Guns and Gear at the 2016 Great American Outdoor Show

The Great American Outdoor Show is a great way to get hands-on with all things outdoors, such as the products we've been featuring in American Rifleman for several months. It's a great time to see that new Savage rifle that hasn't hit the local gun stores yet. Or put your hands on Magpul's newest polymer accessory. Needless to say, there is a lot this show has to offer. In fact, I am just winding down from a seminar hosted by R. Lee Ermey, (the "gunny"), who said it perfectly: "I love this show. I love SHOT Show, too, but this one I can actually buy stuff ... like this...," as he pulled a custom kukari machete from his vest. I asked the Marine veteran if he had a favorite firearm. With a broad grin he replied, "the M1 Garand." I think he's a gun enthusiast—and apparently he has a few of his own. Since I too am a gun enthusiast, like many of us, I offer a sampling of what I spotted in around the halls of the show.
