Leading the way in long-gun upgrades are the new Crimson Trace Tactical Lights. These innovations include the CWL-102 white LED light, which delivers up to 500 lumens and can be activated with a tap-on/tap-off tail cap or via a remote on/off activation pad attached to the light with a linking cable. That activation pad can be placed in position on the firearm with Velcro straps or a stick-in-place strip. Another similar light model, the CWL-202 provides up to 900 lumens of output. These lights are impact resistant and water resistant up to a depth of 1 meter. Models are available to fit standard rails or the M-Lok®/Keymod accessory slots.

Dad will have plenty of choices: Does he want a green or red Crimson Trace laser sight? Does he want that laser sight secured on a Picatinny rail, installed over the pistol’s trigger guard, or secured to the firearm as a replacement grip? Does he want his Crimson Trace laser sight pre-installed by the firearm manufacturer or does he want to install the laser sights himself? If dad owns a popular 1911 handgun, or a Smith & Wesson M&P® 45 Shield, there are numerous laser sight models for those popular handguns.

Crimson Trace products offer fathers and all firearm owners across America several advantages. By using Crimson Trace’s patented Instinctive Activation firearm laser activation technology, most models are instantly activated when the firearm is gripped. A laser sighting system on a firearm will also help dad or any owner easily determine any problems with firearm control or operation—and help with correcting those problems. Seeing a laser downrange also adds to the excitement of the shooting session. With laser sight prices beginning at $159, the price tags will fit the wallet of most dads—and gift buyers.
