  • So there I was walking into the Sands Expo on Day 2 of Shot Show 2018 when I noticed that it wasn't the typical herding of cattle at a snail's pace. The hallways were actually filled with less people and I was able to make it to the Press Room with ease. Too many late night parties last night. So 15 extra minutes in bed could have saved them 15% or more in car insurance.

After enjoying some mixed fruit and pastries in the Press Room, I headed down to the booth to meet up with Matt and George from Evike. Matt and I hopped onto Facebook LIVE and we talked about the Strike Industries STRIKE Mag and Auto Mag Release as well as lucha libre wrestlers. Not necessarily in that order. After Matt and I were finished, I was able to snag a selfie with George and Moeguns Tactical.

Next up was a meet-up that I have been looking forward to, which was the Agency Arms Agent Round Up at the Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar. I have been an Agent of the Brotherhood since the summer of 2016 and have been crushing targets with my Urban Combat pistol ever since. I hadn't seen Mike and Randy from Agency Arms for a year and it was great to catch up with them. I also got to see Paul Van Dunk from S3F Solutions, which is always awesome because there are not very many people that are the same height as the Kaiju!

The rest of the day was filled with seeing new products and running into long time industry friends. I was able to see a few companies breaking the industry norm barriers with innovative products, such as the FightLite Industries SCR Pistol or the IWI US Tavor TS12 Bullpup Shotgun. And how could I not mention some of the coolest peeps on the planet, including Allen and Tim from Kriss Group, Rich and Ryan from Airsoft C3, and Garren and Greg from Double Tap Airsoft.
