NRA Show 2012: Introducing the Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 Riflescope

NRA Show 2012: Introducing the Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 Riflescope

If you looked around at the optics tables around the NRA Show in St. Louis, you'd guess that 2012 is the year of 1-6x power scopes, and you'd probably be right. Vortex gave me a look at its brand new Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 riflescope, a scope designed with competition in mind. Vortex's HD glass is some of the best on the market, offering a crystal clear view, and working with Jerry Miculec certainly doesn't hurt when it comes to making this scope the best it can possibly be.

The Vortex Razor HD is a true 1x power scope with a 115-plus-foot field of view, and features a JM-1 BDC reticle in a 30mm tube. The turrets offer 50 MOA per rotation, and these tactile, zero-resettable turrets make traveling with them so much easier. The Vortex Razor HD will be available this fall and will retail around $1,700, but may sell for as low as $1,399.

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
