Gilbert Berry, owner of St. George-based Berry’s, said his company’s 90 employees make mostly plastic containers for ammunition and projectiles. This was his 35th SHOT Show, the last 25 as an exhibitor.
"I meet a lot of old friends," he said. "Some are starting to fade out. They are all getting old like us."
Christensen Arms, a Gunnison company with revenue of $15 million in 2013, employs 115 people. According to Kaitlyn Anderson, the company’s latest innovation this year is its ability to sell its carbon-fiber barrels, triggers, stocks and bolt actions as separate parts. In addition, it is introduced a Lock Tech Match Trigger System and a new sporting rifle.
Some of the companies which participate in the SHOT Show will be making their way up to Salt Lake City next week for the annual Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, where the industry differs a bit from the gun-oriented SHOT Show but still offers outdoor products for camping and other similar outdoor pursuits.
