    Are you a part of ANY organization/business that is related to the firearms industry?

    I got in as part of a shooting club looking at equipment we want to use :dunno:

    No.... I was pretty close to getting a job with STI International though. :hs: I'm pretty sure they have a booth there.

    I've been two years in a row, as an exhibitor. I took pictures EVERYWHERE the first year. Never even saw anyone that might enforce the rules. Didn't have time to take very many pictures last year, but I still saw no one to enforce.

    If you want to take a DSLR, I'd say it's a safer bet to figure out a way to get a press pass. Otherwise, bring a P&S that you can tuck away quickly. Any SLR will stand out, especially when that whole show centers around what your tag has on it. Also, a press pass gets people to show you more, and to talk to you more. Probably more than any other tag you can have. I'd love to have a Guest of the Show pass. Wish I were going this year.

    I should be going this time around as well. We'll see how school funding works out for the plane tickets. I wish it was in Orlando this time, it would make it so much easier.

    If anyone is interested in tickets I am sure I can get you in, you just need to pay for your ticket.
