Editor’s note: We thought you might enjoy this narrative from one company’s SHOT Show journey…
People from Arkansas and Oklahoma say that if you don’t like the weather, just wait a little bit and it will change. That couldn’t be more true during the winter months.
Umarex USA, is located in the border town of Fort Smith, Arkansas. Oklahoma is to the West, the Arkansas River confines our city to the North. Beyond the river lies Interstate 40, which runs East and West. Umarex USA, home to Axeon Optics, Umarex Airguns, and Exude lights by Optical Dynamics, is on the East side of town, opposite of Oklahoma. The location is great because it’s just a short ride to Old Fort Gun Club, which is handy when we want to shoot our Umarex Airguns and Axeon Optics outdoors at 100 or 300 yards, which are longer distances than our indoor range will allow.
Before I go on, keep in mind that we’ve already shipped our awesome new products to Las Vegas for SHOT Show. The Umarex Synergis, Ruger® 10/22® Air Rifle and all of our Axeon Optics, new EXUDE lights, and of course a fantastic looking Umarex Hammer are already there. You just have to see and hold the Hammer to feel how nice it is. It might sound cliche, but it’s definitely going to be worth the wait. All that was left is to get to Vegas myself.
