SHOT Show Gunblogger Luncheon AAR

I can sum up the 2013 SHOT Show Gunblogger luncheon in one simple word: WOW.

When you get Oleg Volk, Molly Smith (who is only a few years older than my son, talk about having an old minute...), Yamil Sued, a good chunk of Downrange Firearms Training, and a bunch of gun writers and bloggers at a lunch sponsored by Brownells, you know you're in for a good time. Pete Brownells opened the lunch with a "state of the state" talk and was very complimentary towards the blogging community, which was very appreciated and well-received.

We had an impromptu discussion on gun rights, the state of modern media, bloggers, online communities, and acting as ambassadors. We also had a lovely lunch at the Grand Lux Cafe - and filled one of their function rooms. I grabbed Matt DeVito of Downrange Firearms Training to see what he'd heard about the proposed gun laws at one point, and listened to the folks from Great Satan Inc. talk about shooting with Rob Leatham. Sat next to Dan Hall from GunUp for the actual lunch portion, and even got to meet the Tactical Mennonite...

Thanks to Kevin for putting this together and to Brownells for supporting us.

That is all.
