Welcome to TFB Weekly Amazon Deals 13. For the last couple of months, James over at TFBTV has been going through a pretty extensive series of videos centered around shotguns. Although perhaps slightly less favored than handguns or rifles for home defense or tactical situations, the shotgun is often the first thing many people gravitate towards when they are thinking of home defense solutions. This week for our TFB Amazon deals, I’ve gone through some of the items that James has mentioned in his videos and found some that happen to be on sale. I’ve also found a few other deals on aftermarket shotgun accessories for those looking to put together a budget home defense shotgun setup. If you haven’t seen any of the previously mentioned videos yet, I’ll link them down below. They are definitely worth checking out!

TFB Weekly Amazon Deals 13: Budget Home Defense Shotgun Edition
Many people’s first upgrade to their shotgun will be a source of light. Like you’ll see from other items on this list there are some pretty robust and advanced options that streamline this process but the UTG angled offset mount seems like a pretty solid option from what I’ve seen from James’ testing. However, if you choose to use this UTG mount, you’ll probably want to put some thread locker on there so it doesn’t work itself loose. The mount is capable of accepting lights around 1″ in diameter. The UTG angled offset ring mount is currently on sale for $10.89 (normal list price $14.97).
If you go the route of mounting a light to your shotgun, you’ll naturally need a weapon light to put in there. While this option that I’ve selected from surefire isn’t the most budget-friendly, it does happen to be quite affordable at its sale price. The Surefire G2X features 600 lumens of maximum light output from its LED emitter and also features a momentary and constant-on option from its clickable tail switch. Surefire has one of the best reputations in the weapon-mounted light business and I think its current sale price of $63.61 (normal list price of $95.00) is worthy of looking at if you’re in the market for a new light for your shotgun.
Weapon retention is important no matter what the situation is. The Magpul RLS Rifleman Two-Point sling takes the success of Magpul’s MS sling series and the RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) to bring you a reliable and durable weapon retention device that is also very affordable. The sling featured a 1-1/4-inch nylon mesh webbing, tubular construction, and high-strength polymer hardware that Magpul is well known for. When it comes to slings it can’t get much more affordable than the RLS Rifleman Loop Two-Point sling. Currently, the sling is on a small discount for $18.99 from Amazon with free shipping.
James personally recommends the SPANKER shotgun cards and we’ve featured them in our lineup of deals in the past when they were more affordable. However, since that video went live and the last deal on the SPANKER shotgun cards, they’ve gone up a bit in price. These FUNANASUN 1000D elastic nylon webbing shotgun cards will actually hold one additional shotgun shell than the SPANKER cards and are also sold in packs of 4 making them quite useful for use with a magazine carrier or fanny pack for quick reloads onto your side-saddle. Each card ends up coming out to about $5 apiece when bought in its four-pack which is currently on sale for $19.19.
Probably slightly more practical than a shotgun card, carrying all of your spare ammo in a fanny pack is also a fast way to reload with a little bit of practice. LA Police Gear already has some great products for the firearms industry but their Frunk fanny pack is one that I think could be useful for more than what this article is focused on. With certain inserts, you can covert the fanny pack from a shotgun shell pouch to an EDC pouch that’ll hold your knife, spare mags, and even a firearm. The LA Police Gear Frunk Fanny Pack is currently on sale in either black or grey for $21.24.
