I’m not really one of those people to get too far ahead of myself when it comes to gift-giving holidays but I do always like to keep a list of things that I think people would like. Gun people happen to be some of the hardest people to shop for in my opinion, mostly because everyone kinda has their own thing going on, and it’s really hard to gauge what would make a good gift for them specifically. On the other side of things, most gun people tend to already have the things they want and the things they don’t have, well let’s just say I’m not made of money. This week for TFB Weekly Amazon Deals 16, I have collected a number of items that make for great gifts no matter what that special gun person in your life is into. Let’s dive in.
TFB Weekly Amazon Deals 16: Gifts for Gun Guys Edition
Everyone could use some more dry fire practice and having snap caps around is a great way to make sure you’re doing it both safely and without damaging your firearm. While most modern handguns can be dry-fired safely without snap caps, what I’ve recently been using them for is malfunction drills. Usually, I’ll go to the range with a buddy or two and we will load each other’s magazines and insert several snap caps in with the live rounds which make for some fun practice. The Tipton snap caps are very durable and feature a real brass base. They are currently on sale for $13.59 per pack of 5 snap caps (9mm) and have 8 different pistol calibers to choose from.
I placed this item on the list and it is actually something I don’t personally own. However, I also think it is something that every rifle shooter should own. Shooting rests like the Caldwell Steady Rest are almost essential for doing sighting in work or if you’re a big fan of bench rest shooting just for fun. This one is fully adjustable and is made from materials that make it capable of withstanding the outside elements and also keeps the rest itself from marring up the finish of your nice rifle stock. The rest can also have its individual components removed to accommodate longer rifles that may not have standard-sized stocks or forends, or if you only plan on using one end of it for some more stabilized pistol shooting. The Caldwell Steady Rest is currently available for $24.89.
The Deathgrip is a tripod made specifically for shooters and until recently I had never shot from one. Turns out they are incredibly useful for not only casual shooting but for hunters as well. The Deathgrip is one of the most popular shooting tripods on the market and features large and easy-to-use adjustments, an integrated bubble level and is made from durable and lightweight aluminum. You can pick up the BOG Deathgrip tripod right now for nearly $75 off at a price of $124.99.
I’m a big fan of the Streamlight line of products and I own quite a few of their pocket EDC flashlights. While the Micro Stream is probably my favorite that I own, I’ve always been curious about the Wedge due to its larger size and longer battery life. The Streamlight Wedge comes in either black or coyote finish and can throw out up to 1000 lumens but normally operates at 300 lumens which I think is perfect for an EDC flashlight. The flashlight also has an IPX7 waterproof rating and comes with an anodized finish making it suitable for harsh everyday carry situations. The Streamlight Wedge is currently on sale for $87.98 which is just a touch over $60 off of its normal list price.
The SIG Romeo MSR is one of the most affordable red dot sights on the market and even more so than the arguably superior SIG Romeo 5. However, the SIG Romeo MSR has a few features that set it apart from the Romeo 5 and is priced in such a way that makes it a tempting buy for those looking for their first red dot optic. The SIG Romeo MSR features a precise 2-MOA dot, integrated lens covers, a 7000-series aluminum housing, a mount and can last up to 20,000 hours with a single CR1632 battery. For its current sale price of $84.67, it’s hard to argue against purchasing one just to have around or as a gift for a friend who might be lacking in the optics department.
So this one isn’t exactly on sale but it’s something I’ve come to love over the years having lived a majority of the last 10 years in the hot and humid southern regions of the United States. Cat Crap is an easy-to-use and convenient lens cleaner that also applies a thin and clear layer of anti-fog coating on your shooting protection lenses. This stuff works absolutely great and comes in a convenient carry container that makes it easy to toss in a range bag so you’ve always got it when your glasses start to fog up. You can pick up a half-ounce canister of it for $10.50 and you don’t need much of it to treat each of your lenses so it will last quite a long time and in my opinion, it is well worth the price for the convenience and clarity it offers. It can even be used safely on camera lenses and other optics without damaging the lens.
