Finding a great gift for gun enthusiasts, although many women think is hard, is actually much easier than most think. I recently heard a hair-dresser in a salon tell her client, “I wish my boyfriend loved guns and shooting like yours, then it would be easier finding gift ideas for him”. You see, finding the top gun gifts is easier than finding a gift for someone who doesn’t really have a sport, hobby or clear topic of stuff they love and talk about constantly, so rejoice in the fact that you have a theme or category of gifts to search for.
Finding the gun gifts however, can be a little daunting if you are not into guns and shooting yourself. So we decided this year, that we will set up this handy good gifts for gun enthusiast list, to help you not only find the perfect gift for that gun lover in your life. If you are searching for the perfect gift for a gun collector, or just gift ideas for gun owners in general, we have something for everyone on this list.
List of Gun Themed Gifts
If you do not know guns, then you may not see the need for this, but believe me, the gun enthusiast you get this for will absolute love and need this. For almost any type of gun maintenance, care or modifications, a small torque wrench is needed to ensure the screws are torqued to the correct specifications, and not over or under tightened or stripped. This all-in-one kit comes with most of the common bits needed, from the 3/16 inch bit needed for Remington 700 action screws, to the 1/2 inch socket needed for Nightforce scope ring nuts, this kit has it when you need it. The fact that it comes in such a small handy kit, all in one pouch that you can chuck into any gun bag, rifle bag or gun case, means you always have it when you need it. Perfect range bag stuffer when it comes to gun gifts.
How is a Nalgene water bottle part of gun themed gifts? Easy, whether you are hunting, shooting a precision rifle match, shooting a three-gun IPSC match, or just out at the range or in the desert shooting some guns, you will get thirsty, and you will want a drink or water close by at all times. Well, just looking at all the Maxpedition, 5.11 Tactical and other tactical backpacks, range bags and add-ons, you will quickly see that almost all of them have a pouch or add-on pouch for a water bottle, that is almost perfectly or specifically made to fit this Nalgene Tritan water bottle. Most gun enthusiasts already have a range back or tactical bag, but many of them do not have the Nalgene bottle that fits in it yet. Get a hunting Nalgene bottle even if you already have a gym Nalgene bottle, a fresh clean water bottle is never a bad thing to get.
A good, sweat-wicking, breathable button shirt, with chest pockets, is the perfect gift for hunters, and gift for gun enthusiasts alike. Not only is the Alpine Tundra color which is similar to Olive Drab perfect to blend in with natural surroundings when hunting, it also helps wick sweat away from your body whilst on the walk and stalk, and lets your body cool off with the cooling flaps. The fabric of these shirts are so perfect to pack in for the hunt, they do now wrinkle easily, and they dry superfast so you can wash the shirt you wore today on your hunt in the shower, hand it up, and by tomorrow morning you can wear it again. Let’s face it, who doesn’t like rocking the tacticool military look when on the shooting range or at a shooting match? It is also available in a stone type Fossil color, and even the realtree edge color to match your realtree trousers.
Whether on the trail of a big buck, lying in the desert in the sun shooting from prone, in the battlefield in a sniper cover situation, or just out and about in the outdoors hiking or working, a good quality boonie hat is a must to protect your from the sun. The natural colors help this hat blend into the bush or surroundings so you stay hidden too.
A tactical type backpack, whether for hunting, a grab bag always in your truck, on your back walking between stages at a shooting match, or wherever you may find yourself wanting to carry gear practically and look tacticool while doing so. The problem is, when you search on Amazon, eBay, Google or anywhere online for tactical backpacks, you find thousands and thousands of similar looking backpacks featuring molle attachment systems and the like, many very cheap, and looking exactly like the more expensive brands like Maxpedition and 5.11 Tactical.
After myself personally and a number of our staff member have bought and test most of the best cheap brand bags available, let me tell you, there is NO comparison. The plastic lined, super thin cheap cordura fabric that all the cheap chinese brands and manufacturers use, often start tearing withing the first time of hard. Nothing comes close to the 1050D nylon that brand like 5.11 use on this Rush24 backpack. If you want to buy one backpack to keep with you or in your truck daily, and get many years of quality, enjoyable use from, this is the bag to get, no questions asked.
37L is the perfect grab bag size for a quick one or two day survival, or also the perfect size for a daily backpack, or a small to medium sized option for the best range bag backpack. Buy right, buy once.
If the Rush24 above is too small for your needs, of your want a grab bag that you can store more stuff to last you a few days in, then the bigger 55 liter Rush72 is the one to go for, and a perfect option for the best range bag backpack. I personally have one, that I use as my gear bag when shooting precision rifle matches like the National Rifle League or Precision Rifle Series matches, it is big enough for all my gear and snacks, so I literally just carry this bag on my back and my rifle in my hands between stages.
It is super well-made, also from the 1050D nylon, with strong zippers and double stiching. Even with both my Armageddon gear gamechanger and my Wiebad gear fortune cookie, together weighing over 7lbs together with all my other gear, and not one single stitch has ever let go or come loose. So if you are looking for the best military backpack for hiking, that is large enough to hold all the gear, yest well designed retention system to not fatigue your back and shoulders, this is the bag for you. As above, buy right, buy once.
Perfect for your tactical backpack, grab bag, range bag or any other molle system equipped bag, this high strength high quality water bottle holder from Maxpedition is a must. As mentioned above with the Nalgene bottle, it perfectly fits a 1L or 32 oz Nalgene standard bottle, and clips to any bag you have.
The original and proven tactical and shooting gloves on the market. Why fix what works, these are real good manufacturing quality and fit. I just received my new pair a week before my recent hunting trip, I wore them throughout the hunting trip, both early in the cold morning and later throughout the hot afternoons. The greatest function of these gloves, are that their smartphone touch screen compatibility actually works flawlessly and I was able to access shot placement guides on my smartphone with them on.
Always a firm favorite in the gifts for men that like guns category, even if they already have them, a nice backup pair or extra pair to leave in your truck always comes in handy.
If any of the precision rifle shooting disciplines like National Rifle League or Precision Rifle Series are what you do or want to compete in, this is the one bag that rules them all, one of the very unique gun gifts that you can be sure they will not get two of. We have a variety of different precision rifle shooting bags and rest bags, and it just so happens that eventually all of them got left at home and this bag was the only one that was and still is taken to every match and practice session. It just works for all obstacles and positional shooting scenarios we find, even as a rear bag when using a bipod on the front. Wiebad bags aren’t just well known because of marketing, they are well known because they are excellent.
If you do not shooting in precision rifle matches, or with a balanced rifle chassis system like an MPA or MDT chassis, or you want a bag for general bench shooting or hunting from the back of a pickup truck, this TackDriver by Caldwell is the one to get.
Far superior to all the other hunting x-bags, providing long enough support to hold a rifle either alone or with a rear bag, and the ability to add or remove from the fill to your liking makes this the perfect all round, general purpose shooting bag. We choose it for the best shooting bag for all occasions. The option of having it shipped either filled or un-filled also helps with shipping costs if you want to fill it yourself.
Definitely one of the best gifts for shooters.
A lot of the rural tough-guys laugh when shooters wear hearing protection, but if you have a friend or relative that was in any war, or hunted regularly without hearing protection you will know. It does permanent and irreversible damage to the hearing, with many combat veterans not even being able to hear their own watch alarm on their arm or an alarm clock on their bed, and that is the lighter of the stages. Good quality hearing protection like these Howard Leight Impact Sports, will fit comfortable, and allow you to hear clearly and have conversations with other, even when un-suppressed fire is happening all around you, this helps you to not have to ever take them off, and their quality will last year and years of hard use. These are the best earmuffs for indoor shooting range, and any outdoor shooting ranges and scenarios.
Although not a high-end automatic chronograph, that is not necessarily what you want when out in the rough and tumble of a hunt or a shoot, so this little Expedition Scout from Timex will come to your aid when you need it and will not break the bank if something happens to it. That being said, don’t let the price fool you, this is one tough and dependable time piece that will keep going through tough terrain, and ideal hunting watch. A great father’s day gift for any dad who likes guns and tactical gear, or an excellent first tactical watch for that young gun enthusiast.
