So more great quotes from the SHOT Show.

"There should be a law in Wyoming that says you can't have more people living there than the deer herd."

"In that hunting zone a blind man with a .410 could shoot an elk."

"They cut him off last night?"
"Yeah, he tried to convince the bartender that's the way he always acts, but she didn't buy it."

"The only thing on the plate that was edible were the carrots, and they were still frozen."

"Boy you've gotten fat. I'm surprised there's enough fabric in the world to make a suit for you."

"That man sent me the worst bottle of gin I've ever had."
"Did you drink it?"

"Cuz his politics got in the way. He probably supports Hillary."
