Since 1979 SHOT Show has been one of the most popular shooting, hunting and outdoor trade shows in the world.
Back for round two, we’ve compiled videos of new products revealed during day one of the show as well as Twitter updates from the lucky show-goers.
Day One Videos:
The brand-new Kimber Solo 9mm Micro-Compact Pistol is pocket-size and weighs only 17 ounces!
View the new products from Spartan Imports described by Sean St. Cin. You will see their Classic Army, Magpul PTS, A&K, Javelin and H&K lines.
It looks like a lighter but it’s not, it’s the new Zippo Emergency Fire Starter Kit.
Phil Cashin, owner of Masterpiece Arms debuts the new MPA 9300SST-X Tactical Carbine.
Cam Edwards chats with NRA President Ron Schmeits about “the greatest show there ever is.”
