Before you head to the woods with a handgun, make sure you have the accessories needed to make your hunt a success.
For starters, you’ll need a good holster, something such as the Uncle Mike’s Side- kick shoulder holster ($47.95), which allows you to easily carry a large, scoped handgun. A bipod or tripod is also an essential, and I like RLD-2 adjustable models ($64.99), which are light enough to carry all day and offer firm support.
Handguns produce serious noise and muzzle blast, so I like Sport- EAR’s new Ghost Stryke hearing protection ($499), which allows you to hear every movement in the woods but blocks excessive noise when firing. Shooting hard-kicking magnums can be tough on your hands, so a pair of gloves such as Cabela’s Men’s Leather Handgun Gloves ($34.99) make it that much more comfortable.
