Am back from SHOT 2009! I want to spend the rest of this week on the blog trying to put stuff into perspective. Not a huge amount of innovation this year...it was another SHOT where the industry was standing pat. There's was surprising amount of optimism mixed with the fear, which is a good thing.
The transition to a tactical market is clearly complete...as one wag said, you couldn't swing a dead cat on any aisle without hitting an AR or accessory. The other big news was the ascendency of the once-lowly .380 cartridge.
More later today!
