A very good idea Bryan, thank you./wp-content/forum-smileys/anim_beer.gif Have fun at Shot! Well, it seems like I'm the first to made a request. I'd like to see the new Crimson Trace lasergrips for the 1911. IMHO they seem pretty expensive, are they worth it?

Well a hands on report on the Keltec KSG would be awesome along with some more pics. /wp-content/forum-smileys/icon_cool.gif Oh yeah, and swing by the ATS booth and bug them about re-releasing the Cobra pack. /wp-content/forum-smileys/smiley_evilGrin.gif One more, go by the AmericanSnipers.org booth because those guys rock. /wp-content/forum-smileys/sf_headbang.gif

How about an assesment of what is happening in the footwear world (combat type)?  There seems to be a lot of new styles being released and it would be nice to see how everything compares (first impressions).  And....could you ask around if anyone is making something in a narrow width?V/r - AV

I am interested in the A-TACS uniforms for sure.  Also, I would like to see some heavy coverage of some of the smaller makers that are there.  There is always a ton of coverage for Eagle, Proper, etc... (I want to see that too!) Basically I want heavy coverage of EVERYTHING as if I were actually there.  NOW, make it happen.

Since I'm the one holding down the fort for the ITS Crew, what I'm going to do is start a new thread for each day of the show.Please go to that thread to post your new requests for that day.  I'll do all the updates in those threads for those requests.  This way I can manage each day instead of trying to keep up with a single thread.Keep in mind I'm on Eastern time and Vegas is Mountain.  Please hold your requests until I unlock the thread then blast away.  For you guys who have already posted here I'll update your requests in this thread since were already underway. That being said, feel free to start any new threads you like about the SHOT Show!  This forum area is for you to discuss anything SHOT. Thanks for everyones patience, this is a new concept for ITS and we hope to make it fun and informative.If anyone has any questions let me know! ~Eric S.

Hey CCS!First, I'd like to say, AWESOME IDEA!! /wp-content/forum-smileys/sf_headbang.gifI'd like to make a couple of very specific requests, but I don't particularly care what order of when they occur, I hope its okay if I post them here. If not, please let me know so I can move them.1st: I'd like to see some photos of the Leupold Stevens Tactical booth... I did a photo shoot with a  buddy who is their graphics, photo and packaging designer and, in theory, one of those photos is going to be the backdrop for Leupold's Tactical booth (also in the tactical catalog and calendar)./wp-content/forum-smileys/icon_cool.gif2nd: I'm saving towards a Patriot Ordinance Factory P308-MRR-20... POF has recently come out with a new forearm and finishes, and I'm hoping the ITS SHOT team can get some feedback/first impressions, and pics of them, if at all possible. Cheers and good hunting guys!!/wp-content/forum-smileys/anim_beer.gif~Aaron O~

Kingkroupa - The Kel-Tec KSG, and this is my own personal opinion, was pretty sweet! It's a great idea, but without shooting it myself, I wonder how well it runs. Throwing a red dot on there with slugs in one tube and buck shot in the other, you can handle threats both near and far. Also, if you add a vertical grip, you can really pump that thing fast! Oh, not to mention that it's short but still legal. Should be great for home defense.

Kingkroupa & walrus61 - The American Sniper guys were totally awesome! Very cool! I got their old coin and their new one. Great to support such a good cause.

ericfine50 & jinx667 - A-TACS vs Multicam: There was a ton of A-TACS gear around which is a great thing. It shows advancement. While walking around I overheard some guys talking about A-TACS vs Multicam and they were saying that while A-TACS isn't necessarily pretty, it works better than Multicam. The thing to keep in mind is that there is no silver bullet when it comes to camo, just look at any of our past camo comparisons!

Ton of multicam pics here (and on the rest of the Flickr coverage) and A-TACS (all of the pics are semi scattered)

Well guys, I just finished posting the last of the pics and 'captions' in the forum to the 2011 SHOT Show requests. Thanks for all the suggestions of cool things to check out and I'm sorry if we weren't able to get to yours. It was just mayhem there! We'll work on some techniques and processes to try for next years SHOT Show though. Really, thanks again for being a part of SHOT Show. We were more than happy to bring you coverage straight from the floor and hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did! Thanks for all the kind words too, you guys are the best! /wp-content/forum-smileys/sf_headbang.gif
