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.

This lightweight upper from Aero Precision
boasts all the usual features of a high-end AR-15 upper such as M4 feed ramps, free-float handguard and superb accuracy out of the box. What is unique about the Aero Precision Enhanced Upper
