1,600+ vendors. 35,000+ attendees. 630,000+ square feet. Las Vegas.
Some of the rumors floating around:
- Sig Sauer will lap-dancing their way into the world of HK with the launch of their first SMG, the Sig MPX. http://www.sigsauer.com/mpx/
Glock has been generating a lot of buzz after a post to "expect BIG news" on their Facebook. Since then, they have been slowly strip-teasing. At this point, many fans will be upset if their big announcement is anything less than a new firearm. Rumors abound, ranging from an AR variant, a single-stack 9mm/.40, to a range of polymer rifle accessories. They have revealed a "part 1 of 3 part reveal" on their Facebook, Glock ID, a Glock-only forum/social network with a tangible rewards system.
Remington will be showcasing their new 783, filling the budget gap between the excellent 700 and the disenchanting 700. Looks like it has a very Savage-Accutrigger-like trigger, which, in my mind, is a great move. http://www.remington.com/en/product-fam ... l-783.aspx
Other highlights include Winchester's new caliber, .17 WSM. We're talking 3,000 fps with a 20 grain bullet [compared with a mere 2,350 from a .17 HMR]. Bushcrafters worlwide should rejoice if we see handguns in this chambering…
Ruger will finally introduce the SR45, a commander-sized SR1911, as well as a .22 mag chambering of their popular LCR, and possibly a .380 LC9 [not sure I follow the logic on that one…].
Additional Beretta Nano models.
Maxpedition is set to reveal a new line of CCW-specific gearbags [excited about this one], original morale patches, and the official launch of their Knives and Tools line. Let's hope, for their sake, the new line of knives has a warmer reception than their new Ferox.
A bunch of new Buck Knives http://www.lawofficer.com/article/produ ... w-knives-2
and much, much more
I have my own list of things to check out while we're there, but, if you have any special requests, let me know. I would be happy to make specific inquiries to any vendor. Also, if you're going, hit us up! I hear Hooters has great hot wings…
