Jerking the Trigger Gift Guide – Cheap Procrastinator Edition

I have been getting heavy pressure to come up with a gift guide which I have generally resisted because, well most of what I write could generally be used as a gift guide, especially the Bargain or Just Cheap? and The EDC Tool Roll series. The JTT inbox had two emails in it yesterday asking about affordable gift ideas. While I am generally the least imaginative gift giver ever, I am relenting.

The following gift ideas cost less than $40 (much less in most cases) and you should be able to have them to your door before Christmas if you act fast.

Mini Pliers

Even if a guy already has a hundred pairs of pliers, the sight of these handy little buggers hanging out of a stocking will kick off MacGyver fantasies in any man.

The Knipex Cobras would be my pick but Tekton and Channellock both have more affordable, USA made options: Mini Pliers Comparison

Mini Ratchets

The VIM Tools HBR5 and GearWrench Micro Driver are going to appeal to every gun guy and tool guy. These tiny ratchets have the ability to drive both sockets and driver bits.

The GearWrench Micro Driver is often available at Sears on sale this time of year: GearWrench Micro Driver

The VIM Tool HBR5 is probably one of the top picks in this guide. It’s cheap, well made, incredibly handy, and one of the most popular entries ever in The EDC Tool Roll series: VIM Tools HBR5

Snake Eater Tactical IWB Magazine Pouches

These things are awesome. They can be used IWB or OWB and will fit every handgun mag the recipient owns. They also happen to be very affordable at $12. Get you order in soon: SET IWB Mag Pouch

Screwpop Utility Knife

These utility knives are cheap but handy which makes them the perfect stocking stuffer. No one can resist a tool that cuts stuff and open bottles: Screwpop Utility Knife

Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition

This handy little screwdriver is right at home in an EDC tool kit or range bag. They are made in the USA by a company that doesn’t hate your guns… in fact, they make tools specifically for them: Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition

Kershaw E-Train

If you know someone who is into training for self defense, why not get them a training knife like the Kershaw Emerson E-Train. Its affordable, well made, and it’s the kind of thing every gun/knife guy should have: Kershaw Emerson E-Train

ESEE Avispa and Zancudo

The ESEE Avispa and Zancudo are incredible knives for the money. They both carry easily, cut aggressively, and are backed with the ESEE warranty. That is hard to beat for the price: ESEE Avispa and Zancudo

ESEE Avispa D2

Whiskey Two Four (WTF) just rolled out the first of several new Practical Integrated Modular Platform, Scalable (PIMPS) components (See? That title wasn’t click-bait). PIMPS is a layered system of modular accessories built with WTF’s laser cutting precision.

The base component is a compact chest rig with a loop material face and wide, MOLLE compatible shoulder straps. The end user can then add accessory panels to build the system up from compact chest rig, all the way to serious load bearing gear.

WTF already offers a user configurable, MOLLE compatible panel and the M4 Carry All Accessory Panel. Other manufacturer’s panels with the industry standard attachment setup may also work with PIMPS.

WTF also offers the PIMPS Saddle Bags for when you really need to expand the carrying capacity of your chest rig. These general purpose pouches attach over the PIMPS chest rig in such a way that accessory panels may still be attached.

You can expect several new items to be added to the PIMPS line up in the coming weeks. Check out PIMPS at WTFIdea.com.


New Double M4 Mag/Carry All Pouch from Whiskey Two Four

Whiskey Two Four’s new Double M4 Mag/Carry All Pouch is a classic, double M4 magazine pouch rendered in modern materials. It is constructed from laser cut ACRONYM material – Whiskey Two Four’s own proprietary laminate fabric. The result is a pouch that is lightweight and durable.

The pouch features full flap coverage with mil-spec Velcro closure. The Velcro fields are very tall so that the flap can accommodate objects of varying height. It also features an elastic tensioner to keep the pouch tight when it is carrying smaller items or a single magazine. The pouch is MOLLE compatible and comes with 2 WTFix straps.

Check out the new Double M4 Mag/Carry All Pouch at it’s introductory price at WTFIdea.com.

Beez Combat Systems Extreme Lightweight Plate Carrier

The new Extreme Lightweight Plate Carrier (ELP) is similar in appearance to Beez Combat Systems’ Extreme Concealable Plate Carrier but it differs in some key ways. The ELP plate pockets are constructed from stretchable tweave material and designed around thinner plates (1/2 – 3/4″ thick). The form fitting plate pockets, flat shoulder straps, and elastic cummerbund make for a very concealable carrier.
