Why trust Santa to bring you what you want when you can just buy gifts for yourself?

There’s tons of Christmas gun deal and sales for you to get that upper, trigger, optic, ammo, or whatever!

And of course…we’ll be keeping this as updated as possible as new deals come out!

Palmetto State Armory

PSA’s AR-15 Days of Christmas is still in full swing! Big discounts on Uppers, Lowers, Complete Rifles, Optics, and more!

They also still have their “Christmas-15” AR stripped lower in stock!  Yup…it’s the leg lamp from a Christmas Story.

Aero Precision

Aero Precision is one of our favorite manufacturers around here. We’ve used and abused just about everything they have to offer.

25% off Stripped Lower and Upper Receivers, Scope Mounts, and Handguards.

20% off Complete Uppers and Lowers

Brownells is the big dog when it comes to guns, ammo, holsters, parts…pretty much everything you need to feed your addiction hobby.  If you’re looking for a one-stop shop this year, you can certainly do worse than Brownells.

They even have gift certificates so you can take the easy way out and just get that gun nut in your life a license to get themselves what they want.

If you really want to impress someone (or treat yourself right this holiday season) then we highly recommend Brownell’s Retro line of AR-15 and AR-10s.

Brownells Retro Rifles

Personally, I would get the BRN-601, 5.56mm, 20″, in OD Green – on sale for $1,150 AND you get a $100 gift card with it!


Looking for a sweet stripped lower to complete a build?  They have tons of Aero Precision lowers starting from $44.99..

Cabelas Christmas 2018

Their Christmas deals are live right now, but the Cabelas Holiday Clearance sale starts tomorrow (12/26). Check out their deals now AND tomorrow to find the best prices on…well, everything!

Rainier Arms

Rainier is one of, if not the absolute best places to get high-end AR parts, optics, and other components, as well as top of the line guns.

Their End of Year sale has some of the best deals you’ll see for this kind of gear.

If you want something high-end AND totally badass, Battle Arms Development Tanker Rifle SBR in .300 BLK is for you:

Note that this is an SBR, tax stamp will be extra. On sale for $2,800 (normally $3,000)

Or you can opt for something a little more useful, Grey Ghost Precision MKII GRIM in 6.5 Creedmoor – $2,600 (normally $3,070)

Wise Company

Freeze Dried food isn’t at the top of anyone’s holiday meal list, but you should have some stored away for when [insert relevant disaster] might happen to you. For most of us at PPT, it’s wild fires and earthquakes that we prep for.

Wise Food Supply

    PSA’s online ordering system takes the pmag code but doesn’t give a discount. Anyone else have this issue? Hung up after 10 minutes on hold with PSA customer service .

      Just tried it myself, it took the code and gave me the discount. Give it another try I would say, I'm using Chrome if that helps. Good luck!

    Springfield Armory "Range Officer" is a nice 1911 and smaller than a full size model making it easier to carry. Also Cabela's has a 10% off no minimum order with free S/H using code 17CLUB1214. Today only but they offer other deals from time to time. As a Cabela's VISA card holder I also receive extra points on all my purchases.
