2018 SHOT Show: New Handguns and Shotguns

Handgun and shotgun performance continue to improve every season with new innovations from many manufacturers. This year will be no exception, as the DDH team found several exciting new handgun and shotgun products at the 2018 SHOT Show.

There are more choices in deer hunting than just rifles. Shotguns and handguns have plenty of fans in the deer woods, and quite a few states and counties still mandate their use. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the options hunters have for handguns and shotguns continue to improve every year. Plus, it means that hunters have an excuse for another firearm in the safe!
