New Product Round Up — SHOT Day 4

For those who may never have heard of the SHOT Show (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade) it is the largest gun show in the world. Unfortunately, because it is a trade show, it is not open to the public. That does not mean you will not have a front row seat at The Shooter’s Log. We have been busy running from booth to booth to discover what’s new in Pistols, Rifles, Shotguns, Airguns, Accessories, and Optics.

Hi-Point’s Affordable .45 Caliber Carbine

The Hi-Point carbine we are discussing retails for less than $300. I was surprised at the low price and by the performance of this firearm. This is a budget or economy firearm. It isn’t a tack driver at 100 yards, but then few firearms firing a pistol caliber cartridge are. The Hi-Point carbine is a credible home defender, a good recreational shooter, and in a pinch, it will do for small game at modest range. Did we mention the price?

Five New Accessories You Don’t Need

There are plenty of times we buy stuff we do not need. “Because it’s cool” is a valid reason to buy a new gun, accessory or survival item. Sometimes a product that seems silly comes in handy during competition, survival, camping, hunting or hiking. Some of the weirdest items have gotten me out of a pinch when I’m out in the middle of nowhere and forgot an essential piece of my gear. These five new accessories include a magazine can for your cache, magazine koozies, a harpoon, a deck of “tactical” playing cards and LaserLyte’s newest trigger guard laser for Hi-Point pistols. Check out this week’s newest products from Cheaper Than Dirt! Be prepared to be surprised how useful many of these accessories can be.
