Versacarry AIWB Comfort Flex Deluxe
The embedded polymer layer that prevents holster collapse after drawing is integrated into the water-buffalo-hide leather and, as shown here for the SIG P365, the result is a very handsome and stable platform from which to draw.
It is available for the most popular models, including the 365 and the Springfield Hellcat, in black or distressed brown at Versacarry.com.
M2 Ratcheting Tourniquet
We’re a long way from the days in which tourniquets were last-resort options that usually sacrificed a limb. With today’s advanced patient transport and trauma care, tourniquets are lifesavers that are far less likely to harm than to help, and every range bag should contain one.
These units from m2 Inc are self-locking and allow for finer adjustability than other ratcheting models, and they have the simple two-step instructions permanently printed on their nylon webbing. They are also available in multiple sizes, which is a boon for shooters who find themselves on varying ends of the all-too-common “one-size-fits-most” spectrum.
They are available in varying models for both the military and civilian markets (as well as dogs) at RatchetingBuckles.com.
MSRP: $35.95 and up
MTM Case-Gard Dual Gauge Shotshell Case
Those who own shotguns for defensive use all have one thing in common: They often end up with multiple five-round boxes of different defense-specific loads each missing two or three rounds. The solution for such a predicament is a box from MTM Case-Gard, specifically the version that is capable of handling 12- or 20-gauge rounds.
You can order online at MTMCase-Gard.com and get it in either smoke (pictured) or forest green.
Mission First Tactical AK Grip
For a long time, it seemed as if there were two options for an AK-pattern rifle grip: the giant one for people with giant hands, and the little tiny one that AKs always seem to ship with.
Mission First Tactical has bridged the gap between the two with its ENGAGE grip, an American-made unit with a watertight storage compartment, a curved backstrap and a grip angle that replicates that of the M16.
It is available in black, foliage green, gray and dark earth and can be had at MissionFirstTactical.com.
Federal Punch Ammo
These offerings from Federal Premium are designed specifically with the responsibly armed private citizen in mind. Their sealed primers and soft lead cores are tuned to the most common threats faced in everyday carry, and the projectile and powder charge balance wide expansion with penetration that is sufficiently deep for private-sector self-defense.
They are available in .38 Special +P, .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP at your local big-box store and at FederalPremium.com.
MSRP: $15.99–$20.99 / 20
Hanks Ranger Gun Belt
Hanks’ American-made belts have earned their way into these pages before, but the introduction of a ranger design merited another appearance.
The 1.5-inch width fits with most pants styles, and the mini roller buckle allows for easy on and off without the sticking often experienced with traditional buckles.
The 14-ounce full-grain steerhide will not crack or split, and the whole works ships with a 100-year warranty.
You can order yours in black or brown in sizes ranging from 32 to 60 at HanksBelts.com.
