With the holiday season winding down and the new year upon us, there is a chance that you got a brand-new gun or bow for one reason or the other. It could be because your hunting season didn’t go the way you’d planned, and you vowed to replace the problem rifle, or your family put a big red bow on a hunting bow for you. Either way, we’re not here to judge.
Here are a few things that you may have overlooked on your list to help you get those new toys operating to full potential, so you aren’t eating tag soup this time next year:
The Garmin Xero has changed the game for chronographs. What once was awkward and bulky now fits in your pocket. 100-5000 fps for everything; arrows, slugs, and magnum loads. 6 hours of battery life gives you plenty of time to dial that load in at the range. The ShotView app even records your data shot by shot to be sure you have all the info to make changes to your setup. If you’ve been waiting to buy a chrono, it is time to pull the trigger.
Maybe this is your first Glock, maybe you have one in every closet like Grandma’s moth balls. Either way you know that Glocks aren’t known for their crisp, clean triggers, but they go bang every time so there is something to be said for that. To help solve the griminess in your GEN 3 and 4 Glock trigger, Timney offers their Alpha lined of triggers. Timney is known for their excellent triggers and the Alpha is no different. Your Glock will thank you the first time you go to the range.
he SIG P365x has quickly become one of the best-selling compact handguns on the market and with good reason. With up to 12+1 rounds of 9mm in a package barely bigger than your hand is impressive and makes for a reliable, comfortable EDC pistol. Shark Coast Tactical has found a way to make your P365x stand out from the crowd with their Custom Cerakote Grip Module featuring a modified pic rail, double undercuts and in integrated thumb rest all covered by a Samurai mural that looks as good as this frame feels in the hand.
When it comes to gunsmithing tools, Real Avid has quickly taken their seat at the workbench. With their reasonably priced huge selection of kits for both rifles and pistols, the basement gunsmith has a new ally and their name is Real Avid. This hammer and punch set has several interchangeable heads and includes 12 punches in a single package. Unless you’re getting into home remodeling, this hammer should take care of everything your gun bench needs.
