Testing a rifle at the 2013 SHOT Show's Media Day at the Range in Las Vegas, Nevada

Charlotte, North Carolina - Sitting at gate C13 of Charlotte Airport makes one realize that C13 is an afterthought. A view of the Phillips Crab House customers as they enjoy the final minutes of 49er vs. Panthers means little those of us on the outside of the big glass wall. Some are happy, some are sad, but most of us have no idea what's going on outside this little cubbyhole of a gate.

The Buck Knives Paklite FieldMaster kit

Las Vegas, Nevada - Design is meant to catch the eye. A creative curve, a subtle edge or a flash of paint to jumpstart the consumer's desire. And if happens to be an incredibly versatile product designed by an American mainstay like Buck Knives, then there's a chance we're talking about more than design.

At the 2013 SHOT Show, one of the products to fit such a description was the Buck Knives Paklite FieldMaster kit.

Top Shot favorite stops by Brownells/NRA luncheon to meet young shooters

Top Shot favorite Gabby Franco speaks to the Brownells/NRA Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas Las Vegas, Nevada - Gabriela “Gabby” Franco has been in high demand as of late. Not only is she a sought after NRA Certified Instructor in the Miami area, but she's also making personal appearances, serving as pistol instructor for local police departments and competing in a variety of tournaments. Probably not what she was expecting after finishing in the top six of History Channel's Top Shot competition … probably a lot more.

That is why we were so grateful to have her speak at the 2013 Brownells/NRA Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors luncheon at this year's SHOT Show. With parents, chaperons and industry representatives gathered round, Gabby took to the podium and explained how shooting helped focus the truly important aspects of life.

Maker of NRA's Knife of the Year finds fans at SHOT Show

Knives from Silver Stag on display at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas, Nevada - Fourteen years ago, on the shores of Semiahmoo Bay, Brad Smith was tired of daily grind. Employed by a major sunglass manufacturer, the days had grown long and the work unrewarding. He needed a change.

Reaching back into family history, to the skills and lessons passed on years ago by his grandfather, he left the workplace to pursue what was then a hobby — knife-making. A decision that spurred the creation of Silver Stag Knives.

After Top Shot, Terry Vaughan planning to embrace the open range and mountain tops of Wyoming

Top Shot Terry Vaughan at the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada

Earlier this week, told you about Top Shot Englishman Terry Vaughan and his experience after the History Channel show. At the end there was talk of his move to Wyoming. Here's how it happened:

Las Vegas, Nevada - Moving from one end of the pond to another doesn't sound like that big of a deal. But it is when the pond you're referring to is the Atlantic Ocean. That's what Terry Vaughan — former dancer, British Royal Marine Commando and Top Shot contestant — did a number of years ago.

Now in the states, as a nationally recognized expert on non-verbal communications and an experienced NRA Certified Instructor, he is making another move. Not across the pond, but across the nation. That's right, he's picking up the business, the wife and the kids and moving them all to Wyoming.

Apparently Top Shot colleague Tim Trefren is to blame.
