Hunters passionate about lightweight gear have an ideal package to try for in a double gift giveaway at  this month—a 12-gauge Benelli Ultra Light shotgun and a pair of Bushnell compact binoculars. One winner will be picked to win both on June 1, 2012.

The shotgun is the 2012 Friends of NRA Gun of the Year. Weighing just six pounds, it would be hard to find a 12-gauge semi-auto that is lighter or handles quicker. Capable of handling 2-3/4-inch to 3-inch magnum loads, the Ultra Light is versatile enough to take everything from woodcock and quail to ducks and geese. Features include Benelli’s Inertia-Driven semi-automatic action, a light alloy receiver, shortened magazine tube and a raised target rib made of carbon fiber. Each gun is engraved with “Friends of NRA Ultra Light Gun of the Year.” The MSRP is $1649. Friends of NRA celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and Benelli just announced it has joined as a sponsor of the Friends of NRA TV show, presented by Brunton.

The binoculars are Bushnell’s new Legend Ultra HD 10x 25mm folding compacts. They feature wide-angle BaK-4 roof prisms for incredible edge-to-edge sharpness and detail, along with fully multi-coated lenses for maximum light transmission and brightness. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Prime Glass produces a color tuned, high resolution image.

The Legend Ultra HD compact offers a lightweight, streamlined design that easily folds and fits into a pack or pocket. Built from a magnesium chassis and wrapped in a non-slip, rubber-armored housing, these binoculars are 100 percent waterproof and fogproof and come with Bushnell’s RainGuard HD water-repellant lens coating. MSRP: $199.99. Visit:
