Lars, along with Glen Hoyer, report on first shots with the Smith & Wesson 69 Combat Magnum Revolver.
Boulder City, Nevada, USA – -(Ammoland.com)- SHOT Show’s Media Day was a little different. Now before starting with the rumors and speculation just stop. It wasn’t all that different for anyone else … just me. I walked up and down the lanes of the Boulder Rifle & Pistol Club with Glen Hoyer, the director of NRA’s Law Enforcement Division.
Glen’s background in law enforcement provides a unique take on the guns and gear offered up at these events. Questions such as will it work in the field, how many holsters does it fit, is it light enough to work as a backup kept rolling off his tongue.
Only a few of those we took out for a test drive met with his rigorous standards. One was Smith & Wesson’s new 5-shot .44 Magnum revolver.
