    Ive been told a lot of the vendors will not be at the grand for the aim shoot the week before the grand. Does anyone know if the main gun shops or the bigger vendors will be open? Thanks, Randy

    Who told you they wouldn't be there? Most of the vendors I have talked with in the past say some of their best business comes from the kids shoots.

    Well thats what I would think also, folks will usually spend more on their kids than themselves. Thats one of the highlights for my son, buying t-shirts and pins. Also I'm planning on buying him another gun and wanted him to shoot several while we're there. Thanks, Randy

    grntitan,

    If you remeber last year at the AIM Nationals, a lot of the vendors were just setting up and stores weren't open and they shut off demo'ing guns early .

    Bob,

    I don't recall that but maybe I'm confusing the SCTP Championship with the AIM. I'm one who feels the AIM should be part of the actual Grand though.

    I agree with you grntitan.
    When we first started with AIM, the same year it was started, 2008 if memory serves,the nationals were on Saturday and Sunday between the prelims and Grand week and then the 14 year-old won the $100,000 a couple of years ago.The very next year we were moved to the weekend before the prelims.

    Last year they had the "Shooting Carnival" on Saturday and Sunday and a lot of the vendors were just getting set up or were not even open yet. They shut down the demoing of guns at like 1:00 on Tuesday.
