It’s February, you know what that means? Valentine’s Day. That special day out of the year we plan grand gestures for our loved ones to show them how much we appreciate them. Your significant other has probably come to mind and maybe your son or daughter. But what about your gun? Don’t you love it too?
Valentine’s Day is the time of year people buy gifts and plan special days for their loved ones. So, what are you going to get your gun this year? It has always been there to support you and keep you safe, it’s only fair that you treat it to something nice on this special day.
We’ve compiled a list of items we know your gun would love for Valentine’s Day this year. And sticking with the theme of Valentine’s Day, they are all red. So, check them out and maybe order something special for that gun you love so much.
1. Red Dot Sight
Starting out with our first red item, a red dot sight. Red dot sights or red dot optics are typically mounted to the top of your pistol or rifle. They use a series of mirrors and a red diode to allow the user to see a red dot on the target when they look through the sights.
Research has shown that red dot optics can help improve accuracy in beginner and intermediate shooters. Rather than looking through iron sights, it’s easier to place the red dot on your target and shoot.
If you want to read more about red dot sights before deciding if that is the right gift for your gun this Valentine’s Day you can check out our article about them here. If you’ve already decided a red dot optic is the perfect gift for your gun you can check out a few of our favorite optics below.
2. Red Laser
Continuing with our theme of all things red we are moving on to red lasers. Red lasers can help with aim and accuracy. Typically, they are mounted to the rail on the bottom of a pistol or are integrated into the frame of your gun.
Some people have found that using a laser can increase their initial accuracy and follow up shot accuracy. In a stressful situation, the laser can help you quickly aim at your target. Depending on the laser some feature instinctive technology making them exceedingly easy to use.

3. Red Vedder Holster
What’s a better gift for your gun than a nice new custom made holster? We offer both full Kydex and hybrid holsters for hundreds of gun models. Each one is made to order for you and your gun model.
If you aren’t sure what kind of holster would be best for your gun we recommend starting with our LightTuck™. It is our most popular holster for many reasons, but customers love that it is comfortable, lightweight, and easily concealable. You can read more about it in our blog here.

4. Hyve Magazine Base Plate
Hyve Technologies makes an array of accessories for gun manufacturers like Glock and Smith & Wesson. But we are highlighting their interchangeable magazine base plates that happen to come in red.
In addition to the base plates, the company sells trigger systems, colored slides, and other fun additions you can put on your gun. You can check out all of the Hyve products on their website, including their red magazine base plates.
5. Red Targets
Last on our list and of course, sticking with our red theme is red targets. There’s no better way to spend Valentine’s Day with your gun than at the range and why not do it with some red targets.
Targets are great to have whether you are planning to go to the range soon or not. You can easily run out of them and if you buy them at the range they can be quite expensive in comparison to the Amazon pricing.
If you are looking for suggestions on what red target would be best you can check this one out on Amazon here. Or if you want targets in general and aren’t concerned about what color they are we suggest splatterburst targets which you can find here.
We decided to mention a bonus item. While this item isn’t really a gift for your gun but rather a gift for you it still goes along with our red theme. We have a collection of Vedder Nation t-shirts, one of those is in honor of remembering everyone who is deployed. You can check out this shirt and our other Vedder Nation shirts here.
Overall, it’s important to remember to treat yourself and your gun in addition to your loved ones on Valentine’s Day. All of these gifts are great options as a small way to give yourself a Valentine’s Day gift this year.
If you are looking for belts or holsters we recommend visiting our Vedder Holsters website for all of our belt and holster options and for more information to help you choose the carry system that works best for you.
