    Shot SHow Info

    From scouring the other sites - I'll post what I have seen mentioned so far...

    Keltec bullpup in 7.62mm NATO to be released by the end of the year. Supposedly, $2000, $2500 and $3000, depending on the features ya get. WOW. Awefully high...

    LaserMax lasers - eventually a green internal laser. And, some new external lasers. Red, green and blue... For $189 each. Never seen a blue laser before...

    Glock 21 SF - New ambi mag release. Supposedly, the same rail it already has. Just slightly slimmer in the grip backstrap. Word is that it is NOT single stack afterall.

    Ruger - New round. 375 Ruger... Supposedly a rifle round similiar to a 30.06

    Check out wicked lasers web page. They offer all kinds of lasers. The colors are in terms of power. Bottom of the line you have red, then yellow (has to be very finly tuned to get yellow), then green, then blue.

    I had a green laser in early Dec but ended up selling it. I bought it for my PS90 before I actually had the gun.

    The things are WAY too bright - at least this one was. It completely lit up a darkroom light a lightbulb. Easily seen at 100 yards in daylight, and probably over 1000 yards at night easily (thing claimed 10000 yards - but who can see that far). I tried it out to about 700 yards and could easily see it.

    But, for inside use, what I wanted it for - it was dangerous. Hurt your eyes to even look at the dot on the wall. I did some research on Class 3 green lasers and decided that it wasn't safe for me personally. I wasn't comfortable with it. If I had room on my PS90 for a green and red laser, I may have kept it - zeroed it for 100 yards outside for some fun. But, I wanted a laser for household distances for the PS90. So, I sold the green laser and bought an inexpensive red laser. That's what I have now....

    It's the .375 Ruger, not the .357 Ruger.
    It has the same OAL as the .30-06 Springfield but it's larger in diameter. It is supposed to outperform the .375 H&H and be used in standard-length actions.

    I don't see the Kel-Tec "RFB High Efficiency Rifle" selling very well at $2000 with what it has to compete with.

    Damnit, Ship. You already have me buying a Walther P99 soon. Now I'm going to want a green laser to mount to it.

    How much did ya sell it for? I really like the green lasers. I have played around with the 5mW ones and I do not find them that bright. What I want are the 55mW ones that WL sell! They are hot enough to burn at close distances. You can see the beam in the day and night. Looks really neat! I am sure I could find some practical uses for it doing Search and Rescue as well. Oh well

    I paid $80 for it shipped, sold it for $75 or so. It was one from Ebay sold from Hong Kong. Other Ps90 owners had them and said they held up well enough. The PS90 has very low recoil. On a high recoil weapon, not sure how it would have done...

    By law, U can't have 1 of those lasers that U want - I read a lot of stuff to make sure mine wasn't against the law, because it was so bright. Unless mine was mislabbeled, it was 5mW. And, believe me, U COULD see it in the daytime. 100 yards easily. Maybe more.

    U could also see the beam itself in the dark or at night. But it hurt your eyes to look at the thing inside the house (at those distances).

    For a gun, I don't see the point of having a laser that U can trace the beam back to the person with the gun. And in a room, its like turning on a flashlight as I said above.

    The only use I could have done w/ it would have been long range outdoor range use. Had I not wanted a flashlight mounted on my PS90, I suppose I could have kept both lasers on there....

    My green laser craving has been worked out now

    Haha I still have one! I saw those HK lasers on ebay a few months ago. I was kinda worried about getting one since similar ones are priced around $250 or so and I didn't want to get scammed. I cant wait to find an officer that is up to date on the laser laws. Or one with the equipment to measure

    AN officer may not be up to date - but I can tell U that if U do buy the ones that actually heat up the skin, U could really hurt yourself. I read some stuff that said that sometimes those pop up on ebay, and someone could really hurt themselves. Those are so powerful that U could damage your eye w/o even looking directly into the beam. No thanks...

    Yea, I wondered about the quality too. But, I waited until others took the plunge 1st and were happy w/ them on the PS90. And, while there are like 3 different green ones on Ebay, I've seen some of them being resold on vendor sites for over $300, and they are the exact same laser...


    Back on topic... That's nice about those 45s

    Hey guys. I'm from GunLovers.Net. Tomorrow is the last day of the show. But I'll still be there. I'm working to get the information out as fast as possible. But with so many new things out it's hard to say the least. I'm posting everything here:
    http://gunlovers.19.forumer.com/viewforum.php?f=42

    If you have any questions you want me to ask for you. Post them and I will try my best to get answers. So far only one person has asked something I couldn't get an answer to and that was because the company didn't attend the show.

    Read earlier that there will be a Taurus .223 revolver....

    Interesting...

    If it were a S&W, I might be more excited
