NRA Pro Range Bag
Pack 20 handguns, enough ammo to feed a full-auto or just what you need for a day at the range in this extra-large bag. Built from heavy-duty water-resistant nylon with five exterior pockets, eight magazine holders, unique 3-in-1 gun rug that doubles as a removable handgun case and a removable tote, this is a seriously functional range bag. And of course, its purchase supports your NRA. MSRP: $89.95.

Quake Industries Stack-A-Rest
Weighing in at only 10 ounces, not only is this the lightest gun rest available to shooters but perhaps the most portable and versatile, too. Consisting of four stackable foam pieces, this rest is perfect for the bench but can also be utilized on windows, such as in a vehicle (where legal) or a shooting house. Whether using handgun, rifle or shotgun, you’ll find a configuration that works for you. MSRP: $40.

Otis Technology Ear Shield
Slimmer than earmuffs, these plugs keep your ears safe without getting in the way. Soft earbuds form a seal around the outer ear canal and connect to sound chambers within the frame. High-intensity sounds like gunfire funnel into these chambers, where they are dampened, while allowing voice level-noise to pass through. No batteries required. Two sound-reduction ratings available. MSRP: $19.99-$24.99.

DuraSeal Crazy Bounce Star Target
More fun than pop cans, and it’ll last a heck of a lot longer, too, this little star presents a new shot every time it’s hit. Green color is highly visible, and its star shape makes it come alive and bounce, tumble and roll with every shot. Made from a DuraSeal material, it will absorb hundreds of rounds from .177 pellets to .50-caliber handgun and rifle loads and still keep its shape. MSRP: $19.99.

Action Target Evil Roy Steel Reactive Target
Reactive steel finally has a portable option. Designed with folding legs and a collapsible steel plate, this target, though not light by any means, will fit into the trunk of a car and, with its carry handle, can be enjoyed wherever you choose to shoot. Made from centerfire rifle-rated 550 steel with multiple head shapes and sizes, so you can now enjoy the ping of success whenever you want with any firearm. MSRP: $184-$271.

Gamo Coyote PCP Air Rifle
Cheap to shoot and light on recoil, there may be no better training tool than an air rifle. The Coyote has a fixed air reservoir, 10-shot rotary magazine, optics rail, hammer-forged rifled barrel, self-regulated valve for consistent power and adjustable Custom Action Trigger. It also launches .22 caliber PBA Platinum pellets at up to 1100 fps, so this beechwood-stocked beauty is a small game-taking machine. Available in .177, .22 and .25 caliber. MSRP: $659-$679.

Block Black Crossbow Target
Crossbow or not, this nearly indestructible 20x20-inch target will stop bolts and arrows at speeds up to 400 fps like a brick wall. And due to its open-layered polyfusion technology, it will now release those arrows and bolts much easier than before, saving your strength for a few more shots. Four sides let you practice for long-range, short-range, precision and realistic scenarios. MSRP: $159.99.
