#4 American Brass: .50 Caliber Bullet Bottle Opener

Maybe you haven't actually fired a .50 caliber rifle unless you were in the military, but there's no reason you can't open your beer with one of these. 

This bottle opener is made and sourced in the USA from once-fired military brass casings. We have the casings CNC machined to get a perfect grip on any standard beer or soda bottle cap, then we reload them with M33 ball projectiles before tumbling them back to a like-new shine. 

Choose the optional custom engraving to make these bottle openers the perfect gift — you can add up to three lines of text to personalize them for anyone. 

At 5.5 long, 0.8 in diameter, and 4oz in weight, this hefty bottle opener will last you for years to come.

#5 Silver Bullet .50 Caliber Bottle Opener with Custom Engraving

This bottle opener is made from a spent 50BMG brass casing and an M33 projectile, but instead of leaving it in its au naturale brass and copper finish we've had them coated with a brilliant nickel-plated finish that is resistant to scratching and tarnishing. 

With free US shipping and custom engraving included in the price, you can personalize this gift for any person and any occasion.

#6 Matte Black .50 Caliber Bottle Opener

With this gift option we've taken our classic brass .50 Caliber Bottle Openers and added a sleek and durable matte black powder-coated finish to them. 

Like our other products, it's made in American from a spent 50BMG casing and an M33 ball projectile, with a notch machined into it which will crack open any bottle in a snap. 

If you want to make it an even better gift, go with custom engraving and you can add up to 3 lines of personalized text.

#7 .50 Caliber and 7.62mm Bottle Opener Combo Pack

Don't just settle for one bullet bottle opener — get this combo pack and you'll have one for home and one to keep with you at all times on your keyring. 

Compared to its big brother, the smaller 7.62mm Keychain Bottle Opener is much more portable. At about the size of your little finger and just over an ounce in weight you'll barely notice it alongside your keys, but it'll be there whenever you need to open a beer while you're away from home. 

They are 100% made in America from reloaded bullets and spent brass, and if you opt for custom engraving you can have both bottle openers personalized with a name, initials, or special message to make them memorable gifts that will be used for years.

#8 Six Shooter Pint Glass

Maybe the Colt Revolver doesn't have much utility when it comes to hunting, but you can't deny its iconic status among American firearms. So we think any hunter would love to add our Six Shooter Pint Glass to their lineup of drinkware. 

This massive pint glass is made to resemble the cylinder of the legendary Colt — machined from a solid block of aluminum and featuring an anodized finish, it holds a full 16oz of liquid while weighing in at nearly a pound and a half.

#10 Venison: The Slay to Gourmet Field to Kitchen Cookbook

Wipfli describes and illustrates the breakdown of a deer, focusing on the fronts, middles, and rears before proceeding to more specific cuts like sirloins, shanks, ribs, loins, roasts, sausage scraps, and more. Whether the reader has been hunting for two years or for thirty, there's a good chance they've never approached processing by muscle groups. Venison demystifies them and in the process shows the value of individual cuts and how to maximize one's quarry. 

More than 50 recipes for venison and accompanying accoutrements and sides are beautifully photographed and presented. The result is a venison book like no other, sure to appeal to those new hunters as well as veteran outdoors people.

#11 FoodSaver V4840 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealer Machine

Everyone will recommend actual hunting gear for hunters. But as a food safety advocate, I am thinking about more than just the game – eating the game. Let’s face it, whether you hunt deer, elk, hogs, or other wild animals, storing meat is a crucial part of the process. To ensure you are storing meat properly, keep in mind that unfrozen meat in the refrigerator should be used within 2 to 3 days. 

When freezing meat, space out packages to allow proper air circulation for cooling. After 24 hours, when the meat is solidly frozen you can stack them together in the freezer. Most frozen meat, when properly wrapped, can last for 9 to 12 months. But wrapping it properly is the key. This is why a good food vacuum sealer is a great buy for any hunter!
