A large part of the SHOT show deals with firearms, ammunition, and shooting sports. However, most every company with gear designed to increase your odds of survival is there too. Anything from survival food to prepper gear to packs, boots, knives, and firestarters is there. We scoured the show’s seven convention rooms on five floors and its 12 miles of aisles to find the best bug out gear on the market today.


Every year, tens of thousands of show goers descend on the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. They are there for the 41st anniversary of the SHOT Show. Put on by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), SHOT Show 2019 is an American annual trade show. It focuses on the shooting, hunting, and firearms industry. It is the largest of its kind in the world, bringing people in the outdoor industry together from all over the world.
