For a few years now I have vicariously enjoyed the SHOT show from the reports Koshkin has posted here on opticstalk.  I cannot find anything for this years event, am I not looking in the right places?

He will probably have something up soon. It only ended a bit ago.

He had a couple other trade shows to attend and I dont' think he has had time to get his thoughts on paper.  Give him time.

Ilya is working on the review for the 2011 shot show, it just isn't ready to go to press yet.

I am still working on it guys.

These things tend to take me a while, since I do not publish anything until I have had a chance to think about it.  Just a pet peeve of mine.  Apparently, a fair number of people read through my assorted ramblings and I have too much respect for my audience to put anything, but my best effort into it.

It may take me a little while longer than it does people who blog in real time, but I stand behind every word that goes into my articles.

All right.  

I will go ahead and do something that really goes against my grain, but I am so time-strapped that I see no other choice.

I have not yet processed the pictures and the text needs another editing run or two.  However, in order to stop the constant stream of death threats I started receiving approximately 8 seconds after the SHOT show wrapped up, I will go ahead and post the test in its present form on the website.  I will then go ahead and keep updating it with photos as I go along.

Check my website in about an hour.

Thanks Mr. Ilya Koshkin! A Shot Show is not complete without your report.

Just finished a fast read of the review.  Fantastic as always Ilya
 
For the record, here is my favorite quote
 
"Image quality looked to be somewhere between bad and crappy"
 
Guess the manufacturer?
