Best Gifts for Dad this Father's Day: Gun Guy Edition

Garmin Xero C1 Pro Chronograph

rs-fdgg-garmin-chronograph

If dad spends a lot of time at the range chronographing reloads, then the new Garmin Xero C1 Pro Chronograph is going to be a game-changer. The biggest advantage of the Garmin is that it doesn’t drop shots like other chronos on the market, and it is much more compact and easier to use at the range. Along with the expected velocity, extreme spreads, standard deviations readings you’d expect from a doppler chronograph, the Garmin also auto-calculates kinetic energy and power factor on tested ammunition. Rated for tracking velocities from 100 to 5,000 feet per second, the Xero C1 Pro is great for rifle, shotguns, handguns and even archery. MSRP $599
