BREAKING: Brownells Now Selling Guns Online

    Brownells has been a trusted source for gunsmithing supplies, gun parts and more recently ammunition. Brownells has been serving the shooting community for over 75 years. Earlier this year they dipped their toes into the gun market when they opened their 7,000 sq. ft. retail store in Grinnell, Iowa which sold guns alongside the gun parts and accessories they sell online. When that store was announced we should have predicted that they were getting ready to sell guns online. Today they launched which has an incredible amount of firearms listed for sale. There are 1,337 handgun models, 1,513 rifle models and 688 shotguns models.
