Equipped To Survive coverage of SHOT Show, with our focus on the latest Knives, Flashlights and interesting new Gear, has been one of our most popular efforts (see last year's report at: http://www.equipped.org/shot_show_2006.htm ), generates a lot of traffic for ETS and we often scoop everyone else with our timely coverage. This year SHOT Show is in Orlando and that is presenting problems. For the past three years we have been spoiled with it being in Las Vegas. For a variety of reasons, the out-of-pocket cost to cover SHOT Show in Vegas has been very low. The combination of the Orlando location and Sue's medical issues which have had a severe impact on us financially, make this year problematic.

Sue has done a good job on getting us great deals. We have our reservations and are gearing up to go, but now we need to raise the money to do it. The ETS kitty is virtually empty and what's there is already earmarked for other obligations. Our SHOT Show budget is $2,950 and if we don't raise the money, we don't go. There's no other way around it. We need your support and we need it NOW. Please pass this around the Net to others and to other forums. Hopefully all those who have enjoyed our SHOT Show Reviews in the past, for which there's never been a charge, will now step up and make a modest contribution to assist us to continue this tradition.

Help us continue our tradition of the best SHOT Show coverage anywhere. Click here to make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation via credit card or check: http://www.equipped.org/donateSHOTShow2007.htm

Howdy all,

Every years since I have been visiting ETS’s website I always looked forward to the annual SHOT Show reviews. I know that a number of you all have anticipated theses reviews, the posts leading into and following the show as evidence. I was honored to have been asked to assist Doug at SHOT show this year, reviewing flashlights for ETS’s 2007 SHOT Show review. I knew Doug put a lot of time and effort into ETS, but I didn’t understand how much time goes into prepping for SHOT Show… Until now that is.

Equipped to Survive is a non-profit Foundation, and as such relies on donations to keep providing the services that so many have found useful. Doug spends countless hours working on various projects for ETS, he has dedicated his life to providing others with accurate information on survival equipment, procedures and technologies.

Please help us out and make a donation, Equipped to Survive cannot survive without your help!

Thanks and Be Safe!
Alan

The cavalry has arrived! I am very pleased to announce that survival equipment retailer Red Flare has stepped up and agreed to sponsor ETS coverage of SHOT Show 2007, ensuring continuation of this tradition! We all win with this sponsorship and you win double with a 10% discount on all Red Flare purchases. Read the details on Red Flare's sponsorship of SHOT Show 2007 on ETS and your 10% discount.

For those who have already generously contributed to support our SHOT Show coverage, I would like to express my deep appreciation. It wasn't enough by itself, but combined with Red Flare's sponsorship, we'll be able to do an even better job and will now be able to leave the survival rations home, for which we are eternally grateful.

RedFlare sounds like a real quality organization. Time for me to order some stuff.

Doug - BTW, the link in your post entitled "Read the details on Red Flare's sponsorship of SHOT Show 2007 on ETS and your 10% discount." is bad. It comes up as "http://shot_show_2007.htm" (which obviously doesn't work) but it should be http://www.equipped.org/shot_show_2007.htm

I have bought stuff from red flare before he made his generous act. And you will find quality products at good prices delivered with great service. Thanks for your generous donation to ETS, redflare.
