Here are some of the interesting things I saw at SHOT Show 2014
Blue Force Gear’s Tacti-Raptor conquers all SHOT Show exhibits for now and all time!
Crimson Trace Rail Master Pro
This is a light/laser combo unit available with green or red laser and a 100 lumen light. It runs on a single CR123 battery for up to an hour of continuous use. It has 4 modes; laser only, light only, light and laser, and strobing light and laser. MSRP $279 for red, $379 for Green.
Glock 42 Subcompact .380. While I would have preferred to see this in 9mm. It is small without being too small, and it has the same trigger pull and reset as a full size Glock. This is a critical feature for continuity of training for shooters who use full size Glocks most of the time.
Samson Manufacturing has released their own line of Aimpoint mounts and their own 3.5x magnifier. I hope to do a complete review of these products in the future.
Hornady’s new safe is the ideal balance of security and accessbility. Users can use a mechanical key, combination code pad, magnetic card, or wrist band to open the safe. When accessed the lid springs open presenting the handgun contained in a slot with thick foam on both sides. It plugs into the wall and uses AA batteries for back up. This design really addresses a lot of the things wrong with other electronic safes as far as ease of use goes. MSRP will be around $250.00
Safariland GLS holster. The retention device is disengaged when the shooter grips the handgun naturally.
New Safariland holster for red dot equipped pistols. It has a cover that completely encloses the pistol protecting the sight from environmental conditions. The cover swings out of the way on the draw.
Safariland 7TS Injection Molded holsters. These are available with both SLS or ALS mechanisms. Safariland Reps stated that the material is stronger than their orginal holster designs. MSRP is around $50.00.
Magpul MOE AK47 Mag. Significantly lighter than traditional AK mags. These are supposed to work in the Sig 556R as well.
GG&G offset irons are a fast to acquire ghost ring style.
