Well its that time of the year again, time for the annual H&H Shooting Sports Summer Expo, the three day event that brings the shooting sports industry directly to Oklahoma City. This years Summer Expo will take place from Thursday the 14th until Saturday the 16th from 9am to 9pm. Each year over 100 factories are represented, including all of the major companies, and they come and show off their product lines directly to the public. While all of this is happening the main focus is the storewide savings that are offered all over the store. Deep discounts and several items offered below dealer cost! This is truly a one of a kind event.
What I believe will be the main attraction of this years Expo will be the Smith & Wesson table where they will be showing off the M&P line of Smith & Wesson firearms, including the M&P Shield. Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield now joins the growing crop of palm-size, slim-and-trim single-stack 9mms that have been appearing on the handgun market at a rapid rate over the last few years. It is the lightest and smallest 9mm personal-defense auto S&W has yet offered: only six inches long, 4½ inches high, less than an inch thick and weighing just 19 ounces. Based on the duty-proven full-size S&W M&P design, it will undoubtedly take a prominent place in the concealed carry world. Moreover, the new Shield is also available chambered in .40 S&W. Same size, same weight, same design. The only difference between the M&P9 Shield and the M&P40 Shield, in fact, is that the magazines for the M&P40 Shield hold one less round than the M&P9 Shield magazines. The M&P9 Shield comes with one semi-staggered flat-base seven-round magazine and one extended-base eight-round mag; the M&P40 Shield comes with one six-rounder and one seven-round magazine. The Shield, along with the rest of the M&P line will be a highlight of the Summer Expo, and will keep the Smith & Wesson booth pretty busy for sure.
The H&H Shooting Sports Summer Expo is an event that the whole family can enjoy, as there will be something to keep everybody entertained. I have it on good authority that there will be a special appearance by the mascots for the Oklahoma City Dodgers,Brooklyn, who will be at the Summer Expo on Saturday from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. The Dodgers will also be sending out their inflatable bounce houses and other fun inflatables Friday 2-6 & Saturday 10-6.
The Kids Archery 101 Classes will be returning for the 2016 Summer Expo. The last two years these classes have proven to be one of the highlights of the Expo, and this year is sure to follow the trend. Young Archers will want to be sure to participate in these classes!
This years Summer Expo will be so exciting, the building wont be able to contain it all, as there will be several activities out front, including Alan Broerse’s Storm Tracker News 9 truck, a knife forging demo & cutting competition.
While visiting the manufactures tables you will be given the opportunity to take any of their display firearms out onto the range for a test fire. It is this kind of hands on test firing that attracts shooters of all experience levels to the biggest party of the summer, the H&H Summer Expo. Outside of the factory representative tables there will also be storewide sales on many items. Highly attractive discounts will be given on the already low prices on merchandise storewide.
This years event will be bigger than ever with HOURLY DOOR PRIZES offered all 3 days (you must be present to win) leading up to the grand prize drawing on Saturday night (where you do not have to be present to win). Each ticket that you buy to shoot a firearm from the manufactures tables will enter you into that hour’s door prize drawing and into the big drawing on Saturday night. The tickets are $4 each or 3 for $10.
This year’s Summer Expo will attract shooters young and old, and of all experience levels as they take a look at what is new from the industry, all gathered conveniently in one location at H&H Shooting Sports off of I-40 & Meridian.
