Daniel Boone once said that “All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.” I’m not so sure how practical horses are anymore, but I think we can all agree that being properly armed is fundamental to being American. And on that note – it’s hard to believe, but the holiday season is right around the corner and the folks at Gunivore are here to make yours less stressful. We’ve scoured the web to find the new and exciting products any gun lover will love and appreciate. We’ll guide you through our favorite gifts this holiday season so you’ll be properly prepared whether you’re buying for a loved one, for an office party, or those tough secret Santas.
GunSkins AR-15 Mag Skin Camouflage Kit DIY Vinyl Magazine Wrap ($15.99)
We at Gunivore know that many shooters like to accessorize their guns. Besides for adding tactical or performance advantages, many aftermarket options simply allow users to personalize their firearm of choice. One of our favorite of these is the GunSkins AR-15 Magazine Skin DIY Kit. These affordable skins are not only completely waterproof and removable, they are also insanely easy to install and are 100% American-made.

Hoppe’s no. 9 Lubricating Gun Oil Field Wipes ($7.40 for pack of 50)
With great power comes great responsibility, which means that it’s every gun owner’s duty to maintain and upkeep their firearms.

Walker’s Silencer in The Ear Earbuds ($179.99)
We at Gunivore can safely say that not all hearing protectors are created equal. Although many folks are content with their run-of-the-mill earmuffs and earbuds, we believe that could all change after trying a premium product, like Walker’s Silencer in The Ear Earbuds. While this gift may be costly, the protection and convenience they offer are practically unparalleled. In addition to their integrated omnidirectional microphones, these earbuds are also outfitted with a dynamic range of speakers to provide the crystal clear necessary sounds. Furthermore, Walker relied on a sound-activated compression system to deliver their supreme hearing protection. Lastly, the Silencer in The Ear earbuds stand out among the competition thanks to their Secure Fit fitting system which offers ample comfort all day long.
