Rifle scopesSetting up a sporting goods website is much like setting up the website for other large businesses. The owner of the company must determine what items to offer, how to price those items and how to sell those items. People who want their business’ profits to increase should follow each of the steps below to get best results. Consumers are interested in more than products, and these steps bring a website to live.

A Prime Example:

There are many sites considered a depot for shooting equipment and reviews about the best rifle scopes for the money. The people who want to shop for this type of equipment can find everything they need all in one place. Customers do not want to move from site to site trying to find all the gear they need. Any website that companies design must contain every possible product that can be carried.

Sell More Shooting Accessories Than Weapons:

Selling weapons requires a large amount of government oversight. However, selling shooting accessories allows for enthusiasts to purchase every piece of equipment they need to go with their guns. The choice of accessories changes the way people shoot, and these accessories make it much easier for someone to do everything they want with their guns.

Firearms Training Information:

Training information for shooting off weapons is helpful to every person who visits the site. The people who enjoy shooting guns must have all the necessary information for every one of their weapons. Some weapons are easy to use, but other weapons require a special user’s manual that enhances the safety of the weapon.

When a website offers more than products, consumers shop the website simply out of respect for the website. Read More →

It can be very difficult to find good information about firearms and firearm accessories on the internet. Reviews present a particular sticking point, as there are very few ways to tell if the reviewer had any actual experience with the product… and purchasing a firearm certainly isn’t something you should take on hearsay! In order to rectify this state of affairs, we’ve put together a list of some of the best firearms sporting websites around. The sites here are full of reliable, knowledgeable people, and will form an excellent source of information for those who want the most out of their firearms experience.

1. Guns and Ammo:

As the homepage of the most popular firearms magazine worldwide, it should be no surprise that gunsandammo.com is an excellent place to go for all things firearm related. Their articles tend to be extremely well written, and address a variety of topics from reviews of cutting-edge firearm technology to historical retrospectives. Gunsandammo.com’s sister sites, rifleshootermag.com, handgunmags.com, and shotgunnews.com, also deserve mention as special sites catering to fans of their respective arms. About the only downside to Guns and Ammo is that some articles require a subscription, and that their focus is not entirely on sporting firearms.  You can check out a great video by these folks below.

2. The Truth About Guns

Thetruthaboutguns.com is an odd website: frankly, it’s poorly designed, oddly written, and a bit overly political for the tastes of many. What it lacks in these areas, however, it makes up for in volume: The Truth About Guns has published a huge number of reviews for hundreds and hundreds of firearms, all of which are community rated and at times hotly contested. Many of their reviewers are extremely experienced firearms experts, and the community aspect means that readers will get a very wide range of opinions. Simply put, if you want the everyman’s view of a specific firearm, thetruthaboutguns.com has you covered. Read More →
