By The Numbers
The SHOT Show is the biggest trade convention for a hunting and shooting sports market that registered $3.3 billion in sales in 2005. No surprise, the show itself is vast.
Aptly named and overcrowded, the 29th annual SHOT (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade) Show will pack in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando on Jan. 11-14, offering a mind-blowing smorgasbord for the serious outdoorsman.
"SHOT show is the place where all the manufacturers unveil their latest and greatest," said Steve Wagner, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. "Everything a hunter or shooter could ever need or wish for is in this place. If you enjoy hunting or shooting, this is the world's largest toy store."
