SHOT Show 2022 Q&A: H&K's Your Huckleberry!

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.forgottenweapons.com

I decided to try a bit of an experiment for this month’s Q&A, and took questions from Forgotten Weapons Patreon and Utreon supporters to ask directly to exhibitors at SHOT Show 2022. It turned out quite a lot shorter than I was anticipating, but I think I got some good answers for you. Thanks to all the companies who showed up to SHOT this year, and to the folks willing to come on camera for me!

00:00 – Introduction
00:40 – H&K: Will you introduce a 10mm pistol?
01:48 – M+M I industries: Will you release your 18″ DMR rifle in the US instead of just in Canada?
02:17 – Aimpoint: Will you offer a reticle other than just a plain red dot?
03:43 – S&W: Will you reintroduce the J-frame in .327, maybe with moon clips for .30 Super Carry?
04:14 – S&W: To what extent is the CSX a development of the 2011?
05:07 – Remington: What is the path forward for Remington firearms production?
07:02 – Brownells: What would it take to bring back the complete Retro rifles?
08:17 – Kalashnikov USA: Will you produce Dragunovs?
10:05 – Walther: How about larger capacity micro-compact pistols?
11:21 – DesertTech: Are you developing a BLK LBL bipod for the HTI or SRS bolt action rifles?

    I’m not a patreon member but very much liked and appreciated you asking these questions in the names of the patreons that asked. Very cool, just needed maybe a couple questions per vender…maybe?

  2. Michael Hossle-Assle on September 23, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    That HK guy’s glasses drove me absolutely insane.

  3. Joey Allen on September 23, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    HK guy was a real gem. Wish you had more questions for him lol

  4. Parasitic on September 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I just want a good company to make a dot in blue or purple for us colorblind shooters

  5. pkt1213 on September 23, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Question for Remington Ammunition, "Can I get some of the .350 Rem Mag." (Imagine this in the Dave Chapel crackhead meme.)

  6. Nondyan on September 23, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    HK needs to re-release the PSG1.

  7. Mr Olsen on September 23, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    This is awesome!

  8. KenworthW900HG on September 23, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Anybody else got a major man-crush on the Aimpoint dude?

  9. Walter Burton on September 23, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    👍👍👍

  10. 0BAAC0 on September 23, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    What a great idea for a video. Loved this.

  11. Bo Bauer on September 23, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Yes, i want an hk vp10…

  12. Seth F on September 23, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Tbh I feel bad for alot of reps in companies, many here did good! But the having the flip back and forth to corporate speak with the company to trying to seem down to earth is a hard line to walk props to anyone who chooses this line of work.

  13. Joseph Wilding on September 23, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    As a Canadian (who is currently working on getting his PAL/RPAL) I’ve heard nothing good about the m10x, obviously I have no personal experience but that seems to be the majority opinion here

  14. HillBilly4Christ on September 23, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Hint: don’t buy Remington ammo. They have gone full woke.

  15. Zadott Erazo on September 23, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Aim point throwing a whole dictionary of words to try to convince you a hard to see dot is better than a easy doughnut of death

  16. comiketiger on September 23, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Great idea and video.! I like this

    God bless all here

  17. Eric Hamm on September 23, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Dude it’s not that hard to make a M16 with moderning equipment. Brownwell must have some bad management or a shit infrastructure. With all the modern CnC and molding processes it seems ridiculous that a company has to say "supply issues". Just make the damn parts yourself dummies.

  18. tjs114 on September 23, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Wait. So Vista now owns Remington Ammo as well? So that’s, what 6 or 7 brands they own, along with a couple of powder manufacturers, RCBS and Hoppe’s?

  19. Mantitude on September 23, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    A 10mm USP would be pretty dope.

  20. RY.G on September 23, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    I was looking for the revamp xd 10mm series disappointing. Also come on, you can’t do a shot show without a visit to kel-tec or magpul

  21. tackytrooper on September 23, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    That Aimpoint rep astounded me with that barrage of verbal diarrea that he unleashed as if on cue. I have no idea what he was trying to say, all I know is that I’m not convinced.

  22. Will Aube on September 23, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Huckle bearer

  23. The666opal111 on September 23, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    IT WAS AWESOME! PagChomp

  24. digifalc0087 on September 23, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    This idea was a good one: getting viewer questions and posing them direct to the various firearms reps. Made for some interesting answers, that’s for sure – especially from the AimPoint rep.

  25. JMH on September 23, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    You know, the Aimpoint rep made a very valid argument and it was presented simply, rationally, and concretely. I have an astigmatism, so the dot-only has mostly been a blur to my eyes, so the ring of death helps my eye focus on the middle dot due to the contrast. But I can’t disagree with his reasoning.

  26. peacemaker0989 on September 23, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    I wouldn’t mind having a 10mm Mk23 along with the 45 ACP model

  27. MrAM4D3U5 on September 23, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    H&K should give ole boy a raise

  28. sultanofsick on September 23, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    what a stupid ass answer from aimpoint. "You just need to not have the problem. Therefore we won’t give you any assistance with dealing with it. Suck less."

  29. ben501st on September 23, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    The "supplier issue" is probably that nodak got bought out and now nodak and h&r will be selling retro AR-15 rifles.

  30. Class Act on September 23, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    These guys must Love seeing Ian. You can see the FEAR in their eyes.👀
    All these Presenters want to do is show their Mediocre Product and have you give them Money.
    The LAST thing they want is a guy who knows his shit come talk to them ON CAMERA.

  31. My favorite Martian on September 23, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Yes, a Dragunov, but with an RPK bulged type trunion so it can have a heavy weight barrel. My only complaint with the one I shot was that after the third shot it began to string shots vertically. But if left to cool, came back to zero. A light weight barrel is nice to carry but sucks to shoot.

  32. Chris Wade on September 23, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Loved this video. Great idea. Hope you can do more.

  33. Seth F on September 23, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Everyone’s talking about the hk guy but I thought the kalashnikov guy actually feels confident in his company, always good to see.

  34. Gun Face on September 23, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Can you not get the UMP in 10mm in the civilian market?

  35. Uprising Firearms on September 23, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    KUSA guy sounds like a politician

  36. Dante M on September 23, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    The S&W Guy was so nervous and looked like someone just shot his dog lmao wtf.

  37. AG W on September 23, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Thank you.

  38. Ekim Temen on September 23, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    What a bunch of useless talking heads. A few were pretty good (HK for example) but the majority of them sounded like I was watching CSPAN. Long-winded non-answers.

  39. Scot H on September 23, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    I am glad to get sort of an answer to what is going on with a Walther micro 9. I guess for the time being I’ll continue to carry my PPS M1 that will undoubtedly be on your channel someday.

  40. Red on September 23, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    HK guy seems more like a Keltech Guy. I mean that as a compliment.

  41. Mitchell Bullins on September 23, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    This is really great content; hope to see a similar segment next year.

  42. RoughneckMP173 on September 23, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    I seen that K-USA is gonna be doing the KR-101, it’ll be nice to have another 5.56mm AK on the US market. But come on,… put out the SVD already!!!

  43. Levi King on September 23, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Aimpoint and the whole dot thing makes sense when using a red dot as intended. Sounds like something Travis Haley would do a really great job and looking into and analyzing

  44. Perry Tilton on September 23, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    I would love a HK 45 sized 10mm in the no safety v3 variant.

  45. TheGoldenCaulk on September 23, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Shame Beretta wasn’t around, I was very curious about their announcement to provide the RM277 commercially.

  46. cynthia on September 23, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    in terms of the amount of non-answers given, i couldn’t really have expected this to go any other way, but i do think if you’re fluent in corporate and know how to translate it there’s some pretty interesting information in some of them

  47. jon doe on September 23, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Anyone else not understand a word that aimpoint guy said

  48. Bryson on September 23, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    The answers from Aimpoint, Walther, and HK were great! This video was awesome. Please continue to make them!

  49. Bryce Sattler on September 23, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    *Brownells is so fkn sëxý*

  50. casey brune on September 23, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    The kalashnikov guy was unbearable. Holy shit
