2020 shot show suppressors

The last couple of years have been hard on suppressor makers. Between the unwarranted excitement over the Hearing Protection Act (HPA), and the general slowdown of the firearms industry due to the election of the Trump-ster, sales have slowed. It didn’t help that the number of examiners in the ATF office devoted to form approval was kept at the same skeleton-crew size, but that didn’t prevent suppressor makers from forging ahead. As I have in the past, I will tell you about the new cans I saw, in the order I saw them, so don’t go assigning any significance to the sequence. SIG (SigSauer.com) Last year’s hot news, the modular pistol suppressors, the 9mm and .45 that SIG unveiled, will soon be available. They were swamped with military and LE orders, and those…

2020 shot show triggers

Back when I was a young boy religiously perusing gun magazines, the number of aftermarket triggers/trigger systems available for rifles or pistols was very, very low. If you wanted an improved trigger pull (and trust me, you did, the average factory trigger pull in those days was horrible compared to today’s offerings) often your only recourse was to send your firearm off to a gunsmith. That is no longer the case. No matter what type of firearm you like to shoot, chances are somebody is making an upgraded bang switch for it, and many of them were on display at the 2020 SHOT Show. A caveat — the Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show is so large that you could spend all four days just walking the aisles and while you might be…

a tale of gun-rights groups activism in virginia: nra, vcdl & goa

It would be an understatement to call the results of the November 5, 2019 elections in the state of Virginia surprising. While mostly a blue state at the federal level of politics the story was very different in the composition with its state legislators. Now, the law-abiding citizens are fighting an uphill battle to protect their 2nd Amendment rights from an emboldened opposition. How did both chambers of the legislature flip to being controlled by the same party as the governor? What role did pro 2nd Amendment advocacy groups play in this outcome, especially the National Rifle Association (NRA) and are they going to be effective at preventing repressive laws from being past? If one was to listen to the mainstream media outlets it sounds like its simply just a shift…

2020 show shot interesting gear and muzzle devices:

The SHOT show begins with a couple of days of range time, an opportunity to get hot or cold, dusty or damp, depending on the weather. In 2020, it was dusty and cold. SIG (Sigsauer.com) SIG showed off their new .338 machine gun, which a select few of us got to blast off ten rounds each through. (Hey, at $10 a shot 9 or more, only SIG really knows for sure.) I was just glad they didn’t make us pony up some cash for the fun. A much more economical practice is found with the SIG M17/18 airsoft, which you can shoot in your own basement for pennies per magazine-full. It is an addition to the SIG airsoft line of their products. You could do a whole lot of wintertime indoor practice, with…
