I'll be there first day of the convention to start my birthday celebration... :D

I went three years ago and have been dying to go back but "stuff" always happened...

Anyone else? Are there any Calguns buttons to wear? :D

I am going. Not sure which day or days yet but I will be there. You can't miss me, I am extremely handsome and my piercing gaze has been known to burn holes in exposed flesh. Sexy.

I'll be there with another member for Saturday. On Friday night I'll be in the front row to see KA. It's gonna be an awesome 3 day. KA, than SHOT than Super Bowl (at home of course).

I'll be sporting this somewhere on my shirt or on the badge holder:

probably the cirque de soleil (sp?) thingy... that was the only thing i could come up with... well my first guess was "knights armament" but i didn't figure they'd have "front seat tickets" to check out their booth...

Any body have experience with how strict they are about taking pictures inside the show?

Yup it's the Cirque Du Soleil thingy. I saw a few of their original shows and they were cool but ho-hum as far as entertainment. Than I caught La Reve (a Cirque du Solei-esque show) at Winn a few months back and was just amazed. KA should be an experience, any show with "postindustrial apocalypse", "greeted with violence" and "wheel of death" is going to be interesting. If you have never seen a show like these shows you are missing out big time. Calling them a circus act or a musical is like saying a 16" Para FAL shoots like a 22lr. I was blown away at what I saw and I expect to be blown away this time. If your already there I suggest going as these shows start late in the evening. It ain't cheap though $100-$200 per ticket. Oh and let's not forget Monty Python's Spamalot, I'll probbaly catch it next time.

Pictures, Video, Holographic recorder, it's all good. I mean how else are we going to keep records of scandily clad women holding guns? Booths to hit: Magpul. FN, LMT, Colt, Kel-tec, Surefire, Pentagon.

Is there a bar we could meet at after the Show on Sat? Some place that serves food as well so we could eat dinner once everyone showed up and we were done talking smack?

hofbrauhaus????

never been there so don't know what the food/drink is like but maybe worth a look?

probably something away from the strip would be good being it such a big weekend and all.

Hofbrauhaus looks interesting...

I would prefer Saturdays because I won't be staying too long on Sunday before driving back down to the I.E.

How about also a group gathering in the show on Saturday at a certain time? I don't know what booth but maybe someone could suggest one...

"Attendance Rules

NO PHOTOGRAPHY STRICTLY ENFORCED! Taking photos of Exhibitor property is forbidden at the SHOT SHOW except by those wearing valid SHOT SHOW Press Badges. Surveillance equipment is in use 24/7. Violators risk confiscation of SHOT SHOW badge and eviction from the premises. "

Fyi, people do try to sneak pics, but I don't know if it's worth risking getting kicked out of the show.

Usually there are several excellent show recaps w/ cool pics from guys w/ press passes on the various forums showing all the cool new stuff anyways.

P.S. Elmer will be in da house... :D

as the old saying goes, "no harm in asking" ask the people of the booth, if they are not busy, if they would mind if you took a couple of pictures.

So have anyone made definitely plans to meet up? Or are we gonna walk around the exhibit floor flashing special Calgunner hand signals so we know we are Calgunners? :D
