Under the Gun: Black Friday Shopping Made Easy

G&A found Black Friday deals so easy, even a last-minute shopper can do it.

Under the Gun: Black Friday Shopping Made Easy

While we already know Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year, did you know its earliest known mention came long before its name? The 1951 journal, “Factory Management and Maintenance” brings up the popular employee practice of calling off sick the day after Thanksgiving for a four-day weekend. Although this seems completely implausible by today’s standards, (who are we kidding? It’s completely plausible) we still manage to find time for this morning-bird holiday that’s gained some serious traction for shoppers and retailers alike, taking them out of the “red” and into the “black.” So, in the spirit of holiday power shopping, on and off the well-beaten beaten track, Guns & Ammo reached out for the exclusive pre-Black Friday sales scoop on everything we love to love, but for less.


Springfield Armory

Black Friday

For those of our readers who enjoy having their carry conceal pistol, Springfield Armory will be featuring their Hellcat Series as part of their Black Friday sale because who wouldn’t want the bragging rights of owning the world’s highest capacity micro-compact 9mm? Also be sure to check out their other day-after-Thanksgiving sales like the Saint AR-15 Pistol 5.56 and the rifle inspired by the shortened “tanker” Garand rifles of World War II, the M1a Tanker.


Crossbreed Holsters

Blackhawk

Black Friday

♪On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…errrr...wait. Let’s try this again. ♪On the first day of Christmas shopping sales, and the week after, and the week after, my true love found for me 40% off all clearance items, 25% off all A.R.C holsters, 25% all outerwear, 25% off all gloves, 25% off all on-gun components, and a cartridge in a pear tree. Isn’t that how the song goes? At Blackhawk it does. One day of Black Friday sales wasn’t enough, so they’ve given you two weeks of Christmas specials to look forward to and there’s something at every good price point, even freebies. Each new day will also bring a new “Daily Deal” that will run for 24 hours only. And that’s great news for those of us who’d rather sleep in on Friday than wrestle the day-after-turkey-day masses. A complete sales schedule can be found on Blackhawk’s website.


Leupold

Black Friday

Have anyone on your list who’s going on a hunting trip? Anyone who’s expecting, and has already promised, to take down the infamous-but-elusive sasquatch of the deer world? Almost of mythical proportions? We all have at least one person in our lives who fits the bill of hunting legendary hunts, but came home empty handed, and Leupold wants to change that — and for less. Ready for its avid aimers, now through December 31st you’ll find their VX-6HD 3-18x50 CDS-ZL2 (30mm) SF FireDot Duplex for $200 less than the usual MSRP price, and their VX-3i 3.5-10x40 (1 inch) Matte Duplex, VX-3i 4.5-14x40 CDS (1 inch) Matte Duplex and the VX-3i 4.5-14x50 (1 inch) Matte Duplex for $100 less. That’s a whole lot of savings left for those fancy Christmas flavored coffees.

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
