2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

Today in the United States, nearly 14 percent of the 64 million fathers are full-time stay-at-home dads in families where mother’s work outside home. One out of every 12 men in the U.S. Army are dads. And one-third of all father’s say they’d take a pay cut to spend more time with their kids. There’s no doubt that dads are pretty special. They have taught us all the things that seem to be unteachable, like how drive a stick shift, or build a volcano for science class. They’ve picked us up from parties suffered through hours of our math homework and slumber parties. They’ve quietly replanted grass after a summer of slip and slide, given sage advice about the many uses of duct tape, and taught us the value of saving money and working hard. So, how do we honor these omni-patient men in our lives, of whom so much of their grey hair we’re responsible for? (Yep, Dad. This one’s for you.) Guns & Ammo has made it easy by finding a few great gift ideas sure to get the gift juices going. No duct tape needed.

Peltor Sport RangeGuard Electronic Hearing Protector

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

Not only does 3M make a great sporting hearing protector for shooters and hunters, since January 2020, they have doubled their production of N95 respirators to 1.1 billion per year at its global manufacturing facilities, including in the U.S., Asia and Europe — all in the effort to support those affected by the coronavirus outbreak. This is definitely a company worth your support.

3M’s Peltor Sport RangeGuard Electronic Hearing Protector suppresses gunshot noise to protect hearing, while amplifying voices for clear communication. They have a low-profile cup design that works well with shotguns and rifles, and also feature a 3.5mm audio input jack for MP3 and 2-way radio compatibility. Also included is a 4-hour auto shut-off, easy-access battery door with tether (runs on 2 AAA batteries) and durable recessed microphones. With an MSRP of $49.00, you can’t go wrong. Peltor Sport products are available nationwide. 


Blackpoint Tactical Holster

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

“Ordered a standard light holster for my Glock 19 and Inforce APL light. Fit and finish on the holster is superb. Gun and light click into place smoothly and securely. Easy to draw as well, no binding or hesitation.”


“Wear mine under a flannel open button-up shirt, no printing. Overall, one of the best holsters I’ve owned!”


“I can honestly say the Blackpoint belt loops are the best in the industry. The metal loops pull the gun in closer for more concealment.”

“The 1 3/4 loops are tight on the 5.11 belt and don’t allow any movement — you don’t have to keep readjusting your Roscoe and give your concealment away to others.”

With nothing but five-star reviews, the IWB and OWB Blackpoint Tactical Holster customers say it all, with customizable comfort and flexibility, making it a sure-fire gift win.


Lockdown the Puck, $109

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

Does the dad on your gift list have things worth protecting? A vault, cigars, or a wine cellar? Most likely he does. The Lockdown Logic App will put protection in the palm of the hand.


There are many areas that it is imperative to maintain a safe level of temperature and humidity. The Puck keeps constant monitor and by using The Logic App, Dad can set thresholds to be notified of dangerous conditions. A running log of readings will also allow him to detect trends and take preemptive future actions.

Connecting the Puck with the Logic App will also allow for full control of the puck, no matter where your dad, husband, son, grandfather, nephew, stepdad, brother or cousin is. (Whew!) The Puck notifies the user with an audible beep and app notification when a door or drawer has been opened or closed. Using adjustable vibration sensors, the user can also set The Puck to alert when there’s any movements or vibrations.


Federal Punch Ammo

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

Unlike Federal’s law enforcement bullets, which are designed to perform well when fired through a variety of barriers like steel and plywood, Punch ammo is a Federal Premium product designed specifically with the personal defender in mind. During the development of Punch ammunition, Federal’s engineering team set out to create a brand-new Federal Premium bullet that excelled in evaluations that were most relevant to typical self-defense scenarios, primarily bare gel and heavy clothing. They used what they’d learned about jacket skives, which metals to use, and other aspects of handgun bullet design and applied that to engineering the optimum self-defense bullet.


“Concealed-carry permit holders, especially new shooters, need an uncomplicated answer to the question ‘What ammo do I need for self-defense’,” said Federal Handgun Ammunition Product Manager Chris Laack. “Things to consider such as function, reliable ignition, barrier performance, terminal performance, ballistics and other considerations are a lot to digest for most people. What consumers really need to know is it will function in their gun, every time, and that it will be effective stopping a threat as quickly as possible. Punch is our easy answer for them.”

Starting at $15.99, this ammo is selling fast. Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online by visiting federalpremium.com.

SIG Sauer Academy Ultimate Concealed Carry Course

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

“Congratulations on your decision to join the ranks of the always prepared. Because if there’s one thing you know, it’s that you never know when you may need to protect yourself and your loved ones.” And what better gift could that be?

At the time of this writing, SIG Sauer is offering five extensive 2-day concealed carry courses over the summer which will cover practical considerations for concealed carry, as well as advanced shooting tactics, that when called upon, “gives you more than a fighting chance.” Once enrolled, the student will balance classroom and range time, while SIG cover essentials like gear and clothing selection, then will work the same drills taught to law enforcement that will allow him to effectively protect himself in everyday environments. Drills include firing from a concealed carry posture, close proximity techniques for violent encounters and identification and utilization of cover.

At $500 each, slots are going quickly. But are they worth it? SIG says they are. “Statistics are largely made up of those who are unprepared. You, on the other hand, will be very, very prepared after taking this course.”


Springfield Armory Hellcat and the Hellcat 13-Round Magazine

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

What dad wouldn’t want the bragging rights of having the world’s highest capacity micro 9mm, especially if it’s a Hellcat? Dubbed the “definitive concealed carry handgun,” the 17.9-ounce, 3-inch barreled micro compact pistol features a capacity of 11+1 with its patented magazine—13+1 with the included extended mag— and features a seamless cover plate that removes to allow direct mounting of a micro red dot to the slide for the lowest possible profile. The U-Dot sight system is made up of a high visibility tritium and luminescent front sight paired with a tactical rack U-notch rear for a quick-to-engage sighting system. The +P rated Hellcat (MSRP $599) features a hammer forged steel barrel and billet machined slide, both featuring Melonite coating. The easy to grip and hold frame features Adaptive Grip Texture, a pressure activated texture pattern of staggered pyramid shapes. A high-hand beavertail and undercut triggerguard situate the pistol low in the hand for maximum control. This make the Hellcat a recipe for a great conceal carry for any dad on your list.

Don’t forget the 13-round Hellcat magazine! $39.99.
