Remember, no sale is worth this madness. Shop online!

So let’s get going with it the best of our hand-picked deals…so far until the main attraction.

Ammo In Stock

Ammo is at the top of mind for many…us included. 9mm is slowly lowering in price to around to 34 cents per round (CPR) for the good brass stuff. But some calibers are still super hard to find or very expensive.

Here’s some of what’s in stock at reasonable prices (right now):





Brownells has a very nice Free $25 for every $100 Gift Card deal. We’ve already gotten ours and it takes about 24 hours to see both in your email.

    Please stop recommending and promoting AR500 armor. It is negligent at this point and discredits your other reviews when you continue to promote steel plates that will get people injured. The era of ignorance on body armor is over. We all know to pursue Hesco, BAO, RMA, etc. I say this as a big fan of PPT overall.

      And what exactly is wrong with AR500 body armor? Having been at locations where testing has been conducted on these plates, I always wonder what factual information people base their opinions on. AR500 is up to NIJ standards, and has been tested multiple times by independent organizations. As someone who also has been present for testing of this armor for LEO acquisitions, i can personally attest to the fact that it does precisely what it is marketed to do. Not everyone can afford Hesco plates, and I would rather see people get what they can afford instead of having no plates at all.
