American Rifleman Managing Editor Aaron Carter, myself, and a few other NRA editors got a chance to tear up the Nevada desert on theYamaha Grizzly 450 at Bass Pro Media Day at the SHOT Show. This automatic 4x4 has many of the same great features as big brothers Grizzly 700 and 550, including four-wheel independent suspension, and it’s powered by a fuel-efficient, liquid-cooled engine.
There’s no doubt about it, the SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show is a big deal. The largest and most comprehensive trade show for the shooting, hunting and law enforcement industries, SHOT Show attracts firearms retailers, manufacturers and outdoor media from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Approximately 1,500 exhibitors are expected to set up shop at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., and more than 50,000 attendees are anticipated to descend on this outdoor enthusiast’s paradise.
