Thanks to you and thousands of other TTAG readers, TTAG’s growing exponentially. In the big-league, razzle-dazzle, live-on-the-razor’s edge, take-your-life-in-your-hands world of professional blogging, eyeballs is where it’s at. And we’re getting ’em. We’re proud to say that our traffic has doubled in the last month. We’re getting over 2000 unique views per day. We’re just welcomed our 100,000th visitor (since our mid-Feb launch). That’s no mean feat for a blog whose growth is strictly organic; we’re not paying for leads or engaging in any SEO shenanigans to get the word out. To show our gratitude, I’m pleased to announce our very first TTAG Contest. The winner will receive an almost brand-new (fired less than ten times) model 50359 Mossberg 500® HS410 Tactical Shotgun. The rules are as follows . . .
This is a wicked cool example of better living through engineering: a shotgun even your mother could love. Well, shoot. It’s a .410 shotgun that’s light, tight and stores out of sight. Better yet, there’s virtually no recoil. Designed for home defense. Flash suppressor. Pistol grip fore-end. You name it. This baby’s got the goods.
There are four simple rules.
- If you haven’t done so already, register as a TTAG reader
- If you haven’t done so already, follow us on Twitter (If you don’t have a Twitter account, get one. They’re free.)
- Tweet the following message: “I call shotgun! Go to http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/contest to win a Mossberg HS 410.”
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your TTAG and Twitter account names (we will not share that info with anyone ever for any reason)
Contest entries must be posted by June 30th. The winner will be selected entirely at random by an independent party (like it’s 1999) and announced on Friday, July 2nd, giving the lucky winner one more thing to celebrate on the 4th.
The winner will pay only the fee charged by their local FFL holder to receive shipment on the shotgun.
You must be at least 18 years of age to play. (We’ll be checking driver’s licenses, as will the FFL guy, so leave those fake IDs in your wallets.) You must be a resident of the USA; we’re not even gonna get involved in the complexities of shipping a gun internationally. Contest void where prohibited by law.
