Many teams of reporters and camera crews covered SHOT Show this year. Collectively they’ve now posted a wide selection of video reports. In today’s SHOT Show video showcase, we feature eight of our favorite video reports from SHOT Show 2020, plus one great video “Blast from the Past”.

SIG Sauer Cross Bolt-Action Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor and .277 Fury

Hunters take note — the Cross weighs under 7 lbs. without optics. Initially this rifle will be offered in 6.5 Creedmoor and the new .277 Fury chamberings.

New Scopes from March Optics

March Optics has some very impressive products for 2020. In this video, Stuart Elliot from Australia covers the features of the March 4.5-28x52mm PRS scope, the March 5-42x56mm Long Range scope, and several other premium optics.

The Reborn Colt Python — Vickers Tactical Report

Larry Vickers discusses the return of the Colt Python with Colt representative Justin Baldini. We shot the new stainless Colt (4″ barrel version) on Monday 1/20 and were very impressed, the fit/finish is really excellent. The trigger was precise, and the accurate was superb.

This Brownell’s video showcases Volquartsen’s new Summit rifle chambered for the .17 WSM (Winchester Super Magnum) rimfire cartridge.

Vortex 1-10x24mm Scope for Hunting and Tactical Comps

Vortex’s new 1-10x24mm scope has been creating a lot of buzz. We checked it out at the Vortex booth and think this scope is a good choice for competitors who sometimes need a very wide field of view, and for hunters who can quickly scan at 1-3X and then sight their prey at higher power. AT 1X power this illuminated scope works like a red dot for close ranges. And then 10X is plenty for game hunting.

New SOG Knives for 2020

According to KnifeCenter.com, SOG has some very impressive new products for 2020. The reviewers praised the XR Lock, as well as an assisted version. Many updated older “fan favorites” will also be available in 2020. Nearly 15 minutes long, this video covers a wide selection of blades.

Blast from the Past…

This last video is from 2017, but it’s still well worth watching. With a cool soundtrack, the video is entertaining and features lots of pretty ladies!
