First let me start by saying that this site is a hobby by a couple of programmers and I. We are making 0 money off of it and are paying for the servers/hosting/ etc.. entirely out of our own pocket. There is not a single ad or even a donate button on the site. It is a free tool for other gun enthusiast.

About 2 years ago I wanted to create a way to quickly find the cheapest price on any gun I wanted. I was lucky enough to find some extremely talented programmers to help me out here locally. So after a long time testing and grabbing some good deals for ourselves , we are ready to release it to everyone right in time for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. We hope you guys enjoy it, its been fun!

The url is gunwatcher.com the site is COMPLETELY FREE.

how it works: You type in the gun you want and it searches dozen's of gun stores, AS WELL as auctions ending with 6 hours, or auctions with a Buy it Now. It returns these results in a table and you can quickly click a link to go straight to the page. you can also use the "watch this gun" feature. This allows you to save that model to your "watch list" and everytime you login you can quickly check the current cheapest price of all of your saved guns. It will let you know if the price has raised or lowered since the last time you checked.

I have put more hours than i can count into this project along with a few other programmers. We love any feedback good or bad, just use the contact us link on the page. If you guys like the website please tell your friends, family, social media, forums, etc.. We appreciate any help we can get! Hope you guys enjoy the site, and go save yourself some money!

Nice site, remember us when you get rich.

thanks! We honestly have no intention of making a lot of money because we dont really see much of a way to from it. I refuse to charge stores to appear on it. I also refuse to plaster the site with ads. If the server cost go up we may eventually try to break even but there really isn't even much money in ads anymore. After that you have to take away the cost of renting multiple servers, domain name, bandwidth charges, email client hosting, etc...

Clean, simple, effective, and automatically sorted by price!! I hate browsing online and having prices jump around as you scroll. Not entirely sure why, but it absolutely irks me.
You, sir, (and your friends) kick much ass.

Once you start getting some traffic, put a couple ad banners on your site and make some money. Maybe in the future you'll get an offer on your site.

Great work man. Sticky requested.
