Doing My Part To Stimulate The (Gun) Economy - 2014 Edition (Updated)
Herewith my annual listing of Black Friday or pre-Black Friday deals that are gun, knife, outdoor, tactical, or prep related. In the past I've posted this list later in the week but it seems that a number of retailers aren't waiting to Friday or even Thursday. I will be doing updates through the week as more of the deals are released.
I have included any coupon codes if needed. If you find others, please share them in the comments section.
Think of this as a first draft. I have a lot more to add but wanted to get this part out.
The Old Grouch's Military Surplus
I like the idea of supporting friends and buying local. Tim told me the prices go live on Thanksgiving and he has some great prices. The reporters camped out in Ferguson ought to give it a look as he even will have some gas masks.
Begins Monday, Nov. 24th at Midnight CST and last for eight days. $20 off a $100 purchase with code 14BLKFRI.
The sale starts at 12:01 AM on Black Friday, November 28. Customers can also enter the code "J2Y" at checkout to receive an additional 10% discount on all orders for any products totaling $150 or more. It runs through midnight on Monday, Dec. 1st.
