2016 SHOT Show Day One: Gunblast.com
Jeff Quinn does a good job of covering some of the new product introductions at the SHOT Show. He came across a number of things I wish I had seen. Given the size of the the SHOT Show, it is no wonder I missed them this year.
For example, the Italian gun maker Pedersoli is now making a .45 Colt/.410 "pistol" modeled on the old Ithaca Auto and Burglar shotgun. For those who don't know the history of the Auto and Burglar, it was a short barrel shotgun with a pistol grip in 20 gauge. It was made from 1921 until the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934.
Another interesting find was the new 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum cartridge. This was the first new cartridge introduction by Weatherby in the last 17 years.
