I know this might be an odd/wrong place to ask this but can someone see if they can pull up that site?

It's been down for me for a day and was wondering if there's something wrong with my end, somehow.
Anyway, thanks.

It's been down for me for a day (maybe two?) also. Firefox tells me it has been reported as an "attack page" for some kind of malware. I am guessing that the site operator has it down to try to fix whatever it got infected with.

Huh, thanks. I was online yesterday right when Obama was speaking live. I was reading/responding to a new thread where the poster was saying he had/was hearing (via scanner) of a shooting in Portland involving at least seven victims.. obviously bogus. very odd/ coincidental.. and then it went down

I have been wondering if it was attacked by someone politically motivated.

Is that (I don't do facebook) responsive or just a shell?

Seems like they have it under control:
Thank you everyone for the contact and concern with the NorthwestFirearms.com website. We've been working very hard for the past 48 hours to get it back up and running. We should be back up by tonight, but we're hoping for much sooner!

Also appreciated are the folks who have been contacting me directly to make sure I'm alright, that I haven't been kidnapped, arrested, gitmo'd, etc. Your concern is heartwarming :)

The problems with the 'attack site' crap was an advertiser that got red-listed, it affected a bunch of tech sites as well.

Whenever you have a problem with any site and want to know if it's down for others, go to http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ and enter the site URL. That will give you your answer. Speculating on whether a site is hacked or politics are involved rarely leads to any useful information.

Closed.
