So, you’ve fiddled around and realized that Father’s Day is just a few days away and you haven’t yet got your dad his gift. Shame on you!

Twenty years ago, that would have meant disaster. But thanks to Amazon Prime, there is a plethora of shooting-related gifts that can still be delivered to your pop’s house before Sunday—if you order soon. By the way, don’t worry that your father might already have one or more of these items. This is the kind of stuff that no man can have too many in his range bag or shooting closet.


Walker’s Razor Slim Earmuffs

Ear protection is critical to ensure that your dad can hear well into his golden years, and Walker’s Razor Slim Earmuffs will get the job done well and with style. They feature dynamic shooting range high-definition speakers for clear sound with sound-activated compression reaction of 0.02 seconds with independent volume controls. They have a noise reduction rating of 23 dB and run on two AAA batteries, that are included in the package.


SureFire G2X Pro Dual-Output LED Flashlight

Show me a dad that doesn’t want another small, bright, high-quality flashlight, and I’ll show you a guy that doesn’t spend enough time outdoors at night. For such a small package, this SureFire G2X Pro Dual-Output model will really light up the dark. With two output levels—15 lumens for extended run time and 600 lumens for maximum light—this flashlight is as versatile as it is rugged and attractive.


Rush Creek Creations Portable Cleaning Mat

For some dads, gun cleaning is a chore, while for others it is a passion. Regardless of where your dad lies on that spectrum, he’ll love this Portable Cleaning Mat from Rush Creek Creations. This high-quality, durable, waxed canvas gun cleaning mat features heavy duty straps and large locking clasps. And the three internal pockets can hold bore-cleaning kits, cloths and all gun cleaning accessories. Length when rolled out is 67×16 inches.


Bushnell Prime 1500 Hunting Laser Rangefinder

Accurate distance readings are necessary for accurate shooting, whether on the range or in the field. The Bushnell Prime 1500 Hunting Laser Rangefinder features Bushnell’s EXO Barrier coating, which bonds to exterior lens surfaces and repels water, oil, fog, dust and debris. Able to range out to nearly a mile, it features an ARC (Angle Range Compensation) Mode that measures true distances uphill and downhill for accurate shots on target.

CRKT Drifter Everyday Carry Folding Knife

A small, lightweight, high-quality folding knife is a dad’s best friend, and CRKT knows how to make them. At only 4.75 inches overall length and weighing in at just 2.4 ounces, the CRKT Drifter EDC Folding Knife features a 2.88-inch blade—plenty big enough for most daily tasks. The drop-point blade is made of alloy steel, and the handle material is black fiberglass. I got so excited writing about this little knife that I ordered one for myself in case my kids don’t come through this Father’s Day!

  1. I like to buy my own gifts. I always get exactly what I want. This year is a new Randall knife.

    • No no no very bad idea. Don’t do that.

      I see the humor, assume you are joking, but very bad idea.

      • @XZX, I take my aids out and use hearing protection. I don’t want to lose what little natural hearing I still have. I appreciate your advice and concern.

        • I figured, I was just worried that one of the millions of little kids who read and discuss our enlightening screeds daily might not quite get it.


          • Yeah XZX this growing old ain’t for the weak. I had to quit driving a year ago due to poor eyesight. If you hear I am driving, stay indoors where you’ll be safe. If you’re a dad, happy father’s day.

    • Chainsaws, swings saws, chop saws heavy equipment and explosions. All before hearing protection was a thing. I’m getting me a white drivers license next trip to DMV.
      My girlfiend uses sign language, but all she knows is how to tell me I’m number 1.

  2. My granddaughters birthday falls on fathers day. Ole Dad takes a back seat.
    Fine with me.

    • fathers day was inventedby hallmark cards. Ironicaly they only sell about tow dozen cards in chicago for the holiday
