9×18 Makarov Glock 42?

The guys at Lone Wolf have come out with a conversion barrel that will allow you to shoot 9×18 Makarov out of a Glock 42! I had dismissed the Glock 42 since it shoots .380 but now that it can shoot 9×18 Makarov I am intrigued. The photo above a little misleading as it shows a threaded barrel but on their website they only have a stock length barrel. I am sure in due time they will have a threaded version. Now I am tempted to get a Glock 42 . . . for the Mrs.  Yes for the Mrs. LOL

2014 SHOT Show, A recap of what I saw

Even though the 2014 SHOT Show ended over a month ago, there were a lot of things there that we released and displayed for the first time.  Although I am finding that the industry is going away from launching at SHOT or NRA so their products are not buried along with every other product launch.  I did see a lot of innovative products this year, and a definite theme to the show in terms of what everyone was doing and where they were taking their product lines.  It almost became redundant at points, going from booth to booth being shown the same things over and over. I wanted to recap some of what I saw at SHOT this year in a hope that our readers would be able to get a better idea of where the industry is headed, and the things that I saw just about every company was doing.  While everyone has a different style to their product, the basic premise was the same.  These were the themes that I saw repeated this year.
