    For me it will be 3-4 new guns...a 9mm probably a Browning Highpower, a Winchester 30-30 with 26" octagonal barrel, a minty 20 ga Winchester Model 12, a Cooper .204. Don't really care what the trends are.

    Kimber Solo, Springfield XDs, the Sig 938 etc.....

    I've personally fondled / seen for sale a couple of XDs's and 938's, but I still haven't seen a Solo (and haven't they been out for longer?)...

    maybe ruger will open a couple of new factories so we dont have to wait on a list for a year to get a 1911. they have a lot of different guns shown on their website, on the dealer's shelves...not so much.

    I tend to ignore SHOT show, honestly. Like a previous poster said, how long will it be until WE THE PEOPLE get to see the stuff in our stores? I want a Kimber Solo, at least to try out. I have never seeen one, and at a 6-9 month waiting time and a nearly $800 pricetag I think they can keep it. The thing has been out how long? Two years maybe?

    I don't really care about more 1911 style pistols, as I already have three and I could buy them all again for less than some of the new ones. I'm tired of hearing about the new wonder "blackout" round, and I don't care for Glocks.

    Yes, the future is bleak indeed. Call me your typical female, but I like my guns to look attractive as well as provide me compact power. Wood and steel please, so I can do all my custom inlays, scrimshaw, grip-swapping, etc...

    Plastic may be functional and the gun may work fine, but it has no soul.

    My kind of girl. :)

    On the serious side I lusted after a solo until I keep hearing things like 200 rd break and LGS says 6 months wait.

    I am hoping for ruger to jump into the 300 blackout bolt action game. Paying $800.00 for a Remington Micro 7 in 300 blackout is crazy!!

    I'm still waiting for a Glock AR...or just something beyond a pistol. Perhaps when Gaston passes on.

    I expect to see Obama attempting to finally pass serious anti gun laws.
    SS & Medicare people will be very unhappy------------:(

    AAC and GemTech are working on a joint venture to develop a silencer for PSE's Dominator line.

    Mossberg, Ed Brown, Winchester, and Kimber will all introduce their own line of QD suppressors.

    You can look forward to me walking around drooling on everything. That's pretty cool right?

    As of a few days ago, I've also seen / fondled the Solo. The trigger is nowhere near as nice as I was hoping - it's smooth, but a long initial stroke and the reset is no shorter - very similar to a Kahr trigger.

    What we can look forward to in 2013.

    Glock will produce a proprietary pistol carbine on the AR platform, rumored to be exclusively chambered in 45GAP. :D

    Glock buys Kel Tec and forms Glock Tec; Walmart purchases Glock Tec and stocks the firearms in the Tupperware aisle. Amazon, in a Cold War-esque manuever purchases Subway and removes all Subways from Walmart. Apple and Google sign a non-aggression pact and form an alliance with Southwest in response to the arms stockpiling of Walmart. Ikea decidedly remains neutral and by November 2013 we will have WWIII...

    The solo has been out, I handled one back in the early spring. It was grossly marked up, never the less they are out there.

    I'm looking forward to checking out the Arsenal Strike One pistol.

    I'm hoping the Faxon ARAK upper will be there too.

    I'm also going to check US Palm and Tangodown to see WTH happened with SOD Gear from Italy, they were showcasing their products for US distribution last year, but nothing has been even whispered about it since.

    When I first heard about the Solo and looked at the dealer sample I put money down and and was on the list to get one from my LGS. After waiting 6 months I said forget it and bought another gun instead. After about a year they finally showed up and were gone in no time. Frankly I'm glad I didn't get one. They are over priced pocket guns and I would rather spend my money on guns like the Sig P220, X6 or a S&W model 27 or a model 57. I could use another S&W model 610 though. For some reason the 10MM revolver appeals to me.

    I would like to see Remington make a big public apology for the marlin fiasco and offer some sort of rebate to those who bought them and sent them elsewhere to get fixed.

    I expect Ruger to have a 10-22 takedown with a wood stock.

    I expect Ruger to finally sell their international version of the scout in the USA.

    My dream would be for mossberg to take their tried and true 500 pump and make a lever action version of it. I dont want a cowboy action lever shotgun but I do want a real honest to goodness lever action shotgun from a tried and true platform and I'd happily buy it.

    How about the Ruger single shot in 22 LR.

    Well, Remington just purchased Tapco, so I think any kind of apology regarding the quality of products is wishful thinking. :D

    (Note: If the smiley isn't hint enough, I say this mostly in jest. Acquiring a firearms accessories company would make perfect sense for a company in Remington's position, and the people who handle these kinds of mergers and acquisitions tend to be quite far removed from the gun-buying public and their opinions.)
