Ammunition Depot has put together a curated list of unique and thoughtful gifts that will bring a smile to the face of the gun enthusiast in your life this holiday season.

Rifle Magazines

It's often said that one can never have too many spare magazines, especially when planning range trips. Ammunition Depot offers a convenient solution with a wide selection of popular AR-15 magazines.

Shopping for a Pistol Magazine? We've Got That Covered Too!

From compact models for concealed carry to extended magazines for more capacity, our online section of pistol mags includes popular brands like Glock, Amend 2, Magpul, Sig Sauer, and more!

These magazines can be purchased individually as great stocking stuffers or in bulk packs, making them an ideal gift to place under the Christmas tree.

You'll find top brands like Magpul, Sig Sauer, Amend 2, and Glock at competitive prices, ensuring that your gift is both practical and appreciated.

Range Bags and Molle Sling Bags

Another popular and essential gift for firearms aficionados is a quality gear bag. These bags make it easy to transport firearms and accessories to the range while providing organized storage for all their gear.

Range bags offer ample storage for multiple magazines, dedicated space for ammunition, a secure pistol retention system, and additional pockets for miscellaneous gear.

Another popular option is the RTAC Molle Sling Bag - designed for the active individual who demands both functionality and style, the compact and lightweight cross-body tactical sling bag is your ideal companion for outdoor activities, travel, or everyday urban adventures.

Every bag and pouch is designed for maximum convenience, so whether you're going to the indoor shooting range or on a week-long hunting trip, our extensive RTAC (Rattlesnake Tactical) range bags and Molle Pouches are a favorite choice.

Range Safety Gear

Safety is paramount on the firing range and often overlooked, but crucial pieces of equipment are eye protection and hearing protection.

High-quality eye protection, or hearing protection, is affordable and comes with options for different types of lenses suitable for indoor and outdoor shooting.

The Wiley-X shooting glasses, available at a great price point, offer versatility with clear and smoked lens versions to accommodate varying light conditions.

When it comes to hearing protection, the Walker Game Ear Razor hearing protection muffs stand out as a top choice.

Designed for long-term use, comfort, and effectiveness, Walker Game Ear provides noise-canceling capabilities that make conversation easy, even in noisy environments.

Optional Walker gel-filled earpads enhance comfort, making them an excellent choice for over-the-ear hearing protection.

Pistols and Rifles: Affordable Shooting Solutions

In today's rapidly changing and uncertain times, firearms enthusiasts are always looking for ways to maintain their shooting skills and have fun without depleting their ammunition stocks.

Training with .22LR alternatives is an excellent solution. Many manufacturers offer .22LR pistols that replicate their full-caliber counterparts, providing a cost-effective way to practice.

Some favorites include the Glock 44, GSG 1911, S&W M&P22, and the Walther P22.  Better yet, the SIG P322 TAC PAC has almost everything you need for a fun range outing with a .22LR pistol, including extra magazines and a holster!

Shopping for a rifle? Ammunition Depot offers a wide array of .22LR options for a fun day at the range and an economical way to refine shooting fundamentals.

Classics like the Ruger 10/22 remain popular and offer endless customization possibilities. Other choices, such as the Henry Survival Rifle, provide a compact, portable plinking option.

And for those who love the AR-15 platform, rifles like the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 offer the experience of shooting an AR-15 in .22LR.

Speaking of .22LR and the AR-15 platform, one doesn’t necessarily gift a whole AR-15 rifle!  .22LR conversion upper receivers, like the type made by Chiappa, allow someone who already owns an AR-15 to quickly swap the .22LR upper onto their existing AR-15 lower.

Available in an 11.8" and 7.8" QUAD Picatinny rail, the Chiappa upper receiver comes with everything you need to have a blast on the range with .22LR, including the magazines - Just add the .22LR ammo!

Stocking Stuffers for Firearms Lovers


For the firearms enthusiast in your life, consider adding a unique twist to their stocking stuffers with a selection of ammunition this holiday season.

9mm ammo, with its versatility and widespread use in handguns, is a practical choice that's sure to be appreciated.

For the rifle aficionado, 223/5.56 ammo is an excellent pick, offering the perfect blend of power and precision for various shooting activities.

Experience unmatched reliability with Federal Premium HST 9mm 147 Grain JHP, the trusted choice for personal defense. This ammo provides superior expansion and penetration, ensuring maximum effectiveness in critical situations.

Enhance your shooting experience with PMC X-TAC 5.56 NATO 62 Grain Green Tip LAP ammunition, designed for superior accuracy and performance. Ideal for tactical and defense applications, this ammo features a light armor-piercing green tip for enhanced penetration.

Widely known for its affordability and low recoil, 22LR ammo is a classic used by novice and experienced shooters for nearly all styles of shooting sports.

Lastly, a little something for the shotgun lovers/hunters: 12 Gauge shotgun ammo is a must-have, versatile for everything from hunting to home defense.

Federal Champion 22 LR 36 Grain CPHP offers reliable, high-performance ammunition for plinking and small game hunting. Copper-plated hollow point bullets ensure accuracy and consistent expansion, making it a top choice for 22 LR shooters.

Step up your game with RIO Star Team EVO 12 Gauge 1 oz 2.75" 7.5 Shot, expertly crafted for competitive shooting. Experience consistent patterns and reduced recoil, perfect for trap, skeet, and sporting clays.
