Default Gift Ideas for the shooter

I think it's been done in years past but I'm not exactly sure. We should post gift ideas for shooters that are not really expensive. I'm thinking under $50 for the most part and definitely under $100. I'm sure everyone would love a new $2000 Nighthawk but thats not very realistic.

My first thought

Range bag - Midway Range bag The competition or compact competition have always gotten great reviews and are under $50 and really inexpensive for what you get. It's also generic enough to be useful to any shooter, we all need a range bag.

Mags are always a welcome gift, of course my gift givers know what kind of mags I use, so subtle hints may be required for some.

/ZING!
/Now back to your normal thread, and ammo is a great gift. Especially something your shooter wouldn't normally splurge on.

Reloading equipment.

This could be very specific to the individual. Does he need dies for a new caliber? More powder or primers or boolits? Maybe he's new to reloading and needs a book on it?
