To make picking a Father’s Day gift that bit easier, we’ve created a handy list for you to choose from that is guaranteed to help those stuck for what to get or searching for last-minute presents.
An easy essential to start with is a jacket. If you love the outdoors, then you'll know that your outerwear will quickly determine how enjoyable the event or activity is.
You can buy a great quality jacket for airsoft that will also work well in paintballing, mountain biking, and other extreme outdoor sports! Surplus Store’s jackets have been chosen with airsoft and workwear in mind; they'll provide comfort and practicality.
Our range includes brands such as Viper, Highlander, Tuff Stuff and Jack Pyke, as well as many more we're sure will spike your interest, so why not take a look?
If your dad’s into airsoft, then what's to say he won't be curious about archery too? It's an age-old sport with a fascinating history! It requires skill, strength and precision aiming.
That's not to say you need to buy your dad a longbow and some arrows; why not purchase a set of archery lessons, or just the one if you're not too sure?
If your dad's already into archery, you can purchase accessories such as a new quiver, bow case or backpack. Or you can take it up a notch and really treat them to a crossbow, which is a pretty impressive piece of kit, or maybe even a blowgun?
If your dad’s into airsoft, he's probably into the outdoors too. If it's something he does alone, or you both like to enjoy together, then you can consider getting an outdoor kit or something to aid your adventures?
For example, you could put together a small care package like a Saxon holdall with a sewing kit, dry bag, survival kit, and stove inside, ready for their next adventure. These are simple gift ideas that are thoughtful and practical.
If your dad spends a lot of time outside, you can guarantee that these gifts will be needed at one point or another.
Why don’t you combine two things they love, a bb gun and a film, show or time period they love? You can find loads of realistic bb guns that they can enjoy in target practice, skirmishes and garden battles.
If your dad has a favourite film, then why not purchase an airsoft gun replica? You can buy them a replica bb from their favourite historical period or film!
Popular choices include:
To purchase a Realistic Imitation Firearm, you will need to obtain a valid defence that complies with the VCRA. So this might not be possible for those who aren’t airsofters. However, that’s not to say you can’t purchase your dad a gift card so they themselves can purchase a replica gun of their choosing.
Although it might sound like a fairly simple idea, it's an incredibly useful one! Naturally, you'll need to have an idea of what brand and weight BBs your dad prefers to use, you can then contact a member of our team and we will help to determine which BB's you will need!
You can consider personal additions such as personalised embroidered badges, capsule holders, and a chest rig for small gift ideas.
If you're unsure what to get your dad, why not consider a metal shooting target? You can find them in various shapes; some are designed to vaguely represent the shape of a person, others are your classic circular target or various small game shapes, like birds and rats.
What better way to celebrate father's day than chilling out in the garden with your favourite bb gun and practising your aim? Although, if you have easily startled or worried neighbours, they may not enjoy it as much.
An airsoft gun case is one that a lot of airsofters want, but not many can justify buying one. Why not treat your dad to a case that he wants but won't pay for himself?
There are mainly two types of gun cases to choose from:
Before deciding which type of case to choose, consider what your dad will need the case for and what type of gun will be placed in it.
Soft rifle cases are easier to carry, lightweight and will provide sufficient protection. Hard rifle cases are waterproof, impact and crush resistant.
Some cases are incredibly cheap to purchase; these are best left alone as they can be quite flimsy. It's best to look at Pelicase Boxes; they can be expensive depending on your budget, but their quality cases will give you a good reference for what to look for.
If your Dad plays indoor or night games a tracer unit can really up the fun factor of their games!
Tracer kits are definitely up there for airsofters. A tracer is a glowing bullet that you can see in the dark. For this impressive gift, you'll need to purchase a tracer unit and special tracer BBs.
It's important to be aware that a tracer unit might not be compatible with an old-style weapon that doesn't accommodate a silencer. It's rare but worth noting.
