Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Gun Lovers

father's day gift ideas for gun lovers

Father’s Day is the perfect time to show that man in your life how much you appreciate them. For those with a guy that loves all things guns and gear related, finding a gift can be difficult if you don’t know where to begin.

Here are some great ideas, along with a few suggestions, that the father in your life is sure to love. It may seem like he has too much or at least everything he needs, hey, he can always make room, right?

Budget Options ($50 or Less)

If you’re looking for something small, try getting him a box of ammo. I think most of us would agree we could always use some extra ammunition.

Pick up a box of his favorite caliber and he’ll have a blast on the range. If you don’t know the caliber he shoots, try to check one of his boxes, but he probably has at least one firearm in 9mm Luger or 5.56 NATO.

This Winchester 5.56 NATO XM855 Green Tip ammunition is sure to make him smile. 

Another great option is to get him a cleaning kit. If you shoot and clean firearms often, your cleaning kit gets worn and your supplies run out.

A new kit makes life easier and helps get the job done the right way. This Hoppes 26-Piece Universal Cleaning Kit contains all the necessary tools to get their firearms cleaned and ready for the next outing.

Mid-Tier Options ($50-250)

As much as we love guns, we love to accessorize them. A new light or laser unit is a great way to upgrade a firearm they already own.

Having a light is imperative for using the firearm at night or in low-lighting conditions, and getting a gun-loving father one of these is sure to bring a smile to their face.

This Streamlight TLR-1 HL is one of the most popular on the market and delivers an astonishing 800 Lumens for an excellent level of clarity. 

Another great firearm upgrade is a scope or optic. Optics help the shooter aim and see what they’re shooting at, and this can become even harder as our eyes age.

Help them take their shooting to the next level by giving them a new optic. This Holosun HE403C-GR is a great dot sight that features a green reticle that is easily picked up by the eye.

High-End Options ($250 or More)

If you really want to shock the father in your life on Father’s Day, take a look at a new firearm. Chances are, they’re lusting after something, whether it be a pistol, rifle or shotgun.

This may be one option where you will want to ask them for some specifics, but a great new option is the Springfield Armory Hellcat.

This is an incredibly compact handgun that offers a great amount of firepower. The Hellcat is sure to be a winner if they are someone who conceal carries. 

If a new firearm is not of importance, perhaps a new storage method is. Traditional gun safes have great storage, but they are slow and cumbersome to open.

This Hornady RAPiD Gun Locker fits an AR-15, or similar sized rifle, and is quickly opened via a programmable RFID tag.

This is a great option for home defense because the firearm is stored safely, while still being able to be accessed quickly.
