Otis I-MOD Cleaning System

Originally designed for the U.S. military, the I-MOD cleaning system from Otis Technologies is now available to civilian shooters. It’s the perfect cleaning kit for your range bag or your backpack and includes all the tools you need to clean your gun from top to bottom. The I-MOD has a metal rod, an all-purpose receiver brush, Memory Flex cables, a bore brush, a slotted tip and patches. It even comes with Otis’ Ripcord for quick, one-pass cleaning. It’s available in single-caliber and dual-caliber options. ($79.08; OtisTec.com)

Ontario Knife Company Cerberus

You don’t need a knife. That is, until you need a knife. Add OKC’s Cerberus to your range bag, and you’ll never have to borrow a knife again. Because you always borrow one, don’t you? The 4.8-inch blade will cut anything, anywhere and is made with D2 tool steel and is .188 inches thick. The fixed-blade knife is 10.2 inches overall and comes with a black ergonomic handle, a black zinc phosphate blade and a brown Kydex sheath. Even better, it’s built in the USA. ($265; OntarioKnife.com)

Hoppes Gun Medic Cleaner and Lube

Clean and lube in one pass? Hoppe's Gun Medic allows you to do both, so you can do a quick clean and lube when you don't have time for a thorough cleaning. It's the perfect addition to your field or range bag. Simply spray down your gun and put it in its case for worry-free temporary storage. The cleanser evaporates in 60 seconds and leaves a thin layer of lubricant that protects your gun unti you can give it a top-to-bottom cleaning. ($12.95; Hoppes.com)

Bullets.com (Grizzly Industrial) Loading Blocks

Stay organized and look good as you crank out your favorite handloads with Bullets.com's new acrylic loading blocks. Made from solid blocks of acrylic, these handy tools not only keep your brass upright and stable, they add another touch of class to your already-classy loading bench. Every hole has a secondary primer pocket so the primer does not make contact with the bottom. Each hole, along with the block's edge, has a smooth, polished chamfer. Available in 13 calibers. ($11.95- ; Bullets.com)

MTM Quick Rest

No room for a bulky rest? MTM’s Quick Rest is made for you. It’s perfect for shooters on the go, on a budget or who just need a simple, no-fuss rest that sets up anywhere. Hunting camp, the backyard range, even the back of your truck. The one-piece rest is built from a single piece of molded plastic and has wide, wobble- and skid-free feet, a convenient handle and a no-mar, no-slip shooting rest. It’s made in the USA. ($10.99; MTMCase-Gard.com)

BlackHawk TecGrip Holster

Go clipless with Blackhawk’s inside-the-waistband holster. It’s made with TecGrip, which clings to almost any material and eliminates the need for a visible (and uncomfortable) clip. The holster is built with closed-cell foam for a comfortable, snug fit. The holster is ambidextrous and is available in nine sizes to fit the smallest or the largest gun you want to carry. It’s machine washable and is made with a thermal-bonded, three-layer laminate for durability. ($24.95; Blackhawk.com)

Yankee Hill Machine .30-Caliber Blast Deflector

Make peace at your range by installing a Yankee Hill Machine blast deflector on your muzzle. It reduces side concussion and directs it downrange, saving your ears and the ears of those next to you. YHM’s blast deflector works with a variety of YHM quick-detach devices and attaches and detaches just like a suppressor. It attaches fast and is virtually impossible to disengage. ($79; YHM.net)

Pro Ears Pro 200 Series

Pro Ears recently updated its Pro 200 Series electronic ear muffs, giving them a more modern look and offering them at a more attractive price point. They feature a spring form steel headband for increased compression and a durable construction and offer 19 decibels of noise reduction for damaging sounds as well as 15 decibels of amplification for non-harmful sounds. The user is able to hear commands and speech clearly while remaining protected against muzzle blasts and other loud sounds courtesy of the Pro 200’s exclusive DLSC compression technology, and the ear muffs carry a 3-year warranty. ($99.99; ProEars.com)

Only two of the items were under $100:

Magic Chef appliances with the Realtree Xtra pattern, Coffeemaker MSRP $49.99

 

Outdoor Edge Para-Claw - MSRP $30
Para-Claw is an appropriate name for what looks like a benign bracelet made of woven 550 paracord. Intended for everyday carry (EDC), the Para-Claw conceals a 1½-inch hawkbill blade that’s been ground from stainless steel and coated with a BlackStone finish.

I got one of these for $1 plus $6 shipping:

Paracord Survival Knife Bracelet

CHRISTMAS AMMO
by Massad Ayoob
10 Dec 18

For shooters you want to remember on Christmas, no matter what your budget, consider ammunition. Your gift budget simply determines the volume.

Big box stores sell shotgun shells in birdshot loads for less than a sawbuck for a box of 25. Deer rifle ammo will run $16 to $25 for a box of twenty standard soft-nose rounds, more for high-tech premium. A box of 20 rounds of defensive carry ammo for handguns will go for $20 to $30 at your gun shop, and that includes some of the best high-tech stuff. .22 Long Rifle, of course, is even cheaper.

A few caveats on that, though. First, make sure the ammo is right for the gun. 3” Magnum 12 gauge shells won’t be right for a 12 gauge shotgun with the standard 2 ¾” chambering. .45 Auto ammo won’t work in a revolver chambered for .45 Colt. Gun dealers can tell you stories about customers who bought the wrong ammo for someone else, or even themselves.

Have a chat with the giftee about their favorite ammo. A hunter who goes after ducks exclusively will need steel or bismuth shot, not lead. A lot of defense-minded gun owners are very type-specific and even brand-specific about what they’ll put in their carry or bedside gun. My dad was a smoker, and a carton of unfiltered Camels was always among the things I got him for Christmas; if I had given him a carton of Lucky Strikes instead, he might have disowned me. Some shooters are like that with their ammo brands. Just as the bourbon connoisseur who insists on Knob Creek won’t be drinking even a gift bottle of Bubba’s Generic, the serious shooter who loads his 9mm with 147 grain Federal HST or 124 grain +P Speer Gold Dot wants only that, and not a substitute. If you give your deer-hunting cousin a box of 150-grain .30/30 ammo, it probably won’t hit to the exact same point of aim/point of impact coordinates as the 170-grain loads he sighted his rifle in for, and it could be the difference between a hit and a miss, a cleanly bagged or horribly crippled animal next hunting season.

There may be some folks on your gift list who need good ammo more than others. Those will tend to be the casual as opposed to “enthusiast” gun owners. Your neighbor who shoots a deer every year but hasn’t bought a box of ammo in two or three years will probably be loading with ammo that got chewed up running it through his Winchester ’94 every time he loaded and unloaded it, and that can deform the rounds sufficiently to impair accuracy. The guy who unloads his carry pistol every night and then reloads it and rechambers the same round the next morning has almost certainly compromised the cartridge that has been in and out of the chamber more than a couple of times. Some folks need to think about that more, and the person who gives them good, fresh ammo may literally save their life, depending how the future goes.

My most memorable Christmas in terms of gifts was probably my twelfth. My dad gave me a Colt 1911 .45 pistol, military surplus, that turned out to have been manufactured in 1918. I still have it, and shot it this year to commemorate its centennial. But you know, that same year my sister gave me a shoulder holster to go with it, and one uncle gave me a box of Winchester .45 ACP ammo for it, all together under the tree. And I remember Elizabeth’s gift and Uncle Whitney’s just as much as my dad’s, more than half a century later.

Just sayin’…
