Best 2010 of Shooting Sports USA takes a look back at some of the most useful products of 2010. We asked our readers for nominations and have included as many as space would allow. RANGE BAG Creedmoor Portable Air Gun Range The patented air gun range comes with a durable 80 x 60-inch curtain back stop made to withstand multiple impacts from pellets at 600 fps. Each target box is reinforced with an abrasion resistant steel impact plate and designed for easy emptying of spent pellets. The range allows placement of three target boxes per firing point, and Velcro edging allows multiple curtains to be joined, creating a range of any desired width. The only portable air gun range ever to be approved by the military, more than 700 high schools nationwide are introducing a new generation of shooting stars using this system.

The M&P features a polymer frame and stainless steel slide and barrel with melonite finish. Each pistol is equipped with a loaded chamber indicator on the top of the 4½-inch barrel, an ambidextrous slide stop and reversible magazine release.
