Christmas Is Coming: Top 10 Gifts for the Gun Owner in Your Life

Get them a gift they will appreciate. Here is our list. 

Anyone who loves guns will know the dangers of trapping moist air inside their ammo cans, so these come with three desiccant packs. They will absorb any moisture, preventing possible damage to your ammunition. Constructed with high quality metal, these ammo cans will withstand long term storage. They’re designed to be tough and durable; made out of premium steel and built to last, they’ll protect anything you keep inside for as long as you need. They also come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so you can make this purchase risk-free! If your recipient doesn’t like them then they’ll be easy to return.

EXPENSIVE

Pocket Pro Shot Timer

Moving on to our expensive options for gun lover gifts, the Pocket Pro Shot Timer is a great tool that you can be sure they’ll love using. The timer records individual shots fired and records the RPM. The timer doesn’t come with its own batteries, so you’ll need to include a 9v battery separately from your purchase.

With its cool blue color and the ability to configure the display, and large clothespin style belt clip, the timer is stylish and adaptable. It saves on battery life too, as it will automatic power down after ten minutes of inactivity.

The timer can store up to 99 shots within any firing round. From the 100th shot onward, the shot information will be stored by overwriting the data from the 99th. The maximum timing period is limited to 199.9 seconds, so any shots recorded after this will wrap, overwriting the first data. You can adjust the sensitivity too! With greater sensitivity you’ll be able to measure even the faster guns, or you can decrease it to avoid miscalculations from more powerful or quieter ones.

If you need to restore the factory default values, remove the battery, then hold down the “Start” button and reinstall the battery. Look at the display until you see the message “INIT N/V MEMORY”, then release the start button. The Pocket Pro II measures automatically within 1 mSec, but shot displays, splits, etc. are rounded to the nearest 10 mSec on the display. This means that the RPM may seem incorrect if you’re manually calculating it, but if you let the timer calculate for you it should be perfectly accurate. Overall, this is a great gift for any gun lover interested in testing the speed of their arsenal.

Speedvault Handgun Safe

If your gun lover has been complaining about a lack of security (or even just due for a safe upgrade) then our next item is going to be the perfect gift for them. The Speedvault Handgun Safe is a sturdy, well-made item that can keep any smaller firearms safe and out of the hands of anyone who shouldn’t have them. Constructed out of 18-gauge steel, it will withstand just about any assault, whether from nature, use, or mistreatment, while the protective foam-lined interior keeps handguns cushioned and undamaged.

A quick access digital keypad makes opening the safe easy for the owner, though it does require a 9v battery to operate. Both it and the fast activation drop down drawer make retrieval of any firearm from the safe in the event of an emergency fast and reliable. The safe has multiple mounting options for adaptable placement (for which all of the hardware is included with your original purchase) and it includes a backup override key in the event the battery dies or your gun lover is just a tad forgetful.

Lee Reloading Kit

Finally, our last item on our list, is the Lee Precision Anniversary Challenger II Kit.

Do you have a friend or relative who knows how to reload ammo? If so they’ll love this, because this is the mother of all reloading kits. One of the most essential items inside is the Challenger Press, a strong O-frame press with a larger-than-average opening angled at 30° for maximum hand clearance.

The compound leverage easily performs full-length sizing on even the largest magnum cases and there is also a built-in, easy-to-empty primer catcher.

The kit comes with a complete powder-handling system, including the precise Perfect Powder Measure tool. Case preparation tools include a cutter and lock stud for trimming cases, an inside/outside case mouth chamber tool, primer pocket cleaner, and a tube of premium sizing lube.

You also get one Breech Lock Quick Change Bushing, which is the perfect way to make changing dies a simple job and a speedy one too. Once the bushing is mounted on your die, you’ll never have to adjust the die again unless the mood strikes you. It saves time, eliminates guesswork, and ensures the consistency of your reloaded product.

You can spend less time fiddling and more time cranking out rounds. In order to use the case cutter and lock stud, a specific shell holder and case length gauge is needed for each caliber to be trimmed. This is the heavy-duty, precision reloading kit that your gun lover dreams about and will be an appreciated addition to their toolbox without a doubt.

Conclusion

So you’ve made it all the way through our list of gifts. Congratulations! Hopefully you’ve found the perfect gift somewhere among our categories that will surprise and delight your gun lover. Whether you’re working with an unlimited budget or a budgeted budget, this list was designed to make searching for that dream gift simple and quick.

Of course, these don’t only have to serve as gifts. If you’re a bit of a gun lover too then there’s no reason not to look over these great tools, accessories, and fun products and treat yourself.
