Yeah, see if DPMS is making their large frame G2 in 260 Remington or 6.5 Creedmore.

New offerings from Trijicon and Nightforce. Maybe a review on the Swaro X5 even if it is out of my budget.

There are many many booths with pretty girls that would be a project in itself. Just ask Deck when he gets back he'll be able to verify that.

Go ask the guys at Zeiss.  Mike Jensen was the right person to help bring

about some of the positive changes with their sports optics. 

He left just a few weeks ago in December, I would like to know more about

why.  Put it out here, or you could PM me.

Ask Schmidt and Bender when exactly they're going to make the T96 Polar available for sale in the U.S.

Ask EOTech when the G55 is going to be ready for delivery to retailers.  It's been field tested, reviewed and written up during the past six or so months but nobody will say anything about availability.

Leupold appears to have released a lower priced variant of the VX-3 line of scopes called VX-3 I or L. They appear to be priced similarily to the VX-R line.  Some retailers are already selling them.  What are the differences in these VX-3 variants?

Did anyone check out the ATN X-sights?  Looks like they discontinued the 3-12 and 5-18 for 3-14 and 5-20???  Going to really anger me if that is so...

Yes Sir it's so!  I have asked Deck to check it out!  Their new X-sights have some cooler features than the ones we have.  We where the Beta testers for their X-sight II project it seems!  Allegedly, those of us with the X-sight will be able to get a software update. Furious

Not worried about features as much as fixes...

Very true! Stability of software would be nice. The lock ups are getting out of hand!

Dan, you might not want to call ATN CS! I try my best not to go off on folks, I had to break off the convo their CS ain't. LOL! Trying to give so customer feedback was a waist of time an air. Maybe I'll call tech support tomorrow.

I didn't see much that blew me away..

Leupold is scaling down the amount of models..
I spent about 5 minutes there..

Checked out the Swaro X5s, meh.. not much interest to us personally.

The Bushnell LRHS 4-18 will have illumunation this summer, and it seemed focus on the hunter.. it appeared to be barely visible on the lowest setting with my hand cupped over the front objective.  The center reticle is lit..  

They will be releasing MOA versions.

We REALLY like the LRHS 3-12x44 for a hunting rifle


Eotech is getting in the scope business, a 1-6, 2.5-10 and a higher mag version, later this summer..

Mark Cromwell with SB USA is at the mercy of Germany for when stuff actually arrives here, don't ask for when..  

Had long conversation with Steiner, they said there was an extremely small amount of the Tactical series that had some tracking issues and were almost impossible to replicate, in any case, they are redoing the turret, we should have a sample soon.

Not enough bolt action makers are offering threaded barrels still.
Spoke with both Nosler and Cooper about it.  We might work with Cooper on a lighweight "hog rifle", probably a 16" "as light as you can make it" threaded 308.

Ultra compact SBR ARs were popular.

Girls. well, it's Vegas
And the porn convention was going on, we got invited to a party with some seals and porn girls, thankfully my return trip had me headed to the airport before that event started.
