Per the manufacturer, ďMade by the official SOFFE brand currently available on military installations. Donít know what size to get? We go by the rule that if it fits, go down a size. Our Ranger Panties, a.k.a. Silkies, will be the most comfortable pair of workout shorts youíll ever wear. Each design features the unique emblems of historical Special Operations units.Ē

#surprise... the #franklinarmory #reformation has non-rifled lands and grooves. Claimed 4 MOA with factory ammo and "near MOA" with these special projectiles. #shotshow @shotshow @franklinarmory

Franklin Armory Reformation non-SBR short barreled "firearm"
« Reply #24 on: January 23, 2018, 04:46:42 PM »
Here are some more photos of the Franklin Armory Reformation

The Reformation is basically a SBR but, instead of the lands and grooves of the barrel being rifled, they are straight along the bore of the barrel.  They claim 4MOA accuracy with off the shelf ammo, and we shot pretty well with it at Range Day.  With their special finned ammo, which looks like a Nerf football with a tail, they claim near MOA performance. 

This is a pretty interesting piece, keep an eye out for a full writeup on it

For less than lethal protection, Sabre is introducing a few new upgrades to their product line. One is the Automotive Pepper ge (#AST-G-W). This device is the normal pepper spray for civilian use that you would expect to see. It also has a glass breaker, seat belt cutter, and a personal alarm that includes a woman screaming. Itís an all-in-one device to keep in the car.

Sabre is also introducing a New stun gun  with 2.516 uC (S-3000SF)

We got a chance to stop by the Fausti USA booth to check out their high end Italian double barreled (SxS and O/U) shotguns, including the commemorative model to celebrate the company's 70th anniversary this year.

Safariland Debuts new Holster-Activated Body Cam Technology at #SHOTshow
« Reply #27 on: January 24, 2018, 03:19:57 AM »
Local press came out to the show to cover new technology for law enforcement officers to activate their body cams any time they draw their weapon.

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) ó Its small, just a few inches, but it could be the future of law enforcement. A hi-tech link; a lifeline for police and an eyewitness for civilians.

Over the past four years, Las Vegas has seen first-person video from police body cameras. It provides a cop's point of view during critical calls.

Officer involved shootings are all reviewed to see if the police were justified in their use of force. Other times, like when Seattle Seahawks star Michael Bennett was tackled and arrested, itís what we didn't see that captured headlines. Bennet claims police threatened his life. The officer who arrested him didn't turn his body camera on.

A company called Safariland thinks they have a solution.

Thier body camera starts recording when an officer pulls his gun. A sensor built into the holster is triggered when a gun is pulled. The officer no longer has to think about hitting record.

The system connects to officers radios and to dispatch. When an officer pulls his gun dispatch is alerted and other officers at a scene are also notified electronically.

The AP's Lame Attempt to Smear #SHOTshow 2018
« Reply #28 on: January 25, 2018, 12:34:01 PM »
Town Hall writer Beth Baumann sent us a message yesterday evening to clue us in about her piece on TH about the Associated Press "Attempt to Destroy SHOT Show's Reputation".

As Beth points out, "The goal of the meeting is to allow firearms manufacturers, dealers and industry-related media to gather and see what guns, accessories and the latest gadgets will be released in the next year." Just as it has for four decades now as the event celebrates its 40th anniversary - with many of those years spent right here in Las Vegas.

However, the AP recently tried to tie the industry trade show - which serves, in large part, military, police, and first responders who help to keep us safe - to the October terrorist attack in Las Vegas by inexplicably using that as the lead in their headline, "Gun industry converges near Las Vegas mass shooting site" as if it were somehow relevant (or accurate).

Quote
The headline implies that the shooting industry is not being sensitive to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, which couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, SHOT Show has taken place in Vegas for roughly 20 years. It wasn't like the Las Vegas shooting occurred, and the NSSF decided to suddenly change the location to stomp on victims and their families.

"The exhibitors and attendees are well aware of the tragedy and feel genuine sympathy for the victims. But they know that the lawful commerce in firearms serving millions of law-abiding citizens is completely unconnected to the actions of a criminal intent on doing harm," Bazinet said.

Bazinet is right. There are millions of law-abiding gun owners across the country. We utilize our God-given, Constitutionally protected, Second Amendment rights.

Just like with everything, there are a few bad apples who try to ruin it for the rest of us. In this case, they're called criminals. And guess what? They're going to do everything in their power to get their hands on a weapon ó whether it be a gun, knife or bomb ó if they're looking to cause bloodshed. ...read more...

There was a lot of new stuff this year.  Weíre still working on putting everything together.

Are you interested in anything in particular?
