SHOT Show 2015 – Overall

Purpose accomplished.

I didn’t catch the SHOT Show crud, had a good time, good food, and hung out with some great folks.

While nothing in particular excited me, there were several products that caught my eye.

For the last several years, Next Level Training only offered a Shot Indicating Resetting Pistol resembling a Glock 17.  However, in approximately six months, they intend on releasing the SIRT modeled after the Smith & Wesson M&P semi-automatic pistol.  But that’s not all.  Inside the new SIRT, they’ve included a third feature – initial trigger uptake.  This will activate when the shooter feathers/tickles the trigger, enabling trainers to safely troubleshoot naughty fingers.  Their intent is to include this feature in all models.

In other news, NLT is entertaining a SIRT compact pistol.  While they’re not certain what model they will use, they intend that it will be a representation of a majority of compact pistols to accommodate concealed carry drills.

FNS-9 Compact.  Also available are magazine plates and sleeves straight from the manufacturer.

I’m partial to the SpecterDR; however, the Leupold D-EVO is an optic I’m interested seeing more of.  Instead of a lever, you can switch from any red dot to 6 power magnification “with a simple shift of the eye.”  The check weld to accommodate this set up is different.  Photo of reticle is courtesy of Leupold.

Blue Force Gear.  They’re offering a new day pack that offers all the tactical features without screaming tactical.  Inside the bag is lined with loop to attach an assortment of pouches to partition out your gear.  Black, tan, Multicam, and grey will be the color options that should be available on their website in about two weeks.  Further, they also have an expanded line of their belt pouches.  I’ll be picking up one of these pouches to carry horizontally to see if the ULTRAcomp material improves minor printing, or at the very least, a potential point of abrasion.

Their magazine carriers are also stackable along with tabs that can accommodate M4 and AK magazines.

I mostly ate at Grimaldi’s more than I should have, and consumed great steak at Gallaghers with good alcohol and friends.  Overall, it was a good short trip.  It appears at this juncture that SHOT Show was just an excuse to fly out to Vegas.
