ShotShow 2009

As some may know, some may not know, ShotShow 2009 is happening this weekend. Although it officially kicked off yesterday, all the main events happen Friday through Sunday. As I write this, I am sitting in the Pittsburgh airport waiting to board my flight to Orlando Florida, where ShotShow 2009 is.

A little background on Shotshow, it is an industry only trade show where all the new firearms of the year are unveiled, Along with all the rather nifty accessories for said Firearms. Everyone from Magpul, to Surefire, To FN and H&K are at ShotShow. Recently, Airsoft has become part of ShotShow. AO Admin, Airsofter, and owner of Zshot, Wallace Lau is who I am in attendance with for ShotShow.

I will be doing a bit of 'live reporting', since I am not a member of the press, I cannot take pictures of all the new things. However, if there is anything you want me to check out, feel free to ask. I will get first hand looks at the FN SCAR, Magpul/Bushmaster MASADA, as well as all the nifty things that you see on TV and future weapons.

With that, I bid all a good day, because my flight is boarding!

Cheers,
Fox

Hey, stop by Magpul and grab me some 30rnd PMAGS for my AR-15, they are very scarce right now, lol...

BTW, the owners of CoolStuff Airsoft (Mike and Lisa) in Pittsburgh are at the show too, if you see them, say "hello".

The other two forums I frequent have all been about SHOT this year... I am sorry I can't go. However, I did manage to purchase a SWR Spectre suppressor from a SHOT attendee. Just have to start the paperwork

Dark Threads, one of the members/sponsors of Mil-Pro is at the shot show as well. Looks like a good time.

So far..

Met the guys from Eagle, Magpul, FN, MSA, Spec ops and the list goes on. There is a ton to see here.

As for Pmags, I have bought 6 so far, 4 black with windows, 1 tan, 1 sage. They're 18 for ones with out windows and 20 for the ones with windows.

A heads up on Pmags though, in the next 3 months they will be having alot more presses go online for them. So the number of PMags will be increasing greatly, and there should be no more shortages.

At that, expect Pmags for AEG's and PTW's shortly, as in the next couple of months.

Airsoft wise, I've met the guys from Red Wolf and Echo 1 which was pretty cool.

Unfortunately nothing terribly cool. Their airsoft division is having a lot of new products coming out. Most of the real-steel cool stuff was more development on grips and stocks. And that translates to new stuff for the Airsoft division too.

I also decided I'm buying a real SCAR in about 2 months. Talked to a dealer who can get me one.

I saw pictures of the Tavor, which is pretty neat. Other than that, from the pics it seems nothing insanely awesome is coming out for airsoft, in my opinion.

Any clue on the price of the SCAR?

The Civilian SCAR-L's will be priced around mid to upper 2000's, so some where between 2500 and 2800 retail once supply catches up with demand.

I'll stop by Glock and see. As for CA, they just have what they have, they really won't give any info.

I've met a number that can get them.

Apparently it's not an "if" it is just a when. Speaking to the FN rep himself, dealers are getting allotments of 3, priority being the size of the dealer. The one I talked to in Ohio is getting his first allotment in 2-3 months, which is perfect for me. He said he should be getting his second one in 4-5 months. All of this, I was also warned by the FN rep, of course "Depends on military deliveries".
