Shot Show 2018 Convention Las Vegas Part Four

Shot Show 2018 Las Vegas Convention Coverage – Part Four

Most of the exhibitors I wanted to see were covered in bulk on day one. Day two, three and four were spent playing find this specific exhibitor in a sea of exhibitors.

Shot Show Flu

Before heading out to Shot Show I heard about the dreaded “Shot Show flu”. At the time it made complete sense. 65,000 people touching and handling the same products on display. Surely, at least one of those out of the thousands had some kind of illness.

To avoid getting sick afterwards, I asked my doctor about taking those mega doses of Vitamin C. According to him and the studies he’s read, taking large doses of vitamin C does work, slightly, but only when you take it for the entire course of the flu season. You can’t just take vitamin C in excess a week before Shot Show and expect it to work magically.

Instead, I armed myself with a bottle of hand sanitizer and avoided eating anywhere near the convention. You can’t expect every single food serving worker to wash their hands while handling food. That’s just fantasy. For lunch I left every day to eat elsewhere. I used hand sanitizer religiously. It’s amazing how many hands you will shake, even if you don’t want to shake hands with people. It’s something you just naturally end up doing.

Luckily, I can report, I did not leave home with the Shot Show flu!



Shot Show 2018 was an excellent experience! I’m looking forward to Shot Show 2019 next! The more sections I walked, the more I discovered. Exhibitors I missed were just a few feet away from where I had just walked. The show is so big that you will get completely distracted turn after turn.

The press room was convenient, and I really liked how exhibitors had private meeting rooms away from the main floors. All of the exhibitors I met with were extremely friendly and just as enthusiastic about the industry as I was.
