Some people look forward to this time of year for the Black Friday discounts that nearly every retailer will surely offer. I have to admit; I don't look forward to the plethora of emails and advertisements notifying me of this or that company's Black Friday sale. To help you out, we reached out to some of our friends in the industry to see if they will offer any Black Friday discounts.
Gun Gear Sales on Black Friday-
As you might have guessed, many companies responded, and some included the terms of their sales. I've compiled all the information here in this post to help you get the best deals on gun-industry related gear.
Before I spill the beans on discounts, I just want to mention the most important aspect of this time of year, and that is Thanksgiving. You can skip this brief section. I won't judge you.
History and Purpose of Thanksgiving —
It may surprise some to know that Thanksgiving wasn't a national holiday in the United States until 1863, when President Lincoln instituted a day of thanksgiving by proclamation. Our country's Thanksgiving holiday gets traced back to William Bradford and the Mayflower settlers who landed in what would be called Plymouth, Massachusetts. However, days of thanksgivings of prayer go back way before the Pilgrims settled in America.
Offering thankfulness toward God goes back to the beginning of man. And special days of thanks have always been for reflecting on and thanking God for His loving kindness and blessings. The Pilgrims were not just having a special meal; they were thanking God for protecting and providing for them.
This Thanksgiving, whether you gather with family, friends or are by yourself, take time to reflect on the goodness of God. If you know Jesus as your personal savior, how could we not be thankful for the gift of salvation? On the other hand, if you haven't let the Holy Spirit of God convict you of your sin, and trusted in Jesus' work on the cross for the reconciling of the severed relationship between man and God, maybe this post is God asking you to invite Him into your heart. If you do, this I know Thanksgiving will take on a meaning for you it never has before.
