The Gundies is the Firearm Industry's voter choice awards spotlighting top creators in the community. The Gundies is a platform for the community to show their support for their favorite creator and a place where up and coming talent can be seen by hundreds of thousands with our hope being to grow the next generation of firearm community content creators.
What started in 2020 based on an episode from the TV show 'The Office' and their 'Dundie Awards' as a friendly competition to bring the community together, has expanded into a powerful message of the 2A community's strength. We pride ourselves that the Gundies continue to reach through every niche within our community while promoting the message of responsible firearm ownership through the convergence of creators from all walks of life.
