4 Must-Have Concealed Carry Upgrades


Honestly, you needn’t get a trigger job on your pistol or break out your wood burning kit to stipple its grips to upgrade your carry rig. There are plenty of down-to-earth, sober options that will make you a more efficient armed citizen and the whole process a load easier. To boot, most of them fall within any shooter’s price range and will end up being money well spent. With that in mind, here are 4 Must-Have Concealed Carry Upgrades that are certain to enhance going armed.

Spare Ammo

If you carry concealed, you should carry spare ammunition. This isn’t as simple as it sounds, because you aren’t just throwing a few extra rounds in your pocket and calling it good. You need to have it easily accessible and ready to manipulate when you have a tanker load of adrenaline pumping through your veins. This is an easier problem to solve for those who carry semi-automatics with much more clandestine magazine carry options. For those who want to carry at the beltline, Alien Gear has a slick system in its Cloak Mag Carriers. The units can be carried inside and outside the waistband. The single can even be set at a cant to run perpendicular to the belt itself. But there are some intriguing pocket magazine holsters from SnagMag (pictured above) and ExtraCarry that keep spare ammo at hand, while breaking up the profile of the magazine. Extra rounds for revolver shooters can be a bit trickier. Wheelgunners are still stuck with speedloaders, pouches and Bianchi Speedstrips. None of them are ideal, due to size or reload speed, but they’ll do the job.
