Peltor Sport Tactical 500

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

Peltor’s Tactical 500s offer a noise reduction rating of 26 and feature Clear Voice Tracking—in addition to Bluetooth and phone functions. Dynamic Suppression Time and Gunshot Recognition features combine to optimize hearing protection. Recessed mics cut down on wind noise, and the head band is vented to accommodate the button on the top of a ballcap. Power button is logically placed for a right-hander’s thumb, and the unit powers down automatically after about two hours. Our tester says they’ve been the best he’s tried in terms of both wind-noise suppression and voice intelligibility, as well as all-day comfort.

$100-$120 street price, www.peltor.com

Blackpoint Tactical Holster

2020 Father's Day Gift Guide

“Ordered a standard light holster for my Glock 19 and Inforce APL light. Fit and finish on the holster is superb. Gun and light click into place smoothly and securely. Easy to draw as well, no binding or hesitation.”

“Wear mine under a flannel open button-up shirt, no printing. Overall, one of the best holsters I’ve owned!”

“I can honestly say the Blackpoint belt loops are the best in the industry. The metal loops pull the gun in closer for more concealment.”

“The 1 3/4 loops are tight on the 5.11 belt and don’t allow any movement — you don’t have to keep readjusting your Roscoe and give your concealment away to others.”

With nothing but five-star reviews, the IWB and OWB Blackpoint Tactical Holster customers say it all, with customizable comfort and flexibility, making it a sure-fire gift win.
