Brownells, based in Grinnell, IA, has been a seller of gun parts, accessories, tools, magazines and hard-to-find items — all-things guns — for more than three-quarters of a century. This week, the company has officially stepped into the gun business in its online portal.

It’s hard to fathom anyone who loves to shoot, compete, own, collect and tinker with firearms who hasn’t heard about or shopped at Brownells. Now, Brownells customers may purchase rifles, shotguns and handguns from most major gunmakers and manufacturers.

A press release this week reports the company’s entry into selling firearms online “makes Brownells a true one-stop-shop for gun owners and enthusiasts by offering the gun and nearly any part, accessory or tool possible to make that new firearm uniquely their own.”

The new Brownells firearms section features more than 3,500 production firearms from over 30 popular gun manufacturers, including Smith & Wesson, Glock, Ruger, Winchester, Remington, SIG Sauer, Daniel Defense and many more.

Gun sales at Brownells began Nov. 9.

“We’ve been a gun company from the beginning,” said Pete Brownell, CEO of Brownells. “For 77 years, we’ve serviced all corners of the firearms market – new shooters to gunsmiths. This is just one example of many upcoming programs we’ll be launching to serve every portion of the gun industry.”

Customers may order guns online using the simple, step-by-step instructions at the Brownells FFL page. The quickest, easiest method for completing an online gun purchase will be to choose a Brownells Featured Dealer from the online list of FFL dealers who have agreed to perform transfers on guns bought from Brownells.

FFL dealers interested in becoming a Brownells Featured Dealer can learn more at Featured Dealer Portal.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
