As I write this we are mere hours away from the opening of the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoors Tradeshow, sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and known to most people as SHOT. For those not familiar with SHOT, it is the world's largest tradeshow for military, law enforcement, hunting, shooting and general outdoors products. It features new items from manufacturers big and small, and is my absolute favorite time of year!
This year, our own Multitool Meg will be providing coverage from the show floor, first hand and live, and you can follow it all right here on our own forum. We have started an Events Index to help you find all the updates you need and want from SHOT 2020.
Some other links you may want to keep an eye on are our various social media accounts, so like, follow and share all of our cool stuff at these links:
That's about it for now- I suggest checking back often as we will be updating all of the above as it happens.
For those that don't know, the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoors Tradeshow (SHOT) sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is the largest industry tradeshow in the world for the outdoors community, and it is an event on par with the Superbowl and World Cup rolled into one for the folks that like to get dirty and smell the fresh air.
This year we sent our correspondent Kampfer to poke around SHOT and report back to us on what was new and noteworthy. Here's a list of what he came up with:
As we get closer and closer to SHOT we are starting to get more and more info on what kinds of things we are likely to see from each of the big manufacturers. This year the folks at BladeHQ are giving us our first looks at what Leatherman is releasing, something the folks at Leatherman were't happy about when I announced their new tools before they did a few years ago during the Sidekick and Wingman debut.
Just announced, the new Maxpedition Entity series of Non-Tactical/Tactical (NTT) bags designed to look unassuming, yet afford the organiazional options needed for covert operators. Yup, insert rolling eye smiley here. The marketing is over the top (as usual), but the reality of having a non-ninja type bag but with all of the organizational possibilities we are used to in miilitary style gear would probably come in handy to those of us that don't commute to and from war zones.
