If Benson Payne had a Christmas Wishlist, this would be it. Don't forget to ask Santa for all the stuff that will make your adventures more fulfilling in the new year!
Combat Flip Flop shoes
I was fortunate enough to be staying at Griff’s when Andy came back from Columbia with a fistful of the new Unarmed Forces shoes they are dropping. In short, they have a ton of different styles and colors that are all super rad. They even have a set of unstructured shoes you could roll up and pack into a suitcase. Personally, the Tangent is our favorite.
Recon Rings Ring
The whole SOFLETE team is wearing a Recon Rings. If you are like us and break everything and also forget to take off jewelry, these are a finger saver. You can lift/shoot/whatever in them and they won’t de-glove your finger in an accident. They also won’t retain/lose heat if it’s cold or hot outside. Get your wife the couples collection and it’ll be like matching pajamas without castrating yourself.
I’m a big fan of their Pro Guide BX4 10x42. They are crystal clear and compact enough that you forget you are lugging them around. After putting in long miles in the mountains of Montana, weight was at a premium and these were my go-to this year. They come with a bino harness/strap but what you really want is the Go Afield Binocular Harness. https://www.leupold.com/gear-and-accessories/gear/go-afield-binocular-harness-xf-shadow-gray-tan
Snake Farm Boomstick
We can't lie, we all grew up doing hood rat stuff with our friends, and skating was a big part of that. Snake Farm isn't just run by good friends, their boards are made in America with dope logos. Made from Maple for just the right mix of pop and flex.
NORDIC 9mm Pistol Cal Carbine
Nordic makes AMAZING guns that happen to be very affordable. To date, I haven’t seen one of their rifles that wasn’t shooting MOA accuracy with factory loads. Their Pistol Caliber Carbines are super innovative, with an interchangeable mag well, and a proven track record of reliability. I would argue this is the perfect gun to have next to the bed. My personal taste would be slapping on a Leupold LCO and loading it up with Freedom Munitions 124gr. XTP.
Timney Trigger’s AR Calvin Elite
Doug’s personal favorite trigger, the Calvin Elite breaks crisp and takes all of your excuses away for those minute-of-pie-plate groups you shoot. This thing is criminally good.
R Riveter is a company making women’s accessories in the US- and they are employing military spouses to do it. Check out their high quality purses if you're once again lost as to how to express your devotion to the HH6.
