Instead of burdening you with some long, drawn-out post about the holidays and gift ideas, I'm just going to get straight to the point. Here's a list of five things that the gun guy or gal in your life would love to unwrap this year.

Hoppe's Universal Cleaning Kit

Whether the person you're buying for has one gun or a bunch of guns, I've yet to meet a gun owner who has balked at getting gifted items for cleaning, and Hoppe's hits the "Goldilocks ratio" of items with their Universal Gun Cleaning Kit: not too much, but not too little. This kit includes a 3-piece aluminum cleaning rod, 5 phosphor bronze brushes, 5 mops, Hoppe's No. 9 Gun Bore Cleaner, and Hoppe's Gun Oil.

Birchwood Casey Gallery Resetting Target

Punching holes in paper is all well and good, but there's nothing better than the audible confirmation of ringing steel. In fact, the only way to improve upon it is with a little visual confirmation, too. Birchwood Casey Gallery Resetting Targets allows you to simply hit all four hanging targets and shoot at the resetting target in order to have all four targets drop back down. Not having to leave the shooting bench to go set targets back up saves you valuable time that can be spent shooting instead of resetting.

PELICAN V100 Vault

Safe gun storage is important, whether you're just heading to the range, on the road for travel, or you need to secure things at home. Built for hard use, high impact and supreme weather resistance, new Vault series equipment cases are the most rugged and secure in their class. Measuring 11" × 8" × 4.5" interally, the V100 Vault case is crushproof, dustproof, and weather resistant. Five layers of protective foam and two push button latches offer secure closure with easy-open access, as well as two stainless steel lock hasps that afford extra security during transport.

Vortex Optics SPARC® AR Red Dot 2 MOA

Red dots are a dime a dozen on ARs these days, but just like the host guns, not all red dots are created equal. The SPARC AR is rugged and compact,and the 2 MOA dot is quick to acquire in close-quarters, but fine enough for pin-point accuracy at extended ranges. With a 50,000 hour battery life and night-vision compatibility at the lowest two settings, the SPARC AR red dot will keep working in a variety of conditions - and it'll even turn itself off after 12 hours if you forget to power it down manually. A unique, integrated base allows for hassle-free installation on any AR or similar platform. Plus, Vortex has a lifetime warranty that stands alone in the optics industry.

Arrowhead Carrier Sweatpants

Carrying concealed in sweatpants has always been a challenge because of the waistband. Arrowhead Tactical has solved that problem, and they've done it with unmatched comfort and uncompromising support. The Carrier Sweatpants are the most comfortable sweatpants I've ever worn, with a loose and roomy fit that offers plenty of space for a pistol and spare magazine. Arrowhead Tactical accomplishes this with a patented Carrier Retention Waistband and a Carrier Rapid Clasp Retention Belt that will securely support compact to full-sized handguns in IWB holsters at any position around the waist. Carrying in comfort has never been easier.
