5 Most Practical Gun Accessories

Have you recently purchased a firearm for the first time, or are you considering making a purchase in the coming days? If so, you have a big decision ahead of you. There are many different types of guns out there, and it’s important to take a variety of factors into consideration when choosing the right one for your needs. But even after you decide on a firearm, you’ll still have to decide what gun accessories you want. There are a wide variety of accessories from which you can choose. Here are five of the most practical.

1. Extra Magazines

It’s easy to overlook the need for extra magazines when you’re new to firearms. However, any seasoned firearm enthusiast will explain that having a backup magazine is a good idea. Keep in mind that it takes time to fill a magazine back up with ammunition, and you may not have the luxury of time in some situations. Having an extra, loaded magazine on hand can help ensure that you have the firepower you need, right when you need it. An extra magazine can also help you save time at the shooting range.

2. Holsters

Before you walk out of a gun or sporting goods store with a new firearm, make sure you have a reliable holster to carry it in. Gun safety should be your top priority, whether you conceal carry or open carry. Don’t waste your gun on a cheap cloth holster, either. The point of a holster is to secure your firearm and prevent you from accidentally pulling the trigger.

Flimsy cloth won’t give you the protection you need. Instead, opt for a hard holster that makes it impossible to accidentally discharge your firearm while it’s holstered or while you’re removing it from the holster. You should also make sure the holster you choose is specifically designed for your gun’s make and model. Otherwise you may not get the snug, secure fit you want. Talk to your gun dealer if you need any help choosing a holster that’s secure and comfortable.

3. Ammunition

This may seem obvious, but you might be surprised to discover that many people who own guns don’t have extra ammunition.  It can be confusing to choose the right ammunition for your needs, but it’s an important step in gun ownership. Consult with your gun dealer if you don’t know enough about grain, caliber or bullet type to choose the right bullets for your firearm. Then, purchase at least a couple of boxes of your chosen type of ammunition so you have it on-hand when you need it.

4. Storage Solutions

A gun safe is expensive, but it’s a necessity when you own one or more guns. If you just have one small firearm, you can opt for a small, shoebox-sized safe. But keep in mind that unless you secure it to the wall or floor somehow, a thief could easily make off with it. Larger safes provide more security and are more difficult to steal. They also offer more room, so you can potentially grow your gun collection and keep all your firearms safely stored out of reach of young hands.

5. Gun Cleaning Kit

If you want your gun to perform smoothly and reliably, you need to clean it frequently. Neglecting this step could lead to misfires. A quality gun cleaning kit is well worth the investment. Most kits last a while and don’t have to be replaced too frequently.

My name Kris A. Zimmer and e-mail address of: zimmr@mchsi.com. I would like to know how I can login to your website to check on my orders plus what other gear you have you might have that I just might need for my firearms. You carry a lot of items that I have been used, such as Laser Devices in Monteray, CA became very good engineer friends with him, disigned many things that unfortunately because of his health he had to sell his business instead. I own exclusively one of Walthers straight from Deutchland and the last as well as the oldest running Walther factory. Just south of Nüremberg by about 86 kilometers where I used to live in Nüremberg. I can’t find my order of different tac rings for mounting tac lights to laser plus some other stuff you had as extra buys and I just can’t seem to find that order and you have the exact rings that I need to mount the Surefire G2 Tac light to my Laser Devices red dot military high power laser that works great on my Walther P99 with the decker plus the hot swappable 9m x 21m barrel in less than 5 seconds that use the same 16 and 20 round double stack mags because the 9m x 21m bullets use the Winchester win bullets so no problem with having to to carry two separate types of mags. But I really need your help on finding that order and if for some reason it did not go through please get with me soI can get e-mailed that offer as soon as possible. THANK YOU!!!
