Targets are probably the most practical, not to mention most affordable, gift you can get for dad. Don’t let him overspend by getting targets from the range, instead treat him to one of the fine and affordable targets we have for sale.

Maybe dad trains for concealed carry so an IPSC style target would be good. Perhaps dad is a hunter so one of our whitetail or turkey targets would work better.

Either way, you’ll be sure to find some good targets for well under $50, saving a little extra money to get him that box of ammo to go with.

Eye Protection

Let’s face it, eye and ear protection are required to go to the range. While it’s hard to get excited about new ear protection, new eyewear is always nice because it can be useful away from the range too.

Whether dad is more utilitarian or whether he likes to show off in style we have the eye pro for him. Show off in style with names like Oakley or Magpul or go with a simple but affordable option from Walker’s Game Ear. Either way, new eye pro is always a sure bet.
