Add Crossover Inventory To Boost Sales.
The burgeoning Law Enforcement & Tactical Gear section of the SHOT Show had nearly 500 booths bustling from the opening of the show to its close — packed with law enforcement officers, members of the U.S. armed forces, SWAT team members and a number of buyers. The growth of this market has prompted many manufacturers from the civilian market to diversify and add tactical products to their line of offerings.
From rifles and ammunition to cleaning products and suppressors, this Law Enforcement & Tactical New Product Showcase highlights over 25 products that will likely have “crossover” appeal from the L.E./Tactical market to civilian consumers. By stocking the products listed in this Showcase, your store can have the edge on the competition when your local L.E./tactical customers look to make their next purchase.
