planning on it, but then I read this:

NO Photography – STRICTLY ENFORCED! Photography or video recording at the show is prohibited except by those with valid media badges or other authorized individuals. Surveillance equipment is in use 24/7.

http://www.shotshow.org/Attendees/Attendance-Rules/

Thought that was odd. I'll have pics of some stuff though... I hope.

Those are photos that originate from the authorized journalist types, that then start flowing.

There'll be no shortage of SHOT Show coverage... they just seemingly prefer to keep a tight lid on things.

No, it's not new. As I said in my prior post, they prefer to try and keep a short leash on exposure. Call it trying to ensure some semblance of "PR quality control."

Ahh, gotcha. It is funny though that so much of the released video seems like amateur hour.
