GRINNELL, Iowa (April 1, 2017) – Brownells, known for its incredible selection of firearms and firearm accessories, proudly announced today it has become the internet’s largest tactical falconry dealer. Brownells’ new Birds of Prey product line features hundreds of items dedicated to enabling private citizens, law enforcement officers and military personnel to engage in the ancient art of falconry for the purposes of self-defense, hunting and homeland protection.

The new line features well-trained tactical birds ranging in size from the sub-sub-compact Black-Legged Falconet up to the full-size Steller’s Sea Eagle – an offensive raptor designed for maritime operations.

For customers in arctic conditions, the Birds of Prey line offers Gyrfalcons in traditional Snowy Tundra camo as well as a special Ghostly White Limited Edition, exclusive to Brownells.

Also available are a full line of tactical bird accessories, gear and supplies.

Some of the notable, cutting edge tactical falconry products include:

  • Miniature Tactical Falcon Pants
  • Falcon Action Camera Mounts
  • PreyVision™ Falcon Spotting Scopes
  • Falcon Handler First Aid & Suture Kits
  • Tactical Falcon Treats
  • Widening Gyre® Tactical Falcon Signal Whistles
  • TalonHone® File & Pedicure Kit
  • Falcon Night Hunter Owl Conversion Kit

“Housing the falcons has been the biggest challenge for us,” said Chad Martin, Brownells COO. “Well trained as they may be, we’ve noticed they tend to get nervous around lift trucks.”

Some of the newest tactical falconry products in the line come from the innovative company Critical OperRaptor Dynamics. Miniature Adhesive Falcon OperRaptor Beards are available in several colors and sizes and are guaranteed to resist bloodstains and not jettison during flight.

Also from Critical OperRaptor Dynamicsis a large assortment of Picatinny-Compatible Falcon Perch Rails to let the tactical falconry practitioner park his bird on his favorite AR-15 handguard, scope rail or ballistic helmet interface.

Yes, this an April Fools joke. No falcons were harmed in this ridiculous hijinks. Actually, we’ve never even seen a real falcon.

  1. “Miniature Adhesive Falcon OperRaptor Beards are available in several colors and sizes and are guaranteed to resist bloodstains and not jettison during flight.”

    I LOL’d at that!

  2. I got my falconry license in 1975. My first bird was a male kestrel. High maintenance little thing.

  3. I want a fully automatic assault raptor. But I hear they’re quiet. Are they suppressed? Do I need a Class 3 License?

  4. A common mistake among tactical falconry noobs is not testing their birds’ ability to handle camo. Getting a gauntlet with the wrong pattern can result in a bird’s missing the wrist and landing on the falconer’s head and ripping half his scalp off.

  5. As someone who’s made a “falconry for self-defense” joke, I really enjoyed this post.

  6. Any teenager who went hunting for chicks in the 60’s while driving a Falcon was a dead duck.

  7. At least there’s no mention of Blue Falconry.

    Damn evil (D) have been doin the me-too with guns while they’re trying to ban them; we’re more ‘for blacks’ than Republicans so we sick PP on them with tax dollars. . .


    In two years you’ll be raiding a nest yourself to train up a hand-fed drone snatcher.
