Confessions of SHOT Show Virgin

Anteris Alliance Try & Buy 2020

It was like a reunion of good friends who had never met before. Well I

hadn’t met many of the members. Anteris Alliance is made up of many

companies are drawn together by a sense of patriotic vocation. The Try

and Buy is the chance for these entrepreneurs to showcase the vast array

of products and services to a wider audience. It’s also a great opportunity

to spend time with good people. The Try & Buy is held the Sunday before

SHOT Show at the Pro Gun Club in Boulder City, NV. And wow… What a

location! I suggest checking it out the next time you happen to be in the

greater Las Vegas area.

Deb Ferns and I arrived bright and early and immediately ran into Casey Betzold, the man behind Anteris Alliance. Soon George Ford and Eydin Hansen appeared with Kevin Bacon in tow. Operator Coffee was brewing, Carl’s Donuts were passed around, and the efficacious activity of the day was heating up. Jerry Betzold, Casey’s Dad, and I even got the photo we promised Jean!

Buck Knives had many beautiful examples of the craft laid out. If they sound familiar, the SNQ 2019 attendees received beautiful knives from them.
