Maxpedition’s New Products: SHOT Show 2017

This year at SHOT Show, Tim Tang, President of Maxpedition, gave us a tour of some of their new products. Naturally, we focused on their various bags and accessories that have CCW applications and work well at the shooting range . . . Backpacks, messenger bags, laptop bags, cross-body shoulder bags, wallets, holsters, and more… […]

Grand Power K22: SHOT Show 2017

Speaking of underrated guns, Slovakia’s Grand Power — at least in the U.S. of A. — is one seriously underrated brand. Don’t fret if you aren’t familiar; TTAG will be bringing you a few Grand Power reviews soon. Though they make pistols in 9mm, .40, .45, and even 10mm, I’m perhaps most excited to test […]

CMC Triggers GLOCK Trigger: SHOT Show 2017

CMC Triggers has been selling very nice, drop-in AR-15 triggers for many years. Just last year they branched out into AK-47 triggers and, in what was certainly a surprise to me, this year at SHOT Show they were showing off a replacement GLOCK trigger. It still sports the unique CMC flat trigger face with hooked bottom. […]

Beretta Off Shot Hearing Protection: SHOT Show 2017

This year at SHOT Show we got a sneak peek at Beretta‘s new “Off Shot” hearing protection line. Included in the lineup is active electronic ear pro with bluetooth connectivity, ambient sound amplification, a 32 dB NRR, and impressive [rechargeable] battery life. Oh, and that’s all jammed into a lightweight, in-ear earbud design. It ain’t cheap, but […]

Polymer 80’s 80% Pistol Lowers: SHOT Show 2017

Polymer 80 specializes in 80% receivers made from, you guessed it, polymer. Since they’re a maximum of 80% completed, they aren’t considered a firearm by the Powers That Be; these paperweights can ship straight to your door sans paperwork. The end user can then finish the simple machining steps necessary to turn them into functional receivers. […]

Nighthawk Custom at SHOT Show 2017

Nighthawk Custom is guaranteed to come up in any discussion of where one can find the best 1911 available. A quick stroll through their SHOT Show booth this year left no doubts as to why. I tried to snap photos of many of the standouts, but, unfortunately, the trade show floor lighting in the area […]

Liberty Suppressors Goliath and Sovereign at SHOT Show 2017

John from Liberty Suppressors gave us the walk-through on their two newest cans, the Goliath and the Sovereign, at SHOT Show this year. I think they’re both destined to be good sellers for the company. In fact, I’m already angling at a Goliath purchase myself. The Sovereign is a simple, short, lightweight, titanium suppressor made […]

New From Hardened Arms: LumaShark Integrated Illumination Handguard

Hardened Arms says “The LumaShark is an Illuminated, weaponized, 12″ free float handguard whose patented features have eliminated the need for bulky bolt on flashlights on the AR Platform.” While I’m not convinced they’re truly eliminated the bulk, they certainly have integrated interchangeable flashlights/lasers into an AR handguard. We checked ’em out in the NEXT […]
