The Faces of SHOT Show

These are just some of the folks who've made SHOT Show what it is.

Every year, the SHOT Show crowd becomes bigger and more diverse. But one thing holds them all together: their true passion for shooting sports.

We interacted with several people who, in various ways, helped shape SHOT Show into the spectacular event it always is. If you ever see any of these faces, know they belong to the community of firearms, ammo and hunting gear experts that make this industry great.
