    I've heard of Groupon, but never used them. They are bowing to anti-gun pressure:

    "In a statement emailed to FOX 4 the company said, "All scheduled and current gun-related deals featured on Groupon North America, including shooting ranges, concealed-and-carry and clay shooting, have been placed on hiatus while we review internal standards that shape the deal inventory we feature. The category is under review following recent consumer and merchant feedback."

    They call out clay shooting by name. I thought you all might like to see this.

    Folks, the times they are a changin'.

    I sent them a message advising that I felt "pressure" to cancel my membership and that I was advising corporate contacts and gun clubs of their position and urging they do the same.
