What do men want? It’s a mystery that has dogged womankind for eons, as we strive to decode the subtle steganography of the males in our lives in search of the perfect gift. Now, with Father’s Day looming on the horizon, we NRA Women are once again taking up the impossible task of delivering a gift that will satisfy Dad’s inscrutable wishes. Here are five terrific Father’s Day presents for the man who loves shooting, the outdoors … and us, of course.
Tetra AMP Series Enhance & Suppress Ear Protection
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the man in your life doesn’t seem to be listening to you? That’s because Dad might have some noise-induced hearing loss from not wearing his ear protection all the time, and that’s a real shame—clearly, if he could hear you ask him to take out the trash, he’d do it. The hearing experts at Tetra are here to help with their AMP Series Enhance & Suppress Ear Protection line, with earbuds that suppress loud noises even as they enhance subtle ones. All Dad needs to do is take Tetra's free online hearing test, then visit the Tetra Product Selector to find the ear pro that suits his pursuits. Get ready for a whole lot more “Yes, Dear” in your life!
Winchester Official Merchandise Pajamas
Although men and their desires have always been difficult to understand, careful observation has led us to deduce that Dad likes to lounge around in his pajamas on a Sunday morning. Why not make that even cozier for him with this comfy and attractive Winchester-branded pajama pants and matching T-shirt? Dad will be tickled pink to see these cozy cotton flannels and fitted pink tees on his special day … so much so, that he may insist that you model them while he finishes unwrapping his gifts so he can get a better idea of how great they look.

Smith & Wesson M&P Duty Series Backpack
For this Father’s Day gift idea, we hearkened back to the last thousand outings we had with the men in our lives and remembered the one phrase we’ve heard over and over: “Can you put this in your purse for me?” This empirical observation has led us to the conclusion that men really ought to carry purses, but other observations indicate that they don’t seem to want to. We theorize that constructing a bag with straps that go over both shoulders (instead of just one) will make all the difference, and that’s why this year Dad is getting a Smith & Wesson M&P Duty Series Backpack. He’ll love the sturdy design and masculine looks; you’ll love not having to carry everything he can’t fit in his pockets. Go to smith-wesson.com for more.
Magpump Magazine Loader
Men love to shoot handguns, but what they don’t love is breaking a nail while they’re loading their magazines up. What Dad hasn’t ever accidentally ruined his fresh manicure while preparing for a long day at the range? Keep his cuticles cute as ever by gifting him a Magpump magazine loader – one of the easiest ways to load mags ever devised. Just dump the loose cartridges into the Magpump’s hopper, seat the magazine, and activate the lever and Dad can load Glock, S&W, CZ, Ruger, SIG and Springfield magazines all day long … he can even load them for you! Visit magpump.com for more.
Imalent 100,000-Lumen Flashlight
“Honey, have you seen my keys?” Men are wonderful, but since Mother Nature didn’t see fit to equip them with the Magic Item-Locating Organ with which all women are born, they frequently have to turn to us to help them locate their personal items. This Father’s Day, help Dad compensate for that tragic lack of Feminine ESP with the world’s brightest flashlight, the Imalent 100,000-Lumen Flashlight. With a range of up to 1,350 meters, Dad can light up the couch cushions, the back of the closet and the planet Neptune in search of his cell phone before he goes and asks you where it is anyway. Go to imalentlight.com for more.
Naturally, our favorite thing about NRA Dads is that they don’t mind having a chuckle … even if it’s at their own expense! If you didn’t see the perfect present for Dad in this not-so-serious article, you’ll find some more great gift ideas here.
