The holiday season is right around the corner and that means filling up stockings. You could go the predictable route with chocolates, toiletries and socks, but why not make that stocking more exciting and special for the shooters in your life? Here are 5 ideas to get those stockings stuffed and loaded.
While the ancient practice of plinking paper may never become obsolete, today’s shooters can have a lot more fun with reactive targets. Reactive or splatter targets use different colourful layers to instantly mark where your bullet hits. This makes them especially fun for kids, but also extremely handy for shooters without the best eye-sight. Or if someone special is an adrenaline junkie then an exploding target like the FireBird Exploding Sniper Fire Clays might be a perfect choice.
Help the new (or veteran) shooter in your life keep their firearms in tip-top condition. A full kit like the Real Avid Zip-Wire Rifle Cleaning Kit could literally be one of the most useful gifts you ever give. Shooting guns require cleaning and maintenance. If you’re gifting a shooter’s first cleaning kit, look for something that covers a variety of different calibres, to keep firearms pristine as the collection grows.
The perfect accessory for any avid shooter, outdoorsman, or hunter, knives come in handy more than you would think and just like guns, you can never have too many. Home knife, truck knife, pocket knife, bag knife, you get the picture. If that special person already has a great selection of knives a Buck EdgeTek Dual Flat Pocket Stone Sharpener will slide into a stocking just as easily as it does a pocket and will keep those blades sharp with its 100% diamond coated flat surface.
If that special someone of yours is also into hunting, help get them set up for the next season with some new accessories. And, depending on what they hunt we got a ton of stuff that will slide nicely into their stocking including game calls, processing supplies and a ton of other hunting accessories.
With so many Canadian ranges and shooting organizations out there, it’s always great to show support. There’s no better way than purchasing and repping their merch. Whether it be your local range or a national organization like the CNFA or the CCFR, a t-shirt or hat is the perfect stocking stuffer to support the Canadian shooting community.
We hope this helps you narrow down some stocking stuffer ideas for your friends and family. A shooter can never have too many accessories and the stocking is the perfect place for them. From all of us at Canada’s Gun Store, we wish you and yours a happy holiday season!
Happy shooting and stay safe!
