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.

Do you know this person? On 17JAN2017 He stole a Trijicon, Inc. MRO and American Defense MFG mount off of our UIC9, in the new product display. Please help bring this person to justice!!!! If you know the identity of this person, please call Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Headquarters reference Case# 170118-2493 at (702)828-3683.
The trend is easy to see. Glass for Modern Sporting Rifles (MSR)—such as the AR-15 and other rifles of the ilk—and long-range shooting continues to gain ground.
Much has already been written about the Trijicon MRO. One forum has no less than 52 pages of arguments, many of which seem to be written by people who don’t actually USE their optics beyond their couch or local gun range. Unlike others we have seen, this MRO review points out one really big thing that many have ignored or glossed over.
There are times when you don’t notice a shift in the paradigm, but with the new Glock G17 and G19 Gen4 MOS (Modular Optic System) pistols the move is obvious and clear. Conceal carry pistols equipped with optics are the next stage in the evolution of defensive pistols. Read the full range report to find out why.
Exciting news for carbine owners—the Trijicon MRO red dot sight is in stock and shipping! For a little over $500, the new MRO gives other sights a run for their money. Six other new optics are also featured in this post—including the 2,400-lumen Dominator, NcStar’s innovative blue laser and a revamp of Trijicon’s classic RX30-14.
Whitetails may still be America’s number one game animal, but feral hogs are a close second. Check out our top choices of optics for hogs to increase your success!
Cheaper Than Dirt! staffers covering the 2014 SHOT Show have filed third-day reports on optics introduced at the show.
Given the rate products are flying off the shelves at Cheaper Than Dirt! and elsewhere around the country, it’s not worth being too picky in deciding which products deserve flavor of the week treatment, so I am not going to even try. I have already played with a whole goodie bag full of new offerings this year and will roll out a handful of new products each week.
