WALKER SLIM SHOOTER ELECTRONIC EAR MUFFS

One of the best presents that you can give a father who shoots often is the gift of hearing.  Over the years, people who have spent years around firearms without any ear protection have diminished hearing.Ear Muffs that are specifically designed for shooting are the perfect answer to preventing additional hearing loss the next time he heads out to the gun range.

Shooting ear muffs are unique; unlike regular ear muffs that drown out all noises, these are built to block out only the high decibel sounds. This means that every time a shot is fired, the ear muffs will block the sound, but you are able to talk regularly. It can even enhance normal speaking tones, so your dad will be able to hear the directions from the range officer or talk easily with his buddies without taking off his ear protection.

They have a slim profile, which makes them a great choice for your dad to throw in his bag every time he hits the range.

SPOTTING SCOPE

Another great gift for any dad who loves to spend his off days at the range or hunting is a spotting scope. These scopes range in price, but if you can invest in a quality one, it may just last a lifetime.

When buying a spotting scope, there are a few things that you should look for. First, you want an objective lens of at least 60mm or more. This important component will allow the most light and provide a bright image.  

Another thing to consider is whether he would prefer a fixed sight or a variable power. The fixed sight has only one magnification, so it will work for ranges up to one hundred yards. But if he shoots his gun at a greater distance, you may want to consider one with a variable scope, so he can adjust the zoom to see targets farther away. Whether dad shoots at the range or is an avid hunter, you can't go wrong with a spotting scope.
