SHOT Show stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show, it is held at the Sands Convention Center at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas NV, USA. It is a private INDUSTRY ONLY show. As media, we are invited to come out and see all the new firearms in the Industry so we may bring you the viewer new content. This video is from Industry Day, also known as Media Day. This is our “first day” where we get to shoot all different firearms, ammo, accessories, etc. It is a really fun day to try many different types of firearms from skeet shooting to full auto. Tomorrow starts the first official day of the trade show.
The #WindhamProject is a Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 AR which is chambered in 5.56, .300BLK, 7.62x39mm, 9mm and .22lr. We have grabbed some of the most awesome parts of the gun industry to help us better customize this rifle and show you how you can turn this rifle from something awesome to something EPIC and drool worthy at the range.

The awesome folks at WMD Guns sent us out their new BCG which is designed to have a harder and smoother wear surface. The NiBXBCG0001 is a full auto BCG which in my opinion is a must if you like to run your guns dirty like the GEARS Crew does.
Be sure to check them out and stay tuned for the full review of the RMCS-4 known as the #WindhamProject.

Today we are looking at the CMMG AKS13 SBN with pinned Krink muzzle device. We have a full review coming up on this gun in the near future. We are also reviewing it alongside a few other 7.62x39mm rifles that use the AK style magazine such as the:
RAS47 MOE AK from Century Arms
Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 Multicaliber AR (#Windhamproject)
IWI US Galil Ace.
Have you shot this gun? What is your take on the gun?
Atticus and Tanner out at the range for the first impressions and shooting of the Zenith Firearms Z5K Pistol. This is an H&K MP5K clone chambered in 9mm.
This gun is made in Turkey by MKE and Imported through Zenith Firearms.
Stay Tuned for the review coming later this year.
Today we get a first look at the Desert Eagle pistol from Magnum Research and do a quick field strip of the gun.
Yesterday we looked at the XPRODUCTS X25S for Video Tuesday which sent me back to when we had first become friends with James and the awesome Team over at XPRODUCTS.
As you can see below we have been working with them since before they dropped the S in XS-Products and I stand by my first review of the XPRODUCTS X-15. “Size: I live in the great state of Texas where I am not limited on how many rounds I can have in my magazine. I own 30 round magazines and up, which can be a problem if you are sighting your rifle in on a lead sled but I found that the X-15 works great for that and I don’t have to change mags if 10 rounds wasn’t enough or if you are sighting in a number of ARs.”
After that review came out, someone laughed at me for the sighting in comment, saying if you need 50 rounds to sight in a rifle you are the problem. Lets face it, how many of us have sighted in our rifle and said “hey, I have shot my 10 rounds to get sighted in now I don’t want to shoot anymore”? Once the rifle is sighted in, thats when the real fun starts. So why wouldn’t you loaded up a full 50 round drum for the “after party”?
What is your take on the over 30 round mags on the market?
Sometimes you just need a big knife and tactical vest. This is one of those times. Like I said, I do really like the gear. However, as someone who was never military or a three gun shooter, I don’t really care all that much to wear MOLLE, unless I have a need for it. This vest has been coming in real handy while reviewing the #WindhamProject. We are firing thousands of rounds through this rifle. The MOLLE vest makes it easier to keep mags closer for speedier reload time.
Something I failed to mention about this vest, is that is it mainly made with a mesh body. That makes this vest breathable. This is nice in the Texas sun when you are wearing it for hours on end.
I also keep my Leatherman MUT on my vest, which you can see on the left hand side of the screen when looking at the vest.

CMMG was kind enough to send us out the conversion kit to test along side the #WindhamProject. We wanted to bring the caliber count up from the stock 4 calibers of 5.56NATO,7.62x39mm,9mm and .300BLK to a fifth caliber with the .22lr conversion kit.

Versions of the Kit
CMMG makes a few versions of this kit to handle the left handed rifles.
Just swap this drop in conversion with your bolt carrier group and you will be ready to shoot .22LR. Ships with 25rd 22LR magazine. All Stainless Steel Construction, includes a 25rd Magazine.

I think this is an awesome training aid. Trying to introduce people who have a fear of guns and mainly a fear of the AR platform can be at times difficult. This can be due to the noise or the simple fear of recoil hurting them.
I like being able to start someone off with a .22lr and getting them comfortable using one gun with one set of controls and then being able to graduate them to the .223/5.56 calibers. In other words, you can train on the gun that you will graduate to. This makes you comfortable with all the different parts of the gun that you will shoot long term. This is a great way to watch people get over their fear and really start to enjoy the sport.
I have to say, as an owner of over 15 different coolers, this is my best cooler to date.
The Roadie 20 is great for range days or car trips. This Yeti is for when you don’t need to keep all your food and drinks together for a month long safari. The Yeti Roadie 20 is small, but when you are carrying out as much gear for a range day as I do, you don’t want a monster ice chest taking up space. In our Texas heat, you just want something that will keep your drinks COLD! This fits the bill.
We can fill this Yeti with 16 bottles of water and 10 pounds of ice for a day trip.

Atticus James is traveling in India for the month of February. You can follow his adventures at AtticusJames.com. In the meantime, he has left all of the photos from Shot Show 2016 for those of us left behind to post for him. (This would explain any issues with photos being mislabeled.
