    Woo-hoo!!! That is all. Kneel before Zod.

          grrrrrreaat!

    2. avatar Danman says:

      Would I still win even if my comment was about how awful this website runs? The Video ads often get in the way of the real video. Do I win?

      1. avatar Mike C says:

        You’re right – as good as this site is, the video ads are a real pain in the ass.

        1. avatar Roymond says:

          Ads?

          Your computer is your gun — here’s some ammo:

          https://adblockplus.org/

      2. avatar Cory says:

        I often use handydandy addons to block stuff like that. You should try it!

        1. avatar Gran says:

          Adblock plus

        2. avatar Drew A says:

          AdBlock+ and Ghostery

        3. avatar Grant S. says:

          I have AdblockPlus and this site still runs slower than molasses. It’s not just the ads.

      3. avatar Bryan says:

        Glad to hear it’s not just me. I thought it was just my slow system.

        1. avatar Andrew says:

          Ever check the counter to see just how many ads are being blocked? I’ve seen as many as 35 per page on some sites.

        2. avatar franklin the turtle says:

          i have adblocker, had to go to firefox for this website to not crash and now its all i use……waaaay better then explorer

    3. avatar barnbwt says:

      There is no Zod; only Zule. Also, the ads on the site suck, also…

    4. avatar Brandon says:

      Kneel before zod!

    5. avatar J E says:

      Need new Sig…

    6. avatar Cliff H says:

      I suspect that this will have little effect in the long run, but…

      I sure hope this contest isn’t won by someone who posts numerous one or two word comments just to run out the clock. That would be pathetic.

    7. avatar 80 D says:

      There can be only one (millionth commenter).

  2. avatar Jeromy Buschman says:

    I win?!!!!

    1. avatar silverwarloc says:

      No. I win!!!

    2. avatar Jeff Cobb says:

      I want to win!!!!

      1. avatar Gran says:

        We all want to win.

        1. avatar Terry says:

          Gran gets it. 🙂

    3. avatar Anthony1911 says:

      A post here is like a free lotto ticket.

      1. avatar Yama says:

        I’ll take one ticket

  3. avatar Fosi says:

    If I won, it’d be hard to choose but I am sure I could find room in my safe.

    1. avatar Chris_from_NY says:

      Time to get a bigger safe.

    2. avatar Bryan says:

      You have a safe? I need to win so I can have an excuse to get a safe!

  4. avatar Matt Richardson says:

    While the concept is cool, most of the comments I’ve read over the last couple of days are a bunch of garbage to just up post-count.

    It occurred to me this morning, the extra clicks and refreshes must be VERY good for business. Well played, Farago. I am genuinely impressed

    1. avatar Red in Texas says:

      You

      1. avatar Red in Texas says:

        mean

        1. avatar Red in Texas says:

          like

        2. avatar Red in Texas says:

          these?

          😀 😀 😀 😀

      2. avatar Brian says:

        at least you’re owning it

    2. avatar outwardhound says:

      Yup.

      1. avatar Cory says:

        Double yup

        1. avatar Yama says:

          yup yup

    3. avatar Stinkeye says:

      I noticed the same thing. The gun giveaway idea is cool, but I’ll be glad when it’s over. The signal:noise ratio in the comments is usually pretty iffy on a good day, and since the contest was announced, it’s plummeted to near zero.

      Maybe the rule should have been, the millionth comment would win, but not if it’s just a dumb “Did I win?” comment…

      1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

        The signal:noise ratio really seems to depend on the subject of the article. I don’t even read the comments on most articles these days in hope that I can avoid a premature stroke.

        1. avatar Trevor F. says:

          I agree!

    4. avatar Bob H says:

      Clicks and refreshes are very good for business

      1. avatar Bob H says:

        Is it any different than when other review websites have giveaways?

  5. avatar Red in Texas says:

    The comments are rocketing along nicely.

    1. avatar nelson says:

      you are trying hard

      1. avatar nelson says:

        but will not succeed

      2. avatar nelson says:

        the gun is mine

      3. avatar Drew A says:

        Looks like most people are.

        1. avatar Cory says:

          I think the hamsters in the server room where the site is hosted are basically near death by all this posting

    2. avatar A-Rod says:

      I would like a .277 Wolverine build up if I were to win.

  6. avatar actionphysicalman says:

    Is that Imelda Marcos’s gun closet?

    1. avatar Red in Texas says:

      Nah, not enough nickel in there.

  7. avatar dph says:

    Are we there yet?

    1. avatar A-Rod says:

      We are this far away on the map. (Holds up fingers a inch apart)

  8. avatar DanielB says:

    I want a hi-point!

    1. avatar Martin says:

      You could get 3

      1. avatar Yama says:

        or one and really bling it out. It’d be like those really ghetto cars with nice rims

  9. avatar Anonymous says:

    Can I run a bot that automatically posts something every 5 seconds?

    1. avatar Jeremy in Ohio says:

      You could, but someone’s 4 second bot would probably beat you… Or set you up for success, who knows.

      Would be funny if the winning comment was on an old article though.

    2. avatar emfourty gasmask says:

      I’m sure some people are already ahead of you 😛

      1. avatar Cory says:

        It’s a toss up with everybody and their uncle trying to post as fast as possible.

        Including me and my uncle (he just doesn’t know it yet)

        1. avatar Yama says:

          Cory, I am your uncle. (in honor of Star Wars Day)

  10. avatar Brad says:

    I figure I could be pretty close. New gun for me? Maybe?

  11. avatar Jolly Roger Out says:

    Do want. Plz?

  12. avatar gman says:

    Wow, what we would do for a freebie…
    Congrats to whomever wins and a sincere thank you to TTAG. Keep up the good fight.

  13. avatar emfourty gasmask says:

    What gun would you buy?

    1. avatar Jolly Roger Out says:

      Having trouble deciding between a K31 and some kind of SMLE

      1. avatar Red in Texas says:

        SIG Mk25

        1. avatar Accur81 says:

          Good choice. I’m on the Brea ProForce waiting list for the Sig 226 Tac Ops.

        2. avatar Jolly Roger Out says:

          $700 limit

        3. avatar Red in Texas says:

          Mr. Farago, said we can pay the difference. 😉

        4. avatar A-Rod says:

          .277 Wolverine build up.

    2. avatar CarlosT says:

      I’ve been pondering a couple CZs: a CZ75B-SA or a CZ 455. I just haven’t had the chance to hold either one, and I’m hesitant to commit to anything based on photos alone.

    3. avatar Yama says:

      I’m feeling something in .308

    4. avatar HB says:

      $700 off of a Dan Wesson 1911 would put it right in my wheelhouse. 🙂

      1. avatar HB says:

        Oh, and I plan to use it at the upcoming local Single-Stack match!

  14. avatar sean says:

    Wow! That’s amazing guys! Maybe I’m the winner?!

  15. avatar Larson says:

    totally need another Glock!

    1. avatar Mini14 says:

      We all need another GLOCK.

  16. avatar Rand says:

    Gee, Dad. Are we there yet ?

    1. avatar Grant S. says:

      I know, right. This is an invitation for even more of the juvenile crap we’ve had over the last few days. I’m not impressed with TTAG right now.

      1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

        It’s really not a huge deal, but it IS a little off-putting. That said, it’s a pretty clever scheme to up clicks and ad hits. As I posted above, I’m impressed with the shrewd move on TTAG’s part.

        1. avatar Fosi says:

          I guess maybe I’m too crass to be off-put. I’m on TTAG every day because I like a lot of the articles and their take on the news (sometimes).

          Why not go for the win, then?

        2. avatar Matt Richardson says:

          I browse daily, and have for years. I continue to patronize the site. That doesn’t mean I can’t be annoyed by the staff on occasion.

          Notice I COMMENDED Farago for doing this

        3. avatar Fosi says:

          Hey, we all get annoyed occassionally.

          Tomatos/Tomaatos, potatos, potaatos.

        4. avatar FUDD says:

          I’ve been a fan since second month TTAG opened. That ought to be worth something.
          Can I get a cookie?

  17. avatar Red in Texas says:

    Can we cover the difference on something more expensive?

    1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

      I was wondering this myself

    2. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Yes.

      1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

        A rare appearance by the man himself!

        Thanks, dude!

        1. avatar Red in Texas says:

          Too cool!

      2. avatar Grant S. says:

        Could you at least tell people that spam posts won’t win. Or is increasing traffic unabashedly the goal?

        1. avatar Matt Richardson says:

          I think increasing traffic IS unabashedly the goal, and why not?

          Sure, the comment section is a circus right now, but it’s a big milestone for TTAG and a good opportunity to boost revenue. Based on how well this has done, I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see this become a semi-regular thing on TTAG.

          It’s a clever move.

      3. avatar Kapeltam says:

        Sweet. I’ve been eyeing an RRA 10mm.

      4. avatar Jake Pivo says:

        Wouldn’t it be ironic if Mr. Farago’s comment was the winner? LOL

        Good luck to all.

  18. avatar kendall coley says:

    Mongo like!

  19. avatar AllAmerican says:

    Hell yeah. Here’s to a new carry piece.

  20. avatar icanbne1 says:

    And the Second Amendment remains as necessary to the preservation of true liberty now, just as it did with the prior 999,999 comments

  21. avatar Paul G says:

    Coming soon….2A swag!

  22. avatar Jeremiah S. says:

    That sounds like a pretty good deal. I hope I win, but good luck to everyone

  23. avatar Shane Nishibun says:

    I had no idea there existed a comment contest. 🙂 Good luck to that person!

  24. avatar Vincent says:

    neat deal

  25. avatar greaterfool says:

    Count me in

  26. avatar Flyboy says:

    Throw my hat in the ring.

    You guys are great. I read your blog all the time. Keep up the good work!

  27. avatar Josh says:

    Come on big money!

    1. avatar A-Rod says:

      Winner winner chicken dinner

  28. avatar Gordon Wagner says:

    I’m not above posting a comment just in case I get lucky…

  29. avatar gman says:

    Never seen so many one liners!

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      Apparently you’ve never gone to the GasBuddy forums where they give points for commenting. You’ll never se so many short single words in your life.

  30. avatar boodog says:

    my try

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      Sorry, my turn…

  31. avatar Sam says:

    Got a pistol and rifle, would love a shotgun to round out the 3!

  32. avatar Will Collins says:

    Would love to get a hold of a used Benelli MR1 for $700 bucks, but I’ll settle for a Mini 14, since NJ hates on ARs.

  33. avatar Max says:

    I doubt I’ll be that lucky 1,000,000 because I never win anything. But man, I’d love a Walther PPQ Navy so much.

    1. avatar Red in Texas says:

      Ha ha, I know how you feel. I won a DU gun raffle 2 weeks ago, so all my luck is used up.

    2. avatar Yama says:

      you are a man of good taste. I will accept that same gun in your honor

  34. avatar Greg says:

    Ah what a great deal! Unlike the one of living near Chicago.

  35. avatar Josh says:

    700 would build a decent AR for sure.

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      These days? Yup. Get it now though. Once the presidential race is on, Hilary will decidedly start another run on firearms.

  36. avatar Mike says:

    Kneel Before Zod!!!

  37. avatar Cody says:

    What is the count now?

    1. avatar Chadwick P. says:

      1 million!

  38. avatar nynemillameetuh says:

    If I win, please donate the money to the NRA’s legal fund.

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      You should aim for the Second Amendment Foundation. They’re the ones fighting the majority of the legal fights.

    2. avatar Roymond says:

      I think it would be better for you to find someone who needs a decent carry gun and donate your win there.

  39. avatar colby says:

    sudo apt-get install hk vp9

    1. avatar Josh says:

      wouldn’t it be apt-get install?

      1. avatar SigGuy says:

        You need to be root. Password for sudo?

    2. avatar OODAloop says:

      “sudo apt-get install hk vp9”

      Nice. A true *NIX geek.

  40. avatar Scott says:

    I’m not the most frequent or eloquent commenter, but I come here about every day.

    May as well throw in for free gunz!

  41. avatar dph says:

    Did I win?

  42. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    This will probably go to a first time commenter.

    1. avatar Accur81 says:

      That’d be fine by me.

      1. avatar Another Robert says:

        Yeah, that would actually be kind of nice.

      2. avatar FUDD says:

        Yep. Always wondered how many repeat lurkers vs commenters ratio on TTAG.

        And I wonder how much sticky-ness of commenters, first time here from gun giveaway, that are still reading a month later. That would be the real ROI.

        NICK NICK NICK – stats heavy warning order: standby for oporder to follow. Launch the data bases.

    2. avatar Another Robert says:

      Or a troll.

      1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

        It would actually be kind of awesome if Shannon came trolling and won a free gun!

        1. avatar Red in Texas says:

          I’m sure she will just add it to her already extensive collection. 😉

  43. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    I’ve never commented before

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      Excellent. Try it a few more times; you’ll learn to like it.

  44. avatar Mike says:

    May the Fourth be with you.

    1. avatar Tim Going says:

      Happy Star Wars Day ner vod! Live long and prosper!

      1. avatar Yama says:

        we should all watch the star wars holiday special to celebrate this special day

  45. avatar Steven02 says:

    Pick me! Pick me!

  46. avatar Herman says:

    I would like to win the gun. I am not really picky, but would like a M-14 for a rifle, or a small compact semiauto pistol that would be good for concealed carry.

  47. avatar Herman says:

    I would like to win the gun. I am not really picky, but would like a M-14 for a rifle, or a small compact semi auto pistol that would be good for concealed carry.

  48. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    I’d go with a Glock 10mm probably

    1. avatar FUDD says:

      G43 for me.

  49. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Ooh, ooh, … pick me pick me!

  50. avatar Sam says:

    I can’t deal with the pressure, last comment and best of luck to the eventual winner (:

  51. avatar Armed Mama in CO says:

    What’s the count now?

  52. avatar slowermonkey76 says:

    Do you get four if you pick a Hi point?

  53. avatar younggun21 says:

    Please tell me i won.

  54. avatar Nick says:

    Glock 43, please.

    1. avatar OODAloop says:

      A friend bought one at Cabelas this weekend. A whopping $550. Ouch…

  55. avatar Accur81 says:

    Maybe a Shield 9mm and a Bodyguard .380…

    1. avatar FUDD says:

      Could I spend it on Glock accessories- G23 Lone Wolf barrel, trigger kit, flashlight?

  56. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Are we there yet?????

    1. avatar Accur81 says:

      Very close, I’ll bet…

      1. avatar Yama says:

        better be, I can only come up with lame comments for so long

  57. avatar slowermonkey76 says:

    Maybe two if you go with a Taurus?

    1. avatar Red in Texas says:

      Better get matching ones, so you have spare parts. 😀

  58. avatar Kapeltam says:

    Incentives are always nice. Of course, once someone wins, posting will drop back down.

  59. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    This has to be close if my math was right!

  60. avatar Mike says:

    1,000,000

    1. avatar Grant S. says:

      Maybe they’ll have a separate prize for the 1,000 person to post “1,000,000?”

      1. avatar Grant S. says:

        A big steaming turd would be appropriate. I’d be happy to provide.

  61. avatar LTd says:

    There can’t be too many left…

  62. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    This is silly

    1. avatar Grant S. says:

      That’s an understatement.

      1. avatar OODAloop says:

        Yeah, no doubt. Look at all these folks trying to win my contest. I’m positively ashamed of y’all.

        1. avatar Yama says:

          ha

  63. avatar KingSarc48625 says:

    Up to $700? The temptation to troll the hell out of the prize by dropping it on a Hi-Point is immense. It might break the internet.

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      You sir or ma’am win the Intertubez today!

    2. avatar Matt Richardson says:

      That would be hysterical…

      1. avatar Red in Texas says:

        JA-9 for the win

  64. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Oh come on … the suspense is killing me!

  65. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    I literally am not going to get any work done today…thanks again TTAG lol.

  66. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    Is someone counting these?

    1. avatar FUDD says:

      Yes, and you were 999,999….hehe

  67. avatar Massan says:

    I is a winner?

  68. avatar Rick Eyerly says:

    FNS 9c, please.

    1. avatar Yama says:

      good choice. I will picture of me shooting it for you

  69. avatar Cody says:

    i Just got an email.. I WON!

  70. avatar Higgs says:

    I would not mind a low in AR 15 to start my scary rifle collection.

  71. avatar Sam says:

    I hope the winner isn’t actually on this page

  72. avatar Bernard says:

    Comment.

  73. avatar Chow says:

    Win!

  74. avatar Nick says:

    Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!

  75. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Beretta CX4 Storm in .45 ACP please!

  76. avatar LTd says:

    There should be less than 15 comments left

    1. avatar Yama says:

      the comments are exploding now

  77. avatar Naught Forya says:

    I need a new bear gun. Glock 20SF, please.

  78. avatar Alex says:

    I’m hoping for an upper receiver for my ar-15!!! :>

  79. avatar LTd says:

    new rifle for the win?

  80. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    The web site keeps track of the comments

  81. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Oh no, I am posting comments too quickly … WordPress told me to slow down!

  82. avatar Model 31 says:

    I predict the 1,000,000th comment will be something along the lines of “+1” or “you open carriers will ruin it for us all!”

    1. avatar Red in Texas says:

      x1000

    2. avatar Matt Richardson says:

      Damn Chipotle ninjas….

  83. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    Did you know you can use a walnut to fix scratches in wood?

    1. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

      I did NOT know that. Did you know that Hippo’s fart through their mouths?

      1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Yeah, it is called burping.

        1. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

          Does that make us hippos?

    2. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      I think you mistyped your name … it should be Martha Stewart

    3. avatar Red in Texas says:

      No kidding?

  84. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    This has to be close … drum roll please!

    1. avatar Corey says:

      Really close now

      1. avatar Yama says:

        win it

  85. avatar slowermonkey76 says:

    They need to keep it going by having comment gear give a ways. Every ten thousand comment gets a free gift bag.

    1. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

      I agree with that statement entirely

  86. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    Guns are bad mmmkay

  87. avatar Scott says:

    Oh please I’d like to win.

  88. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    Oh dear lord be m be me PICK MEEEEEE!!!

    I want a CZ75!

    1. avatar Yama says:

      very fine choice

  95. avatar JPD says:

    I have been out of the loop. Just saw this million comment thing. Well, here’s my shot

  96. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Well, I cannot say that I did not try.

    1. avatar Yama says:

      do or do not, there is no try

  97. avatar KingSarc48625 says:

  100. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    Maybe 6 Mosin-Nagants?

  101. avatar RenegadeDave says:

    Could really use that extra gat!

  102. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    There are now 132 comments on this thread alone which is more than enough to exceed 1,000,000 comments. (This thread announced that there were, 999,9007 comments as of the posting of this story.) Unless there is some weird math going on, the contest has to be over.

    1. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

      your name seems accurate 😛 993 comments would be needed in total

    2. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

      That’s not even a number

      1. avatar Larson says:

        Did we all lose yet?

  103. avatar MojoRonin says:

    Gopher snorkle. Just for having the millionth comment be odd.

  104. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    Oh lordy, my job is distracting me from more important work. I NEED TO POST

    1. avatar HB says:

      IKR? 2 meetings this AM have kept me from hopping in and commenting as much as I’d like.

  105. avatar Andy says:

    I estimate we are around 999, 300 right now. (judging by this article and the comments on the few others that precede it.)

  106. avatar DrewR55 says:

    That’s awesome! I didn’t think we’d hit one million until Wednesday at the earliest.

    1. avatar DrewR55 says:

      I just went back to the top and re-read that we can now also choose rifles and shotguns. That greatly expands the list of options and makes things even more difficult. If I were to win it would have been hard enough to settle on which hand gun.

      Choices, choices, choices.

      1. avatar FUDD says:

        The only question is 870 or 590?

  107. avatar HB says:

    $700 is tough…lots in the $500-$600 category, lots in the $800-$900 category…time to do some research on slickguns…. 🙂

  108. avatar Cool says:

    I want a new Beretta or a CZ 75

    On second thought, I’ll go pick something out from H&K. I’m currently less than 50 miles from their headquarters in Oberndorf am Neckar, Germany.

  156. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    BETTER QUESTION!!!!

    What would everybody NAME their new firearm?

    Mine would be “Lucky” or “Shameless”

    1. avatar Cory says:

      I’d go with “Steve”

      ..or maybe “Carl”

  216. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    If the gun is predetermined, and it’s illegal in NY, CA, NJ, MA etc. what happens?

    1. avatar JJ48 says:

      Well, the post said, “…of their choice…” so I’m guessing there’s little chance of that happening.

    2. avatar Jwestham2 says:

      Provided the winner is from one of those states.

  217. avatar Don't Tread on Me says:

    It would be great to get a new EAA Witness (Tanfoglio Force, a rose by any other name…) but for $700 I’d be interested in trying to find a used Sig 1911 Scorpion. They seem to be around $1050 new but with a little cash pitched in from my side (is that legal TTAG?) it should be possible.

  234. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Honestly.

    If I win. I dont want the gun, although I do need a hunting rifle because I don’t have one and I just got based in Colorado.

    However, I’m active duty military and would like the gun sold, and the proceeds donated to the Chris Kyle Foundation on behalf on TTAG and myself.

  235. avatar Steve Clark says:

    Still trying

  236. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    What sort of contests should be held in the future? comment related just explodes in spam, and i have no shame in admitting i am one of the MANY culprits.

    1. avatar Ryan S. says:

      At least we can comment on thread related to the number of spam posts. . .

  237. avatar Josh says:

    In it to win it!!!1

  238. avatar Dave says:

    I’m pretty impressed with how quickly this contest is nearing conclusion! I thought it would take a week or more!

  239. avatar Brett says:

    I really feel that I deserve to win!

  240. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

    I still remember the very first time I got a spam email telling me I was the hundred thousands person to visit whatever site it was and if I clicked on it then I’d win a prize. Of course that prize was not really a prize, but a good lesson in basic computer security such that I’ve virtually never clicked on anything even slightly questionable since. So no, I don’t get too worked up about it. Besides it IS a bit of fun watching all the desperate posts.

    Tom

    1. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

      btw, I’m guessing about 450-500 to go at the moment.

  246. avatar JPD says:

    Curious….why $700.00 ????

    1. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

      They wanted to watch the winner writhe in pain over the decision between a new $600 gun or a used $800 gun

  247. avatar nelson says:

    considering we were 1000 comments shy, and there have already been about 360 here, we all, at the very least, have a 1/600 shot of $700

  248. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Anyday now. Was less than 1000 comments left when this article was posted so it has to be nearing the close.

  249. avatar nelson says:

    those arent horrible odds

  250. avatar Mr. Antisocial Guy says:

    I still don’t have a snowballs chance in Hades of winning. But OTOH it is a chance!

        I don’t know.

    That Mayweather- Pacquiao fight sure was a snorefest.

    1. avatar Paul G says:

      We have to be close now….

  266. avatar slowermonkey76 says:

    Winner should be given a plaque with their comment on it.

    1. avatar Jwestham2 says:

      That I wouldn’t mind.

    2. avatar Phil says:

      I love lamp.

      1. avatar Gran says:

        lol I love it

  267. avatar Josh says:

    And we are back!!!!!!! TTAG for the win!

  268. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Drum roll please.

  269. avatar Josh says:

    So about that 1,000,000 post…… this is it!!!!!

  270. avatar KB Dave says:

    Free guns are cool.

  271. avatar Brandon says:

    Woo-hoo!

  272. avatar KB Dave says:

    What’s the count at now?

    1. avatar nelson says:

      we need the count! suspense is killer

    2. avatar Gran says:

      I hope we find out who wins soon!!!

  273. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Straight outta Compton?

    1. avatar Gran says:

      They need the free gun there more than anyone else.

  274. avatar Steve Clark says:

    Hail TTAG!!!

  275. avatar Steve Clark says:

    Are we there yet?

  276. avatar Phil says:

    Also, I went to an airshow yesterday, and the sheriff had a booth showing off all of their toys (MRAP, Barrett .50, “gas” launcher). To the officer sitting there I ask, “Why does the sheriff need a .50 caliber sniper rifle?” His response: “Two reasons! 1) The bad guys have these and we are NOT going to be outgunned. 2) We use it to disable vehicles.” I chuckled and said “Ok.” I think he knew what I was up to because he looked perturbed.

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      Lots of “bad guys” using .50 cals out there…

      1. avatar Gran says:

        And according to some political people, those shoot down planes and require no aiming.

      2. avatar Phil says:

        I know, right? I wanted to call him out but I knew it would put me in a bad mood hearing him try to justify himself.

    2. avatar Steve Clark says:

      Because ISIS.

      Also, who WOULDN’T want a .50?

      1. avatar Phil says:

        That I will not argue with you. Everyone wants a .50 – especially one which is paid for by somebody else.

  277. avatar Gran says:

    Does it count if you spam comments?

  278. avatar Bud says:

    I still have quite a bit of room left in my safe and will happily accept a new and better yet free handgun

    1. avatar Phil says:

      I love lamp.

  279. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Just guesstimating by how many comments are here, plus new posts of other articles, it has to be real close by now. Can’t be anymore than 200 left

    1. avatar Phil says:

      I love lamp.

  280. avatar shawn says:

    oh snap

  281. avatar shawn says:

    this is getting down to the wire

  282. avatar nelson says:

    i wonder if there will be a 500 count notification

  283. avatar Jesse Guffie says:

    Love this website.

  284. avatar shawn says:

    I could sure use a new gun

  285. avatar Alan says:

    I’m not going to lie, a brand-spankin’ new firearm would be pretty sweet. Maybe as a Mother’s Day gift for my wife? That would be, by far, the best gift I’ve given her for Mother’s Day for sure.

    “What better way to say, ‘I love you,’ …”

  286. avatar tblank says:

    So if it wasnt free and you were buying a complete ar for under $700 would you choose a ruger ar-556 or s&w m&p15 sport???

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      Probably the Ruger.

      1. avatar tblank says:

    5,4,3,2,1….ding ding ding. We have a winner.

    Me

    1. avatar Gran says:

      No me.

  292. avatar Zach says:

    Worth a shot. Got to be getting close by now.

    1. avatar Gran says:

      Probably off by about 200

  293. avatar KB Dave says:

    I need a Glock 17 to send to Agency Arms.

  294. avatar nelson says:

    just want to win this gun.

  295. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    ladedadadada.

    Over yet?

    1. avatar Gran says:

      Soon. Very soon my friend.

  296. avatar Bud says:

    I think it is probably will go to the most deserving and that would be me

  297. avatar mike says:

    Freedom. And luck ..?

  298. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    I wonder if i can find any used Scorpions out there?

  299. avatar KB Dave says:

    Number one million, right here.

  300. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Over yet?

  301. avatar nelson says:

    how about that for traffic if we can crash TTAG

    1. avatar Gran says:

      The system is now getting slower…

  302. avatar Bud says:

    one more try

  303. avatar AllAmerican says:

    In the first round of the WW3 playoffs ISIS was embarassingly defeated by the Cowboys.

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      I’d rather both of those teams lose…

  304. avatar Gary says:

    By my crappy calculations, I will be at work when the final comment comes in. So I might have to rule myself out. But here’s trying anyways!!!

  305. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    Thank you for playing folks. I’ll take a used Scorpion. Or a Saiga 12ga

  306. avatar nelson says:

    i mean considering that the TTAG logo is burned into my computer screen from years of use, i think i deserve the gun

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      Deserve’s got nothin’ to do with it.

  307. avatar Matt Lambdin says:

    If it’s an antigunner, wouldn’t that be hilarious?

    I call ‘dibs’ on their prize.

    1. avatar HB says:

      I’d hate to put stipulations on the giveaway, but there’s got to be at least some way to know if they actually WANT a free gun, right? And if not, give it to the million and first comment poster?

    2. avatar Gran says:

      I never thought about that. That would be ironic. And just sad.

  308. avatar nelson says:

    and the fact that i just failed an economics exam as a result of posting most of last night

  309. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    It’s probably already over and they are drafting the winner thread as we speak.

  310. avatar Bud says:

    Still trying. Fell asleep for a moment listening to Dr Ben Carlson droning on and on and on

    1. avatar Drew A says:

      Carson* and meh he probably won’t get too far in the race.

  311. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    I really hope this doesn’t go to a first time troll…

  312. avatar Josh says:

    I remain in it to win it!

  313. avatar Brian says:

    I’m guessing the large number commenters is what’s causing the site to run slow as molasses?”

  314. avatar HB says:

    Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, it’s posting cray cray up in here!

  315. avatar nelson says:

    yeah i hope they announce there is a winner as soon as it clicks

  316. avatar Gran says:

    Am I 1,000,000?

  317. avatar Josh says:

    Thanks for the give away

    1. avatar Paul G says:

      My inbox!

  318. avatar KB Dave says:

    It’s gotta be getting real close now.

  319. avatar nelson says:

    yall can give up. that kahr has my name on it

    1. avatar Josh says:

      Do you feel it brah?

    we are within 100. i feel it

  323. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Tbh, this very nice of TTAG to do.

    In return, I stand by my earlier comment.

  324. avatar KB Dave says:

    Hopefully they announce the five comments leading up to and after the millionth comment, some of these are pretty decent.

  325. avatar JetJockChunk says:

    This is getting out of hand. Hopefully this craziness ends soon. Also, I’m a sucker for a free gun. But come on fellas, at least add some content to your post and not just “am I 1,000,000?”

    And just buy me the gun

    Do you still let citizens of the PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF NEW YORKASTAN enter?

  331. avatar tblank says:

    This is the adult version of calling in to some lame radio station trying to win tickets or a cd … But this prize is the gift that keeps on giving!

  332. avatar trever says:

    Good luck everyone

  333. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Any winner yet?

  334. avatar nelson says:

    what is all time record for posts? 600?

    1. avatar nelson says:

      will there be a winner before we get to 600 on this one?

  335. avatar Phil says:

    Oh man! A daisy pump would be great!

  336. avatar JC says:

    Keep it up

  337. avatar blahpony says:

    Dey hate us cuz they aint U.S.

  340. avatar Josh says:

    Woot!

  341. avatar Frank Minchey says:

  342. avatar Phil says:

    Oh man! A Remington R51 would be great!

  343. avatar Drew A says:

    Should be getting very close to 1 million now.

  344. avatar KB Dave says:

    Winning.

  345. avatar nelson says:

    C’mon Sig P320!!

  348. avatar dh34 says:

    I would say do you people have no shame…..as I post this….

    1. avatar nelson says:

      no, there is no shame when there is a free gun on the line

      1. avatar Jason says:

        Agreed 🙂

      2. avatar dh34 says:

        I’m with ya

  349. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

    RF’s server has got to be just about on fire….spam filter overheated as well. And to continue the irony, everyone, myself included, is posting more often in the mistaken thought that doing so increases the odds of winning, but in reality is the other way around. Because, more website traffic > more first time visitors > more comments and round and round it all goes.

    Maybe we could have a honorable mention prize for the closest guess as to WHEN the big one is posted? Say, a case of 5.56, 7.62 or 9mm/45? Say at 11:18 A.M Central Time. Your guess? 😀

    Tom

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      10:52 AM Central Time is my guess, sir.

      1. avatar dh34 says:

        10:51 CST

  350. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    This comment section had to set the record for most comments on an article.

  351. avatar Phil says:

    I just received an email that I won. Everyone can stop posting now.

  352. avatar KB Dave says:

    I’ll take a G17 please. Or a VP9. Either way is fine.

    1. avatar Jason says:

      I like my 19. Consider a 19 if you don’t already have one. It is only about .5″ shorter in barrel length and it is far easier to conceal.

      1. avatar KB Dave says:

        I’ve already got a 19. I want a 17 to send to Agency Arms for some upgrading.

  353. avatar nelson says:

    i got the same email! imagine that!

  354. avatar Gabe says:

    I feel dirty

    1. avatar dh34 says:

      In a way that only the healing power of a new gun can fix…

  355. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Funny, Phil, I got the same one.

  356. avatar Terry says:

    Thanks, for keeping us informed, and for fighting the good fight!

  357. avatar nelson says:

    ugh the suspense.

  360. avatar John says:

    What number am I?

  361. avatar nelson says:

    surprisingly, i dont mind being a whore for a free gun

  362. avatar KB Dave says:

    It’s got to be pretty close by now, with the comment spamming.

  363. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    Will they take my picture and ask me for a speech?

  364. avatar Jason says:

    Here’s hoping for an XDS in 9mm 🙂

  365. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    Guns please

  366. avatar bradlee says:

  367. avatar nelson says:

    come on RF, let us know!

  368. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    How mad would y’all be if the winner picked a HiPoint?

  369. avatar nelson says:

    can you imagine the ad revenue being generated currently?

    TTAG is liable to turn into a gun giveaway lottery site!

  374. avatar bradlee says:

    Ak! That’s what I’ll get!

  375. avatar Rick Eyerly says:

    Crazyness! I noticed yall deleted the post about the startled dude in the store parking lot.

  382. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    Too much web traffic is slowing my posting ability and probably a great stress test for TTAG’s servers

  383. avatar KB Dave says:

    If the winner chooses a Glock 43, I might throw up a little.

  384. avatar bradlee says:

    If someone got a hiking I would cry.

  385. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    I want a ghost gun my hat has s 30 caliber clip and the shoulder thing that goes up.

  386. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    DID I WIN!?

  387. avatar Cory says:

    A G43 maybe

  388. avatar nelson says:

    is it over?

  389. avatar Phil says:

    Curious to know how many people are at work right now…

  390. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    I want a ghost gun my that has a 30 caliber clip and the shoulder thing that goes up.

    1. avatar Phil says:

      It would be poetic justice if you were to win with this comment.

  391. avatar Brad in FL says:

    I concur that TTAG giving away guns on a regular basis would be awesome!

  392. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    I am completely ignoring my job duties at the moment, ugh.

  398. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Ghost gun with a 30 caliber clip and the shoulder thing that goes up.

    1. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

      What is that exactly?

  399. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    I need to stop posting and start gun shopping, please let me do that.

    its not over till a certain very nice lady starts singing

    1. avatar Gabe says:

      Are you calling me fat?

  401. avatar Gabe says:

    This is crazy…just go ahead and congratulate me already. 🙂

  402. avatar Phil says:

    I’m nothing but a whore. 14 comments for a slim chance at getting a free gun.

  403. avatar bradlee says:

    I wonder how long till the post the winner!

  404. avatar marvin2584 says:

    I’m curious to see what the winning comment will be

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      You’re not the only one.

  405. avatar Gabe says:

    Can I get an MRAP and multicam for that price?

  406. avatar KB Dave says:

    Give me liberty, or give me death.

    A free gun would also work.

  407. avatar ACP_arms says:

    Sooo… Mossberg 930 JM or Ruger AR-556

  408. avatar Rick Eyerly says:

    Once more into the breach, for an FNS 9c.

  409. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    I want a ghost gun with a 30 Caliber clip and the shoulder thing that goes.

  410. avatar DrewR55 says:

    Hmmm, I wonder if I could use the $700 towards half of an AR? Personally, I wouldn’t normally purchase a $1000 AR when I can build one for less but when it is someone else’s money that is a whole ‘nother can of worms.

  411. avatar Josh says:

    I feel it………. or at least I want to feel it……..in my hands…….Dat new gun tho!

    1. avatar nelson says:

      dat gun

  412. avatar Drew A says:

    1 mil?

  413. avatar bradlee says:

    I don’t need so shop! I know what I want!

    1. avatar Drew A says:

      I think most people that browse this website have a wishlist of stuff the purchase at some point.

  414. avatar nelson says:

    hopefully the winning comment is witty, creative, thoughtful, and most importantly, made by nelson

  415. avatar Phil says:

    Yeah, this contest is long over. I’m wasting my time at this point. Gonna go write my congressman instead…

  416. avatar B Fitts says:

    “I’ve got a Golden Ticket”… Yes?

  417. avatar Brian says:

    I’m guessing we’ve hit the million mark by now.

    Now I just have to consult my wish list and see what fits the $700 price tag.

    1. avatar Gran says:

      I am thinking we are at the more 999,850 mark…

    2. avatar nelson says:

      hold your horses. i am the winner

    3. avatar Brian says:

      Either a second AR or a second M1 Garand. Maybe a decent lever action if I could find one at the right price?

  418. avatar Aaron Stewart says:

    ‘merica!

  419. avatar Swobard says:

    this is a very optimistic comment!

    1. avatar Gran says:

      Come on!! Are we there yet? I feel like a little kid in the back of a van on summer vacation…

  420. avatar marvin2584 says:

    Haha Tom from Pennsyltucky………….I love when people tell me I’m a Pennsyltuckian

  421. avatar bradlee says:

    It’s not like I have anything else to do besides sit here and post.

    1. avatar Gran says:

      lol Nice

  422. avatar Jwestham2 says:

    Give me the ghost gun with a 30 caliber clip and the shoulder thing that goes up.

    1. avatar Gran says:

      You first have to sacrifice another AR to the gods to get the ghost gun.

  423. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    I’m curious if this thread is the most commented in TTAG history.

    1. avatar Gran says:

      We are probably there…how dumb is the comment going to be that wins?

  424. avatar KB Dave says:

    We need to hit a million so I can get back to work…

    1. avatar Gran says:

      Productivity has fallen 3% since this thread has started acrossed the US

  425. avatar B Fitts says:

    Or how about now?

    1. avatar Gran says:

      Or now?

  426. avatar Phil says:

    (Meaningless post that I’ve convinced myself is relevant so that I don’t feel like a complete Democrat)

    1. avatar Gran says:

      Made me laugh. Thanks for that.

  427. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

    Under 200 to go for sure by now. And my original guess of 11:18 am will definitely be late. So we’re spamming everything now. Might as well get it done and over with, no?

    Tom

    1. avatar KB Dave says:

      My predicted time was a minute ago… we’ll see, I think I was just a tad early on my guess.

      1. avatar Gran says:

        Can I demand a recount if I dont win?

    2. avatar Jolly Roger Out says:

      I’m okay with spam as long as it ends quickly. We’re all greedy for new guns anyway

      1. avatar Gran says:

        Its done. WHo got it?

  428. avatar JamesinNC says:

    Here we go again…I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

  429. avatar Cory says:

    omg what is happening….so slow

  430. avatar Jolly Roger Out says:

    Is it now?

    How about now?

  431. avatar nelson says:

    ^^^ what a great country. a gun give away. because ‘merica. because capitalism

    1. avatar Cory says:

      I was told there would be prizes….

  432. avatar marvin2584 says:

    It’s like a badge of honor 🙂

  433. avatar bradlee says:

    Is it up to 700 or a 700 dollar credit?

    1. avatar Cory says:

      I’m thinking $700 worth of gun

  434. avatar Gabe says:

    Daddy needs a new EDC!!

  435. avatar nelson says:

    this is going to be it. i feel it- my regression analysis says so!

  436. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    It has to be over, please tell me it’s over so that i can actually read some articles on here.

    1. avatar Cory says:

      This has ruined my productivity

  437. avatar marvin2584 says:

    I’m surprised this contest hasn’t crashed the site

  438. avatar Zeke says:

    I think I’d have to go with a Tikka t3 or mossy 590a1. Been eyeing one of them up for a while

  439. avatar D G says:

    I know this one is number 1,000,000!

    1. avatar Cory says:

      Yeah well, hello right back at ya. There are indeed a lot of us Toms. I used to live and work in the Missouri Ozarks and went by “miserylovescompany” back then. But I’m quite happy here in Georgia even though the winters in the mountains are almost (but not quite) as cold as back in Misery.
