Yes, very true. They are much worse than Ebay and have been for years. Should have been on your list a LONG time ago. I still sell P-Mags every once in awhile when someone else lists them. Got 1 acct banned so far.

I understand. Amazon sponsored a gun "buyback" here in Seattle and I was pretty mad about it.

I just bought a set of 1911 grips on Amazon.

So they don't sell gun stuff. Neither does my dry cleaner, but I'll still take my clothes there.

When I need a hem sewn or some shirts starched, I'll be sure and skip the gun store.

Same here. Until I start hearing that Amazon is directly lobbying for gun control I will take full advantage of that free Super Saver Shipping.

one data point does not make a trend.

I did a search on archive.org and it looks like the "assault weapon" part has been there since at least 12/2011, well over a year. Not sure if it was any earlier, but certainly not a recent addition. Apparently they haven't enforced it much until now considering just a little over a week ago I ordered some lower parts there (buffer detent & spring, hinge pin) and have ordered a few Magpul parts in the past.

You can use this link while shopping at Amazon and the Second Amendment Foundation gets some money.
Click and it takes you to the SAF link

Yeah, I'm not giving up Amazon... They save me way too much money.

String me up

Just about all I buy on Amazon is gun stuff
Link Posted: 2/14/2013 7:37:58 PM EDT
I just bought a Magpul ASAP and rail sling adapter. Heck, most of the gun accessories I own are from Amazon.

You mean that gun buy back that turned into a gun show?

What's a "Camouflaging Gun Container"?
Link Posted: 2/14/2013 7:45:54 PM EDT
Amazon has got more gun related stuff AVAILABLE for purchase than Sportsmans Guide right now.

Tons of reloading equipment ....and its Prime eligible.

And they offer bullets from other sites, they just don't sell them directly.

So , after further review, the OP's rant has been overturned....still 1st down.
Link Posted: 2/14/2013 7:48:50 PM EDT
I have bought a ton of gun stuff & knives from amazon. Yeah, they don't sell certain things, but then neither does Wal*Mart. Whoop-dee do.

And that gun buyback thing? I've said it in every single gun buyback thread. Gun buybacks do not infringe on anyone's 2nd amendment rights. They are entirely voluntary. Should you be able to dictate what someone does with their guns? No? Then quit being offended.

I just ordered some reloading items from amazon this past week.

Obama has threatened to use the weight of the Federal Government, including the IRS, NLRB, and CPSC, to name a few, to harass companies who take part in selling firearms books and accessories.
