Go West: Hand-Stitched ‘Samuel Walker’ Belt
Two layers of vegetable-tanned full-grain leather come together to form a 14-ounce American-made workhorse. The Samuel Walker is both rigid, offering excellent support for a sidearm and other EDC components, and thick, affording holster clips extra grip when compared to a thinner belt. Oh, and Molly’s is also something of an all-around cowboy (and cowgirl) shop; from custom trophy buckles to hood ornaments, the company can set you up with whatever you can imagine.

Apex Action Enhancement Kit
While this kit only reduces pull weight on your Glock pistol by a pound, the overall performance is not in the pull weight. It is in the reduction in the trigger’s pre-travel, overall travel and reset travel, which makes for a more controllable sidearm. You get a new trigger bar, an “Ultimate Safety Plunger” and an Apex “Performance Connector.”
The center-mounted pivoting safety on the trigger keeps your pistol’s safety system just as exacting and functional as it was when it left the factory, and this kit, as well as the “Failure Resistant Extractor” pictured at right, is available at ApexTactical.com.
Vedder Holsters LightTuck
This slim, minimalist holster includes a deep sight channel for even large night sights and is adjustable for a cant of -30 degrees to 30 degrees. You can rig it to be worn FBI-style, cross-draw or straight-drop anywhere from your 11 o’clock to your 4 o’ clock position.
It’s available in more than 60 configurations for more than two dozen manufacturers and for EDC sidearms with red-dot optics at VedderHolsters.com.
Geco AK Ammo
If you intend to reload for your AK-pattern rifle (and why wouldn’t you want to?), sourcing brass-cased, Boxer-primed ammunition is Step 1. These target FMJs from Geco are noncorrosive, and their cases are fully reloadable — sometimes a difficult combination to find for your AK.
You can buy them at your local gun shop or at Geco-Munition.de/en.html.
Bull Sheath Badge Wallet
American-made quality becomes even more important than usual when the item in question is going to be riding with you all day. The badge wallets available from Bull Sheath Leather are perfect for your law enforcement, corrections or fire-service credentials, and they’re artisan-made by hand in Texas.
You can order your bifold or trifold to your personal specifications at BullSheathLeather.com.
