This year's SHOT Show was all about variety, as many companies diversified their product lines.

Safariland's Impactor is designed for use in crowd control and corrections.

Leupold: Mark 4 HAMR

Leupold's High Accuracy Multi-Range (HAMR) optic was developed to be a combat-ready scope for any AR variant rifle. The 4X scope features ballistically matched etched illuminated glass reticles for precise shot placement in any light condition. Available with a DeltaPoint reflex sight for close combat, the Mark 4 HAMR features Leupold's Balance Coat Lens System.

Nivisys: TAWS

Nivisys Industries' TAWS series offers a variety of thermal weapons sights. The TAWS units are rugged, compact, lightweight, and easy to operate. The 320x240 or 640x480 thermal detectors draw very low power. A remote control switch provides increased flexibility for the user, integrating the sight and the weapon. The objective lens is offered in 35mm or 60mm, providing the user with maximum target identification. An included hot shoe allows for accessories.

Original S.W.A.T.: SWAT ID Boots

Police units looking to build esprit de corps can now wear their unit logo on their boots. Officers can order the logo boots from Original S.W.A.T. through the company's SWAT ID program by registering at Customers pick out a model of Original S.W.A.T.'s SEK 9000 boots and provide the company with its logo. For a slight premium over the cost of the boot, Original S.W.A.T. will produce the logo footwear. Original S.W.A.T. says some units have ordered the boots for each member; others have ordered one-offs for trophies or retirement/reassignment gifts.

Propper International: A-TACS Tactical Wear

Propper International introduced the first Advanced Tactical Concealment System (A-TACS) gear at SHOT Show 2011. Propper will produce the A-TACS ACU, combat shirt, and boonie hat this year, releasing the ACU in the spring. The Propper A-TACS ACU is sewn to military specifications and made as a poly blend with 35 percent cotton ripstop fabric. Colors in the concealment pattern were digitally sampled from elements that occur in nature, and organic pixels replace square pixels to remove 90-degree angles and create a more fluid appearance, according to Propper. The A-TACS pattern was developed by Digital Concealment Systems and initially licensed to EOTAC. In November, Propper announced it had entered a partnership with Digital Concealment to produce the A-TACS ACU.

Reset: RIPR

One of the major complaints for operators in both the military and law enforcement is the need for all kinds of batteries for the accessories on their ARs. Reset thinks it has the solution for that problem, the Rifle Integrated Power Rail (RIPR). The RIPR is a combination of a battery pack and a rail. The rail has numerous gold-plated contact pads where users can attach accessories. Reset says that leading accessory manufacturers are planning to make products that will work on the RIPR.

Safariland: Impactor Fighting Shield

Monadnock, a Safariland company, showed its new Impactor Fighting Shield at the show. The Impactor is a polycarbonate impact-resistant shield for use in crowd control and corrections. Designed to allow the operator to use OC spray or a baton while wearing the shield, the Impactor is ambidextrous and can be labeled POLICE, SHERIFF, or CORRECTIONS.
