    I can't for the life of me explaing it, but I am really intrigued by the future release of the KelTec PMR 30.... semi-auto pistol, 30 round magazine, chambered in .22 mag.

    as seen at SHOT (so I've heard)

    I am with you on that....Very nice pistol from what I have seen in pics...

    Being a recent owner of a brandy new STI Escort 45 for EDC rotation and loving that pistol.... the Shadow will have to what for while. STI makes some real nice pistols that work right out of the box 100% at a pretty fair price.

    I know I am going to get a lecture on this that the gun is useless and all that...but the Taurus Raging Judge just looks cool. I mean, .454 Casull, .45LC and .410 shot shells? That thing is cool.

    The most intriguing thing from the Shot Show for me was that the Coonan .357 Magnum Automatic is back. Definately on my wish list. I hope it's more successful this time around.

    I'd think they would've made it prettier and beavertailed it. I've read good things about them, but I think they'd sell more if they made it less blocky looking. It looks too much like a prototype.

    I like the Coonan as it is.
    I think there are enough pretty beavertailed 1911s

    Agreed!
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    I'm fine with the looks. It looks like a functional tool, but that's just my taste I suppose. The real kicker for me is .357 mag firepower in a carryable semi-auto platform. .357 mag is my favorite handgun cartridge. The Coonan wouldn't make me give up wheelguns, but I think it would be a really nice option to have available.

    I guess you guys missed it...
    But without a darn doubt, the ATI AR 15 style gun chambered in 12 ga. shotgun was the most exciting thing I saw. Problem is I can not find any more about it. Kind of fell off the planet somehow.

    Whether I like this gun or not, it's refreshing to see gun manufacturers innovate. There have been many technological advances with polymers and alloys in the last few decades and it looks like Taurus is trying something that is definately a far cry from the norm. I for one have never been a huge fan of Taurus auto pistols but they seem to make a "good" quality revolver. Ruger started the poly-revolver craze with their hybrid LCR. Smith has followed them closely with their new Bodyguard but Taurus appears to have taken an entirely different direction.

    At first glance all I can say is that the FUGLY faux-wood grips need to be reconsidered before launching this on mainstream gun buyers. Still, I would love to get my hands on one and take it for a spin. It is entirely possible that the thickness required to give the polymer enough strength has made this gun much larger than its exotic alloy breathren for the sake of a few ounces. Regardless, I like new ideas and hope this one pans out for them.

    Question

    Hayley:

    Have you had the opportunity to handle (fondle?) a Shadow, yet? If so, got any thoughts?

    Years ago when the hi-cap modular frame design came out of STI, I seriously considered a custom build at the time. I was quoted $2100 with very few trimmings. What an amazing pistol, though. When the VIP came out, I had a hard time concentrating. (I've gotten better, thank you very much.)

    But the Shadow is one of the nicest compacts they've created. It seems the Officer's sized compact line-up has really come into its own, with STI. It's not quite as thin as their thinnest, nor light as the lightest. But it has so many excellent features in combination that it's darned hard to ignore. And now, they are able to get twice the features into a pistol that's nearly half the price of those early 2011's ... with the Shadow and similar models.

    Seeing as how you're so close to the Shooter's Connection, I am assuming that you've been ogling the new models as they've been introduced.
