Grashorn Gunworks Elk Grips
One of the great advantages of most revolvers and the 1911 platform is the ability to dress them up with whatever style of grips you like. And, if you’re like most gun owners, you’re going to like a set of American elks from Grashorn Gunworks. These scales offer the classic look of stag without the extreme expense of Sambar imports, and they’re made right here in the U.S. Stop by GrashornsGunworks.com for more info on handgun grips, knife handles, dog chews and more.

Cheeterz Pre-Filled Speedloaders
When you combine American frugality and ingenuity, you get the Cheeterz ammo system. Its inventor disliked that plastic ammo trays in boxes of factory-loaded ammunition just got thrown out, so he found a better way to use that resource. Cheeterz serves as both the in-box organization system for the rounds as well as a speedloading system and ships as a box of three 15-round strips. Check out a demo video at Cheeterz.com.
Carrying revolver reloads can be challenging, both in discreetly concealing the ammunition and in rapidly deploying it. The 6061 aluminum RASC (Revolver Ammunition Strip Concealment) device from NeoMag attaches to your speed strip and allows you to carry a spare gunload indexed in your pocket and at the ready. It is available in .38/.357 and .44 at TheNeoMag.com.
