    Best of the Worst: Amazon Gun Gifts

    Imagine a free world where you could use Amazon Prime to order a dozen Magpul PMags, a case of 5.56mm ammo or a Geissele AR-15 trigger. And while I realize that it’s “their business, their rules” and that there are many other high-quality outlets that will ship you exactly what you want, there is still a part of me that wonders “why not?”. For the moment at least, there are a limited number of gun accessories and related gear products on the world’s largest internet retailer to keep us all somewhat happy. We’ve peppered you with knives, flashlights and the occasional less-than-lethal suggestion. But I decided to dig into the Amazon underworld, looking for firearm-related gear products that you don’t see every day. Who knows, maybe some of these Amazon gun gifts can be the perfect way to end a long friendship at this year’s company Secret Santa gift exchange.

    As a reminder, none of the commissions for our Best/Top/Worst posts come to me personally. They go to feeding the squirrels that supply the power to the TFB steam engine. If it did, I’d be suggesting pearl earrings or high-end photography equipment (TFB is powered by Panasonic S1R and GH5 cameras).

    I do listen to all of your suggestions and I’m trying to evolve our gear posts for the better. What seems to work is to poll the highly talented and experienced TFB staff for their gear suggestions and give you a reason of why we like the brands and models we select.

    Last week’s adjustable gas block list seemed to be helpful to some shooters, and I want to continue to get better with our gear suggestions. I’ll lean heavily on the staff and their areas of expertise, but I will also be reaching out to our industry partners for advice as well. Reader suggestions are always welcome. (Note: I’ve received the ‘Go F*#k Yourself’ suggestion already, there’s no need to pile on).

    Back to the fun stuff – here’s a list of some of the “worst” gun-related gear I could find on Amazon. However, there are some of you who may actually like my suggestions and decide to pick a little something up for yourself or a close family member. I’m not suggesting you should, but the option is there nonetheless.

    Be safe, have fun and thanks for supporting TFB.
