Did a lot of walking, some eating I probably shouldn’t have. Fascinating. The week following SHOT Show was well deserved recovery time. After the cluster-love last year, I was more prepared to network and talk. I think I took less photos as a result, however. Though I wasn’t necessarily impressed with the firearm announcements this […]
This post does not imply an accurate representation of the variety of women here at SHOT Show.
“The weapon for any mission,” the Colt LE901 is a multi-caliber defense system. The lower receiver utilizes magazine adapters to convert “a single serialized lower receiver into multiple caliber, barrel-length, and operating system configurations.” Swapping uppers is really straight forward.

The Brokos Belt by Viking Tactics is pretty cool. “Lightweight, comfortable and adaptable to a wide range of holsters and accessory pouches… made by warriors for warriors.”
John Willis and Andrew Nelson of Original Special Operations Equipment Gear displayed their product line; one piece of kit caught me eye.
I love wool socks and base layers – especially if they are merino. I’ll have to try these out.
It’s the US Survival Rifle on steroids. California legal. David Ives demonstrates the disassembly the Vanquish when you’re on the go. This is the 20″ barrel. Other barrel lengths are available depending on your mode of carry, i.e., lunch box or suitcase. Check out their website at http://www.nemesisarms.com/.
