We got snow in northern Iowa this week – and I bought a new Farmer's Almanac. Kinda afraid what is in the forecast for the winter. I know winter's coming – and some of you had a major blizzard already if you're in North Dakota.
It's officially fall! I truly hope you're able to get out in pursuit of your favorite game - or have solid plans to do so in the coming weeks.
As I write this, a goodly number of us are ramping up for the Labor Day weekend, the "unofficial" end of summer.
It's hard to believe July has almost passed us by! Now is the time to get the most out of our warm-weather range time and pull triggers rather than sit in front of the computer.
Some good news . . . Many of the parts and pieces that have been so scarce are coming back in stock. After months of being buried under backorders, manufacturers are starting to catch up with the amazing demand. It’s kinda exciting to see what’s on the next truckload.
OK – I’ve got A Great Big Announcement to make (cue the drum roll . . .):
BROWNELLS 20- AND 30-ROUND AR-15/M16 MAGAZINES
ARE NOW IN STOCK!!
I'd like to start off talking about the Gunsmith Conference & Career Fair . . . it just gets better and better every year! I know, I'm sounding like a broken record - but it's true! When we started seven years ago, we held it at our Montezuma, Iowa, headquarters and had a handful of very enthusiastic folks show up.
I love that old whiz this time of year – "The spring is sprung, The grass is rize, I wonder where the birdies is" – 'cause Spring just sprung, and around here along with the birdies, we got about 6 inches of heavy snow.
It's been so darned busy here, it was tough getting the info I needed from our 2013 SHOT Show crew to tell you what they saw that they liked and wanted me to mention. But, managed to get it done, so here goes . . .
I can hardly believe we’re already a full month into the New Year, but here we are! What I really want to talk to you about this month is the 2013 edition of our Gunsmith Conference & Career Fair that’s coming up fast.
I have rewritten this message 5 or 6 times over the weekend. Each time it hits me as not really "right". Christmas is the time to enjoy friends, to spend time with family, to take a much needed break, to cap off the year and celebrate all the hard work from the previous 12 months... It’s a time to reflect.
It's certainly been a "November to Remember" in our industry. The "30 Days of Thanks" Sweepstakes awarded 30 different Brownells customers with 30 different neat products – from riflescopes and AR-15 accessories to gun vaults and sunglasses. It was our way of saying "Thank You!" to all of you who support us. I really mean it…we're mighty grateful, and thankful, for all of your support!
