Mantis X10 (MSRP $249.99) is a training tool used on rifles, pistols, shotguns, and archery during live and dry fire training. In my opinion, it is a game-changer and a must-have tool for every gun owner. It can help your loved ones improve their marksmanship skills, gives immediate feedback, allow them to train in the comfort of their home and on the range while also saving on ammunition costs.
Gun owners are responsible for adequately storing their firearms away from unauthorized individuals. This small, lightweight, TSA-approved gun safe is convenient, stylish, affordable, and can store items such as jewelry and important documents. These cost $110 and have additional accessories to pair with them.
A trauma medical kit is a great item to have on the go. These medical kits can go in range bags or vehicles. They come in handy if someone needs a band-aid at the range or if you encounter an injured person and decide to administer first aid. Try to pair a tourniquet with the medical kit. These vary in cost, but you can get one for around $50.
Additional items to consider are noise-canceling ear protection, ballistic rated glasses with tinted and clear lenses, flashlight, training ammunition, and gun cleaning supplies. These items can range anywhere from $20 to $200 depending on what you get and can be stocking stuffers. You can always get a gift certificate or gift card from their favorite manufacturer or gun store as a last resort.
Now for the common sense tip that will assist you in always selecting the perfect gift. Do your friends and loved ones mention things they would love to have, or send you pictures of items they like throughout the year? Be sure to record these wish list items using the notes application on your phone, or keep it simple and use pen and paper. Keeping a running list of these items will ease some of the stress associated with selecting great gifts during the holidays.
I am definitely going to ask Santa or the birthday gremlins for that larger Vaultek lifepod to hold my full-size firearm.
