ALPS Outdoors Ghost 30
This expandable 30-liter backpack is a contribution to the concealed carry world from the hunting side of the firearms business.
With two padded laptop slots, multiple interior zippered pockets, a padded sunglasses compartment and an ambidextrous pistol pouch that can be fitted with your hook-and-loop holster of choice, it is an excellent option for both travel and “go-bag” use.
You can get yours at ALPSBrands.com.
This dimpled titanium “pill safe” (shown next to a 9mm round for scale) is just right for either ball chain or key ring use.
At only 0.23 ounces, its weight is negligible and will allow you to keep nitro pills, allergy tabs or other important meds at hand for when they’re needed.
You can order it (along with about a dozen other nifty little titanium EDC components) at CountyComm.com.
ExtraCarry Magazine Carrier
If you’re out of space on (or patience with) your belt, you can carry a spare magazine in your pocket disguised as a simple pocketknife.
ExtraCarry has options available for everything from micro .380s all the way up to double-stack 9mms and .45 Autos as well as a new Universal unit, and their modern design keeps the baseplates down out of sight where they belong.
You can order yours at ExtraCarry.com.
DeSantis DS Paddle
A day of training usually means lunch, and lunch often means leaving all firearms, holsters and magazine pouches in the range bag before hitting the diner.
A secure American-made paddle holster like this one from DeSantis is ideal for such a situation, as it is easily removed without having to unbuckle or unthread your belt.
You can buy yours at your local gun shop or through DeSantisHolster.com.
Real Avid Bore-Max
Removing the copper fouling from a rifle barrel is essential for good accuracy, but it’s also one of the more arduous aspects of rifle shooting.
This new foaming bore cleaner from Real Avid loosens copper deposits more quickly than traditional powder solvents and also ships in a convenient spray can (complete with flexible nozzle).
You can get it wherever you buy your gun-cleaning products and at RealAvid.com.
JM4 Tactical Relic OWB
This custom leather-and-Boltaron holster is ideal for outdoor use, as it allows you to securely carry a full-sized pistol with a light attached.
The clips are secure enough to offer crisp, fast draws but are also easily removed from a standard belt for when you need to “go cold.”
It is available right- or left-handed for dozens and dozens of handguns at JM4Tactical.com.
