Among the 12.5 miles of exhibit space at SHOW Show 2017 there were a lot of handguns. No other weapons symbolizes self-defense more than the handgun, so it’s no wonder that so many new models are coming out this year.
We spent three days in Vegas to bring you these top new handguns from SHOT Show 2017.
