Valentine's Day Gift Guide for the Shooting Enthusiast

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for the Shooting Enthusiast

Ah, it’s Valentine’s Day again. The day of requisite procrastination and all that comes with it. Half-eaten mystery chocolates, bottom of the barrel love cards in the pharmacy aisle and, of course, the person who is impossible to shop for. But not this year. Guns & Ammo has come to the rescue with some nifty his-and-her gifts, and we think you’re going to appreciate at least a few. And they all pair well with that pharmacy love card.

SureFire Stilleto Multi-Output Rechargeable Pocket LED Flashlight

Valentine's Day

Does your significant other have ninja-like reflexes? Or is currently practicing? Then this is the flashlight for them. The Stiletto’s slim design allows it to be drawn and activated from a pocket as fast as a knife. It is a rechargeable, high-output handheld flashlight – ideal for anyone’s everyday carry kit. The primary switch on the body activates a wide 650-lumen, medium 250-lumen or dialed-down 5-lumen beam for tasks using a MaxVision Beam reflector.

Lucky Shot USA Couple’s Gift Set

Valentine's Day

“This four-piece collection features our projectile-embedded pint and wine glasses plus our 50-caliber corkscrew and bottle opener to get the libations and the romance flowing,” says luckyshotusa.com, and I have absolutely no doubt. While they are offering free shipping and 10 percent off, does the flowing romance come with a guarantee?

Hornady Critical Defense Lite 9mm 100-gr. FTX

Valentine's Day

What if I told you that you could buy a critical defense bullet — lite — with low recoil, easy to see in the dark (good for keeping your vision in tack in those low-light situations) AND supports breast cancer research? Hornady’s Critical Defense is doing just that. Their patented Flex Tip technology used in Critical Defense ammunition even eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets. And being so light weight, these 9mm Luger 100-grain FTX Critical Defense Lite’s even great for compact personal protection. An all-around win.

SIG Sauer P320 White Compact Grip Module

Valentine's Day

“Install your P320/P250 firing control unit into this Grip Module Assembly to convert to a P320 or P250 compact chambered in 9mm, .40 AUTO, or .357SIG with a small grip size. Requires the 9mm, .40 AUTO, .357SIG slide and barrel.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. Backed up by more than 150 years of gun manufacturing experience, SIG Sauer has nothing less than a 5-star rating on Amazon.com when it comes to these very-affordable grips. How can over a 1,000 people be wrong?

5.11 Tactical Women’s Fury Boot

Valentine's Day

For anyone out there who’s still trying to find the way to a woman’s heart, it’s always through her shoes. These booties from 5.11 Tactical are aptly named “Women’s Fury” because there is nothing about them that looks wishy-washy. They are tough enough to wear anywhere, including a day at the range, and can be worn all day long without being reminded they’re there. (Cue past memories of bad-shoe blisters here.) How? The 5.11 Women’s Fury Boot has a surface-hugging Vibram outsole and an Ortholite X-25 footbed that explains the comfort. For under $60, it’s a steal.

Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite Davidson’s Gallery of Guns Exclusive

Valentine's Day

If you want a real conversation starter that’s also a bit of the silent type (or can be anyway), the Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite is a great match. Threaded barrel models are compatible with the Silent-SR sound suppressor and feature a lightweight, ventilated, aerospace-grade aluminum receiver and a tensioned stainless-steel barrel. A contoured ejection port and easy-to-grasp bolt ears allow for durable and reliable operation round after round and a simple, one-button takedown for easy field-stripping and proper chamber-to-muzzle cleaning. Almost best of all? Its red anodized finish and movie-star looks.

Springfield Armory 911 Alpha .380 ACP

Valentine's Day

The Springfield 911 Alpha in .380 ACP might just be the perfect pairing to that bouquet of roses. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket yet maintains the quality and handling characteristics of the 1911 platform. With an MSRP of just $429, this little number easily surpasses that teddy bear you bought last year.

Aimpoint Adventure Game (App or Online)

Valentine's Day

For anyone looking for something new to do this year for the day of love, Aimpoint offers an online hunting game will make you forget Words with Friends ever existed (though there will always be us WWF die-hards). Compete against others, sharpen your skills and unlock levels from hunting wild boar to elk. I’d tell you exactly what that ultimate animal hunt is, but I’m still working my way through. The graphics are so real and aiming the shot through my scope was so easy, I felt a pang in my heart for that first boar. But I sure loved unlocking the next level. Gamers unite!

Camp Chef Flat Top Grill 475

Valentine's Day

If, like me, you live in a place where it’s unbearably cold half the year, then the thoughts you conjure up when you think of the word “grilling” are “yum” and “Only a few more months.” For months we’ve been living without all that’s wonderful about summer — grilled, fragrant food of all sorts. Instead we find ourselves fighting the elements that make decent grilling impossible — ice, snow, cold that just won’t leave. Now that spring is just around the corner, your significant other needs a gift for the warmer days ahead. Enter the Camp Chef Flat Top Grill 475. It includes flat top griddle, true seasoned surface, non-stick & ready to cook, three 12,000 BTU stainless steel burners, a matchless ignition system, grease management system for easy clean up, micro adjust griddle levelers, a propane tank holder, adjustable leg levers and a cold rolled steel griddle. Now all that’s missing is the family grill master. Happy back-to-grilling season.

Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
