SHOT Show 2010: Day One Videos & Tweets

If you’re not in Las Vegas, then you’re not at the No. 1 industry event of the year: SHOT Show 2010. On our sister blog, we highlighted seven things to check out at the show. Yet following the event’s kickoff, attendees have given us much more to share. They’ve been busy blogging and tweeting about, well, everything — from Asian noodles to tactical scopes. Here’s just an iota of what you’re missing out on.

As always, there’s been product launches galore including Smith & Wesson’s Bodyguard Line, Thompson/Center Arms Company’s new Muzzleloader and Youth .22 Caliber Rifle and Glock’s Glock 22 Gen4 in .40 caliber and Glock 17 Gen4 in 9X19. And if you’re looking for more updates, The NRA Blog was posting almost hourly yesterday and should follow that trend again today.

Meanwhile, we’ve collected an assortment of videos covering yesterday’s SHOT Show madness that have been uploaded in the past 24 hours. The video below comes from the Outdoor Channel featuring Bone Collector co-hosts T-Bone Turner, Nick Mundt and Michael Waddell talking guns … what else?! “It’s an animal,” says Mundt about the gun he’s holding in the video.

Jason from Vectronix introduces us to SORD, or Shooter Objective Ranging Device, which, according to CS Tactical, is already in use by Marines and SEAL Snipers.

Matt Hughes, a nine-time UFC Welterweight Champion, says hi from the U.S. Optics booth.

Here’s a quick demo of the new American Precision Arms’ Bottom Metal.

Another demo, this one of the Premier V8 1.1-8×24 CQB Tactical Scope…

And yet another demo… check out ArmaLite’s AR15 Cutaway.
