Some neat shooting inspired gifts from Lucky Shot


.308 Bullet Necklace


The necklace is a nice little gift for the shooting lady in your life, or yourself if you are the necklace wearing type.  I was most impressed with the .50 Cal bottle opener. It works great and is a nice conversation piece when hanging out and having a few beers with friends.  The construction is solid and it looks like it will hold up well. I've dropped the thing more than once without putting a dent or scratch in it. Watch your toes!



I also have a .308 bottle opener keychain for popping caps on the go!

If you're looking for some nifty gifts for a shooter these would make a nice treat. Check out Lucky Shot.

All of the above items were provided for review by Don at Lucky Shot. Tell them I sent you.

Busy busy.

I barely have time to do the things I have to do, let alone those I want to do.  About the only thing I have time for lately is reading.  Tonight I'm going to shoot an IDPA match, the first in almost a year. I need to get to the range regularly again so that I can brush up my own skills and get ready to teach some NRA Basic Pistol courses this year.

And maybe, just maybe, I will have some interesting things to blog about.  This space has been pretty dead. I may start doing some short cigar reviews for those of you interested in that sort of thing.
