FATHER'S DAY 2018: A Buying Guide For Everyone

by Pete

Do you really want to know what fathers want on Sunday, June 17? Do you really want to know? Because I’ll tell you. Nothing. No, I’m not talking about the lack of physical gifts, parties or dinners out. I’m talking about literally nothing. Like “most of the time our lives are filled with overstimulation and chaos, we’d prefer to live in a vacuum for a day” type of nothing. I mean, we love you and everything, but we are all headed into the woods to be alone for a few hours. But since it seems that we never get what we want, I’m going to help everyone out with this detailed Buying Guide For Everyone containing some simple Amazon gifts that can be purchased quickly and easily and will be sure to put a smile on dads face. Just like the other thing we get once a year… Red Velvet Cake. Get your minds out of the gutter!

FATHER’S DAY 2018: A Buying Guide For Everyone

Listen, dads are a simple bunch. Sure, we’d love a murdered out quad cab F350 pulling a trailer full of 9mm ammo. But since we pack a fair amount of common sense and hefty dose of realism, we will settle for something easily purchased, practical, useful and most of all, drama-free. Heck, we aren’t even asking you to visit a website that would ever consider listing a gun for sale. I mean, sure, Amazon sells all sorts of elicit paraphernalia, but heaven forbid subsonic rimfire ammo dirties their pages. But I digress.

Some simple tips for our loving family: If we return something that you got us, don’t be offended. We probably already have it in the supply cabinet. We may also never tell you that we have returned it, so don’t ask to see it on one of our guns.

    Okaaay, let's try it another way:

    You know that vanilla-looking grip that Troy puts on their pump-action rifles? Does anyone make that design for keymod rails? It would go perfect on my next build (.300 BLK pistol with 8.5" bbl and short rail that can't have anything remotely resembling a VFG).

    Cerated? obviously NOT a 'real' knife guy ;-)
