[SHOT 2016] Day 2 round up!

SHOT 2016 Day 2 has come to an end. Below are some pictures I took during Day 2 of SHOT show.


Heckler and Koch had the most efficient booth layout. There were a lot of people, but the booth did not feel cluttered.


SAGE Ordnance Systems Group had a chassis for the SKS.


Colt Canada Rifles. They have the Monolithic Modular Upper Receivers. I talked to the Colt Representative. They tested M-LOK and Keymod. They said M-LOK was better and withstood rip tests.


Jason Falla is an absolute badass. Very nice individual. He has a carbine with Knights Armament. He was smiling and jovial the whole time we talked then got his game face on for picture time.


Vortex premiered their new Vortex RAZOR HD AMG. These scopes are 100% made in the United States. Vortex has a really nice booth and the reps were all very friendly.


Larry Vickers at the Blue Force Gear booth. Very nice guy. Larry has worked extremely hard to get where he is at in life. SHOT shows are exhausting.

  • Wow, if that Sage SKS chassis works on my SKS-M, I think I’ve got my new build idea!

      Seriously! Those Colts look very nice!

      • Jay

        Yep. clean and efficient. Can’t wait to try one.

    • Twilight sparkle

      If you could put a scout scope on it that would make a cool DMR

  • Ryan Snow

    Hope they start selling Canadian colts in USA

    Any chance to talk to hk about the vp9sk?

  • mastablasta

    Nice photos!

  • Jeff S

    I have seen zero HK coverage from this year’s show… Do they have anything new?

  • Dale Holt

    I don’t think that’s a Troy Pdw stock. I bet the actual vendor would like credit.

  • Evan

    I like the PDW stock. Unfortunately, where I live, the CLEO won’t sign off on NFA items, and putting a PDW stock on a rifle with a 16″ barrel would just
