Gallery: Poking around the corners of SHOT Show (PHOTOS)

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/

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.

How about this wheeled 9mm mini-Gatling?

Or its more electrically-powered cousin?

Two world wars…

SAKO/Tikka makes some sought after rifles

Founded in 1919 to repair inherited Mosin-Nagants left over from the country’s days as part of the Russian Empire, the company is still going strong

And they are easy on the eyes as well

While Walther reminded visitors to their booth that they are more than just pistols

Rossi also wants people to know they aren’t just revolvers

Beretta is still firmly in the biz of making upland game hunters look good

But don’t worry, they also make more understated models
