I received the following from the folks at Browning this morning.
"A5s are shipping now. If you ordered an A5 from your dealer a few months ago, you should expect a call soon. Or, better yet, call your dealer right now. Because the hunting seasons are upon us and we know lots of you have been very anxious to get your hands wrapped around a new A5 and bring down some birds."
"If he's out of range, it just means that he has another day and so do you."
