Default Brownells

Stopped off at their brick and mortar location today while traveling through Iowa. Not sure what I expected - I went in like a kid on their first trip to Disneyland, but didn't leave feeling the same way. No one said so much as boo to me the whole time. They had a very nicely appointed living room area for the wives I guess; there were 3 there when we walked in, and my wife joined them. They had a pretty nice collection of firearms, but not much more than what you'd find at a good sized gun store - although they were all out for you to fondle. The other stuff was the sort of stuff you'd find at any other gun store I guess - no rip roaring deals. Lots of ammo, but either premium or bulk. Having just returned from 3 years overseas, I did walk very slowly through the guns, and managed to put my hands on several things I wanted to see. But after 20 minutes, I got a free cup of coffee and we got back on 80 east. I've given them a lot of money over the years, and will probably continue to do so. Just was sorta hoping for a more "magical" experience!

Hopefully the rest of your return stateside will be better. Nice to have you back this side of the pond...

Ditto on the welcome back home.

Thanks gents, it’s been a long drive - 4000 miles so far. We’re slowing down as we get closer and stopping if we see something interesting and my wife saw the Brownells sign. It’s been a great trip seeing family although parts of ‘merica have been weird.

Welcome back TN and best of luck at your new posting. Sounds like a prestigious position. Good for you!

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.
