With over 170,000 sq. ft of SHOT Show exhibition floor space to explore, there is a little something for everyone in the shooting, hunting, outdoors and law enforcement industry.
Here are some of the more interesting things we encountered on Wednesday.
This traffic cone-looking thing is an A-WASP, which stands for Acoustic Warning Signal Projector. Developed in the UK, the less-lethal crowd control device can be used to reach out and “dissuade individuals or groups at ranges greater than 250m (800ft)” through the power of sound. SHOT includes an entire section of LE-related vendors. (Photos: Chris Eger/Guns.com)
It also lights up
Virginia-based Ashbury Precision Ordnance specializes in rifles that don’t light up..
….but can dissuade at ranges greater than 250m
Getting some (simulated) trigger time in on an M134 Mini-Gun
Such sims are becoming increasingly popular in the industry
In “real life” gun news, HK is stepping up their use of push-button mag releases on their pistols
While S&W is making sure to keep classics like the M29
And M19 in production
Speaking of wheelguns, how many NAA Mini-Revolvers can you fit in your hand? Your mileage may vary with mitt size.
Over at Gemtech, we found this sweet little Glock 43 with a Gemtech Aurora-II 9mm can through the magic of an S3F Solutions threaded barrel. Hey, isn’t Gemtech owned by S&W?
And an immaculate Remington 700 with a Gemtech Tracker .300 Win Mag
Florida-based Black Aces Tactical is making their own semi-auto 12 gauges complete with a 14-inch barrel that are sold without the need for a tax stamp. The receivers for these “firearms” (not a shotgun) are made totally in-house of 6061 T6 aluminum. They have a 4+1 capacity and 26.5-inch overall length at a retail starting at $449.
When paper is too boring and explosive canisters are too much, check out Spüt. These targets are newbies to the shooting industry, but they help you see exactly where you are hitting your target on the range.
Predators are hunters themselves – wary, aggressive, and elusive. Shot opportunities often come quickly, and rounds like the 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester, or .22-250 Remington can make or break your hunt.
