The Mongoose Quick on the Draw Buck 110 Speed Sheath
With millions of Buck 110s still in the field, there remains a strong aftermarket for 110 accessories — specifically sheaths. This model from QuickDrawKnifeSheath.com allows you to safely carry your 110 (or similar knife) horizontally on your belt partially deployed and to draw it into the locked position with a single pull from one hand. Made in Arizona and available left- and right-handed in black, chestnut, desert tan and brown, it’s the perfect addition to your EDC if you prefer to keep things classic.
Though vertical magazine carry makes for the most intuitive and quickest draws for most shooters, horizontal carry works out better physically for some concealed carriers. Magholders are American-made, ship with a lifetime warranty and are available in bullet-forward and bullet-to-the-rear configurations for the most popular models of SIG, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Springfield and Glock pistols at Magholder.com.
Elite Survival Systems Pocket Magazine Pouch
Pocket carry is appealing for many, especially when it comes to backup magazines. But as with a pistol or revolver, it is essential that ammunition be secured in a proper carrier. This pouch from Elite Survival Systems will keep your mag more secure against debris working its way into your backup ammo supply and will keep it consistently oriented in your pocket — which is indispensable for when you need to access it. You can get one at EliteSurvival.com.
NovX Engagement: Extreme
Copper-polymer projectiles are an excellent solution for areas in which the possession of expanding bullets is prohibited by law (though you will always need to check local listings, as they say). These lead-free 65-grain 9mm rounds from NovX allow for very high velocities out of a non-plus-P cartridge, and their high-nickel stainless steel cases reduce EDC weight while still maintaining reliability. You can learn more at NovXAmmo.com.
Securing a door is an essential component of any office security plan, and ensuring that a door will remain open is an essential component of firefighting, EMS and law enforcement work. But traditional wood and rubber wedges don’t always work as intended on carpeting — and most workplaces and residences have plenty of carpeting. “The Door Wedge” (TDW) from CountyComm is a high-strength fiberglass unit specifically designed to secure a door open or closed on a carpeted floor, and it is small enough to drop unobtrusively into a suitcase for truly locking down a hotel room. You can check out the video rundown at CountyComm.com.

Gun Storage Bags
Though placing a gun in a plastic bag was anathema to millions of Boomer-and-older gun owners, it’s how basically all manufacturers ship them now — and this is a beefed-up version of the treated bags in which they do so. Arms Preservations Inc. will sell you not only five-plus years of protection for your handguns and long guns but also ammo-can liners … and at prices that can make it a lot easier on your wallet than with other anti-rust measures. You can learn more about its vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) technology at APIGunBag.com.
