Gift Ideas for Gun Enthusiasts

When you live surrounded by gun-totin' good ol' boys and gals, gift-giving is a bit of a problem. Most gift guides for gun lovers talk about fancy high-tech stuff that you can't understand. And besides, if he wants a target-seeking reloading bench, he'll buy it himself.

Buy Pistol Mug

But this gift guide is different. Here you'll find comprehensible (if weird!) gift ideas picked out by a sympathetic non-gun nut. Some are useful, some are funny, some are rather tasteless. But that's okay, they'll make your lead-slinger's eyes light right up.

Whether you're gift-shopping for your father, husband, or boyfriend, I've found you something that's right on target. All suggestions have been smoke-tested by genuine gun nuts, attaining the gold standard reaction of "Hey, I want that!"

Shotgun Shells All the Way

My Dad had a homemade string of shotgun shell lights around the door of his loading room for years - Mom used to hang it in the living room for Christmas. Nothing evokes the coziness of home like lots of shotgun shells (for some of us, anyway!)

Shot Glasses

Shotgun Shell Pull Chain

12 Gauge Coasters

Shotguns & Shells Hooked Pillow

A classic Colt pistol for your man cave. Just be careful how you pull that trigger!

You know the old saying, "An armed society is a polite society"? Test this by adding ordnance to your dinner, and see if table manners improve.

Cowboys, leave your holsters with the barkeep!

Are You a Gun Nut?

Do you consider yourself a gun nut? Or a unicorn-hugging pacifist? (You're not allowed to be anything in between - the talking heads all say so!)

I like the colt revolver lamp, I prefer revolver than a pistol.

PaigSr from State of Confusion on June 23, 2013:

Actually I might go for a gun type belt buckle. But with all my others (mostly animals) it would have to be stored in another location.

I think I take the bling bling stuff. A woman will always fancy jewelry even if she is not a gun nut!
