Introducing the Gray Fox Game Cart

Silas Dudley is at it again! As the President of Ammo-Up and the sister company that started it all, Bag-A-Nut, he has been innovating and inventing for years. Recently, he invented what he believes to be the best game cart on the market, which spawned a new company called Gray Fox. As a hunter and farmer himself, Silas has a lot of experience using game carts and saw all the pros and cons of the different brands out there. He set out to create a new and improved version of his own, and Gray Fox was born.

Gray Fox Game Cart Details


The Gray Fox game cart was designed for the outdoorsman and is your best option for hauling animals, tree stands, kayaks, canoes, corn, fertilizer, coolers, and other large objects. It was designed to be as durable and sturdy as possible and made with aluminum material that will last. The frame has solid sides which sit above the wheels to prevent animal legs from rubbing or getting stuck. There are sixteen strapping points for a secure hold. It can be pulled or pushed and the brush deflectors, low center of gravity, and split axle design make maneuvering on uneven ground a breeze.

The foldable handle makes it easy to store and travel with. The wheels are WheelEEZ flat free tires, so they won't go flat and they can float the cart for 15 minutes. This game cart was designed with special attention to detail and the best hardware and accessories including greaseable thrust bearings, a quiet, spring supported safety pin, heavy duty stainless ratchet straps, and stainless axle and pivot bolts.

Long Term Results of Australia's 1996 Gun Control Law

Long Term Results of Australia's 1996 Gun Control Law
       In 1996, Australia implemented the 'National Firearms Agreement', which prohibited the ownership, possession, sale, and importation of all automatic and semi-automatic weapons.  This was in response to a mass shooting in which 35 people were killed.  An article on the NRA's website explains, "More than 700,000 firearms were handed to the government, at the cost of over $700 million to taxpayers. All six states and eight territories were compelled to adopt these new gun laws."
       Recently, the current U.S. administration has discussed similar gun control laws for American citizens, touting Australia as a great example for what it could be like here.  However, looking deeper into the results of the NFA law, we can see the true results are quite alarming.
       Studies conducted by the International Journal of Criminal Justice Sciences, the University of Melbourne, and Florida State University’s College of Criminology and Criminal Justice have shown the rates of homicide, sucide, and accidental deaths by firearms have not significantly changed in Australia since 1996.
      James Walsh, executive officer at the Shooting Industry Foundation of Australia has stated, "All the 1996 reforms did was alienate every single law-abiding gun owner in Australia and waste taxpayer money.”  The problem in any country is criminals, not guns.  The banning of guns isn't going to stop someone who doesn't mind breaking the law, but it does punish those who want to protect their property and families.  The proof of this lies in a report from the Australian equivalent to the Library of Congress, which estimated 250,000 firearms were in criminal hands, as of 2013.
       A bizarre aspect of this NFA law is it stripped competitive shooters of their guns, and therefore, they could no longer participate in the competitions they used to.  Australia is known for people who enjoy outdoor sports, so it seems strange they would be punished.  The focus is misguided and should be on stopping criminals.
       It is our responsibility as law abiding Americans to be aware of the true results of these types of laws and stand up for our freedoms.  Please check out the NRA article below to learn more and stay informed.

Four Factors Influencing Rising Ammunition Prices

Four Factors Influencing Rising Ammunition Prices
         Our friends at Sniper Country shared their take on the major factors influencing never before seen sky high ammo prices.  In their article, "What is Really Driving Up Ammunition Costs?", they state there are four key factors to explain why the prices of ammo are at an all time high.  
        The first factor is inflation.  Inflation causes the prices of everything to rise including, gas, food, housing, and ammunition.  With the prices of raw materials and wages going up, you can bet the cost of everything else will rise too.  Supply and demand have a big role to play because so many people who have never owned a gun before are purchasing their first firearm as a result of the events of 2020. 
 
         This ties into the second factor which is gun ownership continues to increase. The current state of the world, with the pandemic, political division, and civil unrest have caused people to be motivated to protect themselves, their families, and their property.  Hunting and shooting also became a more popular hobby since it's something you can do away from crowds.  More people are taking marksmanship classes or practicing on their own, which all requires more ammunition.  
         Legislation is the third factor because we never know what future laws might be passed regarding gun control.  The Sniper Country article explains this best when they say, "American ammunition manufacturers have been operating at or near capacity for the past decade and are reluctant to expand production operations to meet demand in case any new legislation affects their business."  
        Finally, scalpers are contributing to the high prices as well.  When the pandemic began in early 2020, customers began hoarding ammunition.  Now, with the demand so high, people are reselling their excess at a much higher price to local stores, who then have to mark their prices up even higher.  Online scalpers are affecting prices as well because they are selling to desperate customers who can't find what they need anywhere else.
         All of these factors are causing the high ammo prices we're seeing today.  Shout out to Dylan at Sniper Country for sharing this information with us.  Please check out that article, which includes a helpful infographic with statistics and more information.
