Hey folks,

You may have noticed some new banner ads at the top of some of our pages lately. In our never-ending quest to keep the bills paid, we have entered affiliate relationships with Bass Pro, Backcountry.com, Sierra Trading Post, REI, West Marine and The Sportsman's Guide. We are looking for several others. We are trying to find companies that many of you shop with already. So it works like this: Whenever you click on one of these ads and make an online purchase, the site gets a small commission fee. You pay the same as you normally would, even on sale items, and you help us out a little bit at the same time. Many of you want to give something back, and this is a great way to do it without spending any more than you planned on spending anyway!

Most of these companies run special sales, and some of them are doing 4th of July sales right now, with some really good discounts! And they have really good gear.

Thanks for your continued patience as we find new ways to keep the lights on.

Best regards,
