SHOT Show 2017 in 99 Pictures

Every year, I try to dedicate a post to my favorite pictures from SHOT. Here’s a look at SHOT Show; the guns, the gear, behind the scenes, in front of the scenes, and everything in between.

    Since I’m at work I only clicked on the ones with women.

  • QuadGMoto

    Didja have to throw in that second to last picture? Now I’m scrambling for the mind bleach!

    • Gary Kirk

      That was for iksni..

      • VanDiemensLand

        Hahaha, he’ll love it!

        • iksnilol

          Was about to mention it was probably meant for me… yeah, I am glad i got a reputation to uphold.

    • Edeco

      Really crappy plywood-looking ceiling – what hotel was that?

      • derpmaster

        Second on this. I’ve been in some awful Vegas hotels but that one looks really skeezy.

        • James Reeves

          SLS. I was there for one night since my res at TI was botched.

  • ArkhamInmate

    Screw you guys, I’m going home. 😛 Great work this year. You most certainly had more articles posted in the time a bee takes to find home plate than any other site (looking at you TTAG). [Thumbs up!!]

  • A bearded being from beyond ti

    How was the recoil on the MP7 in full-auto?

    Also, what’s with the random Ghost Recon ad? Could you play it there?

    • James Reeves

      I have a vid coming up on it. Non-existent. Press, hold, and a laser beam of 4.6mm rounds sprays out of hole at front of gun.

      • Quest

        Technically, at what range you could keep most projectiles at a torso size target?

        • James Reeves

          The first time I fired this gun, I dumped a mag at 25m and got 100% hits in the torso. I wish I had not gotten rid of my target, but it should be visible on the video (I hope).

  • BlueMarlin Blues

    It would be cool as hell to meet Jerry Miculek. HERE WE GO

  • some other joe

    Is the pup in 26 freaked out by the fake pup in 27?

  • Phil

    What’s the story with the DL-44 in picture 43?

    • Tim

      That’s what I was wondering too. I certainly missed that at the show!

    • James Reeves

      It was in a booth *right* behind Kriss in the LE basement. I try to leave no stone unturned.

    • DW

      It’s an airsoft replica from Armorer Works (WE)

  • Minuteman

    My vote goes to 69: “Why me? Is this really necessary?”

  • .45

    What are those “things” in number 25?
