Anyone planning to attend the annual Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg next month for the chance to rub elbows with hunting celebrities like Lee and Tiffany Lakoski, or Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo, may need to rethink those plans.

As of Monday, the two celebrity hunting couples, along with major sponsor Cabela's and dozens of other vendors, have pulled their appearances from the largest consumer-related outdoors show in North America due to a new policy by the shows organizer.

Reed Exhibitions of the United Kingdom announced last week that because of the "current climate that may attract negative attention," it won't allow the display or sale of assault or assault-style weapons and large-capacity ammunition clips at the Feb. 2-10 show at the State Farm Show Arena.



There is list of more than a hundred companies/celebrities that have already pulled out here:

Glad for the boycott, but does anyone have any stock to sell for the next 3 months anyway?

Occasionally....all depends on what you are looking for.

I managed to snag a Sig P226, Sig P229, SA XDm 40, SA XDm 9, and a couple of FNs.

Long guns aren't any better (ARs are pretty much out), although I did manage to get 2 M&P15-22s (gone quick!).

What's the difference between EOS and SHOT anyway?

If you need 11 bullets to kill a deer, then you dont need to be in the woods anyway!

looks like the whole this has been canceled/postponed

"Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone, for now, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event. The show was scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, PA."

Good news. Seems like even hunting groups are starting to band together against an assault weapons ban.

From what I'm reading it's doing more to polarize the groups than ever before.

I work for One of the vendors that was going to be at this show. The info I got was that it was the mayor of Harrisburg that put the stipulations on the show.
