2018 Shot Show and 2018 GAOS Review and Newsletter

Posted by Marty on 2/18/2018
This has been an unusually busy travel spring for the HausofArms crew. First a trip to the 5 day 2018 Shot Show in Las Vegas coupled with a visit to MGM Barrels in Hurricane, UT.  We were home long enough to enjoy 4 days of the flu then we headed to The Great American Outdoor Show in PA.  Emily did an awesome job running things in our absence. Okay, let's get to the bullet points:

2018 SHOT SHOW REVIEW
The biggest Thompson Center news from the show occurred the very first morning, The 50th Anniversary Commemorative Contender was unveiled first thing. TC Brand manager, Danielle Sanville, was gracious enough to do a LIVE FaceBook with me to make that announcement. You can see the picture attached but here is a brief description anyway. Picture this, a blue G2 high gloss frame, with the gussets milled off to create that slab side look, the "cougar" head in gold on one side and the 50th Anniversary logo in gold on the other. The barrel was an octagon 10" gloss blue 22 LR with open sights and the furniture is walnut in a nice collector case. I'm told these will be numbered with an MSRP of $1380. Details will follow a little later in this article regarding how to order them.
