I’ve been doing a lot of hunting trying to look for deals and have noticed the businesses that are and aren’t price gouging. Key here is to operate ethically especially for people that share the same hobbies as you.

Businesses that I have come across as being fair in today’s political climate:

  • Botach Tactical
  • Lambo’s Armory
  • Fr33dm Arms
  • Midway USA
  • Brownells
  • SKD Tactical
  • Bravo Company USA
  • Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore
  • Sportsmans Warehouse

Business that I will no longer deal with or they are gouging:

  • Cheaper Than Dirt

Businesses that do not support Firearms or Concealed Carry:

  • Kenneth Cole
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Groupon

Businesses Fighting for our 2nd Amendment:

  • Magpul
  • CMMG
  • LaRue Tactical
  • Olympic Firearms

Let me know of others that I can add to these categories

This text was taken directly from the NRA Email I received:

There are 20 U.S. senators, in particular, who hold the fate of your freedom in their hands.

These senators represent states where gun ownership is respected and our Second Amendment freedoms are revered.

But right now, they’re facing huge pressure from the gun ban lobby and Barack Obama to support Obama’s extreme gun control agenda!

So please, call each of the senators below and tell them to vote NO on any gun ban…NO on any magazine ban…NO on criminalizing private firearm transfers…and NO on any gun registration scheme.

Sen. Max Baucus 202-224-2651
Sen. Mark Begich 202-224-3004
Sen. Susan Collins 202-224-2523
Sen. Joe Donnelly 202-224-4814

Spread your calls out over several days if you need to.

And remember: It doesn’t matter if you do not live in these senators’ states – YOU NEED TO CALL THEM. After all, the votes they cast will affect you no matter where you live!

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to winning this battle. Now is not the time to let up! Call each of these 20 senators as soon as you can.

By working together, we can defeat the Obama gun ban agenda and save the Second Amendment!!!

Are you looking for ammo?

ITS Tactical pointed me in the right direction since I receive there newsletter. I took a look and was pleased with the simplicity and ease of use of this website. It’s very web 1.0 but it works effectively and efficiently. It has several columns that are very important when shopping for ammo. It has the full spec info of the ammo, when it was added, price per round, and full price of the ammo in question, whether it is in stock or backorderable, and the seller in question. In the future they plan to list reloading equipment (primers, brass, etc.)

Here’s a snippet of what it looks like

Hey Patriots,

I’m currently working on a few projects I would share. Let me know what you think. I dabble in the woodworking and construction realm from time to time. My father is far better at it than I am but I am getting better at it the more I do.

Current Projects:

Hanging Ammo Cartridge Display Cases – I keep seeing these for sale and at local gun shows and thought it would be cool to build some ones out of oak or ash and felt line them myself and keep some of the cartridges I have / use on display

Hanging Knife Display Case – I have a decent collection of knives I would like to keep in a locked display case that can hang on the wall. I’m thinking felt lined for this as well and with some kind of locking glass door for some level of security.

Some Mobile Scenario Pistol Courses – I have plenty of plywood, 2×4’s, and a large field to the side of my parent’s house out in the sticks. I was thinking I could build some mobile platforms whether they be half height or full height to simulate kneeling cover, doorways, corners, windows, etc. This way I could work through different scenarios when practicing conceal and carry and defensive handgun/shotgun techniques. If anyone has any ideas or tips on this project please let me know.

Frames – I want to build some wooden frames for some of the cooler posters I have acquired from different firearm manufacturers over the years.

Tactical Patch Display Case – Same idea as those above this would be felt lined and a shallow display case with a glass door. The patches could adhere to the felt and be left on display when they are not in use on my tactical gear.

Let me know what you think

Recently I bought a new knife from Cabela’s and thought I would share my personal review. This is a mid size folder for your pocket it is fairly light and has a stainless steel blade. It is spring assisted but I have to say the initial opening phase is rather stiff and takes a strong thumb to get it to go into assisted mode. Once it does, it is almost automatic. Possibly some WD40 will loosen it up a tad. It locks into place and can be disengaged via the silver button. The product can be had around $20 bucks and looks to be made in China. It is sharp out of the box and holds an edge thus far.

Product Specs:
Blade length: 3″.
Overall length: 6.6″.
Closed length: 4″.
Weight: 2.46 oz.

Hey Fellow Gun Enthusiasts,

I just wanted to write a post on the recent experience I had with Ruger Customer Service. I contacted them even in the heat of the current climate they got back to me within a day. I had sent a small letter talking about how big of a fan I am. I own several Ruger firearms and have never been displeased. I even have a dog named Ruger. I requested that if they could send me some cool swag it would be much appreciated. I was extremely surprised when a large envelope filled with at least 50 stickers of assorted sizes/shapes/styles, and large gun posters of different makes & models showed up. Talk about neat. This will make for an awesome gun room or show room someday. It even got me motivated to send letters to other manufacturers. H&K sent me a couple H&K Stickers and so did Smith & Wesson. Remington sent me a couple hats, a keychain, and some large cartridge posters. I’m all stocked up on cool swag to display whenever I get the room. Just thought I would share,

Thank you for contacting me regarding gun control policy and gun safety. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.

As you know, the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees Americans the fundamental right to bear arms. I strongly support legal and safe gun ownership by law-abiding citizens and have consistently voted to uphold this constitutional right. I welcomed and supported the recent Supreme Court decision in the District of Columbia v. Heller case that made clear that the constitutional right to gun ownership is an individual one.

At the same time, we have to make sure that guns do not fall into the hands of individuals who should not have them. We should have sensible, constitutional controls on gun ownership that address safety in our communities, like preventing the mentally ill and criminals from possessing guns.

Recent tragedies, such as the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, and the horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut, have made it clear that our nation’s current gun laws should be reconsidered. Efforts to close the gun show loophole, provide for universal background checks on all guns sales, and to ensure that those with court-determined, dangerous mental health diagnoses do not get access to guns are being considered. While I want to closely study any proposal before I vote on it, I welcome these initiatives, because they represent sensible steps to keep our communities safe while respecting gun ownership rights. Importantly, legal experts believe each of these steps is consistent with the Second Amendment.

Knowing that those responsible for some of the most prominent mass shootings in recent history have suffered from mental illness, it is equally clear that we must also consider mental health services available to our citizens. A more robust mental health care system may help identify and treat individuals who need help before they resort to violence. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare,” will substantially expand important mental health coverage when it is fully implemented in 2014. I am hopeful that efforts to repeal these vital expansions in mental health care will come to an end, while new efforts will be undertaken to expand access to care.

Importantly, I firmly believe that an attempt to promote appropriate gun safety measures can be done without infringing upon law-abiding citizens’ right to own firearms or unduly burdening the hunting and sportsmanship culture of Missouri.

You may be interested to know that, in the past, my commitment to respecting the Second Amendment has led me to vote to permit residents of the District of Columbia to own and purchase firearms and to prevent funding for any international organization, including the United Nations, that places a tax on any firearm owned by a United States citizen. I have also opposed other inappropriate measures related to gun ownership rights, such as forcing Missouri to accept other states’ firearms laws.

While the debate over appropriate gun control measures is divisive, I believe there is middle ground here. This nation can come together to support sensible laws that prevent the mass murder of innocent citizens — especially innocent children — while we continue to respect our constitution and its Second Amendment rights. Please know that, as your United States Senator, I will keep your thoughts in mind as Congress considers gun-related legislation in the months ahead.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other issue.

Sincerely,

Claire McCaskill
United States Senator

P.S. If you would like more information about resources that can help Missourians, or what I am doing in the Senate on your behalf, please sign up for my email newsletter at http://mccaskill.senate.gov.

Stay active and be informed patriots!
