ARM USA will be closed in celebration of Independence Day from July 4th thru the 8th. We will reopen Tuesday, July 9th at 10 A.M.

  Happy Belated 4th of July
  We hope everyone had a safe and fun-filled 4th. Let's take this opportunity to remember all those who have served and those who continue to serve in the armed forces, and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives, in support of freedom.

Because of those brave souls, I'm able to send this newsletter, and speak my mind. I can forward information that I think would be of interest to you. And you are entitled to tell me to take a hike.

I can own my firearms and go shooting (albeit primarily in designated areas). You are free to own or not to own any firearms. That is your choice. I CHOOSE to own them. I choose to fight and not let anyone take them away from me. Thanks to servicemen and women, I have the freedom to make that choice.

  July 9th is National Firearm Purchase Day
The International Action Network on Small Arms has proclaimed July 9th International Small Arms Destruction Day. "Small Arms" means yours and my guns! In response, National Firearm Purchase Day was born. NFPD was proposed last year by FReepers at We took the ball and ran with it, selling an unprecedented number of guns last year. The UN is continuing their mission of destroying thousands of firearms. See for details.
  This year, we will carry on National Firearm Purchase Day at ARM USA. From Tuesday thru Saturday, July 9th thru 13th, stop into ARM USA and show your support by buying a gun. You'll receive a free ARM USA t-shirt with each firearm purchased. We will be open EARLY, at 10 A.M. so stop in early for best selection.
  Storewide Sale and Clearance
  It's also a great time for our semi-annual storewide sale and clearance. Time to move out existing stock and get new exciting products in. Just about everything in the store is on sale through July 13th. If you're on our postal mailing list, you should receive a postcard in the mail today or tomorrow.

If we don't have your mailing address, stop in and enter our monthly drawing. Doing so will ensure that you receive future postcards and mailings with offers exclusive to those on our list. As with your email address, your mailing address will never be disclosed to third parties and won't be sold!

  New Gun-totin' Addition to the Family
We were recently blessed with our first grandbaby. Jakob Abramson was born at 11:11 a.m. June 24th, and weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz., 19 inches long. He seems to change each time we see him.
A proud new Grandpa, Frank holds his Grandson, Jakob. And that little Beretta he's holding? No, we didn't stage this picture at all. He came out armed. (Probably why they had to deliver him by C-section.) Good thing for Mom he wasn't packin' an AR in there!

He's been a little jaundiced but he's all better now! When do you think we can take him to the range?

  Did you know?

At ARM USA, we don't JUST sell 50 calibers. Although we have 8 different 50 caliber rifles IN STOCK for you to touch and feel, we sell many other brands and types of firearms, as well as all the accessories to go along with them.

From Accuracy International to Wilson Combat, and all manufacturers in between, we sell virtually every firearm manufacturer's product you could ask for. Kimber, Heckler & Koch, Glock, Sig Sauer, Springfield, Remington, Sako, Winchester, Marlin, Beretta, Taurus, North American Arms, Ruger and more.

For law enforcement, we offer Colt, Bushmaster, Eagle Arms, DPMS, Rock River Arms, H&K and other "assault weapons" for duty use, as well as large capacity magazines, all at reduced law enforcement pricing.

And high quality optics? We've got them too. We stock US Optics, Schmidt & Bender, Zeiss, Hensoldt, Steiner Binoculars, Leupold, Nikon and Bushnell spotting scopes. We also carry many brands of red dot and heads up sights, such as Eotech, Trijicon, Aimpoint, Colt, just to name a few.

For firearm storage, we offer American Security safes. We sell reloading presses, equipment, and supplies, including new Ramshot and Vihta Vuori powders. We sell a wide range of cleaning supplies, shooting supplies, tactical gear, books and videos, and ammunition.

We're actually pretty diversified here at ARM USA. If you're looking for something in particular, please drop us a line. In all likelihood, we have what you're looking for.

  Calling ALL Voters!
  November elections are quickly approaching. We need ALL freedom-loving gun owners to get out and vote. Spread the word to friends and family. We have been losing California for a long, long time now and we need to take her back. Without the conservative Christian vote, this state is doomed. It is pathetic that there are so many gun owners that do not vote.

At ARM USA, we're doing our best to fight. Whether it's talking to folks in the store or sending out email alerts on legislation, we are doing our best to keep California from spiraling out of control. It's a pretty tough task, considering that celebrities in Hollywood are better known by our school-children than are the founding fathers.

We need your help, and we need it fast. If you know smeone who is not registered to VOTE, send them in to pick up a Voter registration card at ARM USA, or pick one up for them. We need to do this NOW and not wait til it's too close to election time. By then it will be too late.

Remember, you can use the NRA's Write Your Reps tool to locate phone numbers and addresses of those responsible for legislation. These public officials must answer to US! We pay taxes so they can collect a paycheck! Let's make sure they know who pays the bills!

Bill Simon for Governor
  We support Bill Simon for Calfornia Governor. We have been in touch with a liaison from his office and should soon have some election materials at the store (bumper stickers and the like). We have voter registration materials in the store if you need to register or re-register (if you have moved).
Constitution and Bill of Rights

I think we should take time to review the Constitution of the United States, along with the Bill of Rights, periodically so we can keep in touch with our heritage. We need to remember the principles our country was founded on.

Declaration of Independence
The Constitution
The Bill of Rights

Racial profiling

To ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us - airport screeners will not be allowed to profile people. They will continue random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal Of Honor winning former Governors.
