Bill's Gun Shop and Range Spring Shooter's Show Round-up

We headed over to Bill's Gun Shop and Range in Robbinsdale, MN for their bi-annual Shooter's Show. We had the chance to shoot everything that the sales reps from various companies brought. DPMS, CZ USA, Springfield Armory, GLOCK, COLT, Smith & Wesson, Beretta, Legacy Sports, Charter Arms, Taurus, Streamlight, Crimson Trace, Mossberg, Surefire, Trijicon. Here are a few things that caught our eye:

Trijicon LED

The Trijicon ACOG LED is a battery (AA) powered version of their popular ACOG optic. This eliminates the need for radioactive Tritium. This however does not mean you get a break in price... $1433 Accepting Pre-Orders. Very similar to the Browe BCO... or the same thing?

Citadel M1911 Wounded Warrior Edition

Legacy Sports donates $25.00 from each Wounded Warrior model sold will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project to aid injured, returning veterans. Legacy Sports International has been an avid supporter of WWP for the past three years, donating over $20,000.00 to help wounded vets and their families.

Crimson Trace

The Crimson Trace Master Series for the 1911 platform allows for the use of a full-size ambidextrous safety. The grip is made of G-10.
The Crimson Trace Rail Master is a new comer to the market and has a lot of promise. It's very small form factor makes it ideal for pistol applications and suitable for long guns as well.


I have touched on the Mossberg Modern Rilfe before and this was the first time I got to handle one. The Stark Grip is what stands out too me. It is not an uncomfortable grip; just a little goofy looking in my opinion.  It seems pretty well built even though I didn't get a chance to shoot this one I do think it is a decent rifle.

Above is the C5L and X5L along with their Enhanced Combat Readiness Holster. Both offer a bright white light and a dazzling green laser.

Stuff I was looking for but didn't see:
