Last minute absent-mindedness can lead to SHOT Show madness in Vegas

Southwest Airlines gate at Reagan National Airport

Alexandria, Virginia - We're all human ... my thanks to the peanut gallery for the audible, "duh". My point being that as human beings we are imperfect by design. Be it by way of driving skills, computer ability, business acumen, or ability to catch a ball, there's something amiss in those primordial architectural plans that allow us to reveal in our imperfections. One of my greatest? I forget. Oh yea, memory.

What would SHOT Show have been like 160 years ago?

SHOT Show 1855 Fairfax, Virginia - Since beginning in 1979, SHOT Show has become one of the premier firearms industry event of the year. Those who are able to attend circle the date on their calendars; those who are unable curse under their breath.

New guy takes National Firearms Museum on the road to first SHOT Show

View of the Las Vegas strip from the Venetian Hotel

Fairfax, Virginia - When I came to the NRA in January 2014 as the Firearms Specialist, I missed the SHOT Show by a week. (Why I thought they’d send the brand new guy even if I had been there is something I hadn’t thought about!)

At any rate, plans for the 2015 SHOT Show are well underway and it will be my inaugural attendance. Add to that fact that I’m the only NRA Museums staff member going and it could prove to be a baptism by fire.

What goes into planning the NRA Museums’ involvement at SHOT Show, you ask? Well, first and foremost, we have to decide what firearms we’re going to display in the booth. This involves a number of questions, including: what are our themes, what went last year, what are the crowd favorites, and so on.

From the Nevada Department of Wildlife - Nevada implements Bighorn Eve hunts to manage growing populations

Now that you can hunt a Big Horn Sheep Ewe in Nevada, this won't be the only horn of your list - image courtesy of  Nevada Department of Wildlife's Facebook Page Reno, Nevada - The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners voted in their January/February 2014 meeting to allow bighorn sheep ewe hunting at the recommendation of the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW). The first ever ewe hunt was a decision of last resort based on several factors of bighorn sheep management. Bighorn sheep are now facing issues of overpopulation.

"Nevada has been highly successful in restoring bighorn sheep since the first bighorn release occurred in 1968," said NDOW big game biologist Mike Cox. "Bighorn populations went from an estimated 3,000 to 11,000 and we have become victims of our own success."

Drought conditions, disease, competition for forage and high population growth rates have all contributed to several bighorn herds exceeding their sustainable management levels ... find out more about Nevada's first bighorn sheep Ewe hunting season ...
