    Well some of the rumored and new release weapons are starting to make social media as build up to the event on the 23rd. I figured we could keep things condensed here for reference or those who might attend this year to share their pictures.

    Sig's new offering in the small pistol market. Size of Glock 43 with 10+1 capacity and optional 12rd mag from the factory.
    "... measuring 1-inch wide, 5.8-inches long, and 4.3-inches tall with a barrel length of 3.1-inches. It weighs just 17.8 ounces with an empty magazine."

    Unfortunately, I'm not able to attend this year so no daily updates from Trek Tech Black.

    I don't remember if it was Franklin Armory, but the guys who make the sar were also showing a pistol version. Has a grip like the shockwave.
    Also forgot about the new Mossberg 590 magazine loading shotgun. Up to 20 round magazines
    Iver Johnson was showing a 1911 carbine. A pistol with a long barrel and stock. Backstrap cut for the stock.
    Streamlight has a compact pistol light with laser. Finally Nitecore was teasing with a pistol light. Not much info available on it
    As i was mostly looking at airguns, flashlights and trama kits, i have not been looking at too many firearms. Mostly what i noticed in passing or stood out
