Had a great time at TREXPO today. It took right at 2 hours to get up there, and a little over three to get home.
Col. Grossman gave a fantastic lecture, and I took a bunch of notes so I can share some highlights with you this weekend. Reading between the lines, I think he is one of us.
Sig, S&W, Colt and Glock were there, along with a few manufacturers of the new style sniper rifles with modular stocks, barrels and other components.
Gerber, Spyderco and SOG knives were there. I spoke a bit with the SOG VP of sales, and he gave me a Spirit to review for you. It's a wicked looking knife, with a really cool feature to turn it into a spear. I'll work with it this weekend and do a written and video review for you.
I picked up some samples of some small items and will do a Facebook fan contest this weekend as well.
A big thanks goes out to the guys from OM Tactical, who took me to lunch. If you are in the market for some very high speed body armor or battle-ready medical kits, check them out.
TREXPO was quite a bit smaller than I remember it from back in the 90's, but still a very worthwhile show for cops, military and security contractors.
Check back Saturday and Sunday for my complete reports and reviews.
