I would like to take a moment and thank Brownells for being an amazing corporation. In addition to generously supporting the recent HAVA Fundraiser, I also emailed my contact there with a somewhat random question this morning, and he had amazingly comprehensive answers from two of the gunsmiths there to me before lunch. Given how busy you and I both know Brownells must be at the moment, what with the ongoing buying panic/craze, that kind of turnaround on a question that had basically nothing to do with their products was greatly appreciated.
Likewise, I would also like to thank Winchester Ammunition, Federal Premium Ammunition, and CCI Ammunition for similar turnarounds on similar questions; despite making it clear I was not talking about their products specifically, they took they time out of their unquestionably busy schedules and helped me with my quandary.
That level of customer service – when I made it clear I was not even a paying customer this time around – has helped ensure I will continue to purchase those companies’ products in the future.
On a completely dissimilar, but related, vein, I would like to announce that I will no longer be doing "test and evaluation" reviews at this site. Any further product / material / equipment / etc. review you see on this site written by me will be of a product I bought and paid for using my very own money. I cannot speak to my guest authors, but I am done T&Eing things, for reasons that may be expressed in the future, and may not. I will still accept advertising for this site, and some of the payment for that advertising may be in the form of barter (speaking of, the site’s sponsorship by Coal Creek Armory elapsed today, so if any other companies are interested…), but I will no longer be accepting products exclusively for the purpose of reviewing them.
