In a completely shameless attempt to gain a few new subscribers to my mediocre-at-best YouTube channel, I’ve belatedly decided to do a 2nd Amendment-related Halloween costume contest. Details on how to enter — you don’t even need a costume! — and on what the two winners shall win are as follows…

There’s a prize — an OSS BANNAR Alpha 1 (5.56) or Bravo 1 (7.62) — for the winner who includes a photograph of his or her costume and another prize — TBD but likely another muzzle brake — for the winner who simply comments on YouTube or on this post with the best 2nd Amendment-related Halloween costume idea. Either way you have to be subscribed to win. Yes, like I said, shameless.

Please link to the photograph in your comment. If you’re commenting on here, either include your YouTube username or at least input a valid e-mail address when you comment so I can track you down should you win. If linking to a photo in a public comment isn’t possible for whatever reason, you’re welcome to e-mail the pic to GunsAndGearEJ20 [ at ] Gmail [ dot ] com.

If you don’t have a firearm that can accept one of these brakes, we’ll find something different and equivalent to use as a prize instead.

Submissions will run through November 15th, and I’ll select and announce the winners shortly thereafter. Nov 15th also happens to be the due date for our 2nd kiddo, so my apologies in advance should I be MIA for a few days +/- around that date. I’ll definitely announce the winners within a week of the 15th though.

  1. Get old/ragged long-sleeve shirt or jacket.

    Tear or cut sleeves off at shoulder.

    Put on shirt/jacket without sleeves, then slide sleeves into place on arms. Temporarily secure them with hook-and-loop fasteners or duct tape tabs on the back (less visible).

    When asked “What are YOU?”, you dramatically rip the sleeves off one at a time, and tell the questioner “I am the Second Amendment, the right to bare arms!”

  2. Alt: Have a friend who is artistic draw a simple line drawing of a bear on each of your biceps with a Sharpie, so it looks like a tattoo. Once again, you have “The right to bear arms.”

      • Yes, but it was after my first post, and before my second post.

        What can I say, there are a lot of variations on the “bare/bear arms” thing.

        You could also do a dyslexic 2nd amendment by dressing in a bear suit and holding a prop gun (right to arm bears), but some folks might think that is insensitive…

  3. Walk around with a pistol and half empty bottle of whiskey and you can tell people you’re a Democrat from Chicago, Louisiana, DC, New Jersey, California, New York, etc…. in favor of UBC’s, AWB renewal, CC bans, publishing the names of gun owners, etc….

  4. If this were, I’d make a wearable cargo container costume and stand just below the waterline at the local marinas. Unseen navigational hazards are pretty scary!
    Back in high school, I didn’t really wear a “costume” per-se, I took an old white t-shirt, made holes and used markers to simulate entry and exit wounds. (I went to high-school well before Columbine, et al)…

  5. Costume would be an AR-15 lower receiver in white without a serial number. So in other words a “ghost gun”

    • I like it!

      You could wave it at anti-gun liberals and yell “BOO!” to scare them!

      But just the lower; I wouldn’t recommend waving around anything that REMOTELY looks like a firearm. Heck, I might make it a stripped lower…

  6. I’m dressing up as a concealed carrier. Remember, concealed means concealed. Funny but nobody ever guesses what my costume is. 🙂

  7. White shirt
    youth football shoulder pads
    string tied to pads to make them lift up.
    shirt says assault weapons ban….now
    with shoulder thingy that goes up…/liftsupshoulderthingy.

    Also obligatory slutty moms demand MORE action risqué costume with kroeger shopping cart full of Starbucks and Chipotle……

    Go as a depressed 10 rd magazine. ..who only has 7 friends because he lives in ny
