Colorado magazine ban, magpul

Magpul is doing it's best to help Colorado citizens facing a magazine ban.


We are proud to announce that within a matter of days we will be going live with a new program. Due to a bill currently moving through the Colorado legislature, there is the possibility that Colorado residents' ability to purchase standard capacity magazines will soon be infringed. Before that happens, and Magpul is forced to leave the state in order to keep to our principles, we will be doing our... best to get standard capacity PMAGs into the hands of any Colorado resident that wants them.

Verified Colorado residents will be able to purchase up to ten (10) standard capacity AR/M4 magazines directly from Magpul, and will be given immediate flat-rate $5 shipping, bypassing our current order queue.

Our customers outside of Colorado, please know that our PMAG production will continue at an ever-increasing rate until we do relocate, shipments to our distributors in other states will continue, and that we do not expect relocation to significantly impact PMAG production. We are also aware that Colorado is not the only state with existing or pending magazine capacity restrictions; we are working on programs for other affected states as well.

Full details and instructions will be announced when we are able to go live; please watch here for the coming announcement.

Dear Valued Customer,

In the spring of ‘77, I left the Air Force and moved to Columbia, MO to pursue my dream of running a gun shop. You see, I’d always loved the outdoors; especially shooting and hunting. Some of my fondest childhood memories involve shooting and hunting with my dad and brothers. Then, as an adult, some of my greatest joys have come while shooting and hunting with my wife, my kids, my friends and now my grandkids. I love this industry, I love our way of life and I love serving Customers.

Now, our way of life is being challenged like never before and our Customers are responding with a flood of orders. In the 35 years I’ve been in business, I’ve never seen anything like this.

We’re monitoring the political environment, our industry’s capabilities and our business on a daily basis and making policy and process changes to better serve Customers. But please understand, while we’re still able to get most orders out the same day they’re placed, you may experience longer than normal wait times on the phone or when you chat with us on the web. Also, it’s taking us a few extra days to respond to emails. Finally, we’re out of a bunch of products I know you want which breaks my heart. And when we do get them in, they rarely spend the night in the building because they’re ordered almost immediately. We’re tirelessly working to get products in the door and out to Customers as fast as we can. But, until supply catches up with demand, we’re having to limit quantities and backorders on certain products.

One thing we haven’t done is change our prices because of this surge in demand. Prices do change from time to time as they always have, but we’d never change prices because of something like this. Our pricing strategy is one of the reasons we’ve put quantity limits on certain products. We’ve all seen certain products selling two or three times higher than normal, and MidwayUSA doesn’t want to enable that type of activity. Also, we want to serve as many Customers as possible when we receive high-demand products. If it’s any consolation, none of our Employees can order products with quantity limits (myself included).

We’ve all agreed to put Customers first. And that’s the way it’ll always be at MidwayUSA.
As always, everything we do is intended to be in the best interest of our Customers and we’re eternally grateful for your patience and loyalty.

Thanks for Your Business!

Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA

Policy Update for State and Local Agency Law Enforcement Sales:

In response to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, Crusader Weaponry has been forced to reconsider the sale of products to state and local agencies in those states.

Effective immediately, in an effort to see that all sales are legal, Crusader Weaponry and/or its employees, will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to the local law enforcement / government agencies of those states. This means that if the citizens of any given state are no longer able to legally own our firearms we will not sell to any local/state/governmental law enforcement agency in that state.

State and local laws have always been a serious concern of Crusader Weaponry. We can not, in good conscience, arm governmental agencies in states that infringe on the constitutional rights of their residents.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

N.Y. bill would force gun owners to buy at least $1M in insurance

Oh look another attack on 2nd amendment rights! New York is trying to pass a bill that would require firearm owners to carry 1 million dollars in liability insurance, basically a tax for firearm owners costing 1600-2000 dollars a year.


A bill introduced in the New York State Assembly by Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, a Democrat, would require the state’s residents to acquire liability insurance as a condition for gun ownership.

“Any person in this state who shall own a firearm shall, prior to such ownership, obtain and continuously maintain a policy of liability insurance in an amount not less than one million dollars specifically covering any damages resulting from any negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person,” the measure, dubbed S2353, reads.


Liability insurance for $1 million in coverage for gun owners is estimated to cost between $1,600 and $2,000 annually, the Examiner reports.

Real targets, the government is coming for you

Real targets that Department of Homeland Security has purchased. Paying 2 million dollars to for them. This is after a fairly recent 2 BILLION round purchases. They buy 2 billion bullets then these targets...note at the time of this post the manufacturer's site is currently down from hardcore traffic (and I suspect they are being actively shut down by internet users)

Kroger is anti-customer safety, anti-gun so boycott them

I originally posted this to a few pro-gun forums on the day it happened. Kroger is anti 2nd amendment, anti-gun, anti customers being safe.



I entered the store this evening (usually I go Sunday morning) and did my shopping in a basket, was in the store for approximately 15 minutes. I am standing at self-checkout scanning my items, have approximately 25 items bagged, with 1 left to scan, I see a 20-something with a few days of beard growth rapidly approaching in a hoodie and he blurts out "are you a cop" I pivoted slightly but kept my gun opposite side of him and went 100% alert "No are you?" I replied. Like a tool, he reaches into his half zipped hoodie and pulls out his little ID tag "I'm a plain clothes officer with Kroger loss-prevention, I tried to get to you before you got up front, but could you leave your gun in your car from now on" I said "do you not want my business?" "it's not that sir, just please leave your gun in your car next time" I then raised my voice so everyone within 15 feet could easily hear me, but not shouting or being irate and said "If you do not want my business, you can put my groceries up I don't want to give you my money" and I left the store.

I went to the other side of the street and gave Marsh my business. I was in there twice as long trying to find products that they just didn't have, applied for a Marsh card, and several employees saw my firearm and never said a word, didn't even stare, take a second-glance, or anything. Marsh will have my business from now on.

At the time of this incident there were NO markings outside or inside the store saying no firearms. Why? Perhaps Kroger is afraid to scare customers off, oops they do that with their mall-ninja 'officer'. I urge everyone that shops at this location, or knows anyone that does to stop doing business with them.
