    Unfortunately, I won't be attending the Shot Shot, but I'd like to put in a request.

    We had a Kestrel (weather meters) consultant stop in a while back and solicit for product improvement suggestions.

    Suggestions were provided and the feedback we received was to watch at Shot Show.

    To whoever is attending, could you please take a look at the Kestrel booth and pass us an update? I would appreciate it very much.

    We will. I'm hoping they're using the G7 projectile model in their meters so one device can serve as weather meter and ballistic computer. I'm also hoping it's easy (and fast) to use.

    I kind of doubt it though.

    I am looking forward to info about Federal/ATK's 6.8 SPC offerings for the year.

    Less optimistically, Tula said on their site that they were releasing 6.8 in 2013 too, but the lack of information makes me doubt it. They have yet to confirm or deny.

    I would love for someone to talk to Marlin to see what progress, if any, has been made in their lever action issues since hey changed manufacturing sites.

    Can you clue me in a bit more? What kinds of problems were they having?

    Front sight and tapped reciever screws drilled off center. Poor fit and finish. Not cycling ammo properly. Bad marring of screws. A significant number of them requiring them to go back to the factory for work and often comming back no better. Last year at some point they basically stopped manufacturing most models in order to try and fix problems.

    Somebody tell taurus to put the 410 revolvers in their own category and bring back the compact frame 45s.

    RCBS is announcing a new reloading press. How about a report. All we're seeing is a picture and a lot of armchair guessers!:) This is not a conventional press, so we're wondering what group of reloaders RCBS is targeting.

    Any info on Tavor.

    Thought they were supposed to show up last year on the market and they never materialized and have not heard anything since.

    I hope you find something that's just more AR/1911 variants. I love both but they're not much to get excited about, not like something fresh.

    Think you could stop by Magpul's booth and give some first impressions of the MOE-AK grip and MOE fixed stock? Thanks!
