The 2023 Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show opened in Las Vegas today with tens of thousands of square feet of law enforcement booths.

You can't see all the law enforcement products at SHOT in one day; you probably couldn't see all of them in one week. Often the most interesting stuff is in the smallest booths, and a widget can be as interesting as a major new product line from a leading firearms maker.

Here’s a look at some products that caught the eyes of our editorial team on day one.

Mossberg

509S Shotgun

Mossberg’s new 509S models feature the added benefit of being optics ready. The receiver is cut to accept direct mounting of Shield RMSc-pattern micro dot sights. When an optic is not included in the purchase, a cover plate is provided. The 509s series from Mossberg will cycle 1.75, 2.75, and 3-inch shells and is available with an 18.5-inch or 20-inch barrel.

Hellcat Pro 9mm

The new Hellcat Pro from Springfield Armory is a compact pistol chambered in 9mm that offers 15+1 capacity in a small footprint. The slide is milled with the Springfield Micro footprint and designed to accept the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market. Even though the Hellcat family of firearms are designed for concealability, the new Hellcat Pro adds an accessory rail while still maintaining a small package.
