We’ve assembled seven great ideas for gifts that anyone looking to get extra tactical this holiday season will love. Check out how to make the tactical fan in your life happy this holiday season.

America’s Rifle: The AR-15

Chances are that if your tactical loved one has been in the circle for a while, they already have an AR-15. What’s better than one AR? Two, of course! If you’re in a state where you can legally gift a gun, then there may be no better present under the tree than an AR-15. Perhaps, they have an AR-15 already but have been eyeing up an AR pistol, another great option for home defense. 

Check out our wide selection of AR-15’s below, just be sure to move on the one you like. While it may be here today, there's no guarantee it will be there tomorrow.


Drum Mags

While 10, 15, and 30 round mags are great, what really turns heads at the range is a drum mag. Why hold 30 rounds when you can hold 50 or 75 instead?  Think of all the time that could be saved on reloading by owning a drum mag! Think of all the extra ammo you’ll have to buy to fill it, what a deal! 

Whether you’re looking for the always tactical 5.56, or the less tactical .22 LR, we've got you covered with a large selection of drum mags below.


Red Dot or LVPO

All those who are tacti-cool must mount an optic up top, irons just won’t cut it. Some prefer red-dots, while others choose low powered variable optics for their ARs. If you can’t decide between a red dot or an LVPO, then why not choose both? Some, especially in the competitive shooting circuit, will mount an optic up top with a red dot mounted canted off to their right side. This allows the shooter to hit closer shots that might be too close for the optic. You can imagine how this might be really helpful in a home defense scenario as well.

Whether your tactical loved one wants a new optic or is looking to add a red dot to the equation we got you covered with a variety of optics at great prices.



Night Vision or Thermal

Are you even tactical if you can’t shoot accurately at night? Whether your tactical sweetheart wants to defend the castle at night or pick off hogs from a distance, night vision or thermals will suit them well. In the past, these types of optics would require a small fortune or military clearance. These days though, you can find options for night vision optics for under $1,000. Be the star of the holidays this year by giving the gift of night vision for a holiday they’ll never forget.



Tactical Pistol

Looking to pair that new AR with a tactical sidearm? Many manufacturers make tactical handguns for those looking to add suppressors, lights, or lasers to their handgun setup. Again, if you live in a state where you can legally gift a gun then there may not be a better gift to wake up to. Typically, these pistols will have larger capacities and lots will have threaded barrels, begging to be suppressed. 



Strikeman Laser Firearm Training System
