In just under a week the NJGF crew will be heading to Shot Show in Vegas. This year there will be 3 forum members going and will be there for the extent of the show.
So... any guns or aspects of the show you want to make sure are covered?
On my list right now are the new Glock twins, 43X and 48 and the new Colt King Cobra.
Anyone from here going?
Things are finally freeing up a tad here and will be able to attend. NJGF will be represented by @Krdshrk and myself. We will be attending the show and the invite only Media Day at the Range.
I do have one more invite available as part of our crew, although it is time sensitive. If you are interested in going, let me know. Dates are Jan 21st through 25th.
Just got back from Media Day 2012 for Shot Show. Holy crap, what an epic day.
Shot out to 960 meters with a 416 Barret, shot clays with 3 gun open guns, and $$$$ Browning shot guns, blasted steel with high end Sphinx IPSC guns, shot both semi auto suppressed Kriss Vectors, and Select Fire SBR Kriss Vectors, Suppressed 300 AAC Blackout S&W M&P 15 rifle? check. Wasted hundreds of dollars of Winchester zombie ammo? Check. Shot over priced HK, cause we're better than you rifles? Check. Shot the brand new Sig P224 and chatted with the lead designer of the gun? Check. How about a new pocket 45 XD Slim? Check.
Chatted with Jerry Mucilek, Rob Leathen, JJ, Taran, Rob Pincus, and all the other who's who in the shooting community.
Wayyyyyyyyy tooo much fun. Ask away, and will be sure to put it into the blog entry with some videos.
This is by far, the most fun Jon and I have had at the range. EVER!
Virologists already determined its just a matter of time before its spreading in the US.
What most countries do, like with h1n1, is they quarantine people only if they are sick, and those in direct contact
As you pointed out, the economic impact is far worse if we just shut down everything for a prolonged period of time.
A more systematic approach will develop with the coronavirus.
My sister works in Milan... they are NOT shutting anything down.. even when one of her coworkers is confirmed infected.. they sent home a few employees who had direct contact.
China quarantines have been going on for weeks now...
So what else changed yesterday?
So, you still haven't figured out that the hysteria is connected to the viral population dynamics.. that these governments are trying to starve off the early stages... through quarantines...
Production will be shut down for as long as they believe they are controlling the viral cycle.. and inherently its transmittance...
The only reason we saw a drop in the market was because the CDC warned of increased chances of it spreading, and a few more major countries initiating quarantines. Either way the hysteria will eventually die off.
One of 2 things will happen in the next 2-3 months... either quarantines work, and we will see the economy slowly recover... or we will stop trying to quarantine and the economy will slowly recover.
Short term this is a very big issue... but i cant see an argument that this will tank the economy for the foreseeable long term on its own...
Factor in another global crisis and you could make that point.
