Whether you’re purchasing your first firearm or are an avid gun enthusiast, there are many products and accessories that you should have. The key is evaluating your needs and making sure that the gun accessories that you purchase fit with your lifestyle. We’re here to give you a guide to the six items we think every responsible gun owner should have.

  1. Ear Protection

Ear protection is vital while operating a firearm. Make sure you pick up a good pair of headphones or ear plugs to help prevent hearing loss from occurring. We encourage you to do research about what will best meet your needs before the next time you hit the range or go for a hunt.

  1. Storage Case

A high-quality storage case should be on your list of must-have firearm accessories. It’s a way to protect your investment! They make cases with customizable foam which allows for a perfect fit for your gun. You can even find cases that are waterproof. Finding a case that fits your needs is essential and can prolong the life of your gun.

  1. Gun Safe

Having a gun safe keeps safety as a top priority. Having a safe in your residence lets you control who can have access to your guns and helps mitigate accidents or theft. You can purchase safes in an array of sizes.

  1. Cleaning Kit

It’s important to regularly clean your firearm. This goes for all firearms whether you own a shotgun, rifle, or handgun. Maintaining your gun ensures that they are in good working order and it also promotes a long life for the firearm.

  1. Eye Protection

A solid pair of range glasses adds the protection your vision needs. They keep your eyes safe in case of a ricochet or gun malfunction. Try some on and find the perfect pair for you before the next time you hunt or shoot, especially any upland hunting you might do this upcoming fall.
