Shot show...So what great optic releases can we expect to see in 2011?

I am wondering what new scopes were released at the shot show this year? Anything exciting? Hoping to see something to compete better with the PST that will actually make it to the market instead of all hype and broken promises from Vortex. I am hoping that Trijicon came out with some more offerings because I am impressed with their offerings.

Did anyone get to look at the Bushnell 4200 FFP illuminated scope? I have been looking for one in stores for months now and am yet to find one to look at. I will not buy one till I get to look through one.

How about in honor of home prices all the optics companies cut prices by 30%. They are fast approaching home prices anyway! It's hard to believe you can buy a custom action for 1/2 the price of a NF to put on it.

Forgot to mention Sightron as well. Hoping for a higher power illuminated scope that's FFP and affordable (read this as, not cheap but not U.S. Optics, Premier, NF prices. More like along the Vortex Viper PST)

I would really like to see something on the new Sightron SIII models in MOA, I can't find a decent picture of the reticule, kinda looks like a IOR MP-8 but it is hard to tell.

You waited too long. They've been discontinued.

Hopefully we'll see a replacement at the SHOT.

You will be seeing that new G7 NF w/new reticle, probably similar to their velocity reticle, but with added range and windage
