G&A 2014 Holiday Gift Guide

2014 Holiday Gift Guide

As gun enthusiasts on Santa's 'good list' this year, we deserve all of the best guns, ammo and gear. Great gifts abound at shopping malls and outlet stores, but most aren't much better than a lump of coal in the bottom of our stockings. The only items that put jolly smiles on our faces are those that come from gun shops and help us get on target in style.

So scratch that new teddy bear sweater off your list and take a look at these great gift ideas that will make your holiday go out with a bang.

Liberty Home Safe

A home safe is arguably one of the best investments that a gun owner can make, which means it is an even better gift to give. Available in a variety of sizes to fit any firearm collection, Liberty's line of home safes will protect your loved ones' firearms from theft, fire and misuse. Even better is Liberty's Warranty policy. If anyone attempts to break into your safe, or it is involved in a fire, Liberty will repair or replace it for free.
