2009 Shot Show News Update


CNJ’s roving reporters were out on field assignments this past weekend, so we weren’t able to cover the 2009 Shot Show in Orlando. The official daily news summaries provided by their news reporters and are loaded on their site.


Looks like some good knife stuff got introduced. I know Case was rolling out their 09 product line there too. 

I was able to find out Case officially introduced a new TrapperLock, as reported in ShotDaily.



“The new Case TrapperLock offers a more modern liner-locking clip blade that opens with just one hand. It is offered with a stainless-steel saber blade, concave ground and fitted with a specially engraved torque screw for smooth one-handed opening. Other features include nickel-silver end bolsters and a Case oval shield on the handle. The new Case TrapperLock measures 41/8 inches when closed and weighs 3.4 ounces.”
