5 New Handguns From SHOT Show 2017

5 New Handguns From SHOT Show 2017

The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference has been an eye opener! Each year, business professionals in the shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement industries gather in Las Vegas to present new products for the new year and we (of course) had to share them with you. 

Hudson H9

Every detail and feature of the Hudson H9 is practical yet advanced in design. Accompanied with a 1911 style trigger, this pistol has a quick release with almost no overtravel and short reset. It’s unique design is not just for appearances either. The nose of the pistol allows for the barrel and recoil spring to sit drastically lower and closer to the hand and is coupled with its striker-fired design creating an extremely low bore axis which reduces torque which in turn increases precision in the shot process. With over three years in the making, this meticulously designed pistol is sure to draw a demand amongst modern shooters.

Colt Cobra

Colt makes a celebrated return with its legendary double-action revolvers. The Colt Cobra features an all-steel construction, rubber wrapped grip to assist with managing recoil, framed with a 2” barrel, and chambered in .38 Special (+P capable) allowing for an ideal concealed carry option. This easy and enjoyable revolver was designed to meet the needs of new and seasoned shooters alike.



The Taurus SPECTRUM is the first semi-automatic pistol equipped with soft-touch panels seamlessly integrated into the grip and slide. One of the most prominent feature to this collection is the countless option of color combinations to choose from. The SPECTRUM has a safe, long and smooth 7-9 pound trigger that offers a quick release - common to a striker-fired system, and comes in .380 ACP. The overall line merges fashion and function and revolutionizes the concealed carry experience.

Ruger Mark IV


The Ruger Mark IV has many distinct features that allow it to stand out. Its simple, one-button takedown allows for quick and easy field-stripping and muzzle cleaning. The upper receiver tilts up and off of the grip frame with the push of a button, the construction of the internal cylindrical bolt ensures permanent sight to barrel alignment to improve accuracy, and its sighting system even features adjustable rear sights for easy optic mounting options. The assortment of features to this line of rimfire pistols is especially impressive.

Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0

The M&P M2.0 pistol was designed for personal, sporting, and professional use and is the newest to the M&P polymer pistol line. The M2.0 includes an extended stainless-steel chassis and high grip-to-barrel bore axis ratio for reduced muzzle rise and quicker aim recovery. Available in three calibers, the pistol also includes an aggressively-textured grip and four interchangeable palmswell inserts. This striker-fire, semi-automatic polymer pistol is available in matte black or flat dark earth finishes.
