 HOGUE INC. INVITES BLADE SHOW 2015 ATTENDEES TO BOOTH #57/58 ON JUNE 5-7 IN ATLANTA, GA

Henderson, Nev. – Hogue Inc., America’s premier manufacturer of firearm grips, rifle stocks, AR components, knives, holsters and gear is Atlanta-bound in two weeks for the company’s sixth consecutive appearance at the annual Blade Show, this time with a new Tomahawk, a new line of automatic knives and a healthy selection of limited edition knives in tow. “Blade Show is a huge opportunity for us to connect with the knife community,” explained Hogue Managing Partner Jim Bruhns. “We launched Hogue knives at Blade Show 2010 and we’re back this year with an expanded product line, a new Tomahawk and some exciting limited edition fixed and folding blade models.”

While Hogue is well known for its popular line of handgun grips and rifle stocks, the last few years have seen the company’s product line expand into high quality production fixed and folding blade knives. The company’s knives were a hit at Blade Show 2013, in particular Hogue’s EX-04 Tactical Folding Knife – the upswept blade model took the show’s “American-made Knife of the Year” honors that year. “Hogue Knives are some of the highest quality production knives on the market right now,” said Bruhns. “The fit and finish of a Hogue Knife rivals many custom designs. Plus, our knife designer Allen Elishewitz is at the top of his game.”

“I have worked with many manufacturers over the years,” said Elishewitz, “but Hogue’s ability to capture my vision – and produce knives that consistently reflect that vision – is unmatched.”

Show attendees are invited to obtain a free scratch card daily where they are guaranteed Hogue prizes including tomahawks, knives and other exciting Hogue items.

Additionally, there will be second chance drawings throughout each day of the show for those who participated in the promotion. Stop by booth 57-58 and share in the excitement.

Hogue products are manufactured in family-owned and operated facilities under the direct supervision of the Hogue family. Hogue, Inc. supports local dealers and encourages customers to purchase Hogue products locally.

SMYRNA, Ga – (Mar. 20, 2015) – Today GLOCK, Inc. announced the release of the new GLOCK single stack slimline 9mm pistol, the GLOCK 43. The G43 is the most highly desired and anticipated pistol release in GLOCKs history. Designed to be the answer to everyday concealed carry needs, the G43 is ultra-concealable, accurate, and comfortable for all shooters, regardless of hand size.

“The G43 is the most exciting product release to date because it addresses a variety of issues that many shooters face with pistols in the concealed carry category,” stated GLOCK, Inc., VP Josh Dorsey. “It will be the pistol of choice for law enforcement and civilians. The G43 sets a new standard for concealed carry pistols.”

A true slimline pistol, the frame width of the G43 is just over one inch and the slide width measures only 0.87 inch. The overall length is 6.26 inches. For those who have smaller hands, the trigger distance is only 2.6 inches, making it ideal for functionality.

The single stack magazine holds 6 rounds and is the perfect concealed carry pistol for both duty and civilian use. The G43 is engineered to the same superior standards as all GLOCK pistols and the reliability instills confidence for all lifestyles.

The G43 will debut at the NRA Annual Meeting, April 10-12, 2015, in Nashville, Tenn., at the GLOCK booth (#633). Shipments of the product will begin directly following the convention.
