I just sent Sturm, Ruger an email voicing my opinion of their support for this show. i'll make sure my dollars are directed towards the companies that boycott.

Next email went to Hevi-shot. Hope some of you hevi-shot users vote with your $$$s as well.

Hevi-shot is on both lists. I'll be interested in their response.

If they pull, I'll try some this turkey season.

I am REALLY surprised they haven't pulled out. Really.

And I hate it, cause I have P89 that I love.

Glad to see this. I have a friend in Hershey pa and had planned to go visit him and spend a few days looking around. But when we heard the stance the show took on guns we decide to just wait to visit later on this summer. He says a lot of talk around him is all the people not going to the show. Glad to see ruger on the list now. I was getting ready to put a couple sr9cs up for sale lol

There is a much larger list of exhibitors than the list that was previously posted. There are over 1000 exhibitors. The complete alphabetical list is here:

View All Exhibitors

There seem to be 2 boycott lists being periodically updated. They are not in complete alignment with each other. Some names are on one but not on the other.

ESOS Boycott Supporters

List of exhibitors boycotting the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show

As far as gunmakers go, Ruger, Smith&Wesson and Thompson Center have pulled out. Mossberg and Savage have not. Remington, Winchester and Weatherby are not on the list of exhibitors. Looks like they never planned to attend. Need to crank up the heat on Mossberg and Savage!

I was curious, so I went through the complete list of exhibitors and noted some familiar names that are currently not on either boycott list:

Archer's Choice (Chattanooga bow shop)
Cannon gun safes
Carl Zeiss optics
Dick's Sporting Goods
Ford trucks
Fort Knox gun safes
Foxworthy Outdoors
Ghillie Suits
Gunbroker.com
Jack Daniels
John Deere
Liberty Gun Safes
Millennium Treestands
Mossberg
Parker bows
Polaris
Ram trucks
Respect Outdoors TV show (Robert Arrington)
Savage Arms
Summit Treestands
Ted Nugent's Spirit of the Wild
TenPoint Crossbows
ThermaCell
Timbertall Treestands
Treewalker Treestands (a TN company)
Wasp Archery

Matthews Inc said that corporately they don't generally attend and definitely wouldn't this year. They posted on their fb page about it. I'm keeping a list of the ones not going because of it and will do my best to support them.



I'll do the same!

Here is a current list of the companies listed as an exhibitor:

There are still 258 companies that are still going to appear. maybe they all need to get some emails.


The best thing would be for NOBODY show up the entire length of the show.
That would be more powerful than an email.




That would tickle me to death!
