IWC at SHOT Show: Las Vegas, January 2017
IWC® for the second year running have supported the Simunition and FITLIGHT Trainer live demonstration in the Palazzo Hotel security suite from 17-20th January 2017.
The 39th Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show, owned and operated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), signalled a positive year ahead for the firearms industry. Strong attendance, upbeat buyers and sellers, and a series of packed special events that collectively made up “SHOT Week” resulted in one of the top-rated SHOT Shows.
The show spanned January 17-20 at the Sands Expo. Industry professionals packed the aisles from the opening bell, and attendance totalled nearly 65,000, surpassing last year’s turnout to make it the second most attended SHOT Show ever.SHOT Show is the biggest arms and ammunition show in the US, probably the world!
“SHOT Show is a cornerstone to development in the visibility of the Inflatable Wall product in the USA.” Scott Williams – Survitec Group.
“Our presence in the USA has grown significantly in the last year – from only a select few people introduced to the product now we’re demonstrating it live on the strip! We are really excited to be showing our latest developments to the US market.”
The week saw over 350 visitors head to either the 14 wall situation at the Palazzo Security Suite or to the miniature 6 wall configuration at the 5.11 Tactical event and managed to get to grips with both FX Simunition and the FitLight Tactical Training system.
The shooters were drawn from all walks of life from SWAT professionals, serving military personnel along with the occasional private individual. Over 2500 rounds of FX Simunition were fired into the walls and they took all the strikes with ease. So impressed with the Inflatable Wall Capability two Departments have escalated their enquiry to funding stages.
