[Glocktober] Built for Competition Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Julian G., right here in Houston, Texas! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. Week two of Glocktober is here, and we’re changing the game with this giveaway. Last week, we presented our take on an EDC build. Compact, accurate, and faithfully reliable, our EDC pistol was built entirely around the needs of personal protection. This week, we wanted to focus on something new—something distant from the stresses of self-defense. We wanted to bring our attention to the ‘sport’ function of shooting sports. With that in mind, this week’s giveaway (if you haven’t already gathered from the title) is our “Built for Competition” Glock pistol....[ Read More ]

Win This Rifle Build! Lightweight AR15 Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Jennifer B. in Oklahoma! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. You ever hear the phrase “ounces are pounds”? If you know the history of the AR15 and its offspring, you know that weight is everything. It started in Vietnam, where the M16 made its debut as a replacement to the 10lb+ M14. Trading a wood stock for aluminum and polymer, the M16 weighed 2.5lbs less than the previously-issued battle rifle, and the smaller cartridges meant soldiers could carry more ammunition outside the wire. After the war, the Military’s demand for smaller, lighter equipment continued, leading to the development of the M4, the M249, and countless other modern rifl...[ Read More ]

Reaching Out for Range Day

In continuing the message of National Shooting Sports Month, we wanted to write a special article to cover the perspective of a novice marksman. This article is a partial follow-up to our previous article, which detailed proper etiquette when taking someone to their first range trip. Everyone can remember their first time firing a gun, whether it’s summer camp, a hunt with dad, or a casual outing with colleagues. Most Primary Arms employees spend plenty of time at the range, whether that means carbine courses, competitions, or punching holes in paper. Of course, not everyone is an experienced marksman. Last week, we had a special first range trip with Dea, our HR Generalist. Dea joined Primary Arms with no prior firearms experience, but h...[ Read More ]
