Hey, welcome aboard and glad ya found us. If SHOT was happening in Texas and not Florida, I'd do everything I could to try and attend. But, it's just too far away.
I used to go to the NAMM(Nat. Assoc. of Music Merchants) show in dallas every couple of years. Not sure why SHOT is always in Vegas or FL. Texas would be nice. I'm glad its not in vegas this year. The last three years there have gotten old. A change of venue will be nice.
I have to go shoe shopping before I go......that show is tough on the soles.
Welcome. Sorry to hear about your cdrw drive. Floppies don't work either. School of hard knocks. I have free room and board should I go to the shot show in Florida since I have family there but alas- it's just to far for me from Northwestern Montana and I may die of heat stroke once I got there.
