South Dakota's role in the firearms industry will be stressed next month when eight communities and an energy company join the Governor's Office of Economic Development at a high-profile trade show in Las Vegas.

The Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show will run January 20-23, 2015.

Those represented will be Aberdeen, Britton/Glacial Lakes Area Development, Huron, Madison, Pierre, Sturgis. Vermillion and Yankton, along with Black Hills Power of Rapid City.

Governor Dennis Daugaard says the SHOT Show is a great way to showcase the benefits of doing business in South Dakota.
