    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.

    Unfortunately Bricks of .22 are out of the price range of this thread.

    /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?

    A $2,000 Nighthawk might not be very realistic but they do offer gift certificates. They can apply that to whatever they want. Offset cost even a bit
