    Hi All,

    I do not own any guns, and I haven't even shot one myself, so I'm not aware of everything "gun". However, my father in law is an avid gun owner, and I am hoping to find him a neat accessory for Christmas.

    In the past I have given him an initialed leather King Ranch pistol carrier and ammo cases. I have also gifted him a King Ranch rifle shirt (I did a lot of work down in King Ranch, so I was at the gift shop a lot ;) ).

    He recently got an AR-15 (I think), and he has a various assortment of pistols. He does not hunt...or has only a few times...he just likes to collect and shoot.

    Any thoughts? I'm struggling!!!!

    Thank you!

    If he doesn't have a good place to shoot regularly, a gun range membership might be nice. You've definitely come to the right forum. Welcome, join in with the conversations.

    Welcome to TGT.

    A high quality knife is always a good choice.
    Gun guys usually dig knives as well so a nice quality folding knife is usally a hit.
    Check out You can get them with his initials engraved.

    A high quality pair of small binoculars are another good choice. Leica, Ziess, etc make small pocket sized models that are very handy.

    Lesser costs items could be a nice range bag.
    There are many types and choices.

    Another possibility is a quality flashlight such as a Surefire.
    Don’t forget the batteries. LoL.

    Agreed. And we apparently agree on which brand is best.

    Sometimes it's cool to have one that's basically impractical but just feels luxurious. I like the Bagmaster bags and have one of their leather ones in each size they make. This is the middle size that I find I use all the time.

    Note that it no longer appears you can order direct from Bagmaster. I've also seen Bagmaster bags made for other companies; Brownell's used to have a "signature" line of range bags that were just Bagmaster bags with a Brownells label on the side.
