  1. I want to clear the air because Black Rain Ordnance is getting a bad rap for something they had nothing to do with. There are postings on this site accusing them of making a donation to Wounded Warrior but not following through. Let me explain and I will also add I am not employed by BRO nor have any affiliation with BRO except I like and sell their products. Back in July 2012 I was approached at Norton Firearms Inc to provide a donation to a Wounded Warrior event in Wisconsin. Norton Firearms was excited to be part of what we thought, was a great event. So the staff of NFA dug deep and took up a collection to purchase a BRO AR-15 to be raffled at the event. We placed our order through RSR for a new BRO rifle. After receiving our BRO we were so impressed with the quality of the rifle we became a dealer. Now the problem, I took it upon myself to do what I thought was going to be cool and engrave the Wounded Warrior logo on the receiver. Just before the event we publicized the rifle along with the event only to be informed that we were in violation of copyright laws because we had not received permission to use the Wounded Warrior logo. The lower receiver had to be destroyed. At the same time Obama, during a debate, announced that he would go for an all out ban on what he called assault weapons. Now we all know that it has been near impossible to get any AR parts from that point on let alone a high quality product such as a BRO receiver. The raffle happened without a hitch and a very lucky winner was awarded a new BRO rifle to be delivered once the new receiver was received. We tried to work with the winner to give them a replacement AR they could use, shoot and abuse until the replacement receiver came in. I want to stress that BRO had nothing to do with the raffle it was 100% NFA. We just choose the BRO because we like their quality, as many of you do as well. We waited patiently until things calmed down and we are now in line to get the replacement receiver in this week. I want to stress that BRO had nothing to do with the raffle and even offered great advice to us going forward before we give away such a big ticket item. Get it in writing, as I write this post I have discovered that we are not entitled to any tax write off because the event that was billed as a Wounded Warrior event was actually not an official event and is not tax deductible. I spoke with the people at Wounded Warrior and I am in the process of making arrangements to donate to them directly in the future. The reason is that NFA pledged to give 2% of every transaction this year to WW and we intend to honor that commitment because we believe in their mission. I appologize publicly for any confusion that our good intentions may have created and accept full responsibilty. I will still continue to stand behind BRO and promote their products as should you.
