While I understand why people make up lists for the “x” best “armaments or equipment,” it is important to always remember that the single best thing you can get is training.
“The best gun to win a gunfight with is the one in your hands” is what Evan Marshall says.

They may curse you for the former and bless you for the latter, but make no mistake, it’s not the gun or equipment doing the work, it’s the training they received and the dedication they put into mastering any new tool or equipment they are issued.

Please do support the industry with your time and money, it will spur further innovations we all can all use.f you are lucky, you will find a tool or equipment that is worthy of joining or replacing something in your carry kit.
If you are lucky, you will find a tool or equipment that is worthy of joining or replacing something in your carry kit.
But while you do, just remember that it’s your training that will put you over the top and make you better, it’s not the tools and accessories themselves.
