This years SHOT show was a bit different than last year. There were way more interesting releases in the gun market. Also, there were some leaps in the gear market as well, to include ammunition. But there were also changes in the personalities of the convention as a whole. For example, there was alot more armed security this year and alot less swag. Also, I noticed that manufacturers this year were very specific and strict about who could be on camera speaking about the products they were releasing. Just alot of new stuff was going on this year, and I found it quite odd.
I often hear people talking about how they dress around the gun they want to wear or how they pick the gun that suits their wardrobe choice for that particular day. I personally do both depending on my mood and what I am doing. Sometimes, I choose a pistol that I want to carry, then decide on a set of clothing that is appropriate for what I am doing that day. For the most part, I do this in the winter time. Realistically, I mostly roll around in a hoody all year around in Alaska, which sets me up to carry full sized guns with relative ease. But then there are days in the summer where I just cruise around in a t-shirt and jeans. In that case, I will have to choose a pistol that fits my clothing choice.
