What Gift Can You Give to Your Hunting Enthusiast Arab Friend?

posted on: Feb 22, 2021

If you have an Arab friend who is a hunting enthusiast, it may be hard to know what to get them as a gift, especially if you are not a hunter yourself or specifically not an Arab. The possibilities are endless, and it may be hard to know what is the right gift for them. You may be afraid of getting them something they already have, not getting the right brand, not getting something according to their culture or getting something that doesn’t work very well.

Gift Ideas for Hunting Enthusiast Friend

If you know their sizes you can always get a piece of rugged clothing, boots, or gloves. You can also look at little things that can make them more comfortable while they hunt, like wool socks, more comfortable ear protection, or other things. If you know what kind of ammunition they prefer, you can also get them some to help defray the costs of their next hunting trip.

A lot of those things, especially ammunition, are pretty expensive, and can get into the hundreds of dollars very quickly. If you are looking to spend less than $200, you may want to consider getting your Arab hunter friend a budget red dot sight.

A Budget Red Dot

A red dot is a special kind of sight that is designed to help someone aim quickly at short distances. Most guns come with basic sights mounted on top of them (these are called iron sights), and they work well enough, but to shoot accurately with them, you need to line up the rear sight and front sight perfectly with your eye, which takes some time and make them more difficult to use.

A red dot, on the other hand, uses just a single dot of light that is projected onto a piece of glass. This means that the shooter only needs to put the little red dot on their target and fire, so they can acquire their targets quickly and shoot accurately much faster than with iron sights.

Red dots have no magnification because they are designed with short distances in mind. With a quality red dot, hunters and shooters can hit targets as far out as 100 yards, which makes them great for hunting in wooded areas or any place where there are a lot of obstructions that would prevent shots being made at longer distances.

Red dots come in different varieties with different features, but the nice thing about them is that they all function similarly, and even if you buy one that your hunting friend doesn’t want to use for hunting, you’ve still given them a great excuse to go to the range and do some shooting to get the dot zeroed in, and they almost certainly have a gun they can put it on.

Some More Thoughts

If you’re looking for a cheap gift, you can stick with something simple like disposable ear plugs, a new rifle cleaning kit, or something like that. If you’re looking to spend a little bit more but not too much, a budget red dot sight could be the perfect solution.
