We consider it an honor to have sat before the likes of true American heroes such as Marcus Luttrell and Ron Bellan and to hear the heartfelt words of Matt “Axe” Axelson’s family during SHOT Show 2016 as they came together with Brownells to announce the raffle of a rifle package to benefit Special Operations Wounded Warriors (SOWW).

The package includes the Axelson Tactical Rifle – one of only 99 built – serial numbered AXE01.  The rifle is a semi-auto replica of the one that Matt was carrying on June 28, 2005, when he and nine other US Navy SEALs and eight Army Aviation Soldiers were killed in combat in support of Operation Red Wings – the events of which were depicted in the book and film Lone Survivor:  The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10.   Continue reading

Win an Alien Gear Gift Card from GunLink

gift-card2If you follow the GunLink Blog, you know that we were impressed when we bought our first Cloak Tuck holsters from Alien Gear and they have kept us impressed as they have continued to expand their lineup to include OWB holsters, Cloak Tuck 2.0 holsters and a variety of clip options.  We apparently weren’t the only ones to be impressed, either; Alien Gear had to double their production just to keep up with demand.

Alien Gear’s latest offering is their gift cards and we thought it would be a great idea to give one away!

How great of an idea is that?  We can give you a holster without even knowing what pistol you carry!  In fact, the $50 gift card that we’re giving away is even enough to get TWO HOLSTERS!  If you win, you can get one for yourself and one for someone else.  Or you can be greedy and keep them both or get one holster and a pile of swag – we won’t judge you.

The entry period lasts through January 23, 2015 – coinciding with the end of our live coverage of the 2015 SHOT Show.  Don’t worry, though… our coverage of the latest and greatest that the shooting, hunting and outdoor industries have to offer doesn’t end along with the giveaway.  Be sure to stay tuned to the GunLink Forums and GunLink Blog following the show for continued coverage, reviews and more.
