Loading magazines can be a pain, especially during long days of class or competition. The UpLula from Maglula takes nearly all of the work out of loading, saving your fingers for wrapping your holiday presents. Virtually every shooter I know uses one, and it can be a thumb saver for those extended range sessions.

If you’ve sent more than a handful rounds down range in a short span of time, you know how hot the rail on an AR-15 can get. Adding some rail covers not only helps to avoid the heat, but can also improve your purchase on the gun, further stabilizing your position.

MagPod Base Plates
How many have heard the myth that using your magazine to stabilize your shooting position will induce malfunctions? Somehow, despite being long debunked, that still persists. One issue that can arise from this is the fulcrum created by the edge of your magazine. Luckily Mag-Pod has created base plates to remedy this problem. Providing a flat surface for you, Map-Pods successfully stabilize your shooting, and make taking Gucci pictures of your rifle a breeze.
If you’re carrying things that cause bleeding you should probably carrying things that stop bleeding. Not to mention you’re at a substantially higher likelihood of coming across a car crash or other accident causing life threatening injuries. I’ve carried a tourniquet concealed daily for nearly two years and it’s less obtrusive than my gun or even a spare magazine. Maybe one of these will help you make it to the next holiday season!

When shooting we get exposed to lead and other heavy metals, which in short, is bad for Washing with normal soap and water doesn’t do the job either. Hygenall’s LeadOff line works at the microscopic level, removing these contaminants from your skin. Not only that, but LeadOff products do more to keep your skin hydrate than traditional cleaners as well.
Range time, Youtube, and blogs (even ours!) can only take you so far. Sometimes you have to read physical books to take your training to the next level. Since books have existed long before any of these other mediums, there is a wide variety available. We’re working on our series of book reviews now, but here is a heads up on what we recommend.
