Hanging out at the range is always a good time, and it’s even better when your dad – the man who taught you to shoot so many years ago – is there beside you. This Father’s Day return the favor by buying him something you know he’d love but probably wouldn’t spend the money on himself. From earmuffs to topnotch travel cases, the gifts highlighted below are sure to please a gun-loving dad.
The Howard Leight Impact Sport Earmuff is an outstanding value. With a noise reduction rating of 22db and an extremely low profile, this high-quality electronic earmuff amplifies low-level ambient sound such as conversation while instantly reducing potentially damaging sounds. Shooters can expect a battery life of 350 hours (4-hour auto shut-off). Two AAA batteries are included. The muffs fold up for compact storage.
Military personal and professional photographers rely on Pelican cases to keep their valuable gear clean, dry and safe – and so should you. These cases (four sizes available) meet the demanding standards of the United States military. Pelican’s innovative open-cell core and solid-wall construction absorbs shock and bumps, and each case has an Automatic Purge Valve with a GORE-TEX membrane that releases air pressure but keeps moisture out. Easy-open Double-Throw latches combine a C-clamp with a secondary action that works like a pry bar so they lock tight but release with just a light pull. Rifle cases are wheeled.
Carry two handguns, all your magazines plus extra gear in a Cabela’s Xtreme Range Bag. The large compartment with adjustable dividers and multiple side pockets keep everything organized. Two lockable pistol compartments include padded pistol rugs for cleaning. High-visibility bottom and lined pocket adds contrast in low-light conditions for easily finding small accessories. The bag features six handgun magazine sleeves, two high-capacity MSR magazine sleeves, plus two quick-access pockets for cellphones or flashlights. Dimensions: 8.25″H x 17.5″W x 12″D.
If you like the original Lead Sled, which reduces recoil up to 95% on all rifles, shotguns and slug guns, you’ll like the Lead Sled Plus even more. It features a precise “no-wobble” elevation shaft that eliminates play in front elevation, and the adjustable weight tray holds up to 100 pounds of sand bags or lead shot. Features include: fingertip elevation adjustment, filled front bag, padded rear rest, rugged rubber feet, and height adjustable rear foot.
Perfect for throwing either singles or doubles, the Trius One Step Trap comes with an easy-cocking aluminum arm and oil-impregnated bushings for years of trouble-free target shooting. You can even practice on your own because the One Step Trap can be cocked and tripped with your foot, leaving your hands free for aiming and shooting.
