What a great time with Team Sofrep who was all over Shotshow 2023!

Sofrep Radio host Aaron ” Rad” Radl was boots on the ground grabbing interviews, shooting rifles, pistols, including a Springfield 10mm Pistol, Bergara Rifle system, 350 Remington, 338 lapua, and a freaking cool Carl Gustav Airsoft grenade launcher for wargames!

2023 Shotshow did not disappoint. New products from Bolle, Drifire, Flux, Faxom, Browning, Steiner Optics, Crye Precision(modern nanm jacket) Lancer Tactical, Spiritus Dryfire Mag, and more.

Ya know, I really like that Shot Show has cut down on the registrations to the event for only Industry professionals which makes the convention well worth the trip knowing its deal time.

I also liked seeing the Media/Podcast area and thought it was a nice touch and will have to look into that next year cough shotshow cough

In the “new exhibit space” where photos are not allowed we saw (Tactical legos, gun rack systems, thermal scopes , body armor and Bison Jerkey.

ShotShow is a great place to network , create deals, and attend exclusive after parties where the deals are finalized for example at the Grayman and Company after party, what a great time in that venue full of spirits, dancing, and acrobatics and let’s not forget the chandeliers upon entering the venue swayed like you were in a timwarp as you brush shoulders with the likes of Ian Mcollum from Forgotte Weapons, David, Myself and of course other heads of the industry mingaling and talking shop while sipping on pineapple rum (captains of industry. )

Shotshow for me (Rad) is always a good time, last couple years with the pandemic made shot show a baron landscape of empty booth space, lack of innovation , and just a stale smell in the air, this year 2023 was the exact opposite. I did notice a bit of a smaller Range day perhaps it was compressed for our walking/legs however, the show floor was a sea of people in plaid , khaki , and team polo shirts which are back in full force (check out my personal loadouts in the vlog)
