Cabot shows off meteors, mammoths, and affordable luxury at SHOT Show

Las Vegas, Nevada - High quality firearms and Cabot Guns go hand-in-hand. Cabot's President Rob Bianchin has a simple philosophy when it comes to high quality guns. "Life's too short to shoot an ugly gun," he says with a laugh. Utilizing 100% American-made products, the company strives for excellence in every aspect.

Creating the slide and frame alone takes 30 hours per gun. With that time, however, comes extreme precision.
