10 Father's Day Gifts for the Shooting Dad

10 Father's Day Gifts for the Shooting Dad

Father's day is an opportunity to show your dad what he means to you. Chances are he is the foundation of your interest in firearms. Most of us were taught to shoot by our fathers at a young age, whether through sporting clays, plinking with a .22 or being brought along on our first hunt.

Father's day is a great chance to pay him back for bringing you into this hobby you have since grown to love. It seems only fitting that your Father's Day gift should bring you and your dad closer together by getting you guys out to the range for a few hours, but finding that perfect gift can be tough and time consuming.


We've gone ahead and done some of the leg work for you. Below we have compiled a list of the top ten gifts to get your dad this Father's day.



ATN Corp. | X-Sight Day/Night Rifle Scope

This scope is packed with more features than you ever believed possible. It is capable of being used 24/7 and contains a specialized computer, which runs a suite of sensors allowing for a wide variety of features, including night vision, photo, video, geotagging, compass, altitude, speedometer, and the ability to interface with your smart phone. The smooth zoom allows the user to conveniently adjust magnification. This is the perfect gift to show your father all that modern technology has to offer today'™s shooters.

Price: $629.00

BCM | Gunfighter Stock

A new stock can make any rifle feel brand new. BCM'™s Gunfighter stock will improve your father'™s favorite rifle. The stock features a snag free design and modular VBOST, which is able to interface with a rigger'™s band or bungee when the rifle is not in use. Additionally, the sling features two different ambidextrous sling mounts, including the ever-popular QD swivel sockets. The stock is set up modularly to allow for adaptation of many options and configurations. The Gunfighter stock is available in black, FDC, foliage green and wolf gray.

Price: $55.95

Crimson Trace | RailMaster Pro

This offering from Crimson Trace pairs their legendary laser technology with a 100-lumen light in a compact package. Available in both red and green lasers, this features everything you'™ve come to expect from a modern rail mounted laser. The unit features four distinct modes of operation, with fully adjustable windage and elevation controls. The Crimson Trace Pro also features a tap on/tap off control, making it perfect for use on multiple firearm platforms.

Price: $279 for red; $379 for green

HiperFire | HiperTouch 24 3G Trigger

A premium trigger is arguably the single most effective upgrade someone can make to a rifle. If your father has any AR-15 or AR-10 rifle laying around with a stock, mil-spec trigger in it, the HiperFire 24 3G trigger is the perfect father'™s day gift. This trigger was designed for very fast, consistent and controllable repeat fire for 3 gun, DMR or LE use. The thing that makes the 24 3G trigger unique is that it is a single-stage trigger with match-grade quality. The use of a single stage instead of the ever-popular two-stage design allows a shooter to avoid the flinch that often comes from the end of the first stage signaling the firing of the rifle before it actually happens.

Price: $225.00

Gerber | MP1-AR Weapons Multi-Tool

Chances are your father was the person who gave you your first pocketknife or multi-tool. This offering from Gerber is the perfect chance to return the favor, and it is guaranteed to be something he does not have. The MP1-AR is the newest evolution of Gerber'™s AR-15 specific multi-tool and features everything you could need to work on or clean a modern sporting rifle, from takedown pin punches, carbon scrapers and picks. This handy tool even includes a set of bits for all the most common AR accessories and mounts. The device comes with a MOLLE compatible sheath.

Price: $176

Pelican | DW 3300

This is not your typical Pelican case. The DW3300 is a soft case from Pelican designed to fit two weapons with oversized scopes. It is manufactured with highly durable non-moisture absorbent and abrasion resistant material. Additional features include a removable zippered pouch and the ability to double as a shooting mat. The DW3300 is additionally designed to fit within Pelican'™s iM3300 hard case for added protection when needed.

Price: $462.98

SIG Sauer | FMJ Pistol Ammo

SIG Sauer'™s FMJ pistol ammo is designed to mimic the performance of their JHP self defense ammunition. This makes it a great choice for range use, as the performance you'™ll get in target practice will be the same as you will get if you ever find yourself having to use your carry weapon. This brass-cased ammunition is designed to be reliable and clean burning at an affordable price, making it an ideal go-to ammunition for both practice and self defense.

Price: Varies

Springfield Armory | XD Mod. 2

Arguably the best gift a firearm-loving father could receive for father'™s day is another gun. But of all the available models, which one should it be? There are a lot of contenders out there, but the Springfield Armory XD Mod.2 is the right choice. This subcompact pistol is a practical firearm that won'™t just be taken to the range once a year while otherwise gathering dust in the safe. This carry pistol goes above and beyond to correct and overcome one of the largest challenges carry pistols deal with — grip. Featuring the industry leading ergonomics Springfield has dubbed the 'œGripZone,' this pistol has brought ergonomics and comfort to a level previously thought impossible from a carry gun. The GripZone uses three distinct grip patterns and textures to make sure the shooter has complete control at all times. It is available in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.

Price: $549.99 to $599.99

UTG | True Hunter Men\'s Sporting Vest

This sporty stylish vest from UTG is constructed from durable synthetic polyester and nylon mesh for the maximum blend of comfort and durability in extended wear. The vest features open flap chest pockets designed for your smart phone and eye and ear protection, along with hidden horizontal pockets, which are large enough to hold a full sized pistol. Additional inside pockets feature space for an electronic device with a headphone jack, and cord keepers will let you keep your headphones secure during use.

Price: $49.97

Blackhawk | A.R.C. Holster

One thing shooters all agree on is that you can never have too many holsters. Options are great to have with holsters, so you are set to carry in any situation, weather or style of dress. Blackhawk'™s ARC holster is a new offering that deserves a try by every CCW permit holder. The Appendix Reversible Carry (ARC) is fully customizable for cant and ride height, and it can be switched from right hand to left handed carry with a Phillips screwdriver. The holster utilizes friction for retention and is fully adjustable with a retention adjustment screw, so the shooter can set it exactly how they desire.
