Valentine’s Day is upon us and that means shopping for the perfect gift for your sweetheart. While we always recommend a gun as one of the best gifts you can offer, sometimes rifles, pistols or shotguns are just slightly out of reach. For that reason, we’ve gathered up some great quick gear ideas for shoppers looking for versatile, functional gifts for gun folks.

Targets and Ammo

One thing any gun owner is sure to use on the range is targets. Though these tend to be affordable, constantly buying your own can add up. For this reason, consider stocking up on multiple packs of targets. Champion Targets, in particular, makes colorful and game-oriented targets that help gun owners work on skills or just have fun plinking. If your sweetheart has the luxury of a backyard range, take shooting to the next level by investing in a set of steel targets.

You can gift targets without also adding in some ammo for range day. Plinkers will appreciate value boxes of Winchester or American Eagle. Nothing says love like a full mag!

Scopes, Red Dots and More

Optics are an easy means to increase accuracy while shooting and anything that makes your loved one smile on the range is worth investing in. While scopes help magnify targets, they also pull double duty providing markings that allow shooters to predict where shots will land once the trigger is pulled.

Red dots —which fit onto rifles or pistols – are a non-magnifying means to accurately place shots on target. These handy tools opt for an illuminated dot that serves as an aim point for shooters. Some shooters find red dots much easier to use than traditional iron sights.

Though a good scope or red dot isn’t going to be easy on the wallet, these gifts are practical and functional.

Range Gear

Range gear makes a great gift because you can personalize it to your loved one or even go all out and create a range ready gift basket. Things to include when shopping:

While we’re on the topic of range gear let’s not forget range clothes. Help your gun owner preserve their everyday wear by grabbing some range wear for them to sport while plinking. 5.11 Tactical and Vertx make decent options for men and women that are proven to hold up while training.

Guns.com also has a nice selection of gun themed sweatshirts, hats, and short-sleeved and long-sleeved t-shirts perfect to don on any range day— we prefer the aptly styled “Guns” model.
