    A few pics from the 2023 Annual Hunting and Target Sports Show

    It was great to stop in at Shooters Choice for their 30 year anniversary Annual Hunting And Target Sports Show on my way to the Great Lakes Custom Knife show.

    There were tons of sales going and reps from several companies including these fine gents from Stoeger



    Adam of course



    Given my limited time, I was on a mission. First I wanted to check out the Pedersoli Lever Action Boarbuster in "HV-1 Camo". I don’t know much about Pedersoli but I can say the gun was high quality. The stock and grip had an interesting rubber-like coating and the scout style sights (with fiber optics) were pretty cool.







    Despite my love of knives and the deep discount, I passed on this Boker lol



    I did pick up a Hornady mug and got two swag caps, thanks for those!



    Next I headed upstairs for part two of my mission, to see the Excalibur TwinStrike. I was pleased to run into the Excalibur rep who I had met at the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show. He gave me a detailed rundown on the TwinStrike and I even got to shoot it!







    an over-under crossbow, how cool is that!



    this nifty hand crank draws the bows (yes BOWS in plural lol)







    cocked, locked, and ready to rock



    keep in mind this is my second time ever shooting a crossbow



    and I was very pleased with the result!





    I absolutely love this thing and will get definitely get one…as soon as I recover from the Great Lakes Custom Knife Show and TACCOM lol

    Thanks to Shooters Choice for the great event! I was super happy to talk to the rep and to shoot the TwinStrike!



    Now, before y’all ask, I ate at Lancaster Smokehouse. The last time I went there, I said it was not only the best ribs/brisket I have ever had, but possibly the best meal. I came to the same conclusion this time around! I can’t understand how they make it so good!

    The Lanc as it's known locally here turns out some pretty damn fine BBQ, most nights you can't get a parking spot at that place.

    A lot less traffic through the annual sale at Shooter's Choice this year? You couldn't move in that place during this sale pre pandemic. Don't see anyone in the background in your photos. Or did you get VIP access ahead of the doors opening?

    lol funny that topic came up. i typically try to avoid having other people in my pics. you are right that i often get early access but not in this case so we do things like wait till the background is empty, angle my shots, and if necessary i crop people out.

    i actually thought it was pretty busy...not to the point where you couldnt move but busy enough that you had to wait to talk to reps because they were serving other people.
