Mother’s Day, just like Father’s Day, has its own batch of stereotypical gifts that moms across the country find themselves receiving from family, friends and loved ones. Candy, flowers and perfume? Bo-ring. This year, why not forego the predictable and surprise the gun-totin’, range-lovin’ mom in your life with one of the following useful and unique gifts?

Walther Arms: PDP-F

No gift list is complete with at least one gun option for Mom! The way we can promise that she doesn't have this one is that it's brand-spanking-new. The Walther PDP-F features a unique grip that was engineered from thousands of points of biomechanical data to uniquely fit a woman’s hands. Featuring one of the best out-of-the-box triggers on the market, this 9mm handgun has all of the performance features of the “regular” PDP, but with a new patented operating system resulting in a reduction in slide rack force, which makes it easier to work the slide.  The only thing left is to choose a few boxes of ammo and Mom is ready to hit the range!

One of our favorites this season is the Delta model of polarized sunglasses. Perfect for when Mom hits the range for some target practice or wants to look stylish while out running errands, these glasses are sure to please. Featuring a frame that complements all face shapes, these lenses are available in over a dozen colorations, with the vermilion polarized mirrored lenses amongst the top choices this time of year.

gold foil embellished soft rifle case

Girls With Guns: Gold Foil Rifle Case

You might think a rifle case is the equivalent of giving Mom a vacuum cleaner, but we can pretty much guarantee that mom doesn't have a gun case like this one! The Gold Foil Rifle Case from Girls With Guns brings the perfect amount of feminine touch to your range gear without going over the top. It accommodates rifles up to 46 inches long with plenty of room—including for scoped rifles, which can oftentimes be a problem to fit properly. Additionally, there's a handy zippered pocket on the outside of the case perfect for spare earplugs, targets or even a box or two of ammo. (gwgclothing.com)

Bullet Bouquets: Happy Mother’s Day Bullet Flower Bouquet

So initially we promised unique gift ideas that departed from those that have proven predictable over the years. Well, rules were made to be broken and once you take a closer look at this gift option you'll see why. These "flowers" from Bullet Bouquets will last a lifetime, unlike the bouquet Mom may be used to getting!
