It's that time of year again — January brings the beginning of SHOT Show 2020, the world's largest shooting, hunting, and outdoor trade show. As in previous years, we'll be packing up our cameras, laptops, and note pads to spend a full week in Las Vegas documenting all the new gear that's announced at this industry-exclusive event. Vendors bring out their latest guns, packs, tools, apparel, off-road vehicles, and other products to show them off to members of the media for the very first time.

The flurry of announcements at SHOT Show is always exciting to witness, and gives us an early look at some of the items that will  be released later in the year. This show is not open to the public, only to manufacturers, sales staff, and credentialed media — thankfully, we fall into the third category, so we're able to attend. We use this opportunity to walk the show floor, taking photos and video clips of new products as we get our hands on them.

The SHOT Show floor officially opens tomorrow morning, but today is the Industry Day at the Range. That means we'll be at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club, trying out featured firearms from a variety of manufacturers. Tuesday through Friday, we'll be walking the floor of the Sands Expo Center for the bulk of the show.

Highlights will be posted on our Instagram and Facebook accounts as usual, but this year we're doing things a little differently and posting more live content to our Instagram Stories. You'll be able to see some of the posts in the gallery below, but be sure to follow us on Instagram to see the latest stories at SHOT Show 2020. Also, stay tuned here on OFFGRIDweb for new gear articles throughout the week!

When we hear the term “survival knife,” we most often think of a large fixed blade of some type and not a folding pocket knife. Yet, the Buck 110 Folding Hunter may make you change that way of thinking. Read on, article link in our bio @recoiloffgridmagazine. ...

If someone is carrying using a less-than-ideal method, they’ll typically be forced to grasp or hold the weapon during physical activity. Running, jogging, or even a brisk walk could be enough to displace a handgun stuck inside the waistband. This is also true if their preferred concealment method is inside the pocket. Look for signs of this at the onset of someone doing something physical. When the physical activity is over, look for the grasp to be released followed up by a quick adjustment.
