Shooting Industry's 1989 Show Off award winners.


By promoting in unique fashion, or by creating a show environment that brought considerable attention to a product or service at the 1989 S.H.O.T. SHOW, the companies featured on the following pages demonstrated an outstanding ability to "show-off." As recognized and presented by a nearly impartial panel of judges from Shooting Industry magazine.

ABOUT THE WINNERS... 1. We're not sure if Wideview's best attraction was the trap shooting simulation or the girls that ran it. 2. Donna Edmondson, Playmate of the Year in '87, signs photos from Nikon's booth. 3. Sports Souths "Hottest Sales in the South" promo was "well done." 4.

Dottie Brus of E-A-R was pleased to hear their "freebies" were judged the best. 11. How could we not give Kombi's Miss Shooting Industry (Jaudon McGaha) an award. 12.
