It turns out we were right – Lucky Gunner, Ammo.net, BulkAmmo.com, AmmoforSale.com, GunsForSale.com, and Military Ballistic Industries (the brand of bulk reloaded ammunition Lucky Gunner sells) are, in fact and truth, the same exact limited liability company:
(LuckySurvival.com just redirects to Lucky Gunner and does not appear to be a separate storefront.)
So now the only question is why the proprietors of Lucky Gunner (now that we know that storefront is the “master”) are keeping the various internal interconnections quiet…? But, really, I think we already know that answer.
To clear up some confusion that was expressed in Gunblogger Conspiracy, I do not mind any of these companies being “drop shippers” – in truth, being an industrial engineer, the concept of drop shipping appeals to me greatly on a variety of levels. As I tried to explain in the previous post, my bone of contention with Lucky Gunner is that they operate multiple, separate, disjoint storefronts as if they were competitors, and do not make the fact that they are all the same company publicly known anywhere – I, personally, find this to be rather misleading, manipulative, and deceptive. All they needed to have done was include a, “BulkAmmo.com is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lucky Gunner”-type disclaimer at the bottom of their pages, and I never would have had the slightest bit of motivation to write these posts.
Likewise, these two posts were only written to present information I thought my readership might be interested in (and, judging from the traffic, they were – the 11th will go down as my busiest day ever), as well as to question why Lucky Gunner felt compelled to hide such easily-discoverable ties between the various storefronts.
Something tells me they do not much want to talk to me at the moment, though…
