Our First P320 Winner

630x420xP1050768-900x600.jpg.pagespeed.ic.z3yH1OIVNN

As we’ve mentioned, SIG SAUER was generous to allow us to give away not one, but two P320 pistols during this latest, most epic content contest. And as Nick announced earlier, in addition to awarding one for the best article submitted, we’re giving the second gun away via a drawing of the names of everyone who’s submitted an entry. Well yesterday, in a super-secret location, we assembled the names of all of the People of the Gun who’d metaphorically put pen to paper, dropped them into an old rusty ammo can and plucked the name of Dave Keller from the inky blackness. So congrats, Dave. Your FFL of choice will soon be receiving a little package with your name on it. And to the rest of you, stay tuned because we’ll announce the other winner on Friday.

    Rather be lucky than good, right?

    Congratulations on being lucky!

      But next, we get to see who’s good.

    Is it too soon to think about the next contest? I’m thinking “funny hats.” 😉

      Don’t be a cheapskate, no one wants funny hats.

  4. avatar Rokurota says:

    Congratulations, Dave. Review!

  5. avatar BDub says:

    Congratulations, Dave.

    Congrats to the winner!

  7. avatar Pantera Vazquez says:

    Luck is good. Congrats. Bang bang.

  8. avatar Wendy says:

    Congrats!

  9. avatar FirearmConcierge says:

    Can we get a link to see what he actually wrote that warranted the win? Not being sarcastic, I’d like to see it.

    1. avatar Alex says:

      This is his wife’s entry – http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/06/daniel-zimmerman/p320-entry-gun/

      Not sure if he actually entered. Either way this was just the random drawing for the second p320. The merited winner is on Friday.

      1. avatar Dave Keller says:

        We both wrote articles actually. I don’t think her article won, I got the random draw which is pretty cool!

        1. avatar surlycmd says:

          Congratulations!!! Enjoy and let us know how you like it.

        2. avatar Toby in KS says:

          Too bad. I enjoyed reading her article. 🙂

  10. avatar Alex says:

    Congrats Dave, although after rereading the article, it looks like we should be congratulating your wife! Enjoy!

    1. avatar Dave Keller says:

      I got the random draw but I think she should win too! I thought her article was pretty funny but I am of course bias.

  11. avatar Dave Keller says:

    Thanks guys! I never win anything! This is so awesome! I wrote an article but I don’t think it was very good so I don’t believe it got published. I won the random draw which is pretty rad!

    When I got the email I thought it wasn’t real. I’m glad it was! This is so cool! I almost didn’t enter because I thought I’d probably not win. Well, I’ll always enter contests now! So awesome! Thanks so much Dan & team for making this contest possible!

    1. avatar Sean N says:

      Dave, the reason folks are asking for a link to your article, is because Nick said you had to make the cut and get posted in order to qualify for the drawing. If your article wasn’t posted, you weren’t eligible.

      1. avatar Dave Keller says:

        There are two guns to my knowledge being given away. One for the best article & one that is random for all people who entered the contest, regardless of article being published. I didn’t win best article, I won random draw.

      2. avatar Matt in FL says:

        We also haven’t finished posting all of them that will be, either.

        1. avatar Sean N says:

          Thanks, Matt.

          Dave, Nick actually clarified that they had to be posted, not just entered, that’s why people were wondering.

  12. avatar Ralph says:

    The last time I had my name pulled out of a hat, I won a light-up plastic Santa at a Christmas party. Dave, I think you did a lot better!

    1. avatar Tietonian says:

      The last time my name was drawn, I got to hit the security administrator of my college in the face with a pie. Winning a gun, however, is still more fun. Good shooting Dave!

    2. avatar Toby in KS says:

      The last time my name was drawn was last month. I got to fire the 75mm cannon at the city river festival while the fireworks were going off!

      As Dave said above, it was pretty rad!

      A free P320 might have been better, though. Congrats Dave!

  13. avatar Vic says:

    I actually had fun reading the article!

    Have a good time with the gun, Ellie can fire it, Dave gets to clean it up and post to Instagram, everybody wins!

  14. avatar Danny Griffin says:

    Dave? Didn’t Ellie win it? She wrote the piece.

    1. avatar Dave Keller says:

      Naw, I won the random draw. I wrote an article as well but I won the name out of the hat SIG P320.

      1. avatar Danny Griffin says:

        I thought yours didn’t get published. Well, either way, congratulations! 🙂

  15. avatar Alpo says:

    Congrats Dave!

  16. avatar surlycmd says:

    I hope the super-secret location is a great bar just down the road from a range.

  17. avatar Kevin says:

    Nice job Dave. Congrats.

  18. avatar Sean N says:

    So, Dave.. I can’t find your article on the site.. Care to give us a link?

  19. avatar Dan Zimmerman says:

    Dave won the drawing fair and square. Ellie’s post wasn’t involved at all. In fact, I wasn’t aware of the relationship until someone pointed it out, above.

    1. avatar Dave Keller says:

      Thanks Dan! This is so awesome!

    2. avatar SpeleoFool says:

      Well, congrats Dave. But you should still probably let Ellie shoot your P320. 😉

  20. avatar SteveInCO says:

    OK, so if Dave won the drawing, but the link someone posted was to a different article (albeit by his wife), can we have a link to Dave’s article?

  21. avatar Samson says:

    Congrats man I have never entered a contest I’ve been so interested in, checking every day to see if a winner was posted etc.

    Congrats again.

  22. avatar SOG says:

    How many people are going to ask for a link? Lol. It didn’t get posted …yet?
    Congrats Dave. Jealous.

  23. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Congrats Dave!

  24. avatar Bryan says:

    How, many are left to be published? I haven’t seen mine yet… not a good sign I guess. Lol.
