SHOT Show 2010 is now history

The SHOT Show is a wrap. And its numbers are huge.

The four day event held last week at the Sands Expo & Convention Center was a success, as reported by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.  The show is owned and sponsored by the NSSF, the firearms industry’s trade association.

The SHOT show is the world’s largest exposition of firearms, ammunition, outdoor and tactical apparel, optics, cutlery, camping and related products and services.

This event is important to the knife industry and the major knife companies exhibited. We’ll be getting their observations and forecast for this new year.

Interesting SHOT Show factoids-

  • 2010 Attendance- 58,444
  • Buyers- 31,280

Tune in for NSSF President Steve Sanetti’s State of the Industry address-

“With sales and revenues in much of our industry at a decade-long high despite the worst recession in a generation, we have thrived. I have to say that the state of the industry in 2010 is about as strong as I’ve seen it.”

NSSF President Steve Sanetti
