2012 SHOT is just around the corner. Who's going? In year's past, many of us Calguns attendees have met up for lunch and/or dinner.

post up if you want to meet for lunch/dunner, and what days work best for you.


update 1-11-12

OK, the tuesday night dinner will be at 7PM at the Cravings at the Mirage. PM me for my cellphone number to help meet up there for the Tuesday dinner.

those that want to meet up on other days will need to co-ordinate it themselves. I will be leaving Thursday afternoon so I won't be attending

I'll be there but my personal schedule is too full. I'll probably just run into bweise since he'll be the tallest person there! LOL!

No SHOT show for me this year.
My wife's brain cancer has come back so I have to stay home and take care of her.

I'll be there this year as always! Would love to meet up for lunch or dinner.

Was finally able to get my press pass this year, so looking forward to going out and being able to post photos on my blog. Will be posting them there after each day of the event if anyone isn't going and is interested: 2012 Shot Show Photos (http://firearmsindustrynews.com/2012-shot-show-photos/)

I'm planning on getting there Monday and staying all week. But, my plans are still tenative. I'm up for food any time. I know I gotta eat at least once a day so, why not eat with other calgunners?

it is an industry event. attendees includes FFLs (dealers, manufacturers and even C&R FFL holders:D ), non-FFL retailers and manufacturers, media people, and who ever else can sneak their way in :D.

You need to be in the industry to attend. I just don't want you to show up and not be able to get in.

I'm there Monday through Wednesday night. Only doing two days at the show. Right now I'm not doing anything in the evenings since my friend who I was going to do a photoshoot with out there got booked by her agency to do something on those days. So unless my model casting call pans out, I'm just going to be at the poker table at night.

Both of us will be there Monday through Thursday.. Signed up to the Glock Armorour class on Thursday, but nights are free.

I'm guessing that tuesday night and thursday night would work best (wed night already booked up for the CGF dinner). Any preferences on places to eat? buffets are good since we don't have to worry as much about getting enough tables together for everyone to sit together.

Please do Tuesday night as several of us are leaving on Thursday afternoon.

tuesday is a definite for me, we just need to decide where.

as for people staying until Friday, they'll need to coordinate what they want to do on thursday.

doesn't really matter to me. As I mentioned before, Buffets work fine for me, cheap and easy to get enough room for everyone without having to get reservations.

Does anybody have any suggestions wheree they want to eat?

Why don't you just take the lead and set a location & time. I would think that buffet should be fine with everyone.

How about Cravings at the Mirage? It's #8 on the list, very close to the convention center and priced well.

I will be there all week as well, so if anyone wants to hang out just get in touch. Dont want to commit to the dinners but I can talk guns (especially C&R stuff) while watching sports, playing video poker, or having a beer (or any combination of those things all at once). This is of course scheduled around walking through the show all day.

I will also have wifi access and be in the NSSF member lounge from time to time so I might post from there or see if anyone wants to meet up for lunch or something. Would be especially interested in meeting any NorCal people. Everyone stay safe and have fun, its getting close!
