ESS Avenger Gunpack

The good news is, today’s on the go lifestyle lets us work from almost anywhere. The bad news is, that means we need to have more with us than just the usual wallet, keys, and defensive firearm. An EDC bag, or everyday carry bag, lets you keep the chargers, cords and whatnot to stay in touch when you’re on the go in one small, inconspicuous bag.

The Avenger GunPack by Elite Survival Systems is ideal for this sort of thing. It has the pockets and attachment points you need to store the bits and pieces of your everyday life, without lugging around a suitcase with you everywhere you go. The GunPack is built with a pocket for the off-body carry of a defensive pistol and also has a front pocket for carrying gear and accessories. 

The Avenger GunPack is designed by ESS to be carried with the handle, over the shoulder with the provided strap, or on belts such as the Elite Survival Systems CO Shooter's Belt. It features MOLLE straps for adding in more pouches or gear and is built from rugger 1000 denier nylon.

For me, one of the many bonuses of this gunwriter business has been the opportunity to meet and become friends with a number of the firearm enthusiasts of an earlier generation; legendary figures such as Frank Hamer Jr., Bill Jordan, Bill Toney, Col Walter Walsh and the subject of this column: COL Rex Applegate.
