SHOT Show 2018: Ithaca Non-NFA 12-Ga. Pump

posted on January 29, 2018
With the runaway success of 14" barrel non-NFA pump-action 12-ga. firearms last year, including the Mossberg Shockwave and Remington 870 Tac-14, it's not surprising that companies are looking to grab as much of the market share for themselves as they can. Charles Daly has already announced the Honcho line, which will include .410-bore, 20-ga. and 12-ga. options with polymer furniture while Mossberg and Remington will be adding new calibers, finishes and removable box magazine models.

But hiding in plain sight over at the MKS Supply booth was a 14" barrel Ithaca Model 37 Defense pump-action prototype. I got to hold it, but the staff members would not (or could not) tell me much about it. Ithaca is sticking to the classically styled hardwood fixtures for their 14" pump gun, including the grooved pump handle and a pistol grip with a wedge shaped grip that gives the visual impression of a shorten shoulder stock. With the exception of the grip and the barrel length, this yet to be named or priced scatter gun has the same features as the standard Model 37 defensive models including carbon steel construction, a matte black finish and brass bead front sight.

NRA 150: First Gold For American Riflemen

The modern Olympics, as we know them today, started in 1896, and there were shooting events at the games as early as Athens in 1906. After all, the man who put the games together, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, was himself a French pistol champion. Neither the United States nor Great Britain sent rifle teams to Athens, but that changed for the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
