Gear [SHOT 2017] KG Industries Dave Merrill January 24, 2017 SHOT Show 2017: KG Industries KG Industries has been around since 1969, with their roots deep in motorcycles and lubricant development. For the last 35 years they’ve also been producing performance coatings. Gun Kote is the name of their firearms line of coatings, and it appears someone skilled can do a lot with it. KG Industries tells us it’s incredibly simple to apply with an airbrush system. There’s no binder, catalyst, or hardener and they have options for both heat and air cure; though curing via heat makes for a more lasting result. KG Industries also tells us that a .5 mil application is ideal. While we haven’t tried it for ourselves or tested the validity of the claims, some of the results on display definitely stood out. You can visit KG Industries online here. This has been a special SHOT Show installment of Industry News. It is not a review nor an endorsement. What is the NSSF SHOT Show? The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world’s premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services. Imagine the Worlds’ Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you’d like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year’s SHOT, there’s a live map right here, though it doesn’t reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc View imagery from our coverage of last year’s SHOT Show here; 2015’s is right here.
