Five Fantastic Things that Fit in Stockings

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.

The Ruger LCP

Scrimshaw Handgun Grips

Scrimshaw is an art form that dates back over 200 years and is said to be the only art form that originated from North America. Traditionally, scrimshaw is the word used to describe the carving of pictures into ivory or bone. Go classical or go attitude with replica ivory grips.

Seriously, you can never have enough PMAGs.

Magpul PMAGs

Though not as fancy is the other stocking stuffers, everyone will appreciate a PMAG. Get a Magpul PMAG in either Gen 2 or Gen 3 for AR-15s in .223 Remington or .308 Winchester or for their AK-47 in 7.62×39. Because, seriously, you can never have enough PMAGs.

  1. There arent too many firearms these days that take shorts only. If you are looking for a .22 round with less power try some sub-sonics. The CCI quiet round is a good one.Ive been finding them in stores more lately. It might be a regional thing, but unusual .22 ammo is whats available where I live. Things like .22 short HV, expensive target ammo, etc.

  2. what about .22 caliber hand guns, I don’t hear much about them, can’t be fun, and to be enjoyed, and for home protection? I hear more about powerful big hand guns, and where can you get .22 shorts, no one seem to have them.
