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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
