Kickin’ It Off From ATL
Yo, my journey to CANCON 2023 started with my crew scooping me up from ATL Airport. We were all hyped up, heading down to Savannah, GA. The vibe was chill, like we were rolling into some high-end country club, not your typical range day setup.
VIP Style at the Gate
Check this – at the media check-in, I peeped that the VIPs were getting hooked up with two silencers right off the bat. Talk about setting the tone! It was clear from the jump that CANCON wasn’t playing around when it comes to value.
Silent but Deadly: That Range Life
We hitched a ride up the hill, and man, the silence hit different. Everything was hushed up with silencers, cutting down all that usual range racket. It’s wild how much of a difference it makes – you could almost forget you needed ear protection.
Throwback Feels with Modern Tech
Being there on the media ticket, I got to get hands-on with some firearms at the PTR Industries booth. They had these dope remakes of HK classics. I’m talking about their MP5 clone and the PTR A3S .308 rifle – pure nostalgia, but with that new tech feel. Shooting them was legit a blast.
The Scene: More Than Just Silencers
It wasn’t all about the silencers, though. The scene was diverse – from GOS, other silencer brands, to the more unexpected like T-shirt and trigger companies. It was like a snapshot of where the industry’s heading.
Night Moves and Networking
The VIPs got to do their thing at the night shoot, working with night vision and all. I didn’t jump in on that, but no regrets. I chilled at the range house, politicking and enjoying the catered spread. Sometimes it’s about the people you meet and the convos you have, you know?
Wrapping It Up
So, that was my CANCON 2023 run. It was more than just a trip to a gun event; it was about seeing where the culture’s at and where it’s going. I’d love to hear if y’all have had similar experiences or thoughts on suppressors and the like. Drop a comment and let’s get that dialogue going.
