Support the Right to Arm Bears!

10,000 unique NFTs, starting at Ξ0.0223. This first NFT avatar project specific to shooting enthusiasts.

Welcome to the Armed Bears

Armed Bears is the very first NFT avatar project that represent the right to bear arms. Given the “alpha” nature of this project, they should have long-term collector value for firearm enthusiasts, FPS gamers, and NFT collectors!

These bears will live for eternity as 10,000 unique NFT avatars as ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.

Using an Armed Bear as a profile pic on popular social media platforms will be a statement for shooters of all types.

The Bears

We’ve created enough distinct features to ensure that each bear is unique with varying levels of rarity.

There will be male and female bears, grizzly bears, black bears, polar bears, and even camo bears. Some have baseball caps, some have gray hair, some have ponytails.

There are bears with baggy eyes, shooting glasses, laser eyes, and eyeliner. There are bears sporting tank tops, flannels, and tattoos. The list goes on.

Then we arm the bears. There are bears carrying AR-15s, AK-47s, Glock 9mms, hunting rifles, revolvers, shotguns, flintlocks, and more.

The Project

Armed Bears are the first NFTs designed specifically for shooting enthusiasts and Second Amendment supporters. Many people are buying up Cryptopunks, Bored Apes, and other NFT avatars to use as their social media profile pics. These NFTs have become their owners’ versions of a “digital flex.” Armed Bears can be used for the same purpose – but also as a statement!

There are few segments of society more passionate than gun owners. Now anyone in this very large market will have an opportunity to expand their firearm collection to something entirely different – digital assets that serve as both a collectible and a reflection of their hobby. Much like other NFTs serving as profile pics, Armed Bears can be used as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media profile images for their owners.

For NFT collectors, this is also an opportunity to get in on the first endeavor of this kind.

Trail Map

The Armed Bears NFT project is following this bear trail:

September 22, 2021 – It’s the first day of Fall and the artwork is complete. Bears are busy fattening up for winter hibernation, so you will see them around social media as they roam here and there in search of food.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Armed Bears?

Most of today’s animal-themed NFT project just don’t make. Why a random panda or penguin collection?

You know what animal NFT would make sense? Armed bears!

The connection here is obvious, a play off the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Who is this project for?

Unlike many other NFT projects that just throw up 10,000 digital images as art, Armed Bears' audience is very targeted. They are a reflection for community - NFT and firearm enthusiasts.

There are millions of gun owners and countless gun collectors. Sooner or later these people are going to look to NFTs that reflect their passion, and when they do, they will look for original projects. They’ll look to Armed Bears. NFT collectors and shooters alike can benefit from buying into the project early.

How much will the bears cost?

Armed Bears will launch with an initial mint of 0.0223 ETH. This is “caliber pricing,” meaning the bears will be priced in one of the most popular shooting calibers of all - the .223 round.

All Armed Bears will be minted and sold on our website and then loaded to OpenSea for the secondary market.

ArmedBears will utilize the Polygon Network for MetaMask to cut gas fees by 99%. Visit this article on how to add a Polygon wallet to your MetaMask account.

Do you have future plans for Armed Bears?

Future plans depend entirely on how robust the community becomes. These bears are ERC-721 tokens recorded on the Ethereum blockchain, so anything is possible.

There are about 121 firearms for every 100 citizens in the United States. According to the National Firearm Industry Trade Association, there were an estimated 8.4 million new gun owners in 2020. The total U.S. economic impact of commercial arms and ammunition is over $63 billion. The shooting industry is nothing short of gigantic.

Maybe we’ll have future drops of “digital” ammo, ERC-20 tokens like ammo in online games. Maybe we’d drop pots of honey.

Maybe we’ll build an exclusive digital shooting range for token holders. Maybe we’ll host firearms safety, education, and training events on Decentraland.

Blockchain isn’t going anywhere, NFTs aren’t going anywhere, and firearm enthusiasts certainly aren’t going anywhere. Who knows what the future might hold for Armed Bears. First things first – the minting.
