We (TRUE BLUE) met Fred Pellegrino at the 2019 Shot Show where he introduce himself and what he was putting together as TACCOM Canada. I early March we received a follow up email asking if we were interested in attending. From the good information on the web site and seeing some of the early signed exhibitors it was enticing.


In late 2018 we had signed on a Canadian Distributor, Alpha Zone Group in BC, and thought attending TACCOM Canada was a great opportunity to introduce TRUE BLUE Gun Lubricants to a broader audience and a region they had not marketed in yet. So we said yes.

We could not be happier with the TACCOM staff, attendance, the quality of Exhibitors and location. We were excited as we picked up 3 new dealers at the show, saw a dealer who was an exhibitor we met at Shot Show last year as well, met several other prospective dealers and manufacturers. All very important. Being able to sell our product, sale were much better then expected, allowed us the opportunity to started building a customer base which will trickle down to our dealers. Growing our dealer network is critical to our growth and want to support them as much as possible!


TRUE BLUE Gun Lubricants is attending 2020 TACCOM thanks to the success, experience, the potential to grow and the growth of the show with more exhibitors which will draw in more attendees.


Well done Fred and crew!


Shadow Systems was founded in 2016, in Plano, Texas, USA. The company started out making parts for upgrades and building customized pistols, and in 2018 launched their own production pistol built entirely from the ground up, the MR918. The MR918 was designed to be a multi-role gun, with a compact size, every premium feature, and an unmatched price-point.


The design team at Shadow Systems is made up of combat veterans, former law enforcement, and competitive shooters; they leveraged their lifetime of shooting knowledge and combined it with everything they had learned during Shadow’s years working on customizing guns to develop the most feature rich production polymer pistol on the market. Coming from their backgrounds in carry weapons for duty usage, the Shadow team places reliability and accuracy as the most important aspect of everything they create. Therefore, every gun and part is held to the highest standard, meant to be used and abused, and backed by a 5-year warranty and top-tier customer service team.

The MR918 was first released to the public at the 2019 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. It was at this show that the Shadow team met the team from TACCOM. It was clear from that first introduction that a future partnership was on the horizon and that the Canadian market was ready for what Shadow Systems is building.


Shadow Systems is proud to be associated with the largest Canadian firearms distributor and excited about providing the Canadian marketplace with top quality pistols. Explore the Shadow Systems product line at or follow them @shadowsystemscorp on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.
