Peltor Sport Tactical 500

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

Peltor’s Tactical 500s offer a noise reduction rating of 26 and feature Clear Voice Tracking—in addition to Bluetooth and phone functions. Dynamic Suppression Time and Gunshot Recognition features combine to optimize hearing protection. Recessed mics cut down on wind noise, and the head band is vented to accommodate the button on the top of a ballcap. Power button is logically placed for a right-hander’s thumb, and the unit powers down automatically after about two hours. Our tester says they’ve been the best he’s tried in terms of both wind-noise suppression and voice intelligibility, as well as all-day comfort.

$100-$120 street price, www.peltor.com


Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

This handheld will use either one CR123A lithium battery or one AA alkaline battery—both of which are provided. You’ll get more power on high (350 lumens) with the lithium than with the alkaline (150), but the flexibility to run either power source makes this a handy and versatile light. Comes from the factory set in high/strobe/low mode, but thanks to the company’s TenTap programming, it’s simple to change it to either high-only or low/high modes. Available in black or coyote tan.

$71, www.streamlight.com



Meprolight FT Bullseye

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

This self-powered, low-profile sight combines a fiber-optic circle and tritium dot to create a sight that’s great for use in any lighting condition. Its design eliminates the need for a front sight. The Bullseye FT easily installs on dovetails for various pistols made by CZ, Glock, HK, SIG, S&W, Springfield and more, and it will accommodate most existing holsters. The nighttime illumination is guaranteed for 12 years. Available in red or green.


$170 (varies by model), www.meprolight.com

Ed Brown 1911 Magazines

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

A 1911 is only as good as the magazine that feeds it, and Ed Brown’s mags are top notch. They’re available in straight stainless or with a black nitride finish. Calibers include .38 Super (nine-round capacity), 9mm (nine), .45 ACP (seven and eight) and 10mm (nine).


$20–$30, www.EdBrown.com


DeSantis Slim-Tuk

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

This minimalist inside-the-waistband features hardware that can change the holster for right- or left-hand use. It’s made of Kydex, and the company’s 360 C-Clip—a meshing-gear type setup that allows the clip to be set at any position and secured with a Phillips-head screw. And for some guns, such as the Springfield Hellcat shown here, the top of the holster is cut in such a way that it will accept a slide-mounted red-dot sight. Fitments include a wide range of today’s popular guns.

$41, www.DeSantisHolster.com

Hoppe’s Lead-B-Gone Wipes

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide
