Daily Digest: Happy Thanksgiving Edition

I’m surprised, but every-YouTube-channel-and-it’s-brother didn’t put out a “blowing up a turkey” video for Thanksgiving. I’m not sure if it’s just because pumpkins are cheap and turkeys aren’t, but I’m strangely pleased, because even I wasn’t looking forward to a week+ of exploding turkey. In fact, only one of my subscribed channels did a turkey video, but it was Jerry Miculek, and he did it in style. No C4, no det cord, no .50BMG, not even Tannerite. Just a massive 400 grain .460 Weatherby Magnum at about 2600 feet/sec. Watch that bird come apart at 20,000 frames per second! After the jump, a few Black Friday sale alerts for your shopping pleasure. . .

First, the MidwayUSA .22LR ammo backorder deal that I told you about back on Halloween is still available. A 1400-round bucket of Remington Golden Bullet for $59.99 + shipping (limit 1) can be backordered with an expected in-stock date of 12/31. My shipped price worked out to 5.4 cents/round. You can find it here.

Next, Spike’s Tactical has a few things on sale at 15% off for Black Friday. Mostly basic AR components like buffer tubes, BCGs, and springs. You can find the list here.

And finally, a company called Ammoman.com has a rather interesting Black Friday sale going on. It seems that when they have packages that come in damaged, their guys take the ammo out of the box, throw it in a barrel, and pile it up in the corner of the warehouse as “waste.” People don’t want damaged packaging it seems. So they have all this ammo, sorted by caliber but not anything else, a mixed bag of bullet weights and types. For example, the 9mm bin has rounds ranging from full metal jacket to jacketed hollow point, 115 grain to 147 grain, all mixed together. What they decided to do was package all this ammo up and sell it by weight. Each package is sealed in plastic and packaged in either a .30 cal Plano or a .50 cal ammo can. There’s about a dozen calibers available, and for example, prices work out to about .19/round for 9mm, .21/round for .40, and .047/round for .22LR. This sale does not go live until midnight Thursday night/Friday morning. You can find more information here.

By the time this posts, the dinner will be done, the leftovers will be wrapped, some of us will have overdone it and be in bed already, and others will just be getting in line for the midnight openers. Hopefully you had a good Thanksgiving with family or friends (or both), and that the enjoyment outweighed the agitation. Hopefully you had things to be thankful for, even if it was just a questionable call that the ref called for your team or blatant pass interference that they missed. After all of this, please take a moment to think about those who couldn’t be with their families so that you could be with yours. Let’s Bring ‘Em Home has raised almost $50,000 so far, and 31 soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen will be home to see their families for the holidays, some from just a few hundred miles away, and some from literally the other side of the world.
