In 2015, Air Force veteran Tanner Maxson was complaining about the price and inconvenience of buying ammo while watching his wife switch the filter on their refrigerator. When he realized what she was doing, he asked her how she ever remembered to do such a trivial thing.
“It comes on subscription,” she told him.
“I thought, oh, I wished I’d been buying ammo on subscription, I would have had a stockpile stored up by now,” Maxson told Task & Purpose.
Soon after, he purchased the web domain ammosubscription.com, and began stockpiling a munitions inventory to sell to customers on a monthly basis. You can even mix and match your order if you want several different types of ammo.
“We invested a whole lot of money in inventory, and that came from working out contracts with some top-rated manufacturers,” he added. “We basically go in and get ammo private labeled for us.”
The site, which officially launched eight weeks ago, offers one, two, and three-month subscriptions for handgun and rifle ammo, packaged in 50-round boxes. And you place a large order, Ammo Subscription will split it into separate boxes so that each one is under the 66-pound maximum for limited quantity hazardous materials.
And it’s perfectly legal … in most states. For states like New York, New Jersey, Hawaii, and Massachusetts, you may not be able to purchase ammo, or you may have to valid provide firearms identification in order to do so.
“We love ammo and have a passion for training, defense, and preparedness,” according to the site. “We built this business to solve our own problem of getting high quality, inexpensive ammo on a regular basis with less effort.”
It sure would be nice to know what the hell is going on in Afghanistan. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently claimed the U.S. military had killed more than 1,000 Taliban fighters in little more than a week – because body counts worked so well in Vietnam – and President Donald Trump said during his speech commemorating the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks that the United States had gone on the offensive against the Taliban.
"The last four days, we have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before, and that will continue," Trump said, without elaborating further.
It's clear that Afghanistan is the new hotness, but the only people who aren't talking about how the strategic situation has changed since Trump abruptly ended peace talks with the Taliban via tweet are the U.S. military leaders in charge of actually fighting the war.
Nearly a decade after he allegedly murdered an unarmed Afghan civilian during a 2010 deployment, the case of Army Maj. Matthew Golsteyn is finally going to trial.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - The Taliban have sent a delegation to Russia to discuss prospects for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan following the collapse of talks with the United States this month, officials from the insurgent group said.
The move, days after President Donald Trump canceled a planned meeting with Taliban leaders at his Camp David retreat, came as the movement looks to bolster regional support, with visits also planned for China, Iran and Central Asian states.
We salute the foul-mouthed Navy vet remembered as 'the most inappropriate guy with the biggest heart'
Per his final demands, Joe Heller was laid in his casket Thursday in a T-shirt featuring the Disney dwarf Grumpy and the middle finger of his right hand extended. He also told his daughters to make sure and place a remote control fart machine in the coffin with him.
"My father always wanted the last laugh," daughter Monique Heller said.
The Essex volunteer firefighter and self-described local "dawg kecher" died on Sept. 8 at age 82, and the off-color obituary written by his youngest daughter has become a nationwide sensation — a lead item on cable news sites, a top story on The Courant's website and a post shared far and wide on social media.
Laced with bawdy humor, the irreverent but loving obit captured Heller's highly inappropriate nature and his golden heart, friends who filled the fire station for a celebration of his life on Thursday evening said.
A 19-year-old man who planned a July mass shooting at a West Lubbock hotel that was thwarted by his grandmother was upset that he was considered "defective" by the military when he was discharged for his mental illness, according to court records.
William Patrick Williams faces federal charges for reportedly lying on an application to buy the semiautomatic rifle he planned to use in a shooting, according to a federal indictment filed Aug. 14.
He is charged with a federal felony count of making a false material statement during the purchase of a firearm on July 11, a day before he planned to lure people out of a hotel and shoot them. The charge carries a punishment of up to five years in prison.
