    We all have a favorite accessory we've purchased for one of our guns. Maybe it was a high dollar optic, or something simple like a cleaning kit or a new gun case. What's your favorite accessory?

    OKC-3S bayonet. While I don't use the upper with a lug on it much anymore (currently thinking about selling it), it's got style. You mount that thing at the range, and people stare in awe of your bad-@$$ness. At least, I think that's why they were staring...

    You have a photo? I'm not sure I've seen one. What do you attach it to?

    With my watch for comparison. It's a beefy blade.

    Unfortunately, I just moved and my guns are at the last place until I get a gun cabinet (am doing that today once my friend with the truck is available) so I have nothing with it mounted.

    I attached it to an AR-15. It once had a 16" heavy barreled upper (more accurate than I am) with a bayonet lug, but I found it too heavy on the move and switched it for a 20" govt' profile upper with a low-profile gas block and no lug.

    By the end of the weekend I should have my collection in hand and I'll get some pics up of it mounted.

    I'm surprised those are legal in CA!

    Top quality Gun Belt (I wear an old Galco) and a sturdy strong side holster (my own design and manufacture). Also, a recoil spring guide with a built-in allen wrench so I can remove/tighten grip screws in the field.

    Pics if you got 'em! I love to see those things.

    That is near the top of my list of things to buy when I can get out of here. It's a small dream of mine to own a suppressor for my Beretta 90-TWO.

    When I first got my concealed carry permit the first thing I did was invest a few hundred in good quality leather. After ten years of wearing it daily (even when I'm not carrying it's the belt I wear) my Milt Sparks sharkskin belt still looks brand new. I need to get another Glock 19 and 1911 Government so I can dust off those holsters.

    I still think it's funny/sad that suppressors are so highly regulated here in the US and actually required in some other countries to cut down on noise pollution.

    Ya, I think its stupid. Think how quiet the ranges would be if you could just go to the local gun store and buy one without paying a $200 tax and an average wait of 6 months.

    A good set of screwdrivers. I've seen so many buggered screws it's not funny. It amazes me that folks will spend hundreds of dollars on a nice firearm, then use a 99 cent screw driver from walmart on it.

    I can attest to that! When I was 12 I mowed lawns and saved my money to buy a double-headed Snap-On screwdriver for $45. I still have it and use it almost 20 years later :)

    Bushnell Tactical Elite 6-24 X 50 scope. 30mm tube, turrets, side focus. It's remarkably clear across the entire field of view, the controls feel really high-quality, and it returns to zero every time. It even came with a sunshade.

    $550, but that was a special deal. I usually see them for around $700 - $900. MSRP is about $1200 IIRC.

    WOW. I always thought Bushnell was one of the value brands.
