Christmas is a rough time of year for us guys, as we’re often beset upon all sides by a vast array of gifts for our wife, and no surefire way to ensure that we get the right gift for her. Well, as a battlehardened veteran of many a Christmas gone awry, let me offer you a little advice for the girl gunnut in your household, if you are so blessed.
Galco USA, a maker of holsters, belts, and other gun carrying items, is kind enough on their website to have a section labeled “Women’s Top Picks“. In this section you’ll find everything from holsters to handbags – some of which I have been assured are “cute“.
Maybe your lady friend doesn’t need a holster, maybe what she needs is a way to help badguys make informed decisions. If you think that a targeting aide is a good idea, check out Crimson Trace’s newest line of neon Pink laser grips. One of those would look great on an S&W snubbie, and you could probably find a matching…uh….item from Victoria’s Secret to go with it.
Maybe she’s already got a gun, but doesn’t like whatever color/finish it came in. No problem, give the guys at Lauer Custom Weaponry a call. They can turn your boring old 1911 into a brilliantly colored “Bronx Rose” pistol. It’s a double win – not only do you jazz up your gun, but you get to irritate Mayor Bloomberg as well!
Maybe you’re still out of ideas after all of that, or worse yet, your wife/girlfriend isn’t a gun nut. No worries, we have solutions for that. For example, take her shooting. But don’t just take her the range and burn up some ammo, make a date out of it. You take her to the range, and then spring a nice dinner on her at McCormick & Schmick’s, or Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. If she’s not into steakhouses or fish joints, take her shopping afterwards. But you have to commit, no taking her the range and then checking out mentally and acting like you don’t give a crap about the shopping – it’s a give and take world.
And for my three or four girl readers, I will put a post on Monday on what to get the boy gunny in your life – from blasters to camo!
