This unit combines a 500-lumen tactical light with a 1080p HD camera that records video and audio. It activates when it is drawn from the holster through its “Instant-On Technology” and can offer responsibly armed Americans the benefit of recording and preserving the evidence surrounding a self-defense incident.

XS Shield Big-Dot Sights

XS Big-Dot sights are easy to acquire in low-light conditions and greatly simplify combat shooting within the ranges typical of defensive gun use. This specific configuration, tailored to the Smith & Wesson Shield series, includes a bright-white rear “stick,” atop which you set the “lollipop” — a white-ringed green tritium lamp. Few sights are as fast on target within 50 feet or as simple to use in near-total darkness. Select yours at XSSights.com.

For volume shooting, it’s tough to beat. Order online at AmericanTactical.us.

Tango Down BG-AK Battlegrip

This aftermarket option for your AK-pattern rifle fulfills several very specific needs: It is a perfect American-made “compliance part” for assembling foreign-made kits, it’s far more ergonomic and comfortable than any factory grip, and it contains storage space for batteries, small tools or anything else shorter than a dollar bill is wide. It is available with the rest of the TangoDown line at TangoDown.com.

MSRP: $24.50
