Another SHOT Show has come and gone and my aching feet are testament to it getting bigger and bigger. This year we took the huge step of hiring someone to cover Flashlights. There is so much new in this area that it is impossible to do the whole thing. Please keep those donations coming in; it helps make this possible. I also would like to thank the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas who generously provided rooms for our correspondents covering the show. Without their support, we could never have afforded to do this.
This SHOT Show Report is split into into three sections: Knives (including multi-purpose tools), Lights (including flashlights and headlamps) and Gear (covering everything except knives and lights), the latter not yet completed. Click on the link below to get to the section, or the links on the bottom of each of the section pages.
Please note that due to unexpected duties involving the development of new standards for emergency beacons that are a result of our findings last year of problems in this area, necessitating a trip to Washington, D.C. right after SHOT Show and now to London for a week, time to compile the Knives portion of this report has been limited. I do hope to add more companies and their wares when I get back. Thanks for your understanding.
Assembling this SHOT Show Report is a major undertaking. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Equipped To Survive Foundation if you find this report to be of value to you. The Equipped To Survive Foundation is a tax-exempt non-profit corporation that supports the continued operation and expansion of Equipped To Survive and which allows me to attend shows such as this and report to you on the latest and greatest gear. In many cases Equipped To Survive has been first by months to publicize new and exciting survival and preparedness gear. Again, donations are fully tax-deductible.
