True dat. At least you're not waiting for the Glock store to open in Ottawa...

I like to hunt and am a proud Virginian. I've also lived in Pa, the mountains of Colorado and upstate NY among other places. Believe it or not I have never been anywhere besides Alaska where people are as into hunting as upstate NY. I know people think the north east is all yuppies and skinny jean hipster, but for every one of them there is someone decked out in mossy oak. I've come to realize fellow red necks are every where.
All normal people love meat. If I went to a barbeque and there was no meat, I would say 'Yo Goober! Where's the meat?'.- Homer Simpson
I (when visiting the in-laws in CT) was amazed by the redneck quotient of the Northeast. I think there are more in Mass. and CT than North and South Carolina together(well that's a stretch), but still.................
.......God bless the necks everywhere.
"See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

The northeast is chock a block with hunters and shooting sports enthusiasts.In PA the schools are closed on opening day of deer season! Daveb, I am not sure why you would be concerned about this topic?
There is a big show in Harrisburg PA February 1-9
Jim, I was not disparaging anyone in NE or anywhere else, not sure how it could have come across as such.
Thread was about SHOT show, it evolved (as they do) to include some discussion of having it in Northeast. I opined that this was not likely as the NE is not considered gun friendly. As in perceived, generally regarded, thought of, deemed. I did not assert that this was true nor do I agree with it.
If I expressed that opinion poorly and was subsequently misunderstood I apologize.

Going back to kitchen knives at SHOT, I got to handle a prototype of a knife I have a major part in designing. No model name or production date yet but they did much better than I expected with it. On the other hand, it may be a little too esoteric for many here. Time will tell. I can tell you there is no Japanese influence involved what so ever in the knife.
I don't want to be accused of exploiting this site for my own commercial gain so I won't say too much about the knife. It is based on a pattern I found in Hanoi Vietnam. No model name yet and I wasn't told when they plan to go into production. These things sometimes take for ever it seems like. The proto was 1095 carbon steel but they are till debating what to use in the production model. What ever they go with, it will be far ahead of the Viet mode I'm sure.
