Waited until the last-minute did we? Perhaps Uncle Buck surprised you at the last-minute and showed up for Christmas dinner. Regardless of the reason, you need a gift and you need it now! Instead of stopping at the local convenient store to pick from the few chintzy items remaining, buy them a Cheaper Than Dirt gift card in any denomination up to and including $1,000.
For the holidays, Cheaper Than Dirt! received a test sample of ammunition from Chocolateammo.com, the San Diego-based confectioner whose line of candy products includes the Chocolate Bullet Military Tin, Chocolate Hand Gun, Chocolate Shotgun Shell Tins and other products.
I believe you are never too old for stockings. To this day, Santa visits my family’s house on Christmas Eve and fills our stockings with surprises. Did I mention this is a household sans children? Nothing lights up Christmas morning more than a few surprises, even for adults. Stocking gifts don’t have to be limited to candy, an orange, an apple and a few plastic trinkets. This year, tell Santa to leave them a few extra special gifts in their stockings. Here are five fantastic stocking stuffers.
Growing up at my house it was always about quantity over quality on Christmas Day. Sure, we would get one big gift such as a bike or gaming system, but mom and dad wanted to extend the surprise and fun for as long as possible. Short of wrapping each individual Lego, my brother and I loved opening present after present. Just looking at the abundance of presents under the tree gave us joy. This year, instead of splurging on one overly expensive gadget, why don’t you create mini kits for your loved ones?
Despite months of lead time and incessant reminders, many of us end up rushing around at the last minute—desperately seeking the perfect gift for those special people on our list.
Seems like just yesterday when the days were long and hot, and the fish were biting. It is hard to believe the holidays are here and the aisles are already decked with stockings, shiny ornaments, twinkling lights, and rolls of colorful wrapping paper. Within the following list, you are bound to hit the mark and pinpoint the ideal gift for the sportswomen in your life.
This set of five machetes is one of Cheaper Than Dirt!’s best bargains on blades. Each individual order is a grab bag of five different machetes with a variety of blade shapes and lengths with different styles of handles. Every machete has a full-tang blade and all but one has good weight and balance for swinging, whacking and chopping.
Save Money and Shoot Better with the LaserLyte Training Tyme Kit and Plinking Cans
Experts and professionals agree, shooters should regularly train to keep proficient. Cost and availability of ammunition can be prohibitive to lay people and many may not make it to the range as often as they would like. You can still train at home with dry fire, which reinforces drawing for a holster, speed and muscle memory, but never gives feedback about your accuracy. If you aren’t accurate, then what’s your piece worth? A few pounds of metal?
For toting your precious investments to and from the gun range, Allen’s ruggedly constructed soft nylon tactical rifle case fits AR-15s, AK-47s, folding rifles, carbines, and bullpups perfectly.

Skip the mall, skip the lines, skip the post office and skip the stress and get the gun lover, survivalist, hunter or camper in your life a Cheaper Than Dirt gift card in any denomination up to and including $1,000. Unlike many store gift cards, they never expire.
The holiday season is officially upon us and if you haven’t already started your Christmas shopping, you have probably—in the very least—started making a mental check of list of what you would like to buy. Giving the gift of firepower, especially to the gun enthusiast, is an excellent idea.
There are quite a lot of adventurers out there—many who brave extreme temperatures to have an adventure of a lifetime. Like the 2,000 plus people who have successfully climbed Mount Everest. Others live in far Northern places—I’m looking at you, Alaska—where no one blinks an eye at minus freezing temperatures. When weather is going to be really nasty for a while, wouldn’t you prefer to have the best winter-rated gear?
I know, I hate the holiday gift lists that come out too early too. However, preppers by their very nature get things done early. So, I decided to put together my own spin on a holiday shopping list for your favorite prepper. In doing so, I left off many of the obvious choices that preppers, hikers, hunters and general outdoors people already own or make such as batteries, compasses and fire starters.
So what do you get that prepper on your gift list that they might not already have?
So, you still haven’t filled out the goodie basket for dad on his big day? Fear not we have the gift list that will make dad anticipate his day like it was going to be Christmas.
During your preseason scouting this year try something new. Grab five or even 10 $20 bills and hang them on a local tree with a nail or bungee cord. Then, come back in a few days, and see which type of bucks you find—brown or green. It sounds crazy right? Yet that is exactly what thousands of hunters do each year when they strap a trail camera to tree with a simple tie down or bungee cord and walk away. We are all guilty and have felt that sick feeling when we went to check our camera and hoped it would still be there.
Ammunition is in short supply, but high demand these days. As soon as it is delivered at the loading ramp, the line starts forming in anticipation of when it will hit the shelves. The high demand has also caused prices to follow, but that doesn’t mean we can afford to let our hard-earned skills suffer as a result.
The Kaito Voyager is a wind-up, crank radio capable of operation in three different radio modes—AM/FM, NOAA and shortwave. It will also light up your work area thanks to the three incorporated flashlights, which are great for camping or power outages. A downside would be size and weight of course, but given the features, I think the tradeoff is worthwhile.
