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 quick 5 minute run thru of what we saw today. Includes a quick interview with Dead Air Armaments. I heard that if we wanted to see every booth in this show we could only spend one minute 18 seconds in a booth. Bad news guys! We aren’t going to see every booth. But trust me when I say that we are spending time with the good guys. Gotta go, lots to see……….
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.
Today we are checking out the Smith & Wesson M&P45 Shield and the Model 586 6” barrel chambered in .357 Magnum. We are very excited to get these awesome pistols to the range for some serious range time before we start to review the firearms.
Today I stumbled across these photos that are just now going viral, What you’re missing….
Here is a collection of what we saw in the handgun arena at the show. We saw such a variety in sizes, colors and designs that we can only show you a few of the best of the photos of the show.
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.

The BCM Europearms PM4 Storm semi-automatic carbine is designed in Italy and has its roots based in the Spectre M4 which was developed by the Italian company SITES in 1980s. This firearm was designed by the same people who designed the Spectre M4 (seen below).
SITES (Società Italiana Tecnologie Speciali S.p.A.) Spectre M4
The BCM Europearms PM4 Storm was designed for the civilian and security markets. The availability outside of Italy is unclear to Gearsofguns.com at this time.
The platform does not have a manual safety since the firearm uses its own proprietary SA/DA trigger group. The first trigger pull will always be double action only and each subsequent trigger pull will be single action similar to that of a revolvers SA/DA trigger.
MSRP for the pistol is 1200 euro and 1400 euro for the carbine.
Our very own Caleb had a birthday yesterday and as a gift someone got this young man a Nagant revolver and for those of you are unfamiliar with this pistol it was designed to allow the shooter to use a suppressor.
He will have a write up on this gun at a later point to explain how this all works and why a standard revolver doesn’t work suppressed.
Caleb is working on getting his threaded so we can get our hands on some suppressors to test out.
