Can you believe 2015 is already drawing to a close? This past year saw the growth of the IWI US line of firearms, including the UZI® PRO and Jericho® pistols, as well as our 40,000th Tavor® shipped in the USA. We also won the NASGW Importer of the Year award for the second consecutive year.
Now, as we count down the days to 2016, we stop to take a moment to wish all of our loyal and dedicated customers and fans a belated Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay tuned for our January issue in which we will wrap up the 2016 SHOT Show in Las Vegas and announce the winner of the Laura Burgess Marketing $6,000 Gun and Gearaway.
In the meantime, stay warm, stay healthy and stay vigilant.
Sincerely, Michal Kassnar
VP, Sales & Marketing

IWI TAVOR®: HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT
The state of Israel declared its independence from Great Britain on May 14, 1948. Since that time it has been in an almost continual state of war against one or more of the Muslim countries that completely surround it. This state of nearly continuous warfare has produced one of the great bullpup rifles of the modern world: the IWI Tavor®.
Have you entered to win the Laura Burgess Marketing $6,000 Gun and Gearaway yet? The amazing prize package, built around our Tavor® SAR, includes firearm accessories, apparel and more from top industry brands like Dead Air Armament, ATN, Mission First Tactical and Tacprogear. This is your last chance, the Gearaway closes on Thursday, December 31, 2015.
Last month we asked you to tell us which new IWI firearm you wanted most this holiday season and, as always, we received some great responses. Here are the four who will receive IWI hats for the holidays!
"Which new IWI firearm do I want? I purchased an UZI® Model B Carbine with part of my reenlistment bonus in 1983 and it is still going strong and a blast to shoot. I expect its descendant, the UZI® Pro pistol, to be just as much fun and to last just as long." (Guy T., Virginia)
"The IWI firearm I want most is the UZI® PRO pistol. Because if I need a pistol to fight my way to my Tavor®, I want an UZI®." (Dan K., Pennsylvania)
"My most desired IWI protection is undoubtedly the IWI Tavor®. I could go on about how ‘clean’ it operates, its hammer forged barrel and the like, but this is the complete package for any CQB, SHTF or home protection-situation." (Mark W., Ohio)
"I would like an IWI Tavor®. Having spoken to several military personnel familiar with this battle-proven design, they have assured me that this is the best bullpup on the market. My own research has confirmed its reliability, durability and accuracy." (Layne F., Florida)
