    SHOT show was awesome *pics added

    Went yesterday, walked around all day and had a great time. Got like 200 pics, I'll get them up as soon as I figure out how I can host them.

    Funny thing, tons of people there were taking pics and no one seemed to care. I was telling my father how overpriced and shit the LaRue stuff is. I took 2 pictures from about 10 feet away of their booth, and some jackass (didn't get his name) came and grabbed me, asked for my press pass, actually made me delete the pictures I took of his booth, asked to look through my pictures to make sure there weren't any more that included his booth (this is where I started laughing in his face, like his shit is something special compared to everything else there :rofl:) and said my camera was going to get taken away...keep in mind this was at the very end of the day after I had taken pics of everything. Not even the guys at the H&K or FBI/NCIS booths said anything about me taking pics :ugh:. If he was nice about it I wouldn't give a shit but he was a complete asshole, fucking jerkoffs.

    New Glock design is pretty cool, the grip definitely makes a huge difference in traction...slide serrations not so much and I'm not too big on how they look, but it's something different and I'm sure it will grow on me. Got Jessie Abbate's autograph too....she's fucking hot. The SCAR looks badass, not $8k badass but badass nonetheless. The only place I forgot to visit was the Magpul booth :(

    Oh and the Streamlight booth was pretty badass since you got to try out all the weaponlights and flashlights. I was very impressed with the Beretta 90-two as well...hadn't had a chance to hold one before this, feels very nice in the hand.

    I know I'm forgetting to mention some shit but the pics I took can say the rest :cool:

    Anyone got a reliable site to host this shit or should I just open another photobucket account and pray it lasts a little while? :hsd:

    *edit - here are the pics http:[email protected]/sets/72157612626052555/

    K, they're all in CR2 format so I have a lot of converting and resizing to do. I'll PM you for an e-mail address once I'm done.

    It's an AOL email address, so if it's a big file, it might not allow it. If not, run it through YouSendIt or the like.

    As great as remilled serrations and a new grip texture are, Glock needs to come out with a single stack subcompact 9mm already.

    I can't even remember if he actually laid his hands on me or not, but that's not what I meant by "grab". Must be the lingo I'm used to but where I'm from if you say "hey grab that guy over there and tell him to shut the fuck up" it's like saying to get someones attention, etc.

    :bowdown: in for sac riding

    As much as everyone tries to blow the arfcom vendors, I've had exclusively poor results with every single one of the most popular vendors, and this was long before the current insanity. LaRue sat on my upper forever, which I canceled after talking to them. Rainier didn't have a barrel that I bought as listed instock, then got more in, didn't ship mine, ran out again, etc because they lost my order.

    People are dieing to get this shit so anyone who has it is welcome to be a fuck head and you will deal with it.

    oh but I got some $5 nick nacks with my 2k order so I love you. :ugh:

    You are just too poor to afford LaRue and realize how awesome his products are.

    Actually I got ganked by larue too. Took a pic of the larue booth and some fool ran up on me. He was nice about it and asked me "excuse me, did you just take a pic of our booth?. I said "acutally I took a pic of some chick". I then showed him a pick of some chick not that attractive being shown their stealth upper by one of their sales men. I then added hey if you need me to delete this shit just say so. He said yes so i did but did so in such a manner he could not really tel. I stuck my camera back in my pocket and that's it.
