Guns & Gear

This is a sampling of products that have worked well for us and our customers. “What’s in your pocket?” Let us know.

Handguns


If you think you have to sacrifice knock-down power and ammunition capacity in a concealed carry pistol, think again. While subcompact semi-autos traditionally utilize single-stack magazines with limited six- to seven-round capacity, Sig somehow engineered a double-stack mag for the new P365 subcompact pistol that holds ten 9 mm rounds. An optional 12-round mag is also available!

 
The Smith & Wesson M&P Shield is a popular choice for concealed carry, and shoots like a large-frame pistol.

 
.22 caliber pistols are not the best choice for a “take-down” defense weapon, but new shooters will find them very easy to handle – ten .22 rounds on the target is always better than zero higher caliber rounds!


The Glock 17 is a solid go-to pistol for home defense.


The Sig Sauer P238 is as good as a .380 caliber firearm gets! It’s also available in 9 mm (P938).

 
Ruger makes great revolvers. This Redhawk features an 8-round cylinder.
