For Father’s Day: Nikon, Springfield, and More

For this Father’s day if you’re looking for an interesting gift that isn’t a “Number 1 Dad” mug, but rather, something a little more sporting, look to Nikon and Springfield Armory to get you the good stuff.

For a limited time, Nikon is offering a rebate on their 10-22×50 Action Zoom XL binoculars. Whether your dad is a bird hunter or bird watcher, these Porro prism binocs are an updated replacement of Nikon’s classic 50mm Zoom binoculars. They’re rubberized and ruggedized for all types of outdoor usage.

Featuring 10-22x magnification, these binoculars have large and bright 50mm objective lenses with a scratch-resistant multicoat finish. Normally they run about $120. Nikon’s mail-in rebate kicks back $40 at you, which is just outstanding.  The promotion is good from now ’til June 18th.

Now if your dad is a Springfield fan, you definitely want to head over to the Springfield Store, because for their promotion, everything they sell is 30 percent off.  That’s 30 percent off magazines, holsters, cases, range bags, all that fun shooting-related stuff.

But Springfield offers way more than just gun accessories, they have all kinds of nifty stuff, like shot glasses, clocks, posters, even bar stools featuring Springfield’s crossed canons logo for you to rest your cheeks on. We suppose that means this sale is good for Glock fans, too. Anyway, all of it is 30 percent off.

If you’re looking for something small and classy, there are more than a few varieties of shooting-related cufflinks for you to peruse. “Custom jeweler Sofia Winberg makes totally unique cufflinks.  She makes custom gold and silver cufflinks from molds cast on bullets or cartridges you send her.  They may not have a place at the range but when you have to look your sharpest, you can still show some gun.”

It’s not all custom-cast silver cufflinks. We found a bunch of different cufflinks that would make excellent Father’s Day gifts right here.

If you’re looking for something totally unique to do with him, have you considered a rifle golf vacation? “Just a quick trip north of Salt Lake City is Spirit Ridge Rifle Golf, a riflemen’s playground on 10,000-acres of rolling landscape that truly embodies Utah’s Big Sky country.  And, as the name may suggest, since 2005 they have been the only club in the US that plays what could very well turn into the shooting world’s latest and greatest leisure activity, Rifle Golf.”

But if what you really want is something your dad can use every day, a nice little reminder, just get him an AK magazine ice cube tray. “Are you tired of serving vodka on the rocks when all the rocks you have are cuboid?  Have been toiling to find a way to cool your gins and tonic with a zeal that matches your passion for juniper-based spirits?

Then this father’s day, you need to check out these AK-magazine-shaped ice cube trays. In any case, have fun, and raise a glass to the old man.
