It was Super Bowl weekend and Las Vegas had two sure bets going. One was the Patriots and the other was the 30th annual SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show). Well, at least one was a sure bet. The Patriots proved that the underdog always has a chance and the SHOT Show proved that the economy might not be as bad as we think. With over 1,950 exhibiting companies and 59,000 attending, this year broke all records for size and attendance.
Offering apologies is no way to start an article, but I must. The show is only open four days and I know I didn’t see everything. What I will do is take the companies I visited and tell you about one or two of their new products that I found interesting.
Bold new breed for the 21st century, the Springfield XDM .40 pistol is a 17-shot...
