From the same company that brought us ‘Tactical Bacon’, comes the Tac Snac. The Tac Snac is high in protein, low in fat, and made of beef and pork. According to CMMG, the Tac Snac is “Perfect for camping, hunting, zombie standoffs, and end of the world scenarios”.

SHOT Show 17 – SERBU Firearms GB-22

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

IMG_0087

This is the SERBU GB-22, a single shot, open bolt .22 pistol designed to be extremely simple to build, even with basic handtools, as necessity or availability of materials and tools dictates. Because it’s so basic, it also lends itself to as much modification as the builder deems appropriate. For example, the GB-22 doesn’t have sights as part of its standard design, but a creative sort can include irons in the design, or as is the case in the model above, create a mounting platform for an electro-optic. In case you were wondering, the ‘GB’ in GB-22 stands for ‘Gun Buyback’, as creator Mark Serbu has pretty much stated that because of the simple design the GB-22 can be built up quick and cheap and used to game a gun buyback program.

IMG_0083

The plans are available right now on SERBU’s site for a paltry $12 (link here). If you feel you’re not mechanically-inclined enough to take advantage of the plans, then you’ll have to wait until SERBU receives BAFTE approval for a built kit.

At the Six12 booth, this wood furniture variant of the futuristic bullpup rotary drum shotgun was on display. It would be pretty cool to see this variant make production when the Six12 releases.

SHOT Show 2017 – Umarex Legends

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Umarex’s ‘Legends’ consists of full-auto blowback action bb guns patterned after iconic weapons, or as Umarex’s marketing puts it, “Designs that changed history”. Two of the guns in this line caught my eye, the M712, and the MP, which is also new for 2017.

M712

IMG_4429

The M712 is patterned after the M712 “Schnellfeuer” or “Fast Fire” C96 Mauser, which was capable of full-auto fire and sported a detachable magazine. Umarex’s bb version follows suit, featuring full metal construction, full-auto or semi-auto fire, and an 18-round detachable magazine, which also houses the CO2 cartridge needed to power the gun’s action.

MP

IMG_4430

The MP is patterned after the iconic MP40, and like the M712 above, features full metal construction and select fire. The MP’s action is powered by two 12g CO2 capsules which are housed in the 60-round detachable magazine. The MP comes complete with a folding stock and adjustable rear sight with fixed front post.

SHOT Show 2016 – Gerber Gear

Monday, January 25th, 2016

Strongarm Fixed Blade

DSC07071

The Strongarm is one of Gerber’s most popular fixed blade knives. It consists of a full tang 420 HC steel blade, with a rubberized diamond-texture grip. The Strongarm comes complete with a multi-mount, MOLLE-compatible sheath.

DSC07073

Available in Black and Tan handle finishes, and with or without blade serration.

Ghoststrike Fixed Blade w/ Ankle Wrap Sheath

DSC07075

Gerber’s Ghoststrike is a fixed blade knife with a drop point, fine edge blade, made of 420 HC ceramic coated steel. The handle is skeletonized, with a rugged texture for a sure grip. The Ghoststrike can be purchased with an ankle wrap holster, which allows for the Ghoststrike to be utilized as a concealed and/or backup blade.

Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit

DSC07082

A bit different than the other offerings I checked out at the booth, the Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit is nonetheless worth taking a look at. The Camp Kitchen Kit comes with the Camp Kitchen and Paring Knives, a built-in ceramic sharpener, locking drawer, and drip channel around the board. The case itself is bright green, which matches the handle accents of the included knives, and makes it easy to identify.

39 Series Knives

DSC07080

The 39 Series is a collection of blades that hearkens back to Gerber’s start as a blade maker. The 39 Series features a 420 HC steel blade, and a cero-coated stainless steel handle. The blades will be available in sizes Small and Large, in Black, Gold, and Silver finishes. These are an “indie-dealer” exclusive, so you won’t be seeing these at any big-box retailer.

DSC07079

Be on the lookout for the 39 Series Knives later this year.

SHOT Show 2015 – Magpul – Dyed Magazines

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

DSC05305

In case you didn’t know, Magpul introduced the new Sand color for their M3 PMAGs. These new mags are not only stronger than the original black M3 PMAGs, but they’re also much more receptive to water-based dye processes, allowing for a greater range of colors. Over at the Magpul booth, Jon Canipe was kind enough to line up the dye jobs they came up with just in time for the show. I gotta say that the pink came out pretty damn good.

The Benchloader’s design allows users to quickly load up to 30-rounds through its single stroke loading action.

SHOT Show 2015 – Beretta – M9A3

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

IMG_0551.JPG

Here it is, the M9A3. The most noticeable change from a handling standpoint is the grip. You can definitely feel the difference between it and the grip on the M9A1. The threaded barrel is also a nice touch. The Civilian/LE model is set to release later this year. Below is the original announcement article, courtesy of SSD.

IMG_0552.JPG

Recently, Beretta has announced the M9A3, the next generation of the M9 US Military Service Pistol. The M9A3 is being submitted via an Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) in accordance with the terms of the current M9 contract.

“The M9A3 represents the next generation military handgun utilizing the best of the legacy M9 combined with proven COTS modifications that increase performance and durability” stated Gabriele de Plano, Vice President of Military Marketing and Sales for Beretta USA. Mr. de Plano added, “After listening closely to the needs of U.S. Army and other Service small arms representatives, we determined the M9, much like its counterpart legacy weapon systems (M4, M16, M240, etc.), was capable of being upgraded through material and design changes. The resulting M9A3 we are offering to the DOD will likely cost less than the current M9 and answer almost all of the Services’ enhanced handgun requirements.”

The M9A3 features:

– A thinner grip
– Removeable, modular wrap-around grip
– 1913 accessory rail
– Removable front and rear tritium sights
– Extended barrel with threading for a suppressor
– 17-round sand-resistant magazine
– Improvement to various small components
