You’ve made it past the 4th of July. You still have two sad dried-out hamburger patties and half a bowl of congealing potato salad in the fridge and you’ve already seen three back-to-school ads on the tube. But don’t fret! Summer can’t ever end until we’ve given away a gun to the winner of TTAG’s annual summer content contest. This year, that beautiful boomstick is a Henry Lever Action Octagon Frontier Model in .22LR courtesy Henry Repeating Rifles. But wait! There’s more! . . .
Because we love our readers, we also have a second place prize this year – a box of 250 Winchester 50th Anniversary AA shot shells (1 1/8oz. #8s, to be exact) courtesy Winchester Ammunition.
We know what you’re wondering: “What do I have to do to earn one of these fabulous prizes?” Simple. Sit down at your computer. Stoke up a Liga Privada No. 9. Peer through the hazy blue smoke and pour yourself a couple of fingers of Walking Stick bourbon. Once you’re settled in, creative juices flowing, put fingers to keyboard and write something. Anything really (as long as it’s gun-related). It can be a gun review, an editorial, a personal account of your favorite hunting trip…whatever you like.
Once you have it just the way you want it, send it to us. Email your entry (or entries) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to put CONTEST ENTRY in the subject line (emails without that may very well get lost in the shuffle). Enter early and as often as you like before midnight July 31.
We’ll run some of the best of what we get for your reading pleasure. If you don’t want your full name used when we post, be sure to let us know. Then we’ll pick the first and second place winners (using completely subjective criteria known only to those of us in TTAG’s super-secret, well-concealed above ground Austin bunker). Some time thereafter, we’ll announce the winners and ship them their booty.
So what are you waiting for? Stock up on bourbon and stogies and get to work.
