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!
I've been saying that for over a month, go back and look at the Wuhan virus thread. I said the risk was more economic and fear, not health.
You are the one, in this thread, until just now, who has been referencing the virus itself as the risk and health issue. I'm glad you finally see the light now.
That's true, the market, for the last few years, has been overdue for a correction. Then, add this on top of it, and it could push the globe into a MAJOR recession. Remember that that other thread the other day about 1 in 3 people running out of money before their next paycheck? What will this economic downturn do to them?
Unfortunately, 80% of the market is controlled by "the machines", and when they get a sniff of bad news, they start feeding on each other, and there's nothing the humans can do at that point.
Wait, what??? I said that the other day in the same thread I mentioned above, and you told me everything is going great, and there were no issues? When did you change THAT tune? The trend lines have been down since last Fall, if this Wu-Flu issue grabs hold, 1st and 2nd quarters this year will be bad.
I dont suggest that all didnt have an impact on the market as a whole, and people have been calling for a pullback, that the market was over valued for 2 years now... all of what you said would have played a major role in a market correction sooner than later.. let's call this the kindling...
Did this cause a massive sell off on the 25th? I doubt it.. most of those market fears have been around since last year...
But on that day the CDC opens its mouth and the DOW drops that much? Almost every market report I read yesterday blamed it primarily on the CDCs report and the obvious projected economic issues that accompany it. Could we compare this to a spark?
This years market outlook was already not looking great from decembers reports, calling for economic stagnation... most companies were not projecting much growth already. Yet, the market remained relatively stable.
I do find it Interesting that china pulled back production because of quarantines over 2 week ago... and interestingly enough that the US market payed little attention to it. So why the delay? Did people actually think they had this under control over there? I don't know.
@Sniper this has nothing to do with the virus itself, and is 100% based on how people are responding to it..
