Nikon Meeting in New York City!

Steven K. Ledin,

Nikon Monarch 6-24x50SF

The weather was pretty good for New York’s Long Island, where Nikon keeps its corporate offices. We’ve known the good folks there for quite a while and have a great working relationship with them, besides being friends. This trip was to pick our brains as one of their most strategic partners, and to talk about products to be introduced at this year’s SHOT show. I’ve hunted with some of these folks in Africa and Iowa, and the informality of the meetings keeps conversations interesting and honest. The new sport optics products for 2012 are as exciting as any company has ever done. Still top secret stuff and I gave my word I wouldn’t speak of them until they give me the okay. Suffice it to say that I am extremely excited for the new offerings.

OPMOD products are taking off like crazy, and justifiably so. Our binoculars are truly the best value on the market. Great products with a lifetime warranty.
