So far today I've spent most of the morning talking. Showing up early I got into a discussion of SHOT show blogger vetting, old and new media, etc w/ Kathy Jackson from Concealed Carry Magazine.
Jay G. and I got into a discussion w. Stephanie Sanford, NRA Media Liason over interactions w/ the blogging community. It was a very pleasant discussion where we discussed how we hoped to continue the positive relationship that has developed over the years.
STG-44 replica to ask a few questions. Mentioned the fact that there's been issues w/ feeding on some of their replicas. They stated that's usually due to using standard velocity ammo when they require high velocity. Got some more details as well. 25 rnd magazine w/ extra mags at $40 ea.
Swung back around and ran into ISRA Pres. Don Moran talking to Alan Gottlieb of the SAF. They both enjoyed the story of the little protest that couldn't.
After 6 years of talking online and working together to backhand the
anti's, I finally got to meet one of my best online friends, 45Superman. We got together for a couple drinks (mine non-alc., I was
driving) at his favorite pub.
And then it was back home. Tomorrow I'll clean up the posts for easy linkage and post my final thoughts including all the bloggers I met, saw again, etc.
