Shhh! I know, it has a pistol grip. Don’t tell anyone, OK? Weatherby finally officially launched its WBY-X line of shotguns and rifles for the younger set just before the SHOT Show. Unfortunately, that fact seemed to get lost in the pre-Vegas deluge of press releases and puffery. They’re obviously aiming the WBY-X stuff squarely a the gun culture 2.0 crowd. Those skulls were my first tipoff. Kids these days! What are you gonna do? Anyway, if the accoutrements they’ve added to appeal to shooters who have spent more time in front of an X-Box than out in the field aren’t, you know, outlawed any time soon, Weatherby may have something here. The only bummer: around here, the weather be bad. As in chill winds and drifting piles of white global warming residue. But I’ll get the Black Reaper out and give her a whirl the first time there’s a break in the climate change. At least that’s the plan. Full-on review to follow thereafter. A few more snaps after the jump . . .
