As the holiday season rolls around and you’re searching for that perfect gift for the gun lover in your life, Cheaper Than Dirt is here to help. With tons of new and experienced firearms owners in the market, and concealed carry more popular than ever, chances are there’s a handgun lover in your life you need to shop for. Here are some top gifts for pistol shooters.
It’s no surprise that if you shoot, you gotta clean. So, get that avid shooter a high-quality handgun cleaning kit with everything they’ll need to keep their beloved firearms well maintained. A dirty gun is more likely to jam and malfunction, so it’s important to clean your pistol regularly. Top options from KleenBore, Shooter’s Choice, and Otis are sure to get your pistol back in tip-top shape and ready for your next trip to the range.
If you enjoy shooting, you’ll need a good range bag. Even seasoned shooters likely have a range bag that has worn over time and could use an upgrade. The G Outdoors tactical range bag has room for all your pistols to travel safetly and securly. If you’re looking for something more minimalist, something smaller like the Voodoo pistol case may be more your speed. With room for a pistol and your spare magazines, this lightweight option is perfect for a quick trip to the range.
Secure storage is another key tenant of firearms ownership. Pistol owners need to look no further than the Hornady RAPiD vault. With space for one or two handguns, this safe is perfect for those looking for quick access and dependable security.
What does every gun owner need? More ammo! Whether it’s more FMJ for target practice and plinking or fresh hollow points to cycle through your carry mags, no one will be disappointed in more ammunition. Find your loved one’s calibers of choice and get them loaded up with a new supply. If you’re looking to add a little wow factory, more ammunition storage would probably be appriciated.
For home defense and personal protection, a good light is invaluable. Having a weapon-mounted light allows you to maintain a proper grip on your pistol and keeps your support hand available for opening doors or operating a phone. The Streamlight TLR-1 HL is one of my go-to options, providing excellent quality at a good price. Nightstick is another top brand, going the extra mile on product research and development. For those looking for a dependable light that won’t break the bank, Leapers UTG offers plenty of affordable options.
Finally, stuff those stockings with some excellent firearm accessories. Along with ammo, every firearm owner is likely to say they could use more magazines. As you train and shoot, mags will wear out and need to be replaced. It’s also important to have a good stockpile on hand in case of any political turmoil. Additionally, common upgrades like aftermarket sights and grips are always a welcome sight.
