SHOT Show officials are banning the ECHO 1 USA booth on the show floor. They are escorting the entirety of Echo 1 personnel from the site of the 2012 show because of a temporary restraining order from CYBERGUN S.A. and FN Herstal.The ban is the alleged result of two lawsuits filed against JAG/Echo1, first in Texas on January 10, and the second filed on the opening day of SHOT Show, January 17. The lawsuits allege that Echo1 is infriging upon the copyrights owned by F.N. Herstal, and contracted out to Cybergun. SHOT Show respresentatives are allegedly working on a statement, but confirmed that Echo 1 was being closed down after the presenters of the SHOT Show were told of a restraining order from CYBERGUN representatives on Friday morning.The JAG Precision/ECHO 1 USA booth was blocked from view by curtains, while Echo 1 employees, including Brian Holt, were dismantling their booth.

Gunny You have got to be kidding me! All this does is hurt the sport and the community as a whole. It is a shame that Cybergun had to go to such lengths. In the interest of the sport and the Airsoft Community at large, they should have put there differences aside and addressed the issue after Shot Show.

As a retailer and Airsofter, I will make my voice heard on my store shelves. Echo 1 will always have a place there. As for Cybergun? I think its time for a clearance sale!
