Having pondered it for a short while, it is kind of hard for me to pinpoint exactly how many SHOT Shows I have been to. It hasn’t been as many as some people I know but suffice it to say it has been more than a few.
Shortly after the 2020 SHOT Show the guys at the Knife Perspective podcast asked me to come on and talk about what it takes to survive SHOT Show and how to get the most out of it.
After at least a decade of SHOT Shows I have had the opportunity to make a lot of great friends and get mildly used to the ebb and flow of the show. It was a lot of fun talking about some of the ins and outs of the industry’s biggest show in the United States.
Although it is only open to industry professionals, if you can find a way to make it to SHOT Show, I highly recommend it. But take your good walking shoes. You’ll thank me. K&G
