The NSSF SHOT show is coming to a close here at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. The DRGC made some contacts with acoustic vendors, POS vendors for software storefront purchasing, rubber wall bullet material and much much more.
If anyone has the opportunity to go to the SHOT Show next year I would highly recommend it, the amount of sporting good vendors on display was overwhelming. If you could think of it… it was most likely there. There was a LOT of hunting related products and shotgun sports vendors, It was disappointing not to see more USI Member Clubs at the show… I think the opportunity to learn a great deal about new products for their membership was lost.
One of the odd things we saw at SHOT was a 360K… yes thats 360,000.00 set of Perazzi shotguns. You only got 4 in the set. Take a look below… for the price of a modest starter house these could be yours!
The show closes tomorrow and we’ll be headed home. At the next members meeting we will debrief everyone at the meeting of what we learned both from industry leaders and sporting goods vendors.
Stay Tuned Diablo… Lots of fun coming […]
A couple of the board members have decided to go see what the SHOT show is all about… the drive was pretty brutal. 8+ hours in a car is not fun on a Friday night.
The show brings together all of the major manufacturers in the gun industry. This is where all of the new toys are announced, where all of the vendors like to try and sell you things for your range. It should be a great time!!
We’ll post more once the show starts… if anyone wold like us to hit up a particular booth and get some info let us know!!
check back soon
Highlights from the Range
I am a member of Diablo Rod and Gun Club for about 2 years now. I joined mainly because of action pistol (Diablo Action Pistol) activities. They have IDPA, USPSA, and Multigun matches every other week. Beyond action pistol, they have silhouette, rifle, skeet, clays, and many other activities year round. They also have a monthly social and meetings. I really like being a member of DR&GC.
Don’t forget, Diablo Rod and gun is associated with the CMP and fulfills that requirement when purchasing a garand! :-)
USI is not a club. Its a corporation that has a shooting range(s). It is comprised of several clubs. I have been a member with the Diablo Rod and Gun Club there for about 15 years. There are a bunch of shooting events with Diablo and membership is very reasonable compared to other clubs throughout the Bay Area. Check it out…http://diablorodandgun.com/
