Tactical Walls has introduced an EDC tray. While it’s not a concealment, it is quite handy.

GAOS 18 – M&P Shield

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Like I said in the intro, this is a trade show and major manufacturers are in hand, exhibiting their consumer products. Smith & Wesson has their new M&P 380 Shield EZ pistol with its grip safety.


They’ve got the full range but another model I wanted to point out is the M&P 9 Shield 2.0 with integrated Crimson Trace green or red laser.


GAOS 18 –

Thursday, February 8th, 2018


One of the best ways to support the non-profit is to buy some swag. Every year, they come up with a new, innovative medallion and this year is no disappointment.


The reverse has a Lakota Sioux inscription which translates to, “shoot the enemy in the face.” Additionally, on either side, the head dress bears the Army and Marine Corps Sniper symbols.

This thing has got some heft to it and features a channel down the middle to run a cord through it.

Make sure you stop by if you’re at the show and pick something up.

2018 Great American Outdoor Show

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

I made it once again to the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Presented by the National Rifle Association, this 9-day Show is part Trade Show and part Gun Show. Vendors may sell direct to customers (except firearms) so you’ll see lots of accessories heading out the door at the end of each day. I’m told, GAOS gets more traffic than SHOT Show and the NRA Annual Meeting combined.
