Nice to see the huge change in S&W since they were bought again by an American owner. I didn't see a lot of other AR15 manufacturers on that no-show list: where is Remington/DPMS/Bushmaster? Do Colt, FN, Ruger and such normally have booths?
Not many optics companies on the list either, just Trijicon as far as I can see.
Let us never again make fun of our FUDD brothers
because a lot of non-tactical companies are on this no-show list in support of that segment of the industry. Lots of bow companies, clothing, RMEF, etc.
