Opening its doors last Friday, the IWA & OutdoorClassics trade show will finish with a bang today in Nuremberg, Germany. This is the second largest gun, hunting and outdoor sports trade show in the world and constituting the true European counterpart to America’s SHOT Show. Last year there were some 1,141 exhibitors representing the arms industries (and cultures) from 55 nations. With unveilings abounding and services rendered, around 32,214 visitors from more than 102 countries attended the show last year and this year looks to like it may beat that number. And with as good as 60% of these visitors originating from countries other than Germany, the IWA & OutdoorClassics could be considered the largest multinational industry gathering of shooters and gun manufacturers.
Unfortunately Guns.com has warrants and can’t leave the country. No, we’re kidding. We’re just too busy to go to Germany for a weekend but you can read more about the IWA show straight from die Pferde’s (that means horse’s) mouth here. The IWA is keeping journals in PDF format, cataloguing new products at the show this year. We will also be keeping you posted on some cool products you’ll otherwise never see stateside. Take a look at their video below:
