I want to see you, with an Air Speed on hand, with two hot girls at each side of you, up close. And they better have JSAR half shirts on, lol.

I envy you, as Iíve always wanted to attend a SHOT SHOW. My neighbor is the CEO of Trijicon scopes. Heís big bucks man around here, especially since his company landed an account with the federal government and military for all night vision and heat seeking thermal vision. He was suppose to take me, but he let his ego and arrogance get in the way of our friendship, so good bye to that offer.

Defiantly on my bucket list. Have fun, Travis!

It's on my bucket list to attend as a representative of GTA International Airgun Forums with a media pass. But being held in January, it always sneaks up on me as I recover from the holidays. Maybe next year I'll be close enough to retirement to make the trip. Teresa and I have been to Vegas a few times and have enjoyed every visit. But I want to wander around the Shot Show, meet folks, rub elbows and hand out GTA paraphernalia.

I would say that's why I'd take Teresa. But it's more like I'll be her Sherpa.

I saw where Armour-lite and Iso-Brite watches will have a booth near the main entrance. Stop there for a minute and look around. I have an IsoBrite and am very impressed with it.
