    SHOT Show 2012

    Since there's not much talk of SHOT 2012 here, I figured I'd at least link to the subforum on m4c covering SHOT.

    Here are links for SHOT Facebook page images

    A quick recap of the things that stood out to me...

    • 2 MOA Aimpoint T1

    • Surefire's new 500 lumen X300 ultra, 500/15 lumen LX2 as well as a couple other 500 lumen lights and a new IR X400.

    • Surefire mini 7.62 can

    • AAC new 90 tooth adapters, discontinuing of the MITR mount and the new mini 7.62 which will be smaller than Surefire's mini 7.62.

    • LMT's new lightweight LR8 MRP and MWS chassis as well as some other products related to the monolithic chassis

    • Knight's Armament's new URX 3.1 and new versions of the SR15 and SR25

    • Tavor available to US customers

    • New factory barrel, including the 10" 5.56 and 13.5" 7.62, for the SCAR

    • New factory barrels for the ACR

    Plus other stuff popping up here and there as well as some nonsense like EoTech's Zombie (BioHazard) reticle.

    Damn! No cool stuff like new S&W revolvers, or lever guns? Sounds kinda boring so far.:-)

    Is there a new version of the 238 with ambi safeties, or do I have to buy a 938 to get that feature? If there is no new 238, I'm going to be getting on the list for the 938 this weekend.

    I'm excited for the Tavor. I have had a crush on those things for years. I might bring one home if the price is right.

    I think it's going to be a bit over $2,000 if I read it right.

    Not S&W, but I read something about Charter showing a .40 S&W revolver at the show with a 9mm revolver to come later.

    I heard something about a Nikon M-223 that is either 1-3x or perhaps fixed 3x with an MSRP of about $150. I have a 1-4x M-223 that I am very happy with, I could see a 3x version on a 5.56mm rifle or two if the information I heard is accurate.

    I'd also really like to see a 4 MOA Aimpoint PRO, I don't care for the 2 MOA dots.

    The new LaRue rifles look really nice. A few people on another forum have been asking for a standard barrel PredatAR.

    I hope you're having a good time. About 75% of the people I associate with are there and I'm not! I thought about flying out Wednesday, but back out. I'll likely go next year.

    It would have been nice since my Dad is sick and he's in LA but is in Vegas monthly. It would have been nice to meet up with him there as well as some friends of mine. I'm not really diggin' the new ultra lightweight plate carriers, which seems like a new trend. I was happy with the size of the LMAC and JPC, but these new ones really don't seem all that much more low profile, just a hair lighter.

    The new KAC rails withOUT the integrated from sight as well as the new rail covers and handstops has me wanting one. AAC's new stuff is interesting, but they change their munts too much for me, so I'll be sticking to Surefire for now.

    Anything that really stood out to you HKinNY?

    From my tour there was not much on the new front for weapons that I saw, just little tweaks in product lines. The show order offers were down to buy 2 and get the third one with the order. What amazed me was even Barrett had a 2 for one deal, buy a 50 bmg & a 338 lapua and get a Rec-7 in the deal. Previous years it was 4 or 5 to 1!

    In speaking with Ruger, their LCR 22 LR will be the only 22 caliber they'll bring out for now. They stated that the 22 mag seem to cause a problems with the action and cylinder lock up? So their limited to only 22LR, but they'll continue working on it but it won't be an interchangable cylinder if they do come out with a 22 mag.

    The most action was yesterday Steven Tyler toured the show: StevenTylerShotShow_01192012.jpg

    The attendance must be down as they was never a problem with self parking like pervious years.

    Well it is back to work next week.
