Making a Buck

I noticed that the NRA Blog is being highlighted over at Ammoland.com, which includes a short interview. I’ll be honest, I’m not really sure what I think about Ammoland.com, but I checked them out when they first got on my radar. It seems to be operated by an Internet marketing and e-commerce company known as Sure Solutions Inc, located in Manasquan, New Jersey.

I’m not against people making a buck, or people commercializing their blogs, by any stretch. But I’m not sure what to think about someone’s who’s primary motivate would seem to be profit. I’m not against profit, we have a lot of folks out there who make a living in the issue, like Jim Shepherd of the Outdoor Wire whose online network includes Rich Grassi at  Tactical Wire, and Tammy Sapp with Women’s Outdoor Wire. Also J.R. Absher of the Outdoor Pressroom, or Michael Bane of Downrange TV. While these are folks who are in the business and making a living, they are also well known within the outdoor and gun rights community, and have long participated in the culture. I know when the Indians come to attack the wagon train, they’ll be fighting right there along side me.

I would not go so far as to say we shouldn’t welcome Ammoland.com into our community, but I question what their interest is in our issue besides making a buck. Our community has been under continuous attack for decades, and when it comes time to circle the wagons, can we depend on people who are just in it for the money?

    I’ve always seen them as a “blog” that reprints press releases.

    I’d rather go to Ammo Engine, to get actual prices.
