Industry Shake Ups

Change is both constant and inevitable. Sometimes change comes slowly, while at other times, it can come crashing down like a wave.

Recently, the firearms and associated industries have seen a wave of changes from Colt to SureFire. While some of these may be necessary and have long term benefits, in the short term, there is likely to be some pain. Here’s a taste of what’s going on in the industry.

Davidsons Beretta Neos purple

Here is some of today’s gun news…

Purple Neos

Davidson’s announced they are now shipping an exclusive purple and black Beretta U22 Neos pistol.  The new guns use purple inserts in the grip and an anodized purple finish on the gun’s top rail.

I understand that purple is not for everyone, but expanding the firearms color palette is a great way to give people a more personalized choice in arms.  Sure, Henry Ford sold a lot of black Model T cars, but today you can get a Mustang in eight colors other than black from the factory.  Consumers like options, and not every gun owner wants black and/or stainless.
