    Best of Shot Show 2018?

    What did people see who attended that they were really impressed by?

    Game changers? Must have items? Incremental improvements still worth mention?

    There's a thread in GD, but it deteriorated to old guys reminiscing by page 3 or 4. That probably speaks volumes about the show.

    Smile

    I was able to go to industry day for the first time and a few things stood out to me:

    Tavor shotgun should be a huge winner.
    Geissele Rem 700 triggers are great, especially the single stage. Their mk16 handguard is amazing and I hope and pray it becomes available separately.
    The new OSS suppressors are heads and shoulders better than previous gens and are imo the nicest suppressor I was able to shoot at industry day.
    The Archon Type B pistols are great and hopefully meet the hype.
    The integrally suppressed AK has promise but was heavy and had bad gas blowback.
    Everyone has a 6.5 creedmoor now.
    The brownells retro rifles are a huge hit with everyone who saw them.

    At Shot there wasnít a ton on new things, but hereís a few highlights
    I am impressed by LMTís ambi lowers and mlok hanguards, as well as their new Pdw style stock that isnít stupid like everyone elseís.
    The nightforce 1-8x should be a winner, itís smaller and lighter than I expected.
    Bushnell has upped their game across the board, they have some very impressive optics.
    Ets is coming out with mp5 mags which Iím excited for.
    Oh and KAC is offering SR25 uppers in 6.5cm.
    I paint spaceship parts.

    Geissele 700 trigger was amazing. I like the two stage version.

    They're bring back the 44 Automag, the sexiest "Super Pistol" ever made. The machine work is exquisite. Big Thunder lives!

    Brownell's retro ARs are very cool.

    Sig 365. A ten shot 9mm no bigger than a Glock 43. 12 shot extended mags optional. The most size efficient handgun in its category.

    Large selection of night vision & thermal imaging optics looking better than ever.

    Getting to meet some terrific people.

    The KAC LAMG was pretty smooth shooting.

    Shot an Ultimax 100 several times 15+ years ago ago ( former employer had one )

    So hard to compare exactly, but IIRC they had a man sized silhuette target at 100, really easy to keep it on that off hand.

    Another name to keep in mind, True Velocity

    Is that how they had it set up? The rear sights seem too far back? Nice little concept.

    This was my first SHOTSHOW. Overwhelmed. Great experience, but literally, all work for 4 days, and walking and walking.

    Two biggest observations:

    1) .224 Valkyire. Everywhere. I did not know I needed one until I got to SHOT and every gun manufacturer wanted to talk about it.
    2) Year of the short-dot. Some really great short range scopes: 1-4x, 1-6x, 1-8x, etc. The good scope makers had them on display, and some moderately priced as well. I liked what I saw.

    Here is a few blog entries, if anyone reads that sort of stuff. For me, these were my first blogs, so I had fun.

    Did anyone happen to play with the 10mm Noveske PDW? I only saw one video mention it, and a few websites, but nothing notable. I have a Q Honey Badger in NFA jail, so the stock is familiar, and I love PCC's. I was just wondering what others thought of it. It is supposed to be released by end of Q1.

    I like it a lot. I've been checking Noveske's site daily so I can order as soon as it populates
