    So I buy allot of parts weekly from Brownells. If i follow the link via this sight will NWF get a little kickback?
    Yearly on average 20k or so in parts..

    Thanks for thinking of us! We don't get a kickback from that particular banner, but most we do. We do get a kickback from Brownell's when someone makes a purchase from a link posted here :)

    http://www.brownells.com

    Same goes for just about any large retailer, such as Amazon, eBay, Dell, etc. You can always tell if it's an 'affiliate' if when you visit the link has some extra whatnot added to the end: http://www.brownells.com/?avad=avant&aid=41227&cm_mmc=affiliate-_-Itwine-_-Avantlink-_-Custom+Link

    Can you make a sticky post of all the affiliate links? So before I go shopping I can click the link

    Do you have a C&R FFL? other than now being useless in Oregon, Brownells still gives you dealer pricing if you send them a copy.

    @bolus

    I have a 01 FFL

    Yep brownells gives me a pretty decent discount on most items. Actually quite a few companies give a discount if I keep my ffl on file.

    @Joe Link I'm with @bolus and I would love to have a listing of shopping links. I use Amazon to support OFF and wouldn't mind using the other places that I probably don't know much about to support indirectly this site.

    Per the feedback in this thread I spent a bit of time developing our new affiliate link block on the sidebar, which replaced the third sidebar ad. There are only a few links there now but I'll be adding more as I get time. Below the links is an Amazon box which 'supposedly' rotates popular firearm-related items, but I haven't seen it change yet :D If it doesn't work as intended we can actually choose which items display there, so we might end up doing that (maybe make it a game here?). Below those items is a search box which you can use to search for anything on Amazon. We get about 5-7% of each purchase, whether it's the item you clicked on or something else, so long as you go through that box ;)

    If you guys have any other suggestions for places I should look into, please let me know. Also,
