NSSF Announces 2021 SHOT Show Cancellation

Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the world, as well as the continuation of restrictions on large gatherings, the NSSF, the firearm industry trade association, makes the difficult announcement that the 2021 SHOT Show has been cancelled.

Absolute Machine Tools was excited to be heading back to Shot Show & Suppliers Showcase for 2021.  The NSSF will be planning the 2022 event this coming Spring, 2021.  So look for our new booth assignments in the coming months for both events.
