Winkler Knives II Field Knife Maple

The Field Knife is a great knife for any avid hunter, camper or gunfighter. Winkler’s steel is guaranteed to maintain it’s edge and be reliable knife for years to come. While this knife comes in at $374, it’s well worth the money and definitely one of our top picks.
2. DJI Spark Drone
You may be wondering why we are including a drone on this gift guide. The bottom line is chances are no guy out there would ever turn down a drone. The DJI Spark is a small, affordable and reliable drone that you can use for anything from photography to scouting hunting locations. The drone weighs in at just 1.45 pounds so it can easily be stored in a backpack or vehicle. At $299 this is one of the most affordable drones on the market that will still offer high quality imagery and performance.
If you’re looking for something for that guy who loves guns consider the SureFire x300. Chances are that the guy who has a gun will want a light for it… trust us. The SureFire X300 is one of the most powerful lights in the industry and is issued to just about every US Special Operations Unit. The light has 600 lumens which is enough for them to use it as a self defense item or to simply light up the back yard when they are looking for your dog. At $214 this is a bit more affordable and is guaranteed to get your loved one to light up on Christmas Morning… Pun intended.
The SIRT Pistol is one of the best training aids we’ve ever used. The brainiacs over at SIRT pistol created a training aid that weighs the same as a pistol, molds as a pistol, contains the trigger pull of a traditional pistol and even ejects magazines like a pistol… the only thing it doesn’t do is shoot the actual bullets. Instead, SIRT pistols shoot a visible laser that marks your impact. This can be paired with the LASR app to give the shooter real time feedback on where their “shots” are actually impacting.
All in all this is one of the best training aids you can buy. While the $300 price tag may seem a little high keep in mind the amount of money your loved one will save on ammo and range fees. Plus, it’s a lot cheaper than just buying them a real gun.
5. WooBud Pocket Cannon
The WooBud pocket canon is a canon that sits on your desk and actually functions like a real canon. That’s right, this canon allows the user to stuff bbs (aka canon balls), with a propellent and then light a fuse that then shoots the canon ball out of the canon. Let me say that again…. This actually shoots canon balls the same way the old fashion ones do, just in the palm of your hand. There is literally not a guy on earth that wouldn’t want an actual working canon on their desk. Prove me wrong… I’ll wait. The best part of it is that it comes in at just $40 so it won’t break the bank.
When Garmin decided to make their Fenix 5 they chose to leave out literally nothing. This watch is one of the best GPS watches on the market and a perfect gift for any guy. The watch comes with a one touch GPS that accurately displays your current position along with a multitude of other functions to include an interactive map, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, heart monitor, step counter and more. The watch also has a third party app down load which allows the user to add on a number of other apps to help record their activities. These apps cover everything from jumping out of an airplane to going golfing. While all of these things are great, one of the best features of this wrist computer is it’s durability and ability to withstand the elements. In fact the watch can go down to depths of 300′ which is probably a lot deeper than anyone would want to take it. All in all this thing is an absolute beast.
