We will have some new scopes from a new Company on display at NEAF. The company has been around for a while, but this will be their first representation in the US. Not only will we have the scopes at NEAF, but the company itself will have a booth. Come on by and see what is up.

Why not? Just makes things fun. I guess I didn't have to say anything, but it just seemed interesting.

Nope. I am sure Alan would appreciate you showing up one way or another. If it takes some sort of drawn-out announcement that I am sure will leave everyone deflated in the end. (The build up is always better then the real thing.)
