SHOT SHOW Day 2 - Post 1
I didn't get to bed last night until nearly midnight as after the show there were two separate functions I attended. Both were held and very loud and noisy sports bars but were a lot of fun in spite of the noise. This morning I have almost lost my voice to two the fact that I had to shout most of the night to carry on a conversation. Even so, it was a lot of fun and I ran into a bunch of great people that I only see once or twice a year. Larry from Brownell's was there, Anthony from lucky gunner, a bunch of gun bloggers, Pete Brownell, and more. And that is only a few of the people I was hanging out with last night. I apologize for all of the names that have I have left out.
Yesterday, after leaving the press room I went down to level I of the SHOT show and started to visit some of the booths. I was very impressed with the quality and appearance of the competition pistols in the Pardini booth. Pardini is legendary in Olympic shooting, and they are now venturing to action pistol models. They have a double stack .45 with an aluminum frame and an incredibly nice trigger. the quality of workmanship appears to be very high.
I am going to finish off my cup of coffee and breakfast rolls, check my email, and then head down one floor to the exhibition halls and start checking out the rest of the show.
