A few of our favorite things….

Mantis X3

This is our FAVORITE tool! Seriously, the technology is nothing short of AMAZING. It is an investment but it will pay for itself in ammo savings.

10 minutes using the Mantis for dry fire at home a few times a week can give more improvement in your shooting than a $40+ trip the range ($20 for a lane plus $20+ for a 2 boxes of ammo).  It’s hard to improve your shooting when you don’t know exactly why you’re hitting where you hit. The Mantis shows you exactly what you are doing.

The Mantis X3 also works for live fire. So when you do go pay to shoot at the range, you can use this technology to get more value from your time and money. You’ll be able to analyze your shooting. (The Mantix X is about $20-$30 cheaper but doesn’t allow for live fire… I would highly recommend going for the X3!)

We sell the Mantis X3. We offer shipping for a fee. We also have the option to do pick-up at no charge. It’s also available to purchase from Amazon.

Get the MatisX and Start Hitting Bulleyes!

Buy the the best training tool on the market. This works for both pistols and rifles.

For each shot, MantisX detects the direction of the barrel movement during the trigger pull. If you tend to shoot left, left sector will light up on the wheel. After a few shots, the training device shows the pattern of your movement.

It teaches you how to fix your errors though videos and pictures with explanations.

Car Safe

Having a small safe like this for cars and hotel rooms is a must. Most of the time this safe is empty because I keep the gun on me. But when I need it, I need it. And that’s why I have one of these that lives in my car.

Alisha explains this safe more in a youtube video

This Bulldog brand safe with tether is a fantastic way to store your gun in your when you can’t take it into a building. Alisha and Kevin have been using it personally for over 6 years. We’ve sold hundreds of these to our students with no negative feedback.

Combination Bulldog Gun Car Safe

Dummy Training Cartridges

These are awesome for training for malfunctions and seeing visually shooting errors in real time. We really like orange ones because they are easy to find on the ground and aren’t confused with live cartridges.

Just like with cartridges, you’ll need to buy the one that is the same caliber as your gun. We stock the major handgun calibers: 380, 9mm, 40, 45, and 22 lr.

MagLula – UpLula Magazine Loader

This magazine loader makes loading even the hardest magazines simple. It might seem expensive but it will save your thumb and make loading magazine really easy and quick. 

This loader will work for 9mm to 45 AUTO. It can work on both single and double stack magazines. Although it isn’t advertized to work on 380 AUTO cartridges, we have found that it works for that caliber too. 


The Traveler’s Guide
