Since our initial coverage of the 2008 Shot Show, the world’s largest firearms, law enforcement and outdoor enthusiast’s conventions all rolled into one wonderful package, this “sportsman’s paradise” has been one of our favorite annual events. Each year, we bring our readers unprecedented access to the convention floor in the form of videos with leading industry affiliates, coverage of the hottest industry events and after-parties, high resolution photographs and videos of some “really cool stuff”, and of course, a feature from Media Day at the Range. In addition, Sin City Press will be running our annual Tactical Knife Review, which pits exciting models from the most advanced cutlery manufactures in the world against each other within the framework of our very own 13 point performance test. We will begin collecting sample submissions from cutlery suppliers on-site during the first day of the convention through its completion, and will also be utilizing our mail-in submission program as well. Our goal for 2016 is to evaluate 13 models via our 13 point test. The culmination of this will be a 4,000 word feature which will include in-depth reporting of our findings, exciting performance videos, and recommendations for future improvements to the best tactical knives on the planet!
In addition, this will be the first year that Sin City Press will feature our Tactical Showcase: an ongoing feature which will review several products within the fields of military, security, law enforcement and advanced outdoor gear. We will begin accepting product submissions during the 2016 ShotShow, and will welcome the review of industry leading products all year long! We in the Features Department welcome feedback from our readership regarding both the Tactical Knife Review and brand-new Tactical Showcase, and look forward to providing you with state-of-the-art coverage of what promises to be the best Shot Show ever!
