Hunting for a Valentine’s Day gift that will earn you MVP status?
Search no further. Here are eight gifts for the tactical woman in your life, covering a range of ideas and something for every budget.
Weatherby’s Vanguard Camilla rifle is a standout for this Valentine’s Day and the best on the market for the hunting woman.
This rifle is very carefully designed specifically for women. In fact, it is a rifle for women, designed by women. Weatherby undertook a lengthy process working closely with a select team of female hunters and shooters to continually refine the rifle until it reached a truly exceptional standard.
The Vanguard Camilla delivers extremely high performance with guaranteed SUB-MOA accuracy in an ultra comfortable fit for women. Every detail has been considered and set this rifle apart.
Weatherby has shortened the length of pull to 13 inches and shifted the grip angle and made it slimmer. They’ve also added a slight trigger finger guide groove to enhance the grip, and made the comb higher to properly align a female shooter’s eye with optics.
The gorgeous design also makes it a beautiful gift with wow factor. The Camilla features satin finish, Turkish A-grade walnut with rosewood forend and grip caps well as a Fleur de lis checkering pattern and cold-hammer-forged 20-inch barrel.
Available for $849.00.
Handbags are always a popular gift. Why not take it next level with hidden tactical features?
