    1000 .223 tracer bullets – $125

    What the deal is:

    These are air pulled (no tool marks) 62gr red tip bi-metal jacketed rounds with intact, covered bases. They are “Dim Light” tracers, glowing a dark red that ignites after about 50-70 yards and stays lit past 800.

    Please, please, please know your local laws and your local ground conditions before using these. Tracers are fun, but we’ve all heard one too many stories about some idiot shooting them into trees during a dry spell and starting a forest fire.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Tracers tend to run a little pricey, so being able to reload your own is a big help. Using these if my math is right you should be able to get tracer rounds for about 17 cents per. Not bad considering that buying new tracers tends to run closer to two times that much, and sometimes more.

    Mayflower Assault Plate Carrier Black large/xl – $164.52

    What the deal is:

    Midway USA is selling the Mayflower Assault Plate Carrier (APC), and it’s on sale in black L/XL sizes. The Mayflower APC is a rock-solid offering from a high-quality manufacturer. It comes with an integrated kangaroo pouch for up to three M4-sized magazines. Additionally, it has a cummerbund for 6″x6″ side plates, and the main pouches can accommodate stand-alone, ICW ESAPI or Swimmer cut plates. Before anyone jokes about Tacticool Timmy, there’s plenty of good reasons to have one of these. Not the least of which is I want everyone to think about the last time they were at a public range and didn’t get muzzle flagged by somebody. Yeah.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Not on sale, these run $224, so you’re saving $60. It’s not a red-hot must-buy holy shit sale, but it’s a good product at a reasonable price, and that’s what these lists are for.

    Magnetic ammo can stencils – $1.65

    What the deal is:

    Including such hits as the “SEND IT” stencil, and the “REEEEE” stencil, comes even more stencils. Labeling your ammo cans is just good sense, but these stencils are a fun way to make them look nice and uniform and to do so with a sense of humor. The list includes just about every currently selling standard caliber, as well as some just fun ones. My personal favorite is “FREEDOM SEEDS.”

    Why it’s a good deal:

    While you could use these as stand-alone labels, they are intended to be stencils. Buy one, label half a dozen ammo cans. There’s a full refund guarantee if you don’t like them, and they’re not exactly going to break the bank.

    CZ P-10C compact 9mm – $369.22

    What the deal is:

    Honestly, this is probably one of my favorite compact striker-fired polymer pistols. Which sounds like a more limited selection than it really is. I like these more than any Glock I’ve ever handled (which is going to get me some hate I know). These are not the updated 2019 model, which means Gen1 trigger, and no reversible mag release (just an ambi one). But it is a fun, easy gun to shoot, and works great as a CC choice.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    These have sold for less previously and with the release of the new generation (SKU 91531), the price will likely drop further in the future. However, right now, it’s lower than any of the other retailers I looked at, which are all selling for somewhere in the realm of $400. So if you’re looking for a well priced CC option that (in my opinion) handles better than most Glocks (and for less), this is the one to buy.
