With this move, Brownells joins other large players in the mail-order ammo business like Cabela’s and Midwayusa.
I took a look at what Brownells has in stock and it is a wide-ranging list. In rifle ammo there are several difficult to find cartridges like the Weatherby magnums and Remington Short-Action Ultra Mags but you’ll find all the standard offerings—like 25 different .223 loads—as well.
One nice feature is the “Ammo Advisor” tool that allows you to check off attributes (i.e. 9mm pistol ammo by Winchester for self defense) to zero in on a specific load. It’s a useful feature.
Ok, so for our latest reader contest, the Outdoor Life Shooting Slam, we’ve gone a little overboard. One lucky soul—and I do mean lucky—is going to win four amazing guns, a ton of top-quality optics, cases of ammunition, head-to-toe shooting apparel and accessories, a $1,000 gift card from Cabelas and, to top it off, a week of custom gun instruction at Gunsite Academy in Arizona. The value of this giveaway is well over $13,000.
Three Florida doctors are suing the governor and four other top Florida officials in Miami Federal Court, claiming the recently adopted “Privacy of Firearm Owners Act" is unconstitutional because it doesn't recognize a doctor's divine status as a god who is not subject to the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
The Act, also known as the "Physician Gag Law," prohibits doctors from asking patients if they own firearms because firearm ownership is irrelevant, unless as an exploitable prelude to denying heath care for political and personal reasons. The Act threatens doctors who pry into patients' privacy with loss of their medical licenses.
But doctors say their First Amendment right to demand answers to whatever they ask -- since they are doctors, you know -- supersedes your right to privacy.
Fears that the proposed United Nation's "Small Arms Treaty" will endanger Americans' Second Amendment rights have been dismissed by many -- including some gun-rights advocacy groups -- as an irrelevant distraction in the ongoing civil rights struggle to ensure local, state, and federal government in America uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
But when Forbes' magazine writer Larry Bell says in a recent blog that the UN treaty does, in fact, target “our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms," maybe it's time to be concerned.
