By now I am sure you are all familiar with the concept of Groupon and Living Social and the like… Well, it would appear as though someone took the idea and applied it to the firearm community, in the form of GearHog, and today they are offering $100 gift certificates at USAAmmo.com.
We have had nothing but good luck with the bulk-deal websites we have used, with the results ranging from trying new restaurants we might not have otherwise to making Better Half’s recent trip to the Pacific NorthWet significantly cheaper and more interesting. The backend for this particular one is handled by Chompon, which seems to be carving out a niche in the niche-group-buying world, recursively enough.
And, really, 50% off ammunition – even factory reloads – is a hell of a deal these days… It makes .38 Special, 158gr, Flat Point Full Metal Jacket rounds all of $0.15 a bang (for 500 rounds), shipped to your door, which is a full $0.10 cheaper a round than I could find on AmmoEngine.
So, yeah, I have mine… how about you?
(Note: Links to Groupon, Living Social, and GearHog in this post will make me money if you buy things through them. So buy things! However, contrary to the FTC’s assumption of guilt regarding bloggers, they did not directly pay me anything to write this post.)
