Sometimes the SHOT Show looks more like Fashion Week. Despite all the Coyote Tan and Olive Drab clothes that all the press guys, factory reps and other ‘operators’ were wearing at Media Day At The Range, ‘tacticool’ is on its way out. On its way in: bold colors and sporty graphics borrowed from Nike and Adidas . . .
The 2013 season of shooting and range fashion accessories is designed to make it much easier to hide your iron in plain sight. This Blackhawk! ‘Diversion’ gun case will hold a collapsed AR or a folded AK, but your fellow apartment-dwellers will think you’re off to the tennis or squash courts.
Their blue range bag has dual top strap handles and zippered end compartments, and is carefully designed to imply ‘sweaty gym shorts’ instead of ‘SHTF.’ Another compartmented bug-out bag (not pictured) is a dead ringer for a snowboarder’s backpack.
There are more of us (People of the Gun) than ever these days, but any day is a good day to be discreet.
