Shot Show 2016 in general and Kimber

Any of you guys digging the new products of Shot Show 2016.

I like the new Magpul products of their bolt action receiver stock replacement and other light weight stocks. I like the M-LOK design over the tradition keyhole design for accessories. I like Bravo Company/Daniel Defense ARs as well. There are also a few lightweight 308 AR variants coming out which is pretty exciting. I think DPMS's .308 AR was the best bang for the buck for awhile and now there is competition which is a good thing. And one more thing, there is an affordable 1-8x Hi-Lux CMR8 scope that I am really interested in.

One last thing to note, I am digging the new Kimber's 6-shot conceal carry revolver. How do you revolver fans compare this to other tradition manufacters like SmithWesson and Ruger's revolvers.

More competition in the 308 AR platform is not a bad thing, but I still prefer my M1A. The new Kimber revolver looks nice. I think the jury will be out until they hit the street and we get some owner perspective. I for one, don't see it displacing my Colt snakes for hearts-and-minds

Thanks guys, right now I'm recovering from a near heart attack. We were on a cruise ship over Christmas when it happened, I wont bore ya with details but what a nightmare, third world care once we got back to port in Ft Lauderdale anyway I'm patched up again, 4th stent third event with my heart..... seems like I am on the 7 yr plan (every 7 yrs I get stents) anyway glad to be here. We have dove into Cowboy action and revolvers a lot more, sold a couple Kimbers my RCP and the Solo DC and have stocked up on every kind of western shooter you can imagine, got into reloading cause those 45 colt rounds can be scarce and pricey. Its all good, glad to see everyone still here. I am on the Ruger forum here and there, AKA Gus Grizzle my SASS name.
Here's a couple of new ones 45 colt Vaqueros birds head grips 3.75 barrels Talo, in one of my leather sets.






I APOLOGIZE TO THE O/P for the hi-jack on the thread
