Disclosure: Remington is now advertising on The Firearm Blog

The Freedom Group is now using my blog to advertise Remington products. This will not effect my coverage of The Freedom Group or their competitors. I cover all firearms manufacturers with equal enthusiasm.

The Freedom Group

It is great to have the biggest player in the industry seeing value in my blog.

UPDATE: I have gotten messages from people concerned that I will ban all comments criticizing Remington or I will refuse to write anything critical. I can assure you that my editorial policy has not changed. The Freedom Group purchased ad space, not my integrity.

Steve Johnson

Founder and Dictator-In-Chief of TFB. A passionate gun owner, a shooting enthusiast and totally tacti-uncool. Favorite first date location: any gun range. Steve can be contacted here.


  • Jarkko

    That is so cool! Good to see that you´re getting something out from this. 🙂

  • Tha Dave

    I agree it’s good to hear that you have been recognized by the big dogs.

  • Brad

    I am glad you are getting some of the well deserved attention but I just hope we can all agree Bushmaster FUBAR’d the ACR as we did before the freedom group began investing!

    • Brad, you can say what you like (within reason) in the comments, but I have always been slightly-pro-ACR. Mostly because I never believed the low-price point that they kept preaching about. So when the price was announced it was exactly what I expected. Just about everyone else was incredibly disappointed.

      • Just to clarify: Remington is buying ad space: not a muzzle.

  • SpudGun

    Woot! Well done Steve! Money, money, money! It is fantastic that you’re finally being financially rewarded for all of your hard work.

    Does this mean we can no longer bash Remington / Bushmaster products in the comments section?

  • SpudGun

    Just read your muzzle comment, good to know.

  • Tell them to start selling H&R barrels in Canada. If they sell the guns they should sell the barrels dangit.

  • Congratulations, Steve!

    This is a very positive recognition of your hard work and I hope other gunmakers will follow in Remington’s footsteps. Hopefully, this association will also be a positive way for Remington to get feedback on their products and for them to talk to potential buyers about changes / improvements that they make in their product line.

    Best of all, I see a lot of breaking news here – now that Marlin and Dakota are a part of the Remington stable, the future looks even better!

  • Gun.up

    Will you get any exclusive content on remington firearms?

  • Luiz

    AWESOME! Congratulations Steve!

  • Kurgen99

    Hey, they make good products…

  • Thanks for the disclosure and welcome to Remington! And congrats to Steve for having such and awesome blog that you can attract Remington.

  • Alex

    Good job and congratulations!

  • Hogan

    Grats on the big client!
    You have (in my minds eye) the best gun blog out there. Always interesting and with great topic variety. I hope it continues to grow.

  • Travis

    Congratulations! Keep up the good work.

  • Martin

    I’m waiting for Firearmblog games and prizes!

  • “gunner”

    remington helping pay the rent? no problem with that here.

  • Jusuchin

    Congrats on the recognition! Now if you made this place a subscription only servcie I’d be very displeased.

    Because I’m a lazy gun-otaku and I don’t wanna do effort when catching up on the most recent things in the firearms world.

  • greasyjohn

    I, for one, welcome our new Freedom Group Overlords.

  • bill-tb

    Congratulations … be fair, and always be truthful.

  • YamaLink

    I’m confident Steve’s style/writing/objectivity will not change….

    The blog is what it is: good enough to attract many passionate firearm owners who visit regularly.

    If Steve would somehow change any of the aforementioned due to advertising, said passionate firearm owners/blog readers would leave site.

    And so would Remington.

    This is all stating the overly-obvious, of course. All Steve has to do is be himself and the rest will take care of itself. Except now he’s been rewarded with a little coin. Good job!

  • SoulTown

    Congrats! This blog is always a pleasure to visit, and it’s great to see recognition like that.

  • “gunner”

    i do hope the gentlemen at remington are taking due note of the positive comments here.

  • SpudGun

    @greasyjohn – LOLZ 🙂

  • Zulu

    Very cool, Steve! I’m happy for ya =)

  • translated this with google translation great post. thanks
