That's it, just IR?
 
I figured there would be more input than just IR.

Affordable IR

Desert Tech bullpup (.308 with caliber conversions)

Vortex Razor scopes (too heavy for me but will be a hit)

DPMS new pattern .308 ARs. This has a chance of being very benificial to the heavy AR market as it could potentially make the weight difference between .223/5.56 framed guns much closer to the .308/7.62 based guns. It could potentially make a standard everyone will like and will likely have a VERY light .308. (As in a few oz of a 16" 5.56)

Crye shotgun looks cool

Lancer .308 mags

.308 AR parts seem to be the trend. But nothing super ground breaking.

I saw several new precision rifle chassis introduced, those will be big after shot I believe.

Those new Meopta R2 scopes look interesting. More eye relief, hydro coatings, new illumination, not to heavy, 1.7-10x42 and 2-12x50 models, low light color weighted (guess that's what they would call it anyway) hummm

Meopta riflescopes are already designed to provide low-light dominance to the North American hunter, but Meopta’s new MeoLux lens coating clearly separates Meopta from the herd by providing industry-leading light transmission through the entire visible spectrum. The advanced MeoLux technology, premium Schott glass lenses and expert design enable 99.8% light transmission per glass surface resulting in 95% transmission through the entire scope. This allows hunters to see more clearly in the lowest light of morning and into the last light of evening. As with all Meopta optics, the new MeoStar delivers a crystal clear, bright image with exceptional color reproduction. Simply put, seeing better helps you hunt longer and make lethal shots safely in lower light.

Meopta engineers have also created a brand-new illumination system for the R2 series which is visible even in the brightest of daylight. This new RD8 illumination system has eight levels of reticle intensity so the brightness level of the red dot can be adjusted to accommodate the ever-changing light and weather conditions in the field – from the brightest sunshine and snow to the dimmest light.

Improved windage and elevation turrets are quickly resettable to zero and easy to grip, even with gloves on. The hydrophobic MeoDrop lens coatings ensure the highest level of visual clarity, easily repelling rain, snow, skin oils and dirt. Focal adjustment is also quick and easy thanks to Meopta’s MeoQuick fast-focus eyepiece, and the external lens surfaces are protected from scratches and abrasion by the robust MeoShield coating.

Like all Meopta riflescopes, the MeoStar R2 riflescope is machined from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and built to withstand extreme conditions. The scope features an anodized exterior for scratch resistance and is waterproof, shockproof and fogproof for maximum performance and durability.

While I was at DSC, the COO of Meopta, Reinhard Seipp, told me the R2 would rival any scope made in the world, period.  I am very, very impressed with him, and Meopta.  They are, and will continue to be a force to be reckoned with IMO.  The S2 spotter is amazing.

A lot of "buzz" over Glock's single stack 380 pistol.

As for Glocks new .380, it completely misses the mark for me. Same dimensions as a M&P shield, but not available in 9mm nor does it hold more bullets. Why would I want it?? Noveltyand Glock fans (which are numerous) are the only things that will drive its succesz

The Miller MPA 300 Guardian looked kind of interesting. Its a semi auto 300 win mag. It takes Krieger, Bartlein and Mike Rock barrels. The magazine is made so that the rounds can be loaded long. I dont know how many people will have a use for this but its kind of neat.

I agree about the above statement on the Glock 42. Its just not a very exciting handgun in my opinion. I dont know what all the buzz is about. Glocks are already boring handguns as it is; why would I want a 380? Semi auto handguns dont have much power and I wouldnt feel comfortable carrying something smaller than a 9mm.

I'm sure I could find a use for it... The harder part is finding the coin for it... Nice to see they made the magazine long enough to correctly seat bullets in a 300WM. JMO but I've always thought the biggest drawback to the 300WM is that it required bullets to be seated too deep to fit the standard length action/magazine.

1).goodlooking girls holding guns
2).beautiful women standing by guns
3).scantily clad women pointing at guns
you get the idea

the 380 qualifies as a gun?

I love boring handguns/reloads. last thing I want is a surprise just when I need it.

I don't like surprises either; I had a primer blow out on me a couple of weeks ago.

I was just pointing out that I prefer the G 42s competition. I don't have a bunch of money, so buying a handgun that I probably wont carry has to be really special. But maybe the G 42 is perfect for some people, just not for me.

I liked these new rifles from Accuracy International. I believe these are the AX MK2 in different calibers. What interested me about these is how easy it is to switch barrels. All you need is an Allen key that is stored in the butt somewhere. You loosen 1 screw where the barrel threads are and then you can twist the barrel off by hand and install a new one. These look great if you've got almost $7000 burning a hole in your pocket.
