Well Dean wasn’t kidding when he said the new space is 5 times the size of the old one… it is huge!
Gotta respect that social distancing
The store has everything to outfit the shooter from head to toe…including eyes
I did pick up a pair of the Decibullz custom molded ear plugs and am anxious to try them out
And for your hands, Mechanix gloves
And Original footwear for your feet
For your firearms, a wall of Magpul, following their display at SHOT show
Magpul is moving away from plain brown boxes to ones with colour pics of the contents
More parts and accessories
Optics from Trijicon and Vortex…watch for big news about Vortex from Select soon
The best option to transport your guns, Nanuk cases
Although the Voodoo tactical soft cases were also nice
In fact, I regret that I didn’t buy this range bag as it was pretty spectacular
Gotta feed the beasts…some reloading equipment
Nice to see High Capacity (featuring my SHOT Show review)
Some other nice touches around the store…a live counter of Facebook likes
A rotating display (switched monthly) of historical arms from the Canadian Historical Arms Museum
Dean can control the lighting for all the display cases via a phone app…pretty cool!
Ok on the guns! Mossberg
The new JM 940 hasn’t arrived yet….until then, the 930
Of course Jerry Miculek also endorses Smith & Wesson
More great revolvers from S&W
including a rare cutaway (yes this has to be registered as a restricted)
Some high end options from CZ…an engraved Shadow and the Czechmate
Including one of my grail guns, a consignment H-S Precision HTR
I have to admit, it was surreal to visit a gun store without seeing AR-15s, except for maybe 1
Last but not least, the new range! Still a work in progress, it will feature two ranges with 6 lanes each and everything up to 30-06 with some fancy retrieval systems and multiple membership options including a dual membership with a range in the US! Select will be posting more about that soon.
View from what will be the firing line
And for Select’s podcast
Congratulations once again to Select for the awesome expansion. I wish it could be a more positive time but we have to remain optimistic that the Conservatives will get in power and turn things around. Untilb then, keep supporting the industry and enjoying our sport.
It was great to be back at Select and see how things are progressing. Since my visit last month, the Vortex “store within a store” has been set up.
Lots of hats
I picked up that multi-cam one with glowing logo
Vortex is expanding their apparel line and I was surprised to see their new socks.
As I mentioned last time, the Canadian Historical Arms Museum has a rotating in-store display….my favourites were the Grease Gun
And FN Minimi
Of course those are not for sale but this Mauser C96 Broomhandle is…for $10,000!
I picked up a copy of the latest High Capacity but left it in the store…all the more reason for me to go back soon!
So I went to Bulls Eye North’s new store today (sorry no pics…I will be back in a few weeks for a review) and as I typically do, I like to visit multiple stores in one day. It was a great reason to go back to Select to pick up the magazine I forget there last week and also to check if that new product line (not sure it is public) came in yet. Plus of course it is always great to visit Dean and Tracey.
A few new things came in since last week, notably the Winchester Wildcat, which is their take on a 10/22 with some notable innovations.
Ambidextrous mag release…and there are a couple of options for everything
It uses the same mags as a 10/22
But the whole group is removable (cool how the bolt rotates out of the way), allowing you to clean the gun from the chamber end.
The Ruger American Ranch takes AR15 mags and these are flying off the shelves everywhere
The Vortex AMG red dot has been upgraded quite a bit…now compatible with night vision (and specialy coated so as not to be detectable by night vision from the other end), tool-less opening of the battery compartment and numerous other enhancements
Finally the Bog Deathgrip tripod…a great option for precision shooters at a very reasonable price.
You can never have too much fun at a gun store lol
