PDN LIVE! April 2017

Rob Pincus spoke live from the new Cape Gun Works store and range in Massachusetts, and answered a plethora of questions about accessories for defensive firearms. Rob discussed the most important and popular accessories for both pistols and rifles, including sights, red dot optics, sling, magazine extensions, charging handles, lights, and lasers. Rob gave his opinions, based on having seen thousands of students with both good and bad gear over a couple of decades. He shared some “must haves”, some solid “could be a good ideas”, and a couple “probably not what you want” tips when it comes to his advice for upgrading and improving your defensive arsenal.

    Your talking about iron sites with red dots and green dots etc. and it looks like the iron sites are on top of the devise instead of the original iron sites on the guns. Question are these iron sites on the devise or over the gun iron sites?

    What are your thoughts on aftermarket stippling and frame mods for handguns....agency or salient designs come to mind as an example.

    I carry an Ar-15 in my trunk always. I would like you to comment on any ideas that you have to affordably "chain" or "cable" it to a steel hole in the trunk. I am only trying to protect from a "smash and grab". My gun is out of sight and no one knows it is in there. It there a ready to use product out there? I don't wish to custom build something? Any thoughts? Annie Arizona, USA

    Do you like a 2 point sling or a one point sling? Is it better to just have a light mounted on your Carbine or in your hand?
