A.
Designed specifically for use in snub-nose revolvers, Federal Premium Personal Defense HST Micro 38 Special +P provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance with projectile weights and clean-burning, low-flash propellants optimized for maximum efficiency. Expanded diameter and weight retention deliver the critical performance required for defensive encounters, while minimizing the risk of over-penetration. MSRP: $30.99 (box of 20) federalpremium.com

B. Improving the rapidity of reloads like a speedloader, but without the bulk, the Zeta6 J-Strip is made from a lightweight but durable polyurethane that orients cartridges in single row to minimize printing through clothing. The two-two-one spacing allows the loading of two cartridges at a time, and the thin design flexes easily, providing the ability to top off one or two chambers at a time without dumping live rounds. Best of all, it fits most five-shot snubbies, including models from Rossi, Smith & Wesson, Taurus and older Charter Arms variants. MSRP: $9.95 (pack of two) zetasix.com

C. Features like an exposed backstrap and panels that do not extend past the frame help VZ Grips’ S&W J-Frame Boot Grip - VZ 320 maximize concealment. Miniscule mill marks remain in the laminate and are left unpolished to provide added purchase and aesthetic appeal. Choose from four different colors, and the T-15 screw is included. MSRP: $75; vzgrips.com

D. Compatible with J-frames with pinned front sights, XS Sights’ Big Dot Tritium Yellow Front Sight features a bright, easy-to-see yellow front ring surrounding a tritium ampule that draws the eye instinctively to the front post. Installation involves drifting out the pin, removing the OEM assembly and using the included epoxy to anchor the new assembly into place. Minor gunsmithing is required for installation. MSRP: $73; xssights.com 

E. In addition to an ambidextrous IWB design, the Phlster City Special Revolver Holster features a reload cut, allowing the holster to be used as a platform to reload your Smith & Wesson J-frame with a single hand in the event of incapacitation. The TuckStrut provides variable grip positioning to reduce printing, while adjustable ride height and a snap loop facilitate a customizable fit. MSRP: $79.99; phlsterholsters.com
