Reader’s Choice BEST Overall Accessory: SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Stabilizing Brace

    For the month of April, we challenged our readers with a pretty broad category for the Reader’s Choice by asking you what is the “BEST Overall Accessory for a Rifle, Shotgun, or Pistol.” We received appropriate criticism that the category is indeed very broad which we will not disagree with. We at TFB slightly enjoy pushing your buttons and challenging you as much as you enjoy busting our chops. This month, we will have to admit, that you got the best of us. While the winner of the SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Stabilizing Brace might not come as a surprise (which we will explain later) take a good hard look at the #3 position that is a direct result of you guys and gals; our readers. So without further ado, the final results for April’s “Reader’s Choice: BEST Overall Accessory for a Rifle, Shotgun or Pistol” are…

    1. SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Stabilizing Brace
    2. Magpul PMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3
    3. Tac Sac Accessory Rail Grip
    4. Trijicon RMR Type 2 (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) Sight
    5. SureFire X300 Ultra LED Weaponlight

    In previous months of voting, we have seen write-in nominations to polls crack the Top 10, but we have never seen a reader suggestion break the Top 3 like it did this month. This month we do not have the raw percentages or a larger list like a Top 10 to provide to you because our Poll went funky on us (probably hacked by Russians). So our apologies for that! We appreciate you engaging in our monthly Reader’s Choice polls and growing along with us as we learn and expand this all out.

    All of the products except for maybe #3 we would assume our readers are familiar with or have at least heard. All are good products, strong warranties, and are very versatile to the platforms of a pistol, rifle or shotgun. The SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Stabilizing Brace winning should not really come as a surprise. With the exploding growth of AR Pistols and products like the Mossberg Shockwave which accept braces, the SB Tactical SBA3 Brace is the most popular one in the industry to make shooting easier on those platforms.

    For those who are unfamiliar with what the Tac Sac Accessory Rail Grip is (as if the name of the product was not enough imagery for you already), it is essentially a tactical scrotum you can hang onto similar to a vertical grip. If you ever feel like you cannot firmly manipulate your weapon system and if only you had something substantial to hang onto, just remember back to April’s Reader’s Choice poll where all you crazy gun toters suggested this lovely thing. Against all odds, it awkwardly climbed its way from our Comments section into the #3 spot. So congrats to the Tac Sac.

    When we run the Reader’s Choice every month what can be more entertaining than the results you guys and gals create through your voting is your side commentary. This month was no exception. Let’s dive into some of the more cringe-worthy, feelings-triggering, and hilarious comments you all posted!

    A tactical black thingy. -Ned2

    Just like our poll for this month’s Reader’s Choice, your Comment is pretty broad and vague so we cannot really say you are wrong, but we cannot say your opinion is truly right either.

    I ‘m going to go with ammo for 1000, Alex. -Derfelcadarn

    For one thing, I hope that username is an inside joke because that is some serious alphabet soup going on. For number two, Trebek got back to us and said, “What is a good response?”


    -Scott K

    Well, how are you gonna be tacti-cool if you do not throw some type of accessory on your firearm?! C’mon man!

    Probably the pistol brace, they’ve single handedly shredded the SBR portion of the NFA.


    That is a very true point you are making, but based on your username, I am appalled you did not vote for the Tac Sac.

    RMR. It enhances all three systems. Can’t be said of too many other accessories. Lights next. -Ken

    Very fair observation. I personally own a Trijicon RMR and use it on an EDC Glock so I would be a hypocrite to say you were wrong.

    The best accessory any gun can get is a good shooter. -4444

    Bazinga! If only you could use all of your hard-earned money to actually buy yourself into becoming a good shooter (practice, practice, practice).


    Do you want to summon an Operator Reeves? Because that is how you summon one.


    These two back-to-back Comments win our informal award for “Best Troll Comments.” Your prize is the self-satisfaction that you have achieved a new level of trolling enlightenment, and we appreciate you.

    Blamethrower -Russ Kell

    A lot of follow-up Comments followed this one, most of which related to the idea that our politicians are extremely proficient in using this mystical weapon.

    NcStar blue laser. It doesn’t have cadillac features such as being able to turn off completely, but it’s pretty and cheap. -Edeco

    I think you might be getting sued by Cadillac soon for having used their likeness in the same Comment referencing NcStar…

    The best accessory? Maybe a gun-loving wife. -Emfourty Gasmask

    We are supposed to be making suggestions of things that actually exist man. C’mon, get with the program!

    One of those chainsaw bayonets and unlimited clip magazine that fires 100 rounds per second. -NukeItFromOrbit

    It was painful to read this Comment because either you are the world’s greatest troll or you have a really bad understanding of firearms. We will give you the benefit of the doubt that that is some top-notch troll work.

    I would say, a functioning brain, but this is the internet. -Marc

    You are asking for a bit much Marc, don’t ya think?
