Aspiring TTAG gun reviewers have until August 1 to submit their magnum (or lesser calibered) opus to firstname.lastname@example.org, in the hopes of winning a lightly-used SIG SAUER Legion P229. Truth be told, we’re not exactly flooded with entries at the moment. I’m going to go ahead and assume that the trickle reflects the fact that entrants are busy shooting, taking pics, writing and generally assembling their review(s) for submission. In any case, I reckon your odds of scoring the gun or a cash prize, and maybe landing yourself a reviewers’ gig at TTAG are pretty darn good.
Of course that still depends on the quality of your work. Once again, here are les règles du jeu . . .
First, click here to make sure TTAG hasn’t already reviewed the firearm you’d like to review. (Feel free to review an “old” gun.) Then click here for our gun review guidelines. In general, follow the format of any existing review. Don’t forget specs and star ratings! Humor and the occasional firearms-related digressions are features, not bugs.
Write it up, take great pics, send the text in the body of an email with jpegs attached to email@example.com. Put the words “GUN REVIEW” and the model reviewed in the subject bar, all caps. Like this: GUN REVIEW SIG SAUER P229 LEGION. Only not that one.
I’m going to miss her. But I know she’ll go to a good home: the gun safe of someone who knows how to appreciate a fine firearm. As SIG’s Swiss founders might say, Wir wünschen viel Glück!
