SHOT Show’s Media Day is an opportunity for members of the media to put their hands on many of the new offerings and send a little lead down range. This year’s event was plagued by unseasonably low temperatures and a good 20 m.p.h. wind driving temperatures to below freezing. Vendors in attendance deserve special recognition. They had folks on site since 6:00 a.m. and I have to believe some suffered hypothermia.
In spite of inclement weather, the event was a major success. The talk of the town was the IWI tent where we had an opportunity to test fire the Tavor. I’ll have much more to say about this exceptional rifle. KRISS was also at the top of the list. You’ll love what KRISS has done to improve its Vector product line. Precision rifles were also well represented by Ashbury International, HK, SIG, Remington and Beretta.
