SHOT Show 2017 Part Two

Part two of SHOT followed a late night of cigars whiskey and bourbon... to say that motivation was lacking this morning would be the understatement of the century. None the less we marched on in the name of providing new and exciting coverage!   Products of note: Velocity Systems / Mayflower chest rig retro kit: Velocity systems and Mayflower debuted a retro upgrade kit for guys with existing chest rigs looking to add hard plates to their kit without buying a full PC. The kit includes a plate sleeve that slides into the existing main pocket of the chest rig. The chest then attaches using existing buckles to a full back panel with an integral plate pocket and hydro pouch. The back panel is full molle and has integral shoulder straps.   This is a very promising option for anyone with a chest rig that needs the ability to up armor. Blue Force Gear hypalon pocket holster: BFG has taken the pocket holster from a questionable idea to a practical solution for carry in non-permissive environments.

SHOT Show 2017 Part One

SHOT show 2017 kicked off like every other show I've attended...  chaos thinly disguised as enthusiasm in multicam. Notable products part one: BE Meyers MAWL: Got hands on with the MAWL for the first time. It's all it's been made out to be and more. The IR designator/illuminator market just got turned on its head and the future is very clearly a departure from the traditional rail mounted box. BFG MARCO (aka tactical pez dispenser): The crew at BFG, thanks to help from our very own Roland and Raven concealment, have made a dispenser for chemlites that no one knew they needed until they saw it.  The concept is simply a box that holds 30+ 2" chemlites with a footprint smaller than an M4 30 rounder.  The design incorporates mounting holes that will allow attachment to just about any system you're currently using.  The beauty of the MARCO is that in the space of 4 standard chemlites you can now carry enough to handle clearing an industrial complex. Nightops tactical DTNVG: Nightops tactical is providing a dual tube solution that incorporates the ability to lift an individual tube out of your line of sight without folding the entire unit up.
