You SUCK! I'm organizing a PROTEST, MANG!

Great report. I doubt the HK's will be available to civilians but I'd settle for that stock off the 417.

We can only wish the Border Patrol would have/use some of that hardware to secure our borders.

Looks like fun.

Border patrol and enforcement is becoming more and more prominent in the LE community.

Yeah, I think I could use one of those M2 .50 equipped trucks up here.

Great post 48th!

While I have yet to get any trigger-time on the Hk models, they look to me to be the pinnacle of AR15/M16 design.

and how f-ing awesome is that Hk417?.......... Just- Wow!!

You guys were able to live one of my gun-life's ambitions and for that ......I salute you!!

Mother of god, that thing must have a crazy muzzle blast.

FN F2000! Wooo! Lucky. It looks bulky but I cant stand it...I gotta have one.

Was that the elusive Nightforce 1-4 on the HK417 or was it a 2-10?

Looks like the 1-4 to me...the tube past the turrents looks too short to be the 2.5-10.

Great post; thanks for the pics.

Is this "Expo" for showing off the latest tools, or would you call it a direct opportunity to nail down PO's from these organizations?

I know you mentioned getting some business from Army unit, and others, so I guess the question is "was this the primary mission? (isn't it always? )

TIA.....and congratulations to those involved. It looks as though L-W products are getting some traction.
