Only The Best | Staff’s Favorite Gear – April 2021

Our store is filled with a lot of different gear and training courses. So the other day, my boss Jacob asked all the Concealed Carry employees to let him know what their favorite item in the store was.

The responses covered a wide variety of products. So I have decided to post everyone's picks here for you to see. Which products do you have and use? Who's gear choice do you agree with most?

LaserDot Laser Training Cartridge

I love my SIRT laser training pistol. However, being able to shoot a laser from my everyday carry (EDC) gun has incredible value. This has made my dry fire practice with LASR X and Mantis Laser Academy even better. I can't think of any reason not to use one for dry fire.

MMM Yellowstone Trauma Kit

As a man that's always outdoors and on the go, the Yellowstone is my go-to trauma kit for tossing in a blind bag or the truck. The second would be Pig Lube. Every gun owner needs a good quality lubricant that they can depend on no matter the circumstances. Pig Lube has run flawlessly on my guns, even in sub-zero temps.


RangeTech Bluetooth Shot Timer

The RangeTech Shot Timer; it's the product that I use the most, and it enhances my practice sessions allowing me to see my most important metrics at a glance plus compare them directly to other runs.


Range Ruck Range Backpack

There is no substitute for a dedicated range bag and the Range Ruck Handgun backpack is the perfect bag for trips to the range. It's big enough for all my gear, very durable, and also really comfortable to hike with when you want to get off the beaten path. One of my favorite features is the built-in rain cover that keeps my gear out of the elements.


Ready Up Gear Concealed Carry Messenger Bag

The messenger bag in tandem with the Yellowstone Trauma Kit is an essential piece of my EDC. I use it everyday and it goes with me everywhere. It has all the components I need to keep my on-the-go lifstyle organized by utilizing sturdy pockets, molle webbing, hook & loop, clips and zippers.

16340 USB Rechargeable Batteries 2Pk

I have picked the 16340 rechargeable batteries. With the different flashlights I use, it has been nice not to have to worry how many batteries I had left and in turn saving money immidiately.


SoftSeal Gel Ear Pads

The SoftSeal Gel Ear Pads are much more comfortable than the pads that come standard on a set of Leights, Peltors, or Walkers. These are a must-have item for extending training sessions.


Wilderness Tactical Basic Pocket Mag & TQ Pouch

If you carry the tools to make holes, you need to carry the tools to patch holes. This carry method makes it easier to keep a TQ on you with spare ammo, because the best battlefield medicine is fire superiority.

GunVault NanoVault

I'm a big advocate of securing my firearms. The GunVault NanoVault is the perfect way to secure your handgun.


Mantis X

MantisX is one of the most fun and simple ways I can think of practicing dry fire. I love the metrics it provides instantly, along with audible feedback. You can set it up and practice in seconds, save your data, and get feedback on how to improve your shooting.


Roger 22 Ear Muffs

Roger 22 Ear Muffs are extremely comfortable and their performance meets, if not exceeds, all of the other electronic ear muffs on the market. They are reliable, the switch is easy to operate and their low profile design makes them perfect to throw in your range bag.

EDC Belt CO Foundation Belt

The foundation Belt exceeds expectations. I'm a belt snob and I've been through a lot of belts. Until the Foundation Belt, I didn't realize how much comfort I was giving up with all the traditional gun belts I had used. Now I get the functionality needed from a gun belt, but with the comfort that only the EDC Belt Co Foundation Belt can provide.


There ya have it, folks. Tell us what your favorite product in our store is and why in the comments.
