LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- Range day at SHOT Show 2020 was filled with the latest pistol technology from Glock to Springfield Armory, but the handgun that stood out this year was a Colt six-shooter that dominated the silver screen in the 1970s.

Navy senior leaders could decide whether or not to approve the new I-Boot 5 early in 2020, said Rob Carroll, director of the uniform matters office at the Chief of Naval Personnel's office.
"The I-Boot 5 is currently wrapping up its actual wear test, its evaluation," Carroll told Task & Purpose on Monday. "We're hoping that within the first quarter of calendar year 2020 that we'll be able to present leadership with the information that they need to make an informed decision."
