To get you started, we’ve put together a 2018 Christmas gift guide, featuring brands like Barbour, Le Chameau, Sophie Allport and many, many more. Whether you’re looking for a sleek shooting gift or a present for your pooch, we’re here to make your Christmas shopping easier.
Gifts for hunters
Need something for the hunter in your life? If you know someone that prefers stalking pheasants to sitting by the fire, these shooting essentials will help make their Christmas special.
The luxurious Croots Helmsley Cartridge Bag is the ideal gift for serious shooters. With a capacity of 100 cartridges and a hinged speed-load design, this bag is designed to help shooters move quickly and efficiently when they need to reload. The bag is finished in traditional tweed, with a full-suede lining and an adjustable leather strap for added comfort.
With 20 leather-closed cartridge loops, the Beretta Retriever Belt is great for anyone looking to move quickly on their hunt. Designed in hard-wearing Cordura with a snap-lock fastening, the Retriever Belt is built to handle the wear and tear of regular hunting. A handy zip-up pouch sits at the front to store your essentials, and the padded design offers lumbar support on those long shoots.
A cartridge belt is a must-have piece of kit for any serious shooter. If you know a hunting hobbyist without one in their arsenal, or you’d like to treat someone to a brand new belt, the Beretta Retriever will make an ideal gift.
