Great gift ideas for gun lovers
Picking a new firearm can be a highly personal choice. From sights to cases and everywhere in between, here are some firearm add-ons that will help optimize your loved one’s shooting experience.
The Aimpoint CompM5b red dot sight is a compact, high-performance accessory that is the first to have a built-in, range-compensating turret system. It allows the user to tailor the experience to meet whatever their shooting requirements may be, including wind or lead compensation adjustments. What’s more, it has a flip-up lens cover, which is solid on the front and transparent on the back, allowing for shooting with both eyes open and the lens caps closed in the case of an emergency.
