Earlier this month, Guns & Ammo posted a great blog listing a variety of gift ideas for the gun-loving dad in your life. Keep reading to see what they found to be some of the greatest gifts the firearms industry has to offer. Any one of these will be sure to make your dad’s day.
1. A Gun Safe
G&A recommended the RAPiD Safe from Hornady for safe and secure storage solution for your father’s handgun while still allowing for immediate access. If the $275 is a little out of your price range, keep reading.
2. A Handgun Light/Laser
If you’re looking for the perfect light/laser combination for your defensive handgun, Streamlight has the answer for you in the $210 TLR-6 Universal Kit.
3. A Pistol Shelf
The $179 812 PLS from Tactical Walls combines the utility of a shelf with a discreet foam-lined compartment for concealing a handgun and accessories.
4. A Plinking Can System
The Plinking Can is an interactive battery-operated cylinder that jumps up and falls over when shot, just like a real can. The system works through instant feedback once a laser stream hits the center mass of the can. G&A recommended the LaserLyte plinking can setup.
5. A Keychain Light
I know, I know.. it sounds pretty cheesy. BUT.. G&A recommends a keychain light to beat them all. The SureFire Titan Plus has a max power output of 300 lumens, which is a lot of power for a light that is less than 3.5 inches long, has a bezel diameter of half an inch and weighs less than two ounces.
6. A Holster
The Freedom Carry holster from CrossBreed is the latest model in the company’s line of handcrafted holsters. This model is different from most other holsters because it allows users to carry in several positions without sacrificing comfort.
7. A Ruger Pocketknife
Renowned knife maker CRKT has partnered with Ruger to create a line of knives meant to echo Ruger gun designs. The Ruger/CRKT Follow-Through was designed by Matthew Lerch as an everyday folding knife, and it has a built-in blade flipper for easy one-handed opening.
8. A Gift Box
Of course, G&A wouldn’t recommend just any old gift box. The Gurkha Knife Pack Gift Box comes with a sampling of five Toro 5×52 cigars, a fixed-blade steel knife with belt-clip sheath, a limited-edition challenge coin key chain and a flip-lid box.
9. Cleaner & Lube
Gun Medic is the new bio-based cleaner and lube formula from Hoppe’s. The company says the cleaner/lube was originally developed for jet engines and is perfectly suited to the harsh conditions to which bolts and bolt carriers are subjected.
