The management and staff of the AHI Bulletin and the African Hunting Gazette wish the entire international firearms and hunting industry a happy and prosperous festive season and great success on the 2014 expo circuit. We hope that 2014 will be an extremely successful season for all and that the world will be spared any tragedies caused by the mentally ill and then blamed on the existence of firearms. We also pray that poaching will be brought under increasing control and that wildlife management all around the world will increasingly improve.
