Every January, SHOT Show kicks off a new year for the firearm industry, with new models unveiled and new sales orders signed. The entire event literally kicks off with a bang, in the case of the event's Industry Day at the Range held on the Monday before the show and select events like the SIG Sauer Range Day held the Sunday before Industry Day. However, as American Rifleman staffers scour range days and the show floor, there's a tremendous amount of video and print coverage that makes it up onto our website and YouTube channel.

Now that we're a month out from the end of SHOT Show 2020, it's clear that certain products resonate with our readers more than others. Out of the many articles and videos we publish, a few shine above the rest. Here are the most popular stories we saw at the show and the roundups that you guys loved. If you missed any, check them out below:

There are literally thousands of new guns at SHOT Show, and it's impossible to see all of them.
