2012 SOFIC in Tampa

I’m headed to the 2012 SOFIC in Tampa this morning.  SOFIC is the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, which is a meeting of commanders and operators inside the special forces community along with allied partners from the defense industry.

Think of it as a very specialized SHOT Show.

I’m headed to the conference this morning, and I hope to bring you some information on the small arms being shown.  For obvious reasons, operational security is important, so I will not be able to get nearly as many photos as I might like.

Also, vendors are not showing the civilian versions of their gear.  So, if you want to know about a California-compliant anything, forget about it.  However, if your interest is more to the FN heavy machine guns…well, I might be able to help.
