There are three ways TTAG finds new voices to write for the site. The most common method: Farago sees something they’ve posted elsewhere and poaches them — that’s how I got here, at least. The second way in: gun guys stumble upon the site’s no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners editorial style and feel compelled to submit their own firearms-related material for publication. Behind door number three: the content contest. The search for talented writers continues with our third content contest, and this time the winner will receive a brand new SIG SAUER P320 modular handgun courtesy of the manufacturer. We’re running the competition using the same rules as previous versions . . .

All you need to do: write a post. It can be an editorial on firearms freedom (or those who would infringe upon it), a personal story about your introduction to guns, a defensive gun use, a Krafft-ian discourse on statistics, a review of a firearm we haven’t covered yet (guidelines here), whatever. As long as it’s gun-related you’re good to go.

There’s no minimum or maximum word count. No photos required, though they’re very much appreciated (please send as jpegs). Once you’ve put the finishing touches on your opus, email it to guntruth@me.com with “P320 CONTEST” in capital letters in the subject line. Submit your entry before midnight May 31.

We’ll publish the standout articles here for all to read, Dan will select the best of the bunch as the winner. SIG SAUER will send a box-fresh P320 directly to that winner’s FFL of choice. As always, we’ll ask the best writers to continue contributing to TTAG, regardless of who wins the gun. The contest starts…now!

[UPDATE] SIG Sauer has added a SECOND P320 to the pot, to be given out at random to those who make the cut and get their articles posted. So even if you aren’t the best writer in the world, if you give it a try you still might win!

  1. hmm. Firearms review?

    OK. I’m taking 2 handguns to the range Saturday anyhow. What caliber is this one in–9mm or 40?

  2. Will I be paid for the article I potentially create? Will I be paid for future articles?

    If not, that is a lot of work for 500-600 dollars of a product.

    Five years ago I think I would have jumped at this contest. These days I’m more worried about limiting my online presence so HR can’t track me in a career-limiting way.

  3. Man, Nick…I dunno. After the complaints about Firearms Concierge’s last post being “too long”, I’d be careful about that no maximum word count requirement. 🙂

    • FC’s posts would get complaints for being too long even if they were half the length because they’re rich in whining.

      • I wouldn’t go quite that far.

        FC could stand to dial back the venting a bit. Other than that, his stuff is pretty good.

  4. I would argue that the policy of “don’t call anybody on the other side names” is not “no holds barred”.

  5. Maybe someday one of the prizes will actually be on the California Roster….Thinking about that, though, I guess not; all of the prizes so far has been new model pistols–and California has banned new model pistols….

    But wait! Is there hope? Oral arguments on the microstamping requirement are scheduled for TODAY in US District Court in Fresno!….With a decision sometime (hopefully) in the next few months….Followed by a years’ long appeal to the Ninth Circuit….Now I’m depressed again.

    • “With a decision sometime (hopefully) in the next few months …”

      Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Wow, you really are an optimist. I guess you might be right if “next few months” means within 24 months.

    • I suspect that Nick will graciously volunteer to hold it for them until they move out of California. 😉

    • Impossible. No sensible Californian would enter a contest where he/she cannot take home the prize. either that, or you have Nick send it to a lucky relative in another state who is not as talented as you are. And who will owe you one.

  6. In order to provide maximum scare-worthiness to everyone here, I intend to enter.

    Would LOVE a Sig P320!!

  7. I’d love to enter.

    But I’m 20, so obviously I’m far too irresponsible to have handguns transferred to me from a FFL.

    And I live in California, where we have sensibly banned dangerous handguns such as this one.

    So I will have to bow out of this one.

    • As a sidenote, I’d like to give a huge shout-out to the SCOTUS for not taking up NRA v. ATF. 18-20 year olds simply love being disenfranchised from handgun ownership; we can barely keep our rifles on their leashes as it is.

    • As a 20 year old (21 in a month), do what I did last August and move out of there. Wyoming has welcomed and accepted me

      • Believe me, I am going to. I graduate with my BS in Mechanical Engineering in ’16. And as soon as I do, I am leaving for Texas.

  8. have submitted several entries for past contest through the ttag email and have never even got a single email to confirm whether or not my submission was even received

    • Did you e-mail guntruth (at) me.com ?

      I’ve sent links and other e-mails in the past, and while the response isn’t always right away, I’ve found I usually get a reply.

  9. RF,

    I know you have ulterior motives, but thank you anyway. I always enjoy the great articles submitted by your readers. You are planning to publish the best of them, right?

  10. I have to agree about the fingernails. First thing I noticed was the beautiful gun. Second thing I noticed was the disgusting nails. I can’t wait to read these entries. Should be good!

  11. Fantastic, thanks for the opportunity, I would really love to write for TTAG. Now I just need to think of something interesting to write about!

  12. First off Thank you TTAG you guys have helped me with the info and reviews when purchasing or keeping up to date on events. My next endeavor is to find a decent midrange priced long range rifle. Thank you for you’re dedication to the gun.

  13. I’ve submitted my article and will now be sleep deprived as I wait anxiously to find if my words can be shared with the masses and if I can finally own a Sig. I suppose my week old baby daughter might cause some of those sleepless nights too.
