2017 Holiday Gift Guide For Shooters


Still not sure what to buy the hunter or shooting enthusiast in your life? Don’t fret, you still have time! As a fellow gun enthusiast here’s a list of some gift ideas we’ve stumbled upon while shopping for the holidays or that we’d like to receive for Christmas (I hope the wife is reading!). Have an idea of your own? Feel free to comment so we can expand this list!


This is an obvious one, who doesn’t need more ammo? As a shooter I’m always happy to get more ammo. Check out my big list of ammo sources online.

Some of my go-to places for ammo online are:



OK, this is another gimme, but like ammo you can never have too many magazines. Magpul PMAGs are among the best out there for the AR-15, AK-47 and Glocks. If they’re a 1911 user then I highly recommend Chip McCormick 1911 Mags. If they own a Ruger 10/22 rifle than you can’t go wrong with getting them a few Ruger BX-25 mags

Mag holders are also a good gift idea too, especially if they’re planning on getting into competitive shooting. 

Boresnakes and Cleaning Kits

There are a lot of cleaning kits out on the market, but to me the tried and true Boresnake is a must have. It makes cleaning your firearm’s barrel a quick and easy process. They go for about $12 and up online.


Another cleaning kit I recommend is the Otis Elite Cleaning System. It comes with everything you need to keep your guns clean. 


If they’re an AR-15 owner these AR-15 Scraper Tools from Real Avid are pretty awesome.

Hearing Protection

Chances are a shooter already has this in their gear bag, but if they’re oldshool and still use foam plugs here’s are two products I’m a fan of. First are the Surefire Sonic Defenders, these awesome little guys fit snugly and block out plenty of noise, they also have little stoppers that you can unplug when talking to your buddies at the range.

Second are the Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Earmuffs, they block out noise above 82 dB and amplifies conversations and commands when not shooting. They’re great for range days or shooting classes.

Gun Schematic Cleaning Mats

These gun schematic cleaning mats are pretty cool,  do you really need them when cleaning your gun? Nope, but they sure look sweet. They have them for the 1911, AR-15 and various gun models as well.

Mag Loaders

If you’re getting someone special a few magazines, how about a mag loader too? They’ll save their thumbs after a long day of shooting. We’re fans of the  Mag Lula pistol loaders.

Tactical Molle Christmas Stockings


Does the gun enthusiast in your life already have all of the above? How about these cool Tactical Molle Christmas Stockings?

They’re available in Black, OD Green, Coyote Brown and Multicam with free shipping.

Gun Shirts

We’re fans of 1791 Apparel, we’ve reviewed their shirts in the past and have always found them to be of great quality and pretty affordable. They make awesome gifts all year-long, but if you’re stumped as to what to get for the holidays you can’t go wrong with a shirt from 1791 Apparel, check out their entire product line at 1791Apparel.com.


There’s also these AR-15 shirts available on various colors on Amazon.com. There’s also a ton of other firearms related shirts available on Amazon as well.

Got a few ideas you want to add? Let us know in the comments below,  happy shopping!

  1. Ralphie holding the AR15 cracked me up. I may have to steal that for my FB profile pic. Lol! Oh, and my vote is for AMMO. Lots of it!

  2. I will love to have some magazines as a gift from some one this Xmas season. My personal fav will be STTI .357 Magnum gas semi-auto revolver featuring a 14 round capacity, and whats more is that it feeds perfectly in most STTI gas non-blowback magnum revolvers.
