The 151st NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas over Memorial Day Weekend was well-attended by the firearms industry and was there.

Taking place across "14 acres of the latest guns and gear" at the George R. Brown Convention Center, May 27-29, manufacturers, retailers, and outfitters were on hand with lots of new stuff. While we will have much more details on all of the below in the coming week, check out a quick gallery to see if anything whets your appetite.

The new FN 509 Midsize Tactical, offering a 24+1 round 9mm that is optics and suppressor-ready while being about the size of the Glock 19
While the FN SCAR SC is an NFA item that has been around for a few years, word is on the street (not from FN) that a pistol variant could be somewhere on the horizon. So squee to that.

The new IWI Masada Slim is a totally new gun from the old Masada. A micro 9 comparable to the Springfield Armory Hellcat or P365, it has a 13+1 capacity

There was the new .38 SPL DAO Taurus 856 Executive model, complete with Altamont grips.
