For those that don't know, the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoors Tradeshow (SHOT) sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is the largest industry tradeshow in the world for the outdoors community, and it is an event on par with the Superbowl and World Cup rolled into one for the folks that like to get dirty and smell the fresh air.
This year we sent our correspondent Kampfer to poke around SHOT and report back to us on what was new and noteworthy. Here's a list of what he came up with:
As we get closer and closer to SHOT we are starting to get more and more info on what kinds of things we are likely to see from each of the big manufacturers. This year the folks at BladeHQ are giving us our first looks at what Leatherman is releasing, something the folks at Leatherman were't happy about when I announced their new tools before they did a few years ago during the Sidekick and Wingman debut.
Just announced, the new Maxpedition Entity series of Non-Tactical/Tactical (NTT) bags designed to look unassuming, yet afford the organiazional options needed for covert operators. Yup, insert rolling eye smiley here. The marketing is over the top (as usual), but the reality of having a non-ninja type bag but with all of the organizational possibilities we are used to in miilitary style gear would probably come in handy to those of us that don't commute to and from war zones.
