    SHOT Show 2007

    Is there anything specific you guys want me to report back on? I walked about 2/3 of the show yesterday.

    Nothing earth shattering so far this year. Notes from day one:
    - Magpull's prototype rifle came out of no where and is an interesting design. Side charging handle and ambi controls. .223 caliber. It uses standard AR barrels and fire control parts.
    - There are some new flashlight makers that have good products. Surefire and Pentagon will have to work even harder to maintain market share. Competition is a good thing.
    - There are some new emergency medical supply products that will make gunshot wound kits better. ***IF YOU CARRY A GUN OR SPEND TIME ON A SHOOTING RANGE YOU NEED TO HAVE A BLOW OUT KIT AND SOME TRAINING TO BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS***
    - XS is FINALLY going to release Big Dot sights for the AK. We've been asking for this for years and yesterday I played with a pre-production set on an AK. These should ROCK.
    - The airsoft, paintball and Chinese knock-off gear section is expanding every year. There must be some serious money in fake guns and gear.

    Sorry about the lack of pictures. I didn't apply for press credentials so my camera has stayed in its bag.

    Thanks. I don't have any specific requests, but news on any surprises or something that strikes you as extra cool would be nice.

    Well, nothing really extra cool. I spent most of today in meetings but I did get to go back and spend some more time at some boths. I've been working up a design for a custom knife and so I spent a lot of my afternoon looking at knives.

    Glocks 21SF was supposted to be a big deal but it's really just a 21 with some minor tweeks. The ambi mag release is the most visible change.

    Thanks. I at least was sure the 21 SF was even real. Did you get a chance to handle it at all? Was the difference really that much?
