Why Outdoor Activities are Becoming More Popular

The comforting sounds of nature, the refreshing wind against your face, and limitless journeys to go on—spending time outside is an experience like no other. Outdoor hobbies and activities are becoming more and more popular. The growing interest started before 2020 and has become more widespread the further we get into the pandemic. Being outside gives us a chance to get a break from the hectic 24-hour news cycle, and more importantly, it gives us a chance to spend time with our friends and family. As an outdoor gear online store, here are American Trailhead’s favorite outdoor activities.

On Target: Gifts for New and Seasoned Gun Owners

The holiday season is now in full swing, and there’s some time left on the calendar to get a great gift for your friend or loved one. For some people, finding the right present can be difficult. Well, there’s no need to stress over what to buy the gun enthusiast in your life. No matter whether they’re young or an experienced firearms owner, there’s always something they could use. Below is our guide of practical and clever holiday gift ideas for gun owners.

Staying Secure with a Personal Safe

Carrying for personal protection is essential when going out in public. However, certain buildings and crowded venues may have a strict no-gun policy. With few other options, this situation forces many to leave their guns in their vehicle. The FBI estimates more than 700,000 incidents of motor vehicle theft occur each year. Are you comfortable leaving a gun unattended in the glovebox of your vehicle, susceptible to theft? You never know when a business may have a “No Guns Allowed” sign, making you store it away unexpectedly. For this reason, vehicle gun safes are a great investment that could prevent your weapon from being stolen.
