Boge and I just got home from the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers Show in Reno. The NASGW is a group of firearms wholesalers, and at this show, manufacturers set up displays of new products that will be hitting the market soon. Hardly any press covers the NASGW Show. When I started covering this show a few years ago, I saw no other media there, but this past week, I saw Dick Metcalf from Intermedia, but no other press at all. The NASGW Show gives a couple of months advance on many items that will be introduced at SHOT in January, so it is an excellent show to cover. Why it is mostly ignored by the firearms press, I do not know.
Anyway, here we have pictures and some good video from the show, of several interesting firearms being introduced, or new variations of existing firearms now on the market. We were also shown some exciting new guns that will be introduced over the course of the next few months, which for now will remain a secret. We were carried into the back of several of the manufacturer’s booths and shown some new guns that are not ready for introduction at this time, but will be hitting the market soon. Looks like I only thought that I own enough guns already! I now know that there are still a few left to buy, and I eagerly and impatiently await the introduction of several. For now, the ones shown here will be available very soon, if not already on the market. Look for detailed reviews of some of these soon on Gunblast.com.
