    Title says it all. An old friend is fond of wheel guns. He has a carry gun, holster, speed loaders and speed strips as well as (for him) an adequate supply of ammo.

    He's in his seventies, prefers shoulders holsters, uses .38 Spl exclusively. I'm open to suggestions under a hundred bucks.

    Man it sounds like he's set to me. Maybe a nice set of grips?

    How's his current ear protection? If old and worn, maybe a new set of electronic ear muffs for range practice?

    More ammo. You can never have enough. Never.

    I agree about a new pair of ears. I doubt he has the newest electronic muffs. Great stuff.

    Well once one hits 70 what he has might just be enough

    How about a classy pocket knife.

    Grips are a good thought. Perhaps have them customized?

    My first thought on a gift goes to a nice pair of grips, provided of course you have an idea about what he likes and what works for him. If he already has decent hearing protection then I would say you can't go wrong with ammo, maybe some higher end SD loading.

    Sounds like a good candidate for a gift card. I would be afraid of buying grips, since this is a very personal purchase and odds are you will get something that he doesn't like or don't feel good in his hands.

    A 2x2x2 cartridge pouch would be a cool gift. I really like mine.

    I peeked at his most used wheelgun. It's got Pachmayr grips on it. So I ordered a set for his Model 10 that he doesn't shoot as much for fear of beating it up. That and a couple boxes of .38 aught to do it.

    We've known each other for thirty years or more, never felt the need to buy presents. But he's been buying presents for my kids these last couple years, (yes, I had kids later in life than most) so these are for my kids to give back to him.

    Ammo. Or another revolver, and ammo.
