...from my visits to gun companies. It gives me a chance to talk to company execs before the craziness of the SHOT Show. Yes, advertising has a lot to do with it...TV is an advertising-driven medium, and those guys pay the freight for the shows...but it's also a chance to talk about what's going to be introduced at SHOT, what's in the works, etc. If I have the time, I head for the factory floor...gun factories are cool.
Meanwhile, America is fretting on Tattoo Barbie:
I think people are afraid the Tattoo Barbie will break up Biker Ken's marriage to Hollywood Barbie, or something like that. No wait...something about that sounds familiar...BTW, Alf the Wonder Beagle is particularly taken with the Barbie Dog disguised as a cactus...Alf think the cactus disguise would allow her to get close enough to an elk for a drive-by.
