1. Designed with adaptability in mind, CrossBreed Holsters’ MaxSlide outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster features extra belt slots that allow you to carry your mid-size wheelgun, either behind the strong-side hip with a slight forward cant or at a reverse cant for crossdraw access. It’s available for the EAA Windicator, Ruger GP100, the Smith & Wesson Governor (including select K-frames) and the Taurus Judge. MSRP: $58.50 crossbreedholsters.com

2. A radical departure from traditional offerings, the uniquely ergonomic design found in Ergo Grips Delta Grip promotes a more natural point-of-aim. Large, textured wraparound rubber panels contain a hard polymer core, which fill the hand and help disperse the negative effects of felt recoil across a wider area. It is available for J-frames and the Ruger LCR. MSRP: $26.75 ergogrips.net

3. Harnessing the haste of a speedloader without the bulk, Tuff Products’ QuickStrips orient cartridges in a row to minimize printing. Their thin design flexes easily, allowing the ability to quickly top off the cylinder with one or more chambers without dumping live rounds. Best of all, they are available in a variety of calibers, colors and capacities. MSRP: $9.45 (pack of two) tuffproducts.com

4. The first laser trainer to fit centerfire handguns—including snubbie revolvers like the Smith & Wesson J-frame, Ruger LCR and Taurus M85 pistols, the LaserLyte Laser Trainer Premium combines the proven training features of the LT-PRO with a brand-new on/off switch to conserve battery life. A tool-less, barrel-diameter adjustment allows it to easily fit nearly any pistol. MSRP: $120.95 laserlyte.com

5. Capable of accepting a 1.75-inch belt, the Galco 2X2X2 Ammo Carrier holds six cartridges separated into pairs for easy, fumble-free access. Available colors for
this steerhide carrier include black or tan. MSRP: $47.95 galcogunleather.com
