Online shopping has plenty of benefits. Not only is it fast and convenient, but no one gives you weird looks if you do it in your underwear. (I don’t recommend strolling into the local sporting goods store in nothing but your Fruit of the Looms.)
We’ve all been spoiled by the ease of online shopping, but no one has spoiled us more than Amazon. Not only do they blow the competition away with their vast selection of products, but they also have Amazon Prime. With Prime’s super fast two-day shipping, we no longer have to be patient. Instead, we get almost instant gratification.
There’s only one problem with Amazon. Although they offer what seems like a vast sea of merchandise to the average internet shopper, their inventory is seriously lacking in the firearms department. Sure you can buy high-quality optics, every target known to mankind, and plenty of other cool accessories, but when it comes to guns and ammo, Amazon leaves you high and dry.
Meanwhile, Brownells has a fabulous selection of guns and ammo (as well as optics, targets, and other shooting gear). If you want to shop for firearms in your underwear, Brownells is the place to go.And now, you can even enjoy the (almost) instant gratification of free two-day shipping with Brownells Edge program.

What is Brownells Edge?
Brownells Edge program is an Amazon Prime-style shipping program. For only $50 per year, Edge members enjoy free two-day shipping on most purchases. Other benefits of the program include free return shipping and discounts on overnight delivery.
Brownells also waives their normal $10 FFL processing fee for firearms purchases for Edge members. They also give embers exclusive offers and discounts. Edge members gain access to special sales and promotions before the general public. This can be a major advantage when it comes to some of Brownells high-demand or limited-supply products.
Should I Become an Edge Member?
That’s a fantastic question. I will confidently answer with a loud, resounding….
If you regularly order guns and gear from Brownells, the free shipping perk will more than pay for the cost of membership over the course of a few months.
Also, if you’re the type of shopper who likes to wait until the last minute to order something, the two-day shipping (and discounted overnight shipping) could be a lifesaver.
If you’ve ever found yourself without ample ammunition the week before deer season opens, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
However, if you already have plenty of ammunition in your stockpile and more than enough firearms in your gun safe, a Brownells membership might not be worth the cost.
Get a Bigger Discount
The Brownells Edge program is definitely designed for frequent, impatient shoppers, especially those who regularly buy guns and ammo. If that sounds like you, what are you waiting for? Brownells Edge is definitely for you.
