Hopefully NEW stuff and not just repeats of last year. Some new stuff from Colt would be good. Mostly all they've been showing for the last couple of years are their 1020 gas piston uppers (which I doubt will ever go into production unless some police department or the DoD dishes out big bucks for an "M5 carbine").

Predictions:
FNH comes out with more guns that look like lasers
Benelli makes a shotgun, and it appears in video games
40000 1911 clones.

I know the black folks will really want one now. And they thought gold plated was bling. Wait until the black community hears about diamond

The gangsta/thug types (not black folks per se, that's over-generalizing) mostly obsess over platinum. So if MR released a new Eagle with a Platinum finish, then that would have them excited.

I'm just saying, every time I go to a gun shop for guns, I always see a wannabe gang of blacks asking for the Desert Eagle and marvel at it like it's the manilest gun in the world.

Anyone who's been to gun stores or gun shows has seen people like that; in fact, when I was at the show yesterday, I saw a group of about 5-6 thug types. But I'm just saying that there's no need to treat them as though they represent "the black community" (whatever that is).
