No need to purchase my first AR-15
After like 8 months of research and deciding on a Colt LE6920 as the best rifle for me as my first AR I decided to wait to buy it after my wedding Jan 11 2013. I found out this morning that my groomsmen have pitched in and are buying it for me as my wedding present. I don't come from a ton of money or have a 6 figure job and I am paying for a relatively extravagant wedding at a local County Club on my own so money has been tight. My friends have seen my struggle and understand my passion for the gun and said this was what they wanted to do for me. Besides being very grateful I realize I need to do something in return to show my gratitude. That's where you guys come in! What do you guys (and girls) think would be a good groomsmen gift for 4 guys that are getting me my dream firearm?

Any suggestions will help. I'm kinda at a loss for ideas and know I need to do something cool for them.

Thanks for your help in advance and btw I'm 24 and my groomsmen are between 23 and 30

That is awesome.

As far as gifts for the awesome groomsmen it's really hard to say without knowing them or what their fancy or taste is. I know a lot of my friends really appreciate a good bottle of scotch or whiskey but we are in the 50 year old range.

+1 on the range trip

You know with that budget you might be able to swing a tactical training course for all of you. Some of them are all inclusive trips that take a few days to complete. I have no idea where you are so I can't say whats close but they are everywhere.

Whatever you do I'm sure those guys are going to want some trigger time with your new colt. So do that regardless.
