    Their booth was staffed well, plenty of offerings to show and play with. Why not announce at a different time and be a major headline instead of getting lost in all the other hoopla at Shot.

    If you keep up with things happening over time and announcements you can pretty much figure out what at least some of the products coming are. One person had it right on here as far as all the companies were waiting for the results of the election before dumping out millions into product development or plant development..LOL

    It appears more firearms companies are doing the same thing, so don't know what the big deal is. Seems more companies are now waiting to debut a product when it is actually ready, and only put out a couple teasers a couple months/weeks prior to release, instead of debuting a product at SHOT and then listening to people bitch when it isn't released quickly enough for them or doesn't get put into production after all.

    Plus, if you are one of the big boys, you don't need SHOT show to debut anything. If you are an esstablished industry name, people will sit up and take notice if you debut a product on Twitter at 2 in the morning on a Tuesday. The big names don't need SHOT, SHOT needs them, especially with the amount of firearms pages online that will break the news just as easily to wider audiences.

    I guarantee that the next big HK announcement will make us tent our trousers and have several threads on this forum and others. Haters and fanboys will be talking about it, and it won't be because it debuted at SHOT, it will be because it is HK.

    This IS great news! Thanks for sharing!

    One BIG announcement at SHOT was in the booth meeting room but not shown to the public outside.
    I am somewhat surprised someone has not yet "leaked" an copy of the color brochure.
    See how long that takes.

    So, if "some privileged people" know stuff because they got brochures why aren't they telling us? Was their a confidentiality agreement of sorts?

    Well I wasn't in the shot show booth meeting room so I can't divulge any information, a free beer to the first person who posts a picture of the colorful brochure. Or describes it in great detail! Maybe we need to get the Russians involved here?

    I agree why go with the cloak and dagger routine?
