These items are worth the small investment to add enjoyment to your hunt and protect your gear.
You cannot put a price on safety. Anytime an activity involves shooting firearms there is a risk to your vision and your hearing. Flying debris and stray shot pellets can easily cause major injuries to your eyes. The loud report of a shotgun quickly erodes your hearing capabilities. There are wingshooting supply products available that won’t break the bank while still offering a serious amount of protection.
You can, however, put a price on your gear. Usually, it is a hefty one. With increasing firearms prices in a sagging economy and new designs coming out all the time, it is expensive to repair or replace an old favorite gun. The two biggest enemies of firearms, weather and neglect, can be held at bay with the right wingshooting supplies that provide protections.
Some of these items are interesting and some are fun but the items showcased in this slideshow are essential wingshooting supplies.
