Week in Review:

Ryan: Shot a car today! Used a Remington 887 Nitro with 3 ½ in shells….fun to see, but not terribly enjoyable.

Weerd: When it rains it pours!    Went to NRAA Meeting,   got some Eddie Eagle videos which my Daughter LOVES,  you can get them free on youtube.

Then a buddy of mine FINALLY took me up on a range trip as he’s planning on buying his first gun soon and wanted to try out an assortment of guns to see what he liked.

Sadly he shot my semi-autos WAY better than my revolvers,  so we may not make a wheel gunner of him

Drink Segment: While at the house I was cooking dinner for the gang and I was also the bartender.   Made Martinis, Manhattans,  and one night when a call for “Something new” was requested,  I decided to make a gimlet….only my traditional recipe of 0.5oz Elderflower Liqueur, 1oz lime juice, and 2oz Gin was not available.    I did have sugar for a simple syrup,  but it was dark brown,   and I had limes, but they were key limes which taste fantastic, but are VERY small.    So I elected to squeeze a lemon too to make up the needed amount of juice for a large crowd of thirsty gunbloggers.    To tie it all together I had a bottle of peychaud’s bitters, and that tied the dark richness of the brown sugar with the brightness of the lime and lemon juice.   It was something unique, and quite good!

HGR 076 - SHOT Show 2015 Products, Rumors & Speculation

Hello and welcome to Handgun Radio! I’m your host Ryan Michad from the wilds of Central Maine, and this is your home for all the news, information and discussion in the handgunning world.

This week, I’m joined by TJ to discuss the various SHOT Show 2015 Products, Rumors & Speculation!

Brought to you by the Firearms Radio Network

Week in Review:

-Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday! I got a Desantis Nemesis for my Kahr CM9 for Christmas, as well as some gift cards to some sporting goods stores!

-I used one of my cards and picked up a Bushnell TRKR 125 Lumen flashlight for $20. It is a great little light that runs on one AA battery and uses high intensity CREE LED’s. I am very impressed with the light for the price.


  • I recently tested out the See All Open Sight for the Firearms Insider, so look out for that review pretty soon.
  • I also received some Newbold Polymer targets in for review. They seem really cool, but I need to get out and test them.

Main Topic: SHOT Show 2015 Products, Rumors & Speculation

For this topic, we are mainly working off of pre-show reports as to what will be present there. We looked at the Guns, Holsters & Gear website to see the compiled list of guns that are either rumored to be introduced at SHOT or are in fact confirmed to be introduced. We will also have to discuss a few of the entries as they are sometimes vague as to what the gun will be.


Dan Wesson Silverback 1911 in 10mm & .45 ACP -

Smith & Wesson M&P Ported Pistols -

Bersa BP-380CC -

Charter Arms Pitbull in .45 ACP -

Heizer Defense Pocket Sniper (.308) & Pocket AK (7.62x39mm) -

New Sig Sauer Pistols -

ERGO Delta Grip for Ruger LCR -

New frame options for the Beretta Pico .380 -

TJ's note: Why the heck isn't Ruger doing this?


Single Stack Glock 9mm -

Ruger Announcing New Striker Fired Pistol in the days before the SHOT Show -- LCPs?

  • SR Pro? (Grant Cunningham Edition)

S&W Shield Accessory - Not a lot of info on this one; supposedly makes the gun more shootable.

Wishlist Guns:

Ruger 77/357 with a Mannlicher Style Stock

Single-Stack Glock in 10mm (or a re-engineered, thinner single stack 45 to compete with the XDs)

Ruger LCP in .22 LR

Ryan -

  • Wrote an article over at the Firearms Insider about the new Remington R51 and where it came from. Here is the link for the article, be sure to go check it out along with all the other great content over at the Firearms Insider!
  • Been pretty busy with show stuff and preparing to help out the guys who are in Las Vegas this coming week for SHOT Show 2014! Jake and the rest of the team have a really good game plan for covering as much as absolutely possible while out there.  Each team of two has a high definition video camera to capture as much video of the new products that are going to be introduced.  Please visit www.shotshow2014.com for all the coverage by the Firearms Radio Network!
  • A friend of mine got a deal on a shrouded hammer .38 Special revolver. A close friend had the firearm and just wanted to get rid of it, as they weren’t really a gun person.  They let it go for $50.  It is a Taurus 851 with an alloy frame and a titanium cylinder. It has a shrouded hammer, which I don’t particularly care for, but otherwise looks to be a great little .38, especially for $50. It’s his first gun, so welcome to the world of being a gun owner Jeffery.
