I probably answer the “What’s going on with silencers?” question a dozen or more times a day. Literally. With the Governor of Tennessee passing the “Tennessee Hearing Protection Act”, what does that mean? Can we all run out and make/carry suppressors now? The short answer is no. Well, not yet. Here’s what I mean by that… Continue reading

In an effort to better serve our customers, FSD is actually cutting back the hours we’re open to the public. This will allow us to place orders, take scheduled appointments, interview potential employees, and complete ATF-required paperwork.

Our new hours will take effect May 1, 2017 and will be:

Sunday: CLOSED
Monday: CLOSED
Tuesday: CLOSED
Wednesday: 11am-6pm
Thursday: 11am-6pm
Friday 11am-6pm
Saturday: 11am-4pm

Please make note of these new hours!

We’re excited for the changes we’re making in order to create a better buying experience for YOU!

The new clarification of opinion letter states

“…an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not re-configured for use as a shoulder stock – even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder. To the extent that the January 2015 Open Letter implied or has been construed to hold that incidental, sporadic, or situational “use” of an arm-brace (in its original approved configuration) equipped firearm from a firing position at or near the shoulder was sufficient to constitute “redesign,” such interpretations are incorrect and not consistent with ATF’s interpretation of the statute or the manner in which it has historically been enforced.”

That’s ANY brace. Sig, SB Tactical, Thordsen, you name it.

Ready to grab your Pistol Stabilizing Brace? Let us know at Fighting Sheep Dog! We’ve got an order we’re placing tomorrow (Wednesday) and need to know how many to grab!

At Fighting Sheep Dog, we see an awful lot of patriotic American customers who come in, excited about the possibility of the passage of the Hearing Protection Act.

And who can blame them? The mere thought of having suppressors removed from the NFA list brings a tear to the eye.

No more waiting.
No more $200 stamp.
Just buy a suppressor the same way you would a firearm through an FFL.

While we can certainly understand the draw of wanting to wait to purchase a suppressor until the government decides one way or the other whether or not to pass it, there are a few things we think you should consider: Continue reading

We’re on a mission this week. Maybe because of our extreme distaste for Lane Kiffin. Maybe we just aren’t Alabama fans. Maybe, we just love our home team. Either way, we’re going to do everything we can to keep Bama from winning.

Skill on the football field and a good coach are key to winning games. However, there IS something that UT fans can do help the team along. Here’s how:

Call it Black Magic. Call it Voodoo. Call it Simple Superstition.

But college football is RIPE with it. Players go through rituals each game to help their team win. So do fans.power-t

  • Some have figured out that if they don’t watch the first half of the game, the 2nd half is always more exciting.
  • Some fans claim that if they only watch the game on a certain television, that their team will win.
  • Some fans have a certain chair that they HAVE to sit in the entire game.

Either way, we’ve done some digging and found Bama’s biggest fears. We thought it’d be fun to spend the next 2.5 days exploiting them before the game:

Superstition: Bama fans refuse to sing the school’s fight song, “Rammer Jammer YellowHammer” until a Crimson Tide victory is assured. If another team sings it or if it’s sung too soon, it’s BAD LUCK.

So We Will: Sing the either/both fight song (UT or Bama) with each purchase from today until kickoff on Saturday. The only thing better than sending bad luck to Alabama…is sending good luck to Big Orange! All singers (regardless of which song, UT or Bama) will receive an additional 10% off your purchase from Thursday 10/13 to Saturday 10/15 (and yes, that includes birthday sale items if you’re on our email list).

Superstition: Bama fans pick ONE article of clothing to become their outfit of choice each time Bama plays. Of course, UT fans do the same.

So We Will: Wear your UT clothing of choice any (or every) day between Thursday and Saturday before the game (we don’t care how it smells). Ours is a UT hat that belonged to Rachel’s late uncle. It’s tattered and needs to be washed, but UT has won every game that she’s worn that hat for. So…every UT fan who comes in wearing orange gets a special discount that we aren’t publishing here. And don’t ask. If you aren’t wearing orange, you don’t get it.

Superstition: Halloween is Bama head coach Nick Saban’s birthday. Typically, Bama fans dress up as Saban for the holiday.

So We Will: There isn’t really a superstition involving Saban’s birthday. Or Lane Kiffin, for that matter. But we dislike Kiffin more than Saban, so you’ll get 10% off your Cerakote job by saying, “Lane Kiffin is a douche” when you drop off a firearm (or accessory) to be refinished.

So, whether you’re a die-hard UT fan (or just love a good discount), stop in today or tomorrow and take advantage of these great deals! They sure won’t last long!

Merry Christmas! WARNING – if you are not on our mailing list, you are about to miss ONE HELLUVA BIG SALE over the next 4 days.

Best thing about Christmas? You get free stuff. Stuff you want. (OK, socks too, but not in this case.)

This isn’t just a ‘sale’.

  • It’s getting you ready for whichever evil wins the election.
  • It’s clearing out inventory so we can stock up for “worst case election scenario”.
  • It’s because we don’t do special deals on patriotic holidays so we look for excuses to have them other times.

To join the mailing list, you only need an email (seriously, we are not the brother of the Bank of Nigeria and will never spam you).

Sign up in the lefthand side of this page and wait.
The first email arrives tomorrow.

Excited to “talk” to you tomorrow morning at 9am!

We just received the email equivalent to a finger wagging from the head of the TICS (Tennessee Instant Check System) unit of the TBI. It went out to ALL FFLs in Tennessee, essentially making sure that no one was telling customers that TICS would tell them why they were denied. They also included a step-by-step guide on what to do if/when a customer is denied. I thought we’d pass that information along, in case no one else had shared it before. Continue reading
