Stunning Terry Leonard Farley 30BR for Sale

Long-time friend of the site David Apple let us know that he has decided to part with his “masterpiece” Terry Leonard-stocked 30BR. This gun represents the ultimate in the art of benchrest gunsmithing and it shoots as good as it looks.

2/21 UPDATE — The Rifle is sold to a well-known shooter with a prominent small-caliber website.

The rifle features a Leonard redwood and carbon fiber stock with fancy wood top-layer shell. The action is a Farley Right Bolt, Left Port, Right Eject with 30mm Farley rings. Sid Goodling smithed the rifle, chambering the Rock Creek 17-twist barrel in 30BR. David tells us the barrel only has 110 rounds through it, and “it’s a shooter”. Asking price for the rifle by itself is $3,225.00. A new NightForce scope is also available at extra cost.

NSSF Amicus Brief Explains Origins of Second Amendment

As we noted recently, the case of District of Columbia vs. Heller, is slated to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on March 18, 2008. This landmark case squarely presents the High Court with the question whether the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution affords an individual right to own firearms.

Along with many other interested organizations, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has filed a “friend of the court” Amicus Brief in the D.C. v. Heller case. The NSSF’s well-researched brief provides a fascinating history of the Second Amendment, explaining the factors which gave rise to its adoption. We recommend you read the brief and save it for future reference.

Brownell's Offers Financial Service Package for Gunsmiths & Small Businesses

Brownell’s recently launched a financial and insurance services package designed expressly for gunsmiths, gunshops, and small-to-medium-sized firearms businesses. The new program, “Brownells Business Advantage” (BBA), offers reduced-rate credit card processing, property/liability insurance, and discounted UPS shipping. With card processing rates as low as 1.38%, the BBA program could save a gunsmith hundreds of dollars a year. For example, we’ve found that most other credit card processsing services charge 2.2-2.5% per transaction. A 1% card processing fee reduction will save you $10 on every $1000.00 of customer spending.

Brownell’s business partner for credit card processing and Visa business cards is the First National Bank of Omaha. The Joseph Chiarello Company and AIG will provide property & liability insurance created specifically for companies in firearms-related businesses.

Membership in the Brownells Business Advantage has a $100 annual fee, but is being waived as a Shot Show Special until March 2nd, 2008.
