Ladies, I guarantee your man will love you forever if you get him one of these. They are a bit on the pricey side, though. Tactical walls has revolutionized they way people look at hiding and storing a personal protection firearm. Their tactical shelves look like a normal piece of furniture. The shelf is opened with a magnetic key. Once unlocked, the bottom hinges being down will reveal a compartment to store firearms and extra magazines.

Having a few of these throughout the house will keep a gun handy and secure should the need arise.

If you're like me, then you love the sound of ringing steel. One of the best decisions I made for my backyard range was including different size steel gongs at various distances. Steel targets come in multiple shapes and sizes and are a ton of fun to shoot at.
