I hate SHOT Show.

It’s been more than half a week since it closed and my video feed is still filled with “The Ten Greatest Shotguns of 2024!!!” or “The Greatest Plastic Striker-Fired 9mm (that’s just like all the other plastic striker-fired 9mms) Ever!!!” or “All the overpriced red dots you can’t afford to show up at the range without!!!”

I like guns. I think I’ve made it clear that I like guns. I even hope to acquire a new handgun this year. (The same handgun I hoped to acquire last year.) But I guess I’m just not a consumer anymore. Once I probably would have found all this more intriguing.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Ah, the SHOT show… another round of marketing the latest and greatest reinvented wheel.

    Yes, it’s cool to look at all the new wiz bang thunder sticks and all the latest must have accessories to trick them out, but how many guns does a person really need? I know my days of spending hundreds, if not thousands, on a gun or on accessories are long gone. I guess I’ve just grown out of the taticool phase of life.

To the stake with the heretic!
