I know it's a little (2 months) early but when you get there I'll sure be grateful for for any details on the Compact M&P45c, and any word on an Officers sized (short grip) SW1911. Something along the dimensions of Kimber's Compact CDP. http://www.kimberamerica.com/pistols/cdp/compactcdp.php

I'd love to go myself it's only a few hours drive and I need to get out but it's supposed to be open to FFLs only. I used to go every year back in the olden days when Las Vegas hosted COMDEX.

You can get in on a C&R license, which I have.

A C&R license is a FFL for collectors of Curio & Relic firearms, very good examples are the SKS, the Moison Nagant, the Mauser rifles, most antique firearms. It is a Federal Firearms License, but its for the collector, you can't use it for a business, strictly for the individual, it allows you to order antiques that are on the C&R list directly from the importers, you don't need to have a qualifying firearm transferred through a dealer. It also gets you discounted prices on many items from Midway, Brownells, and Grafs. It costs $30 for the C&R and it lasts 3 years.



Here's more info: http://www.surplusrifle.com/shooting2005/h...ffl03/index.asp



With a C&R you can order qualified arms from Century, AIM, SOG and a lot of other surplus dealers, as an example, go to AIM's website, click on the used and surplus firearms, then look for the listings with the C&R logo, those are the qualifying arms.

I thought the Shot Show wasn't open to the public?


Nope, industry insiders only. I didn't even think that an FFL was enough to get you in. I thought that you had to be deemed worthy. - JM.

Any FFL will get you in the door of the SHOT Show.
