SHOT Show Media Day – Instathoughts




Spoke with a GLOCK rep.  He said that they didn’t have a carbine with them today.  Interpret that how ever you want.  The rep. Doesn’t know what to expect for the press conference tomorrow.  He said its likely to be an announcement about expanding the 4 gen line.

Hung out at the Ruger booth.  Checked out the LC9.  Interesting pistol.  The safety is stiff, I probably won’t bother using it if I were to carry.  The trigger reminds me of thr PARA LDA trigger.  Ruger expects this pistol to be available to CA in Feb. or March.

The Ruger Scout rifle appears to be an interesting addition.  Bolt action in .308 win.  Bolt sticks on the down rotation.

Young Manufacturing demonstated the ICE-15.  Pretty cool.  He stated that he would be willing to ship to CA with a bullet button

Insight technologies has their MRD, a tougher Doctor sight, if you will.  Reinforced with 4 manual brightness settings.  Battery life of 1000p hours.  Adjustments now come with positive tactile clicks.   

I’ll have more up in a few.  Eating lunch.
