Airgun Accessories

The shortage of rimfire ammo has resulted in airguns making a comeback as a leading form of recreational shooting and small-game hunting. Just as with conventional firearms, you’ll need to accessorize your airgun to keep it clean and get the most out of it. Here are some must-have accessories available from Cheaper Than Dirt.

Defensive Handgun Accessories

Learning how to use handguns for self-defense has been called the "new martial art." But a quality pistol or revolver loaded with reliable ammunition is not a complete self-defense system. Thought should be given to how the gun will be carried, stored and if additional accessories would be useful. Cheaper Than Dirt provides a large selection of handgun support gear from which to choose.

Keeping Things Clean

Keeping a firearm clean and maintained requires time, attention to detail and some supplies. Sometimes you might only want to give it a quick work over so you can get back into the field, while other times you want to clean every single inch before putting it away for a while. Cheaper Than Dirt provides a variety of equipment for either, along with tool kits for mounting scopes and conducting minor repairs to keep you sending rounds toward the target.

Must-Have Prepper Gear

Whether you're a true, diehard prepper or just a concerned citizen that wants to be prepared for anything, there are some things that you absolutely must have in your home inventory. From food and water storage to first aid, some wares are simply essential when your mission is simple survival. Here are 10 products that you should have on hand if you want to call yourself a real "prepper," all of which can be found through Cheaper Than Dirt

We spend plenty of time looking over our options when choosing which guns to own and what ammo to shoot. But how much thought goes into how we'll transport our favorite shooting gear from point A to point B? Cheaper Than Dirt has gathered a diverse set of bags and packs especially selected for shooting enthusiasts.

Preparedness Month

As September is National Preparedness Month, this is a good time to take a look at your emergency plans and ask some important questions.

First Aid & Kits

Defense is more than carrying and training with a gun. It is being prepared to fight and survive, which includes having a basic understanding of first aid.


With the recent storms knocking out power and causing general disruption of services throughout the Northeast, it made me think about how few people are prepared for disasters of any kind.

Retractable Baton

My recent discussions on Unarmed Defense and Pepper Spray got me to thinking about other useful items that can be carried for self-defense in lieu of, or in conjunction with, a handgun. One that seems particularly useful is a retractable baton.
