Doing My Part To Stimulate The (Gun) Economy - 2013 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.
If you know of other Black Friday sales, please share them in the comments section.
