Smith & Wesson M&P C.O.R.E.

Smith & Wesson has taken a huge share of the polymer pistol market in recent years, and the Pro Series C.O.R.E. is a direct reflection of that success.

Designed specifically for competition with its slide cut to accept optics and extended sight radius, the M&P Pro C.O.R.E is an ideal option for USPSA and 3-gun matches. As with all Smith & Wesson firearms, the Pro C.O.R.E. is made in the United States and backed by a lifetime service policy.

Price: $729

Real Avid Gun Tool

The Real Avid Gun Tool has become hugely popular, and for good reason. They collect all the tools you'll need to work on a firearm and pack them into one convenient package. Real Avid is also offering specialized versions — such as the Ruger Gun Tool, packed with the tools you'll need to disassemble/clean any Ruger firearm. You can find them just about everywhere online, with various versions selling for specific applications.

Price: $17 to $30

Sneaky Pete Holsters

Sneaky Pete holsters are made of high-quality soft leather or ballistic nylon (pictured), and they resemble a cell phone case when worn on the belt. Each holster is designed for a specific handgun model, and each holster uses two magnets to stay closed. The opening is made in such a way that a finger cannot accidentally be placed on the trigger during draw. A Kydex insert ensures a smooth, silent draw, and a sewn belt clip can accommodate a belt up to 1.75 inches wide. Holsters can be ordered either with the belt clip or a belt loop.

Price: $54.95 (black or brown leather); $64.95 (black or brown alligator pattern); $39.95 (black ballistic nylon)

Bullpup Unlimited Shotgun Conversion Kit

Turn that old Remington 870 Express into a compact, tactical workhorse with the Bullpup Unlimited Shotgun Conversion Kit. Simply drop the action components from an 870 into the stock, and shorten the overall length down to 28 inches. The kit features Picatinny rails at several postions for attaching optics and vertical grips. It also includes familiar AR-15 controls for intuitive weapon manipulation.

Price: $359

Troy Micro BattleSights FDE

Micro BattleSights from Troy Industries were designed as a low-profile sight option for firearms with top rails higher than the standard M4. The sights are made from hardened 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, and function as primary or backup sights. Now available in flat dark earth (FDE), Troy sights are made in America and come with a lifetime guarantee.

Price: $199 (set of front & rear)

SureFire Magazines

When standard 30-round G.I. magazines won't cut it, SureFire 60- and 100- round magazines are just the ticket to keep you throwing rounds downrange. Compatible with all M4/M16/AR-15 variants, their simple design allows for field disassembly with no special tools required. The mags are constructed from anodized aluminum, with steel springs and a tough polymer follower to feed rounds reliably with no lubricants required.

Price: $159 (60-round); $199 (100-round)

MTM Survivor Can

The new three-piece, bucket-style MTM Case-Gard Survivor Ammo Can stores ammunition, handguns and survival gear safely and securely underground. Completely waterproof/weatherproof, the can uses a double O-ring seal and a unique protective cap, which drains water away from the O-rings and acts as a vacuum seal. The can holds up to 600 rounds of .45 ACP — or 500-plus rounds per handgun — and comes with a Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor plastic bag liner and a desiccant pack. Inside dimensions are 12.4 inches high with a diameter of 7 inches.

Price: $29.99

A-TACS Camo TUFF1 Gun Grip Cover

Now available in camo color and a variety of textures, TUFF1 Gun Grip Covers offer exceptional grip performance for recreational shooters, everyday carry and military and law enforcement personnel. TUFF1 grips install on a variety of pistol grip firearms, from handguns to rifles. Their grips add form and function without adding weight or bulk.

Price: $16.95

DuraCoat Aerosol

DuraCoat Aerosol makes it quicker and easier than ever to apply a rugged new finish to your guns. The aerosol can eliminates the measuring and mixing of original DuraCoat, while still providing the same rugged protection against rust, corrosion, salt water and UV rays. The coating comes in a variety of colors, and can be applied to bare metal, Parkerizing, anodizing, wood and plastic. Each can provides enough coating for 2-4 firearms, with no baking or preheating required.

Price: $34.95/can
