2014 New Product Showcase
Guns, Gear And More To Strengthen Sales.
SHOT Show represents the pinnacle of new product announcements, presenting dealers with an abundance of options to add to their inventory for the rest of the year. As the news of these products reaches consumers, they’ll wait anxiously to get their hands on them. In the following pages, Shooting Industry identifies a collection of must-have new products — from handguns, knives and lasers to long guns, ammunition and holsters — your customers will want to add to their cache.
With this showcase, Shooting Industry continues to offer business-building tips so you can enjoy a successful 2014 Business Year. Your customers will likely see many of these products throughout the year in our consumer publications: American Handgunner, GUNS Magazine and FMG’s Special Editions. If they see a product they want, they can come to your store to see it firsthand and handle it — giving you the opportunity to then sell it to them. A satisfied customer and a healthy bottom line; it’s a win-win.
