Amelia’s Soapbox

Hello, to all of the Sandy Soapbox Readers. My name is Amelia Pullman and Sandy has invited me to take over the Soapbox for this month. I know we will all miss his update for this month, but he will be back next month, I can assure you of that. If you find yourself missing him too much, you can come to Dallas and see him (and the rest of our team) at the NRA Annual Exhibitor show from May 4th-May 6th. We would love to see you all there, and I can speak for Sandy on this, he would love to see you as well.

As for myself, some of you may know me, as for others this may be an introduction of sorts. I am the Marketing Manager here at North American Arms, and my staff includes myself. I am a marketing team of one, so I’ll put this out here now, if you have any news, ideas, comments, questions, concerns, etc. I would be happy to personally take care of them or listen to what you have to say. You can email me directly at I would love to hear from you.

I have worked for Sandy at NAA since April of 2017, making this my one-year mark. Most of you have been around for much longer than that, I know. I have loved working for this company and hope to stay here for many years. I was born and raised in Utah, and although I have lived in several other places, I always seem to come back to beautiful Utah. I graduated from Utah Valley University in Communication and am currently working on a graduate program. The most common question I am asked from all of you is which of our firearms is my favorite and I would have to say The Sherriff. I actually own my own Sherriff. I love the classic old-timey look of this gun and I have the engraved boot grips to match.

A final fun fact about myself, I won’t be Amelia Pullman for much longer. I’ll be Amelia Thorn in just one month. I am getting married this coming June and I couldn’t be happier. I am registered on if anyone wants to speak now or forever hold their peace. I’m kidding, I’m kidding.

Once again, if you have any comments, ideas, things you want to see, or thoughts for me, I would love to hear them. Maybe if you would like to see a NAA gun giveaway, or more companies spotlights, etc. I appreciate this community that you have all built here at North American Arms. I think it’s something that most companies today are missing, and don’t have the opportunity of having. You all add to the legacy that is North American Arms. I hope to see you all this week in Dallas. Please stop by our booth # and say hello. I would love to meet you or see you again for anyone that I had the pleasure of meeting at NRA last year.

Until then,




  1. Hello Amelia,

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage.
    When can we expect to see the Ranger 2 in our local gun stores?
    This is harder to come by then a Sig P365.


    1. Thank you for the congratulations, John. We have started regular production on the Ranger II. We have many orders to fill, but we are doing our very best to do so. It’s a positive problem that we are seeming to have with this firearm! Your local dealer should be able to order one for you, but I personally cannot give you a firm time estimate.

  2. Congratulations on “tying the knot”. I’ve never understood that expression, as it is (usually) a very pleasant knot, not the noose that’s implied! I’m sure your fella is fantastic, and knows you have hundreds (thousands?) of well-armed friends to look after you….. 🙂

    BTW, you have a beautiful smile.

    I could mention a .22LR Guardian, but I won’t, since lots of folks have already done so somewhere on the forum….

    1. Tim, thank you for your congratulations, and you’re right, I’ll let my well armed friends know if anything goes amiss. I’ll pass on your thoughts of a .22LR Guardian to our head engineer. Thank you for the thought!
