Buying a gift for a gun-lover is difficult, especially if you are not a weapons aficionado yourself. Ammunition is always a helpful option, but doesn’t exactly scream thoughtful and personal. If you could use a little assistance in the gift giving department, consider the following gift ideas for Glock owners.
Any of the following gifts below are sure to delight the Glock owner on your Christmas list.
A laser sight is a high-tech and useful addition to any weapon. Unlike other laser sights, this option offers no external additions to your gun.
The guide rod laser simply replaces the factory guide rod and take down lever, changing only the internal makeup of your gun.
This is a significant feature because no other accessories like holsters or grips need to be replaced in order to use this sight.
It is also able to be easily deactivated by both right and left-handed shooters. Although this gift is on the pricey side, it is a quality sight that withstands 5-story drops to concrete, multiple hours of salt-water submersion, extreme temperatures and more. Compatible with Glock generation 1, 2, and 3, this gift will be perfect for any Glock owner.
A compensator or muzzle brake is a great gift for the gun owner in your family. Designed to reduce recoil and muzzle rise, a compensator can greatly improve the aim and accuracy of the shooter.
This particular compensator has new and improved features that allow for easier and more secure installation.
The Zev V2 Pro is compatible with any 9mm Glock model with a corresponding threaded barrel.
No gun owner should be without a top-of-the-line tactical flashlight in their bag of gear. The SureFire G2X is one of the best tac-lights on the market. IntelliBeam technology automatically adjusts the light beam from 15 to 600 lumens depending on the darkness of your surroundings.
Although the LED beam is far-reaching, it still creates a useful surrounding light to aid in maintaining up-close visibility.
The shaft of the flashlight is made of anodized aerospace aluminum, making it extremely durable, while the glass is coated and tempered to resist impact and maximize light transmission.
Although safety gear may not sound like the most exciting gift, these shooting earmuffs feel like a luxury. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, the Howard Leight by Honeywell earmuffs have a high noise reduction rating of 30 NRR to keep your hearing safe.
These earmuffs actively listen and automatically blocks out noises when they reach 82 decibels. In addition to this, these headphones have built-in directional microphones that amplify and enhance communication in the field.
High-tech features aside, these earmuffs are comfortable and fit securely over your ears to protect your hearing. 2 AAA batteries are required for use.
All safe and responsible gun owners need a working safe to store their gun. The Liberty HDX-250 Star Vault is a smart option for any type of gun owner.
It is small enough to slide under your bed or fit in your nightstand, yet strong enough to prevent tampering or breaking.
With this safe, there is no need to remember a password.
The biometric fingerprint scanner stores up to 20 different user IDs so multiple people can access if necessary. You can even unlock the safe remotely from your phone.
We also love the Verasafe Reach. If you haven’t seen these in action, you have to check it out. Custom fit for Glocks.
This Declare Mesh Hat is the perfect option if you are on a budget or looking for more of a stocking stuffer. Made from 100% cotton, it is soft and comfortable, yet durable. The front is a fashionable camo design with the signature Glock logo in black, and the back is matching tan mesh to offer proper ventilation.
The adjustment in the back is a Velcro strap so it fits virtually anyone. A small tonal American flag patch adorns the side of the hat as well, adding to the overall aesthetic.
Whether it’s an accessory or safety gear, safe or gift card, you can’t go wrong with any of these gift options. Whichever route you choose, the Glock owner on your list will be having a merry Christmas for sure.
