My room window can see the entrance of Sands Expo, but walk to the SHOT show wasn't as straight as you'd imagine, it's about a mile going through and around the hotel and LV Blvd.

Walkin Venetian, looks like it'll be the year of the Rats this year.

G45 is G17 frame with G19 upper:

G48 is the single stack G45 with slimmer slide:

I spoke to them about making a double stack gun with slimmer slide, they said it won't fit.
I suggest them to use the G48 frame but with a flared grip to accommodate the G17 mag because the thickness of the slide is what you'll feel inside the waistband.
They started to scratch heads. I Told them to check how double stack 1911s were made, ahh......

S & W Shield 2.0 EZ is a hammer firing gun with much lighter recoil spring for easy slide pull, but in order to cock the hammer, the slide needs to fully pull back unlike the striker firing Shield. But I think the trade off is worth the effort for female shooters.

Thank you so much for sharing the pictures. The Cemetery gun is what really stuck out to me as it is very odd.
The cemetery gun went away when refrigerators came into use. That was always the unusual correlation to me. The demand for fresh corpses dropped off.

Thanks for sharing. I always wanted to go but could never find the time.

I think that there is more interest in posting pictures of your friend than the guns!
