The SHOT SHOW had hundreds and
hundreds of new items on display. These are some of the more interesting ones.
Some of the standard new items like new Remington shotguns, and Ruger rifles I
have purposefully left out as it simply didn't do anything for me. If you were
breathlessly waiting for them, I apologize.
Smith & Wesson has a new
long gun and it is an assault rifle called the MP-15. the fit and finish
of this gun was excellent and the action was very smooth. A really nice
This is the new
Sig assault rifle called the Sig 556. This one has all the bells and
whistles and should give all the rest a run for the money.
is one that will really make S&W sit up and take notice. This is the
new Taurus 2 inch 500 S&W. Very smooth and functions the way it
should. The barrel is ported and the grips are angled right. A 5 shot
flashy? here are 2 Taurus 2 inch snubbies in fire blue and gold.
If the 2 Taurus
revolvers weren't flashy enough here is a semi auto that would make you
the king in San Francisco. This is their TP-22.
Armalite now is
into handguns. This is one of their new ones. Much like the Witness line
of pistols this one comes in 9mm and 40 caliber.
Center has updated their Encore rifles and pistols with a revolving
hammer that you can position left or right to get it out from under the
scope. This will also be a feature that you can send your older encore
back in for updating.
is the Israeli Bul Cherokee. An unusual see thru frame sets this one off
along with special milling work on the slide. This comes in 9mm and 40
is one that has to be Class 3 here in the states but is street legal in
Israel where it is made. It is the Bul Compact with front handguard and
shoulder stock. 9mm.
want to shoot something around the corner. Well, now you can. This was
actually out last year but this is the first chance I had to get a
picture or two of it. Look closely and you will see the pistol sitting
in the top of the frame. The electronic screen has a set of crosshairs
in it so you simply ease the front of the unit around the corner, place
the crosshairs on the target and pull the trigger in the rear of the
unit. neat huh? They have 3 models of this. One for handguns, one for
AR-15, and one for a 40 mm grenade launcher.
is the Israeli Bul model 5 with a new type of sight on it. The rear
aperture turns red when it is on the target. You simply pull the trigger
and you got 'em.
notice in the reloading manuals where it tells you what the load was
fired in and it says "universal receiver"? Well, this is a
universal receiver. This is why I don't put a lot of credence in some
loading manuals. just because it is safe in this monster doesn't mean it
is safe in my old piece of junk. It can also be used as a rail gun for
those anal enough to want to use something like this.
obviously has some new people that are interested in what people want.
For years they have been stuck in this mode of ugly guns only. Now they
are actually building guns that will interest people who don't like
ugly. These 3 are some of their new custom guns
This is another
special custom Sig. This is their new Piranha. Not bad.
And yet another
custom Sig. This one is their Mosquito 22 full custom
actually has what they call their custom Longslide. It's only 1/2 inch
longer than their standard model but at least they are trying.
This one should
keep the cats out of the back yard. This is a new 40mm pump grenade
launcher. It is actually a remake of an older model that they are
putting back out.

knew Ruger was coming out with this one and here it is. The 50th
anniversary 44 magnum flattop. It is a small frame and short cylinder
revolver so don't plan on shooting any 300 grain LBTs in this one.
Oh yes, just in
case you missed it on the forum. This is the nicest thing at the SHOT
SHOW. Cindy Garrison of GET Wild with Cindy garrison. Don't know who the
old goat is with her.
That is some of the new items we saw at
the SHOT SHOW. There were many many more but I thought you might be interested
