SHOT Show 2010 Day 1

SHOT Show 2010 Day 1
A quick look at some of the new guns from Day 1 of the 2010 SHOT Show.

The custom shop has tuned this pistol up for anyone interested in competing or who wants to do some serious paper punching with a single action 9mm.

CZ75 SA Target

The Target version of the CZ 75 Single Action was designed by Angus Hobdell, and brought to life by the CZ Custom Shop. The custom shop has tuned this pistol up for anyone interested in competing or who wants to do some serious paper punching with a single action 9mm. Modifications made by the gunsmiths at the CZ Custom Shop include a trigger job leaving all safeties intact, installation of Novak rear sight with a fiber optic front, competition springs, CZ Custom Aluminum Grips, firing pin, flat aluminum trigger, drop free magazine brake, and competition hammer.

The profiled stainless steel slide has cocking serrations front and rear, a 4" hammer-forged stainless barrel delivers long life and pinpoint accuracy.

FNH FNX-9 and FNX-40

The new FNX 9 and FNX 40 pistols offer the key features demanded by today's serious handgunner. New ergonomic polymer frames have a low bore axis for flat shooting and less felt recoil resulting in improved control. Deep checkered grip panels are comfortable and designed for no-slip shooting. Four interchangeable backstrap inserts quickly offer a custom fit and feel.


The profiled stainless steel slide has cocking serrations front and rear, a 4" hammer-forged stainless barrel delivers long life and pinpoint accuracy. Fully ambidextrous operating controls make the FNX perfect for competition and personal defense for both right and left-handed shooters. Each FNX comes with both a decocker and manual safety making it one of the safest hammer guns on the market. Every part is proudly made in the USA.


Like all XTP-like ammunition, Critical Defense feeds reliably in all pistols.

Hornady Critical Defense Ammunition

Hornady Critical Defense ammunition is unaffected by thick and heavy clothing, including denim and leather. The patented FTX bullet delivers superior controlled expansion and large, deep wound cavities over a wide range of velocities. Clean burning and stable propellants reduce recoil in lightweight handguns, perform consistently in all temperatures and offers minimal muzzle flash to protect night vision.

Like all XTP-like ammunition, Critical Defense feeds reliably in all pistols. Its shiny silver nickel case plating prevents corrosion, and is easily visible in low light situations. Bullets are cannelured and crimped to avoid bullet setback under recoil and bullets are even custom designed for individual loads.

All GP100 revolvers boast solid steel sidewalls (no side-plates), and frame widths that are increased with extra steel in critical areas.

Ruger GP100 .327 Magnum


Ruger GP100 double-action revolvers are among the most comfortable shooting revolvers, and now they can be had in an equally comfortable to shoot .327 Magnum. Though easier on recoil, this new cartridge gives nothing up in terms of terminal performance. Chambered in .327 Mag. the GP100's rugged, medium-sized frame and cushioned grip system permit repeated firings with minimal shooter fatigue.

All GP100 revolvers boast solid steel sidewalls (no side-plates), and frame widths that are increased with extra steel in critical areas that support the barrel, making them rugged, reliable, and dependable.

SIG SAUER P250 2SUM


SIG SAUER, Inc. now puts the modularity of the SIG SAUER P250 into one convenient package. The P250 2SUM comes with a full-size, Nitron-finished, 9mm P250, ideal for duty, home defense, or sport and all the components to quickly convert it to the P250 9mm Subcompact, a perfect conceal carry gun.

The 2SUM brings home the unique characteristics of the P250 by providing all you need to convert a full-size gun into a subcompact model, all in one convenient package. The total cost is lower than the price of two single guns from many other gun manufacturers.

Springfield XDM 3.8

A compact powerhouse was introduced by Springfield Armory this year. The XDM 3.8 has a 3.8-inch steel barrel with a fully supported ramp.

Taurus Polymer Protector

The Protector Polymer in .38 Special +P blends a unique design with modern updates that weighs in at a scant 18.2 ounces. This smart little number draws quickly with a fully shrouded zero-profile hammer and features a classically inspired polymer grip that offers the look of wood but the purchase and durability of polymer. This 5-shot revolver is DA/SA as the fully shrouded "Zero-Profile" hammer can be manually cocked or decocked in a single action operation when needed.

"We should all appreciate the path that Oliver Winchester created for not only our company but the shooting sports industry," said Dick Hammett, president of Winchester Ammunition. "Oliver Winchester was a pioneer and he left a legacy that we are proud to uphold. Without a doubt he's one of the most famous names in the shooting sports industry and it's only fitting that we pay tribute to his success during the year of his 200th birthday."
