SHOT Show: Industry Day at the Range

Though SHOT Show’s official start date is Tuesday, January 21,  media, exhibitors and attendees from all over the world get a sneak peek at all the new products at Industry Day at the Range. Hosted at Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club Monday, January 20, participants got their first looks and first shots on many new products debuting at SHOT Show.

As usual, was on hand to snap a few pictures of some of our favorite things.
