Firearms Accessories at Discounted Prices

The bulk of my sales are firearms but most customers miss out on the savings I can find for them on accessories. The firearms industry operates with low mark-up percentages on firearms. Due to internet sales of firearms and dealers like me who operate with low overhead results in only 6-8% mark-up on many firearms. Many of my customers come to me due to the low prices I can offer.

What many customers do not realize is that I can also purchase many of the other accessories they need with their firearms. I can order optics, clothing, camping gear, chronographs, cleaning supplies, ammunition, bags, magazines, safety glasses, hearing protection, knives and numerous other items at discounted pricing over normal retail prices. Do you need to stock up on your emergency food supplies? I can order prepackaged food that comes packaged for long term storage (up to 25 years). Do you need a Leupold or Zeiss scope for that new rifle? I can order it for you. I can also get you the mount and rings as well as mounting kits if you need them.

I can also special order firearms as needed. I have accounts set up with Alexander Arms, Rock Island Armory, STI, Volquartsen, DPMS and other manufacturers. Many times if I do not already have an account set up I can set one up in order to get you want you want.

The firearms industry has become extremely competitive and this results in better deals for the consumers. The next time you are looking to make a firearms purchase, let me know what accessories you will need with your firearm. I’ll do my best to find you the lowest possible price and help you get your gear set up the way you want it for the purpose you have in mind.

I would like to leave you with one tidbit this weekend. The elections this year may perhaps be the most important elections in years. The choices we make at the poles will have an impact on our children and their children. Please, research the candidates and head to the poles and vote. Do not make excuses for not going, we need your vote. The firearms privileges we now have could easily be removed with one presidential administration. In addition to taking the time to vote you should also join the NRA or renew your membership. A mere $25 helps to ensure we can keep the gun rights we now have as well as providing you with $2500 in firearms insurance. Take a few seconds and click on the NRA link to the left, it will be ten minutes of your life I am sure you will not regret.

What caliber do you carry?

Being a firearms dealer I always run across things that surprise me. This past week I was reading an internet forum where firearms dealers were telling what handgun they chose to carry for personal protection. As you would expect, there were some nice choices – STI, Kimber etc. But, one really surprised me. Now, I’m sure somebody out there that will read this may be offended, but hopefully it may make you reconsider. One firearms dealer carried a North American Arms mini in twenty-two magnum. I would have never guessed anyone that sold firearms would choose that as a daily carry. <p>

If you have followed my blog, you will have read my post on various calibers and shot placement. Twenty-two magnum is nowhere on the list. In some extreme case I can see carrying that gun as a back-up, but not as primary carry. Some may argue that five shots of twenty-two magnum could stop someone, but I would argue that a brick could do the same thing and be much cheaper than the NAA. <p>

Why would someone choose such a small caliber in a handgun that is not the easiest to shoot and aim? It is better than nothing, but just barely. Now, if he would have chosen the Kel-Tec PMR 30 (which holds 30 plus one of twenty-two magnum) I could understand. But, five rounds out of a minute revolver? <p>

There are too many choices even for someone on a very limited budget. For example, I had a single mother on a very limited and fixed income that needed something to protect her and her teenage daughter. I fixed her up with a six shot .357 magnum revolver for right at $300. It gave her a gun that would fire with every pull of the trigger, had minimal mechanics to learn (like tap, rack and slide drills or multiple safeties to disengage) and would also fire a variety of ammo. She could use lower recoil .38’s, .38 plus P or full power .357 magnum rounds. <p>

So, this week I want to encourage you to really consider what your primary carry weapon is. After the tragedy this week in the Carson City IHOP you should place yourself in that situation. You are sitting down eating breakfast and a crazy man intent on murder walks in with an AK47 and a handgun. And, all you have to defend yourself is a five shot twenty-two magnum mini revolver. <p>

Ruger LCP

Therefore, let’s consider some better carry options. How about the Ruger LCP in .380 ACP? How about 2% over my cost, $297 out the door for local buyers – I’ll even offer the Ruger NRA edition of the LCP, $343 out the door. How about an LCP with a laser? $426 out the door for an LCP with the Crimson trace laser. <p>

Maybe you want something a bit more substantial -an SR9C for$415 out the door. All of these I am offering for only 2% over my cost through 9/16 or until the distributors run out of stock (whichever comes first). <p>

One last special in remembrance of the 911 tragedy ten years ago. I will offer the Taurus PT1911 in 9mm for 1% over cost, $493 out the door . This offer will be good through 9/16 or when supplies are exhausted, whichever is first. The distributor only has 12 of these in stock, no back orders, when those 12 are gone the deal is over. All five of these handguns come with Davidson’s lifetime warranty. <p>
