SHOT Show 2010

Where else can you get together with 58,000 of your closest friends and act like kids in a candy shop?


CQD Mark II Type E: The CQD Mark II Type E Manual Folder is identical to its original version of the Mark II and features the same high-strength, plunge-lock mechanism and carbide glass-breaker, yet by having the handle constructed out of a precision injection-molded reinforced nylon mounted to a 420J stainless steel frame, the Mark II becomes an affordable performance tool. The spear point AUS8A stainless steel blade in either plain or partially serrated edge type now has an improved edge geometry for greater performance and the plunge-lock mechanism has been re-engineered to enhance its strength and durability. The CQD Mark II Type E Manual Folder can be carried right or left-side, tip-down for $79.99 retail. There is also a Mark II Type E with aluminum handles that is available for $199.99.


PPE:

Revision Eyewear

Wolf Spider: I have yet to find a set of goggles as comfortable as my Desert Locusts from Revision Eyewear, but these Wolf Spider goggles are pretty comfy. Focusing on streamlining size and weight to increase comfort as well as equipment compatability, Revision did a good job with the Wolf Spider. The goggles High impact system exceeds the military ballistic impact requirements for goggles and thanks to the dual-material frame technology they've built in the goggles boast a durable protection level mixed with high comfort. The design is more low profile than the Sawfly (and every other competitor goggle I could find) while incorporating Revision's OcuMax coating to protect against fogging and scratching on the interchangeable lenses.

Fan Goggle: Of course, fogging on any goggle occurs because our bodies sweat under stress or in high temperatures - even our eye lids, upper cheeks and nose. That sweating can cause fogging on the inside of even the best goggles if we get out of control. The only way to really prevent (110%) fogging is to circulate the air inside the goggles out and bring new air in. Revision has done that too with their Desert Locust Fan Goggle. Incorporating a small fan centered above the nose and a battery mounted on the strap, the Fan Goggle has three different power settings to extend life from the AA battery. Very cool.
