Generating quite a bit of buzz at SHOT Show 2015 is the http://www.leupold.com D-EVO riflescope. Standing for "Dual-Enhanced View Optic," the D-EVO is a fixed-power (6x20 mm) riflescope that attaches inline with a standard red-dot scope or holographic sight.

It requires no major adjustment of viewing angle or shifting the position of the rifle to change from the forward nonmagnified sight to the 6X D-EVO. The tube of the D-EVO is offset from the top rail (and no, it does not allow you to shoot around corners, despite what the internet might say).

In use, the D-EVO has a slight viewing shift required to transition from the D-EVO scope to a red-dot sight, but that shift is not significant. No more need to tilt the rifle 45 degrees or prairie-dog over the magnified optic, one needs only to shift the field of vision very slightly.

MSRP: $1,874, available in the first quarter of 2015.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
