GUNS 2012 Christmas Gift Guide

Makin’ Your Shopping Simple!

It’s that time again, folks, so break out your Naughty & Nice List, number the names of the numptys on it, grab a marker, and start highlighting who-gets-what on these pages. Oh, what do I want for Christmas? Hmmm. I’d like a round tuit; not a square one, or one of those common hexagonal tuits. There are so many things I’d like to do, if I could just get a round tuit. Wood is fine, solid brass is better. Thanks in advance, and Merry Christmas!

Outdoorsman’s Axe and Shears

Just seeing the Browning “Buckmark” on a gift puts a grin on any hunter’s mug, and Browning’s new Outdoorsman’s Axe and Shears will be used and treasured for years. The axe is hot-forged, hollowground and tank-tough, and the shears will lop big branches as well as briskets and bones quick and slick. The axe lists for just $64.95 and the shears are only $41.95; not much for your coveted title of “Best Gift-Givin’ Buddy Ever,” don’t ya think?

survival tool

Survivit Tool

How ’bout something your lucky giftee will love, carry every day, and use hard for a lifetime? Try the Survivit Tool from Triple Eight Professional. Compact but built super-strong of AUS8 stainless for the 1.75″ blade and 420 stainless for the handle slabs and pocket clip, it’s only 3″ long and packs a seat belt/cord cutter, prying/scraping surface and serious slashing serrations. The Survivit puts big-tool power in a tiny package for just $75. Designed by our own Publishing Potentate Roy Huntington, I’m sure he uses one to slash up my work. That’s OK, I use one to cut up his critiques!

guns & coffee

I Love Guns & Coffee

Anyone on your gift list who loves guns and coffee? All of ’em? Gotcha covered! When Starbucks stood up to the hollering hoplophobes demanding that the coffee chain post their shops as “gun-free zones”—meaning “easy victim pens”—fans showed their appreciation by boosting Starbucks’ business and wearing cool I Love Guns & Coffee tees, tanks, hoodies and caps, and proudly bringing in their own lovin’ cups. The shirts are excellent quality, and the cup holds a man-sized bucket o’ Joe!
