Gun Lover Christmas Gift Guide

This is Palmetto State Armory's list of the Top Ten best Christmas gift ideas for the gun lover in your life.

These budget-friendly gift ideas are sure to put you in good graces with the shooter on your list.

#10. A PSA Gift Card

Dec 15, 2018 2:48:22 AM

No matter who is on your list, or what they may be trying to acquire for being good this year, a Palmetto State Armory Gift Card can help them get it. Ammo, Targets, Cleaning Products, reloading supplies, firearms, guns, more guns and some rifles are all made more readily available to the outdoor/firearms enthusiast in your life with a Palmetto State Armory Gift Card.


#9. Ammo

Nov 1, 2018 7:16:20 PM

Federal Ammunition has some amazing rebates happening throughout the Christmas season, and we have them available in our web store right now. If you know the chosen caliber of the one you love, head over and help them stock up right now


#8. Cleaning Supplies

You can never have too many cleaning supplies. Rods, patches, oils and solvents are all fantastic accessories to keep in high supply. There's also cleaning kits available that will help provide organization and storage while also providing the necessary tools to clean a variety of guns with only one kit. One for the bag, one for the workbench, an extra in the car just in case; keep the gun-lover in your life fully supplied by shopping our selection of cleaning supplies right now.


#7. PSA Eyes and Ears

Safety is paramount. We’ve all been caught in a situation where you get a last-minute invite to hit the range after work. We all know the dread that comes along with the thought of using the shared eye and ear protection at the public range. Why not have an extra set of eye and ear protection you can keep in your vehicle for that very moment? The Palmetto State Armory Eyes and Hearing Protection package is perfect for providing both safety protection and peace of mind that you’ll be comfortable and protected when that last-minute invite comes next time.


#6. Training

Nov 1, 2018 7:51:50 PM

We offer a variety of training courses through PSA Defense, and you can sign up someone you love to take one of our classes at PSADEFENSE.COM. However, if you’re not in South Carolina, and you want to help your favorite gun-toting hero get even better at toting his or her gun, look into training courses in your area and think about signing them up. Of course, training is a very personal undertaking, so maybe try to hint around about who your loved one would most want to train with, but at the end of the day, any excuse to get out and shoot while potentially learning something new is an excuse worth having. Here’s a quick list of great instructors that may be traveling close to where you are in 2019, and would definitely be worth consideration:

1.) Haley Strategic Partners

2.) Vickers Tactical

3.) Rob Pincus’ ICE Training

4.) TMACS INC

5.) Warrior Poet Society


#5. Reloading Supplies


Every shooter has thought at some point about reloading. With the right amount of time and patience, reloading can be a rewarding experience in both the money the shooter can save as well as the knowledge acquired by learning how to build your own bullets. We have a large variety of educational materials and supplies available in our online store that will help get any shooter up to par on reloading.


#4. The SIG Sauer Romeo 5

This optic packs a lot of value into its tiny little body including up to 50,000 hours of battery life (there’s 8,500 hours in a year, fyi). SIG achieves that level of performance through MOTAC technology, a design that powers the optic off after two minutes of being idle while simultaneously having the ability to power the optic back on as soon as any motion is sensed. The Romeo 5 is a 2 MOA Red Dot that offers ten separate illumination settings. It’s a real workhorse that you can grab for the discounted price of $119.99 through Christmas.


#3. Extra Parts

Palmetto State Armory offers a variety of ways to make sure the shooting enthusiast in your life is well-well-supplied with extra parts. You have three options: Parts Kit, Lower Build Kit or a Rifle Kit. A parts kit contains the fire control group, trigger-guard, pistol grip and screw, the safety, the bolt catch, forward assist, the take down pins and all necessary detents and springs. The Lower Build Kit comes with everything listed for the Lower Parts Kit but adds on a buffer tube, buffer, buffer spring, castle nut, rear latch plate and a buttstock. A rifle kit comes with all the parts necessary to turn a stripped lower receiver into a fully functioning rifle.


#2. The Palmetto State Armory KS47-G2

Dec 13, 2018 2:26:07 AM

We love the idea of putting an AK round through an AR15 rifle, and the PSA KS47-G2 is what we came up with to make it happen. Mag stops in the upper, a heavy buffer and an AR10 buffer spring are a few of the design modifications that instill confidence in both the quality and reliability of the KS47-G2. If you have an AK fan in your life who loves the 7.62 caliber but would like the modularity and lightweight design of the AR15, this is the rifle to get. Find more details about the KS47-G2 at PalmettoStateArmory.com


#1. The Palmetto State Armory AKV

Dec 13, 2018 1:02:21 AM

The belle of the Christmas ball is certainly the PSA AK-V. This pistol is made to resemble a classic AK rifle while chambering the 9MM round. This pistol’s moniker comes from its original design which was done for a now defunct group of Russian Spec Ops called Vityaz. The Vityaz design aims to create a small, compact 9MM that functions with CZ Scorpion Style magazines. It’s a fantastic choice for the shooter who wants afunctional yet eye-catching piece in his or her collection.
