Shot Show 2016 Day Two Round Up

Day Two Round Up

See the top five favs that range from a gun that breaks down into a back pack to a snuf can holder for your rifle?

We also saw ELD, extreme low drag rounds.  And of course what every man needs in his closet is a hanger that will support up to 125 pounds!

Shot Show 2016 has a bit of everything and we are looking forward to discovering more in day 3.  Stay tuned for more coverage!


Poll: Tech in Shooting


I have noticed as I go to the range lately, I carry out about 75 pounds of gear. This doesn’t even include my guns and their respective cases.

Range Tech in the Range Bag

While a lot of what I carry to the range is related to reviews and just normal work equipment, I have noticed that over the past few years my distance range tech as increased and yet my range distance hasn’t.

I have observed more people with lasers and lights and camera mounts on their $700 M&P-15. I have asked a few why they have this mounted at all times and they tell me that they just need it. Mind you this is not your SWAT officers or Texas National Guard, I am talking to, but that guy who has been in the semi-auto rifle game for 2 years.

Constant Evolution

Like most every other industry, we are subject to constant evolution with the tech world. I carry out my electronic spotting scope for any shots over 25yds. I wear electronic ear muffs to help me hear and still mute the shooting. I use laser trainers at home to help me with my rifle and pistol skill. Tech is replacing the old school shooting world which is helping us with our shooting skills.

Old School

I look back to my grandfather’s era of hunting and shooting and how the trail cameras were the tracks you saw on the ground, the e-spotting scopes were binoculars and monocular spotting scopes, the laser trainers were tin cans on a fence.

It is interesting to me, to see the distance shooters at my local range who are much older and the worries they have are about the clarity of their glass on their high end scope and the twist rates of their bolt action rifles. Then I see the younger shooters looking for every piece of tech they can get their hands on to make them the next top shot.


Personally, I love the tech. Even with how tech is changing and making some interesting splashes in the gun industry. Some tech is even controversial such as the Barrett Optical Ranging System (BORS) or the Tracking point systems giving shooter an easier time making the right calculations to hit their target out at 1000+ yards.

Shooting World has Room for All

Change can be scary to some people. All I know is that you can adapt to the new tech in shooting or not. Old school and new school, both have their amazing shooters who defy what we think is possible.



Revenge of the mug? I don’t know.



For those of you who thought $250 was a little much for a mug but you still thought “needed” one for your “armory”… They are now manufacturing them out of polymers to reduce the cost.

If someone wanted to send us one we wouldn’t mind doing a range review on it.

If you missed out on the first installment of this mug you can read about it HERE

OPMOD Battle Mug

Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling like your life is needing to be more tactical?
Do you ever sit in your office wishing you could be playing with all the cool new picatinny rail attachments?
Do you ever wish you could be practicing acquiring targets with your new holographic sights while you are drink your morning coffee?
Does your life seem boring when you aren’t out putting rounds down range on target?
Do you ever wish during off season that you could be out hunting that 12 point buck you have stuffed hanging on your wall?
Are you the kind of person who imagines  that you are loading a magazine when you are changing the batteries in your remote?
Do the Monday blues get you down after a great 3-gun event weekend?
Do you ever wish you could be looking through your scope at  the deer or other game on TV?
Do you wish you had more light when you are drinking your coffee while reading the newspaper?
Do you or your loved one ever get up at night and need a flashlight to get to the bathroom?
Do you ever imagine you are holding your pistol while watering the lawn with your garden hose?

If you answered yes to any of these questions we have the coffee (or beer) mug for you!



The OPMOD Battle Mug is like no other mug you’ve seen!

This massive mountain of a mug combines three Mil-Spec 1913 scope rails and a block ofimage CNC-machined 6061 T6 billet aluminum with the capacity to hold a sizable 24 ounces of your favorite frothy beverage.

The OPMOD Battle Mug is built to military specs – the rails are real military-specification rails, the handle is an actual AR-15 carry handle mounted to one of the rails, and the body is serious hard-core metal, machined out of a 13.5-pound solid block of aluminum.

You can load up the OP-MOD Battle Mug just like you would your trusty AR – pile on a scope, a laser sight, holo sight, or any other tactical gear you want. With its Mil-Spec Type III anodized finish and a crenelated base, the OP MOD Battle Mug is just as good for fending off foes as kicking back with a beer – though we recommend the latter.

Each one is custom-engraved with its own unique serial number and includes a removable AR15 carry handle. Last but not definitely least – the OPMOD Battle Mug is proudly made in the USA!

ENDO Tactical Glock AR Stock Adapter

ENDO Tactical Glock AR Stock Adapter


The ENDO Tactical Glock AR-15 Stock Adapter is just what it says it is an adapter for attaching AR-15 stocks to your Glock pistols.

The stock helps to reduce  the muzzle climb helping to maintain on target for faster follow-up shots.

While reading about this product we found that by attaching this stock you will have to register the weapon as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) with the BATFE ($200 tax stamp).

When you buy this it only comes with the adapter (pictured below)  and you will still need to purchase Buffer tube, Shoulder stock, receiver plate and Castle nut.

This will work with the GEN 4 Glock with slight modifications.

The buffer spring and the buffer weight inside the buffer tube is not needed to use the stock.

Model TSA-G compatible with Glock models: G17, G20, G21, G22, G24, G31, G34, G35, G37, and G18 (yes the compensated (C), long (L), or Rough Textured Frame (RTF) version Glock be used with the tactical stock adapter because the frames are the same size).

Using this stock with a G18 (Fully automatic 9mm Glock) would allow the shooter to better manage the pistol in full auto.

Welrod silenced pistol

Welrod silenced pistol


Action: Single Action manually operated bolt
Caliber: .32 ACP(Top) and 9×19 Luger (Bottom)
Weight unloaded: 2.4lbs – 3.3lbs
Overall Length: 12” (310mm) – 14” (360mm)
Magazine capacity: 6-8 rounds
Safety: A simple automated grip safety is provided at the rear of the magazine housing / grip base.

(Bolt open and magazine removed)

This pistol was designed as a bolt action to limit the noise made by the action.

The suppressor slows the supersonic 9mm round down to subsonic to reduce the noise, by doing this it dropped the pistols max effective range down to 75ft. 

The detachable single stack box magazine was wrapped in rubber and used as the pistols grip

The sound suppression was no more than 10-15 rounds, after which the shooter would have to remove and replace the baffles in the weapon. This was due to the rubber washers used in the suppressor would quickly deteriorate after 10- 15 shots making the sound suppression be less effective.

Mateba Autorevolver

Mateba Autorevolver


Designer: Emilio Ghisoni
Designed: 1997
Weight: 2.96 lb. (1.35 kg)
Length: 275 mm (10.83 in)
Barrel length: 152 mm (6 in)
Cartridge: .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .454 Casull
Action: Recoil operated semi-automatic revolver
Cylinder: 6-Rounds

This weapon is an Italian made Semi-Auto revolver. This is not a double action pistol which the trigger pull causes the actions of re-cocking the weapon, turn the cylinder and fire the pistol.

The just like a normal semi auto pistol is causing the actions to happen from the spent gas moving the cylinder forward and cocking the weapon allowing for a much lighter trigger pull.
