NRA Pistol Manager meets with NRANews in Fairfax, Virginia headquarters

Fairfax, Virginia - Do you ever watch NRANews?

Maybe you only listen to them on SiriusXM Satellite Radio?

The only real difference between the two are the bumpers. So what's that?

Bumpers are the commercials that play between interviews. If you listen to the show on SiriusXM then you hear regular radio commercials. But if you watch Cam & Company on NRANews.com then you get the bumpers. Personally, I'm a bumpers guy. That's because the bumpers feature my people.

Lars Dalseide interviewed by NRANews at the 2012 SHOT ShowLas Vegas, Nevada - A number of media outlets are cruising around SHOT Show 2012 here in Las Vegas to get scoops on the latest and greatest items hitting the market this year.

One such outlet is our very own NRANews. Represented by NRANews producer (and sometimes correspondent) Cameron Gray, NRANews is always on there to catch the latest in firearm related news.

After covering all the shiny new objects at the show over the first two days, NRANews started pointing their camera at who's on the floor.

The biggest event of the year, SHOT is a who's who for the industry. It wouldn't be uncommon to see a company President or one of your favorite TV personalities (there's rumor floating around that Steven Tyler from AeroSmith/American Idol walked through earlier) as you make your way through the floor.
