The advanced lens coating and electronic LED combination produce a crisp red dot for target contrast regardless of lighting conditions.

The BMR is powered by a side-loading CR1632 battery and features positive clicks adjustment at 1 MOA per click.

It reportedly offers comfort, speed, and concealability with compact autos and small-frame revolvers. Constructed of premium steerhide, the Hornet uses a tunnel-style belt loop mated with a belt slot, resulting in excellent stability on the belt.

Comp-Tac CT3 Level III Duty Holster

Comp-Tac CT3 Level III Holster
The Comp-Tac CT3 is a Level 3 holster that uses friction, an ejection port lock, and a hood that must be released before the firearm can be drawn. The CT3 is designed with the intent that a master grip is achieved before fully withdrawing the weapon. This, according to the company, combined with the autolocking ejection port lock and the intuitive self-activated hood system makes this one of the fastest Level 3 holsters available on the market today. This holster is available for fits with lights and in fits without lights.

Comp-Tac Sport-Tac Holster

Comp-Tac Sport-Tac holster
The Sport-TAC Holster is a hybrid, inside-the-waistband holster designed to comfortably carry a 4” handgun at the 4-5 o’clock position. The Sport-TAC features a 600D interlock padded backing that provides cushion and flexibility for extreme comfort, while the Kydex® shell holds your handgun securely with adjustable retention. The backing uses low-density foam for comfort and high-density foam for structure, molded with channels for ventilation. The Kydex® shell minimizes the collapse of the holster after draw, improving the ease of reholster when compared to all-leather or all-nylon IWB holsters. The holster is tuckable, as well as cant- and ride height-adjustable.

Galco IWB Holsters for S&W SCX Pistol

Galco IWB Holsters for S&W CSX Pistol

It’s adjustable for cant and angle, from butt-forward to neutral to crossdraw. The Tuck-N-Go 2.0 is supplied with two types of tuckable clips. The first is the UniClip, designed to go over the belt, but which also works well without a belt. The second is the Ultimate Stealth clip with hook, which fits on the trouser waistband, under or behind a belt with just the clip showing. The Stow-N-Go’s open top provides a fast draw, while the reinforced mouth makes for a smooth return to the holster after the gun’s been drawn. The sturdy nylon belt clip attaches securely yet offers quick and easy on-off capability. Vertical orientation gives the option of strongside or appendix carry versatility to meet the needs of a broad range of gun carriers.

Comp-Tac Dual Carry Holster (DCH)

Comp-Tac Dual Carry Holster
The Dual Concealment Holster, or the “DCH”, is the best solution for users who need versatility in their carry methods, according to Comp-Tac. This holster offers both IWB (Inside-the-Waistband) and OWB (Outside-the-Waistband) options for wear.

Ammunition

Here are some of the offerings of new ammunition out of SHOT Show 2022.

Federal 30 Super Carry

Federal Premium 30 Super Carry
The new 30 Super Carry cartridge provides the power of the 9mm Luger with comparable felt recoil, according to Federal. The .312-inch diameter projectile carries the same energy as 9mm Luger at the muzzle, with better ballistics than 380 Auto. In addition, it could be chambered in smaller, easier to conceal handguns, once gun manufacturers start to offer guns designed and built specifically for this cartridge. With a higher capacity and smaller frame size than the 9mm but with similar muzzle blast, recoil, and terminal performance, 30 Super Carry may offer a decided advantage.

APEX Ammunition TSS Shotshells

APEX Ammunition TSS Shotshells
APEX pioneered the commercial use of 18.1 g/cc density TSS in 2017, and today offers a comprehensive line of shotshells for Waterfowl, Upland, Predator, and Deer hunting, in addition to its renowned Turkey TSS loads.

HEVI-Shot HEVI-Hammer Bismuth-Steel Dove Loads

 

Hevi Hammer Dove new ammunition
New HEVI-Hammer loads are superior nontoxic shotshells for areas where lead is prohibited or for the environmentally conscious hunter.  According to HEVI-Shot, the bismuth-enhanced steel loads provide hunters with an option that had more velocity and more power than just standard steel shot yet is the same size as steel respectively. Because HEVI-Hammer pellets feature a layer of 9.6 g/cc Bismuth, hunters can generally shoot one shot size smaller than steel for the same lethality, but with a much higher pellet count for increased probability of contact.[Photo courtesy of Hevi-Shot]
