Minutes ago, at roughly 4pm CST, GunsSaveLife.com had its 2 millionth unique visitor this year.

GunsSaveLife.com, the internet face of Guns Save Life the organization, went up last fall in our new format. Elbowing our way into the crowded gun blog world wasn’t easy, especially as we were rank amateurs, but we worked hard and persevered.
Then came a setback as our site was taken down by our previous Internet hosting company because of our slightly political flavor.
The good news was we were already laying the groundwork to migrate to a bigger, faster server because of some of the big stories we had broke in our first couple of months were bogging down that initial server. When Hosting A to Z abruptly pulled us down, it merely accelerated our migration.
Today, we passed our two millionth unique visitor with our current hosting company, delivering our content to well over five million sets of eyeballs this year.
Not bad for a small, all-volunteer grassroots civil rights organization in the middle of flyover country.
Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in making this happen, including most notably, our visitors!
