Brownell's Millionth Customer Gets Lucky

Gun parts vendor Brownells recently reached a significant milestone. Brownells’ computers officially logged the company’s one millionth customer since the company computerized in the early 1980s. Lucky #1,000,000 was Jason Wright. Brownells presented Wright with a personalized Bushmaster AR-15 in his caliber choice, .450 Bushmaster, at Brownell’s Montezuma, Iowa facility. In the photo, Brownells President Pete Brownell, left, and Company CEO Frank Brownell, right, flank the smiling Jason Wright, holding his new Bushmaster.

The Brownells IT Department had been keeping track as the company neared the one-million, unique customers mark. The tech guys passed the word to company President, Pete Brownell, the instant Mr. Wright’s order came in. “I really wanted to say thank you to our customers and show how much they mean to us. When I saw that Jason ordered AR-15 parts I knew right away what we had to do. A big thank you to Bushmaster for providing the gun, and Trinidad State Junior College for [personalizing] the gun for Jason.”

Jason himself was astonished, “I just placed an order, my first, and was so surprised when they called to say they were giving me a gun. I have another Bushmaster and love their ARs, so this is really great.”
