With over 1,600 exhibitors in attendance showing 7 million pounds of gear, there are a lot of new products for legally armed citizens at the Shooting, Hunting, And Outdoor Trade (SHOT) show. If you choose to carry concealed, you might be interested in some of the new concealed carry gear we found this year. Here are a few items that peaked our interest.
Crimson Trace has a new Laserguard Pro that fits a variety of Glock models. The Laserguard Pro offers both a 150-lumen tactical light and either red or green lasers depending on the model. The new LL-810/G will fit Glock Gen 3 models 26, 27, 29, 30, 33, 36, 39 and Gen 4 model 26, 27, 29, 30 and 33 pistols.
MSRP: Begins at $279 for the red laser model.
XS has been known for their Big Dot V-ramp and oversized front dot sights. Now, they’ve combined the best of both worlds, traditional notch and post design for precision and a large front dot combined with some optical tricks on the back for speed of sight acquisition.
The new F8 sights have a larger than standard front posts that contain a huge orange photo-luminescent dot. The dot not only is bright during daylight, but it also picks up light so that it continues to glow as you transition indoors. When in dark conditions, a center Tritium dot glows green. The rear sight has a “U-shaped” notch. That directs your eye to the top of the sight which is the part that needs to line up with the front. It’s another little detail that contributes to speed.
