Atticus takes a detailed look at the Magpump AR 15 Magazine Speed Loader from MITUSA. Stay tuned for an updated review after we put several thousand rounds through this mag loader.
Here is a collection of the photos from the floor. These photos are just a few of the best photos taken. They are meant to show the variety of what is to be seen at Shot Show and are not necessarily a reflection of our editorial support. Our accessory collection includes companies that manufacture ammo, scopes, triggers, mags, speed loaders, re-loaders, stocks, slides and bi-pods. Make sure you stay til the end. Leopold has put together some really awesome found gun stories. We snapped a few photos of the guns and the stories to share with you guys. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

The LOST STORIES
We just love these lost gun stories by Leopold. They tell the stories of how long these scopes and guns were lost under the worst conditions. They are a testament to the quality of the products.
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. Apologies in advance if this happens).
This was my first SHOT Show. I have to tell you this was an unbelievable experience. I have been to a number of different trade shows in Las Vegas, but this one beat them all.
One of the first things I noticed is that even with the HUGE crowds for the most part people were very polite to each other. One could sit down at lunch and strike up a conversation with total strangers and everyone expressed a genuine interested in what everyone did, from exhibitors to gun store owners to editors of major publications.
I decided at this show that I wanted to get into reloading even though I hadn’t ever done it before. I struck up a conversation with the editor of major hunting and fishing publication and I asked him about reloaders at the show. I asked him if becoming a reloader would really save me money and his comment was yes and no. He said yes because my per round cost would go down, but I would end up shooting a lot more (which by the way would not be a bad thing). He steered me toward a couple of different brands because of his personal experience with each of them. The first he recommended was RCBS because he said this was what he used when he started reloading; it is a good quality,durable and relatively user friendly. I went over and talked to Bill, one of their warranty technicians and was very pleasantly surprised to find a company at this type of show to spend the time to talk and explain the appropriate kit to get for a beginner. He didn’t try to talk me into a multi stage press or any accessories that I didn’t need to start out.
I plan on getting and trying out a couple of different brands of reloaders and will be posting reviews to let you know my beginner impressions.
