5. Amazon — Lyman 8-Station Turret Press, $219.99
If you need a new press to load multiple pistol and rifle cartridge types, consider a turret. With their ability to hold multiple dies, turret presses offer great flexibility and efficiency. One of the best, reasonably-priced turrets on the market is the Lyman All American 8 Turret Press. Boasting EIGHT stations, this press hold up to four 2-die sets or eight individual dies. The press features a heavy-duty, cast-iron frame, plus a straight-line primer feed system with large and small primer tubes.
6. Brownells — iGaging Digital Micrometer, $65.99
For precision reloading, a micrometer is important. A micrometer offers greater resolution than calipers and is ideal for measuring certain cartridge and brass dimensions. If you’ve been wanting to get a precision micrometer without breaking the bank, check out the iGaging SpeedMic Quick Action Micrometer from Brownells. This high-quality micrometer is now 39% off, making it an affordable addition to your tool kit. Equipped with a data-output module, this SpeedMic micrometer enables precision measurements to be ported instantly to any computer.
7. Midsouth — Hornady RFID Rapid Access Gun Safe Sale
Gun safety is everyone’s responsibility and that starts with the gun owner. If you need an effective way to lock up your guns either at home or in your vehicle, check out the Hornady gun safe sale. For a limited time, you’ll find rapid access safes for the home, vehicle, or office at very good prices. NOTE, along with the handgun safes, Midsouth offers Hornady’s Rapid Access RFID AR GunLocker, which is great for home defense long guns. The wireless RFID technology allows you to instantly unlock the safe with a card or token you carry.
8. Amazon — Frankford Arsenal Hand Deprimer Tool, $39.99
Decapping brass can be a tedious, time-consuming, and messy chore. Simplify the task (and avoid messing up your reloading area) with the Frankford Arsenal Platinum Series Hand Deprimer Tool. This device lets you remove spent primers anywhere — no press needed and all the mess (cups/anvils/residue) stays in the capture chamber. You can deprime cases while watching TV. This tool features a Universal collet that works with all case types. With good leverage, this tool is easy on the hands too.
9. Palmetto State Armory — Taurus G3 Pistol, $279.99
Palmetto State Armory is running a great special on the Taurus G3 9mm pistol. Priced at just $279.99, this Taurus G3 costs less than HALF what most dealers charge for a compact Glock 9mm. The grip ergonomics are (in our opinion) much superior to the Glock (for most people), and the Taurus G3’s 6-lb. trigger is better than that of many compact 9mm pistols. The Taurus G3 is a dual-stack 9mm with 17+1 capacity. With a strong warranty, the Taurus G3 offers great value for the price.
10. Amazon — Allen Window and Fence Gun Rest Bag, $10.99
Sometimes you want to take a shot at a critter, but don’t have time to set up a shooting bench, a tripod, or a mat with bipod. With this simple bag you can make that varmint shot from the window of a vehicle. This cleverly-designed bag can also be used on a fence rail. The Allen Filled Window Mount Gun Rest is a great value at just $10.99. With its unique design you can easily flop it over just about anything to stabilize yourself or just lay it down flat on the floor. It features a textured top surface and non-slip bottom. It comes pre-filled with inert polyester beads.
