Finally, Here Are Our Summer Content Contest Winners

winner-winner-chicken-dinner_design

Sheesh! It’s never easy culling through the tidal wave of worthy entries we receive in our content contests. As you may be aware, we have a uniquely talented group of readers who always put their best collective foot forward, making the job of picking the best of them more difficult than reloading a revolver in a gunfight. But now that Labor Day is in the rear view mirror and summer is unofficially over, pick one we must. The shame of it is that . . .

naming a winner and a runner up will leave so many worthy efforts on the table. Posts by John KornegayRokurotaAiden Pheil, Logan MeteshAndrew SmithAdam S., Chad Beaty and Anonymous come to mind. It’s a crying shame we don’t have enough swag to present to all of them. But such is life and in life, some rise just a little bit higher.

So without further ado, our grand prize winner, the recipient of a beautiful new Henry Lever Action Octagon Frontier rifle, is Bud Harton for his body of work, but his L-Lincoln, L-Lincoln 5 post in particular. Our first runner up and winner of a 50th Anniversary commemorative box of 250 rounds of Winchester AA shogun shells is Logan Metesh for his Little Rifle With a Big Impact post.

Congrats to the winners and thanks to all who entered for making my job more difficult. It was definitely worth it.

    Excellent choices; I very much enjoyed Bud’s articles, and shared them with my friends/family who are also PTOG & Vietnam or LEO veterans. And Logan’s recounting of his relationship with his Opa reminded me of my own Opa.

    I do not envy you the job you have picking a winner. I wholeheartedly agree that the talent in this group is staggering.

    Congrats to all the winners and even submitters. Keep up the good work everyone.

    Good job Bud , concise reporting of facts and issues and I also noted you weren’t as combative as one could have expected in defending your perspectives allowing for good discourse . Well done .
    Just because everyone doesn’t agree with your views don’t make em wrong necessarily , just human .
    God bless .

    Great job all around folks.
    I haven’t been here as much as I would have liked due to furthering my education, but from what I have seen, the quality keeps going up. Keep up the good work.

  12. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    Lots and lots of worthy contenders among the entries. It’s both difficult and easy to pick the winner: it’s tough narrowing down to just one, but whomever is chosen, you almost can’t go wrong among these choices.

    Well done to all of the entrants.

  13. avatar Tile floor says:

    As much as I would have liked for mine to have taken home the .22 Lever Bacon, I have to say those two definitely deserve the win

  14. avatar Chad Beaty says:
