FIX IT, COLOR IT, TURN IT TO DUST:
2018'S NEWEST GEAR FOR COMPETITORS
BY ART MERRILL, FIELD EDITOR
Shooting competitions continue to gain in popularity, and SHOT Show 2018
saw manufacturers bring out new gear to satisfy the itch and fill the niche.
Here's a rundown of new gear you might find useful.
BB guns are an inexpensive route for introducing
youngsters to the shooting sports, and now, "You'll
put your eye out!" is no longer a viable excuse for
Mom to argue against a BB gun for Junior. Beginning
this month, Air Venturi will have available Dust Devil
BBs-frangible projectiles that turn to dust on impact
with a hard surface to preclude ricochets. Dust Devil
.177 cal. BBs open the door to safe training and target
practice nearly anywhere indoors. The maker says
the proprietary blend of special lighter alloys give
Dust Devil BBs about 10 percent more velocity than
traditional steel BBs, and they contain no lead.
