2019 SHOT Show Consumer Highlights - NSSF Let's Go Shooting

2019 SHOT Show Consumer Highlights

NSSF’s SHOT Show® — Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show — is an annual tradeshow for the shooting, hunting and firearms industry. It provides an opportunity for industry professionals to network, see new products and conduct business. Even though the SHOT Show is restricted to professionals in the firearms and outdoors industries and commercial buyers and sellers of military, law enforcement and tactical products, the vast majority of the products displayed at the show are destined for retailer’s shelves across the country. See what’s coming to your favorite outdoor and firearms retailer this year with these highlights from the 2019 SHOT Show.

2019 SHOT Show Hot Trends

Concealed Carry

The personal-defense industry is a huge and important one as thousands of new shooters are embracing the knowledge that, with proper training and implementation, a concealed carry weapon user can literally save lives. Check out some of the latest developments in the concealed carry handgun market.

Long-Range Rifles

The long-range shooting market is showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever. There are cartridges constantly being developed specifically for this market and the technology behind the ammo, optics and attendant gear continues to evolve. But none of that matters if you don’t have a rifle that can get the job done. Here are a few SHOT Show featured rifles that are just about perfect for the long-range shooter or hunter


Modern optics are the best they’ve ever been, and contrary to the scopes of a couple decades ago, it’s now almost taken for granted that even the most inexpensive models will give reliable results. Still, a quality optic is well worth the investment. See a few interesting optics displayed on the 2019 SHOT Show floor.
