I've been watching the list of vendors and just checked it this morning and I didn't see that FOXPRO had pulled out yet. I know that Abner Druckenmiller guy who is their marketing manager and tv host for Foxpro Furtakers show was supposed to be a guest speaker giving seminars and stuff at the show. Considering that they show people hunting with AR's all the time on their show I figured they would be upset about the ban on modern sporting rifles.

They should. Modern sporting rifles are the bread and butter of many predator hunters across this country.

Sent them a email (Foxpro)asking them this very question , but have not yet recieved there answer. i certainly hope they decide to stand with those that support the 2nd amendment, would be very dissapointed if they dont.

2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show

The recent news and decision by Reed Exhibitions and the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show to refrain from the sales of modern firearms and accessories is disheartening and regrettable to hear. We are very disappointed in their decision and even though we would wish them to repeal their decision we feel that much damage has been done. The ramifications of their decision impacts many attendees and hundreds of exhibitors that have supported this event for many years.

The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show has always been one of our favorite shows to interact with our loyal customers and fans. Due to recent events FOXPRO will not be attending the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor trade show. We encourage all of our customers who intended to visit with us to place an order to visit any of our fine retailers. For those who had wished to see us at the show please visit our website for other venues that we will be participating in.

We would like to thank all of our customers, fans and friends that have supported us at this show in the past and wish you all a very blessed 2013. For more information on our products please visit www.gofoxpro.com, or contact us by phone at 717-248-2507.



Sincerely,

FOXPRO Inc.
