Housekeeping: One Millionth Comment Gets a Free Gun!


I write over one million words per year for TTAG. No biggie. I love my work. What’s really impressive: our readers’ output. While less than one percent of our readers comment, they do so with intelligence, passion, experience, wit and wisdom. There are too many regulars to cite by name, but they are all as important to this site’s health – and integrity – as anything our editorial staff produces. Equally, the readers who chime in once in a blue moon make TTAG what it is: a community of like-minded Americans dedicated to firearms freedom. You have my respect and thanks. To reflect our appreciation, the person writing the one millionth comment will get a gun of their choice up to a value of $700. As of this writing, we’re at 996,595 comments. Have at it!

    Ooh this should be fun

    1. avatar Aaron Hsu says:

      Oh, look who’s there. 🙂 I was just thinking that this is a shameless and brutally effective way to get comments.

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        Getting comments here isn’t really a difficult thing they have to fish for.

        That said, it’ll be a little while before one million is hit. The highest comment count of any post (this one, by the way) is just under 600. The average is probably somewhat less than 100 overall, so even with this contest driving things, it’s not gonna happen in the next 15 minutes.

        1. avatar CarlosT says:

          Nice to see you again, Matt!

          So.. This one?

        2. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Nope, not even close.

        3. avatar CarlosT says:

          Well, shucks.

          Anyway, good to see around again. I saw a bitone XDs in .40 at Cabela’s the other day. Right down your alley. The drive to Tulalip would probably be a little long for you, though.

        4. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Not a superfan of bi-tone. Black is where it’s at. I wouldn’t turn up my nose at a bi-tone if someone gave me one, though.

        5. avatar CarlosT says:

          Hmm. Somehow I got it in my head that you were. Mine are all black too.

        6. avatar JWM says:

          Once you go black, you never go back.

        7. avatar B says:

          Seems like the actual pattern is *everyone* goes black, then they buy a Mosin, then they go on to discover lever guns and revolvers are still awesome.

        8. avatar Matt in FL says:

          I’m halfway down your list, but lever guns just don’t excite me. Yet.

    2. avatar No_Smoking says:

      I need a new gun =/

      1. avatar OODAloop says:

        All that went thru my mind is the lyrics to Huey Lewis & The News “I Want a New Drug” with gun substituted.

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          Get a job then…

      2. avatar Michael says:

    7. avatar david says:

      Thanks for all you do, RF

      1. avatar Michael says:

        He is the man

    8. avatar B says:

      F*** b******* make money? I’m not about to turn down free gun.

    9. avatar Alexander Lin says:

      What free gun!!?? I want in

      1. avatar Michael says:

        Need so badly

    10. avatar Chris says:

      whats the current count at?

      1. avatar Daniel S says:

        Unsure of what the count is at, but count me in on the weaponry

    11. avatar Michael says:


    12. avatar Michael says:

      I really need a new gun though

      1. avatar Michael says:

        Need for a new gun is still there

  2. avatar Johnny says:

    Thats very nice to do!

  3. avatar Ray says:

    I love this blog!

  4. avatar JetJockChunk says:

    I love me some TTAG! I sure hope I’m the lucky #1,000,000. I never win any contests like this.

  5. avatar SkyMan77 says:

    You can’t win if you don’t play… Good luck everybody…

    1. avatar Burd Turglar says:


      1,000,000th get!

    2. avatar utdmatt says:

      Swing batter batter.

  6. avatar Matthew O'Connor says:

    I’m curious to see how long it will take.

    1. avatar TheBear says:

      I’m guessing a month or so. God has a sense of humor so it’ll probably be one of the occasional trolls too… or the folks who rite Like THIS and say racist stuff.

      1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        “… it’ll probably be one of the occasional trolls too …”

        Oh, that would totally suck!

        TTAG staff: please update the rules (all one of them) to exclude trolls.

        Thank you!

  7. avatar Toby in KS says:

    me me me! pick me!

  8. avatar michael nieto says:

    ur inviting bots robert

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      I’m sure there’s an unspoken rule that folks spamming meaningless comments will at best have those comments disqualified, and at worst have themselves disqualified.

      1. avatar Accur81 says:

        Oops. I just made a dumb comment down below.

        Congrats to TTAG for both the content, interaction of the commenters, and the fact that dissenting opinions can be freely given.

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Oh, I’m not making the rules. I’m just guessing. WordPress’s native flood control will keep people from really spamming.

      2. avatar JasonM says:

        If that is going to be a rule, RF should speak up now, because I’m already working on a Python script that continuously posts random comments about MDA, Bloomberg, or repealing the NFA.

        1. avatar Ing says:

          Somebody beat you to the punch. Looks to me like 30% of TTAG’s comments already come from that very script.

        2. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Heh. He forgot “Obummer” on that list.

        3. avatar lurker_of_lurkiness says:

          yes thats right 00

    2. avatar No_Smoking says:

      i’m not a bot =)

      1. avatar lurker_of_lurkiness says:

        yes thats right 01

  9. avatar MojoRonin says:

    Gopher snorkle.

    Just to have the millionth comment be odd.

  10. avatar Rob says:

    I enjoy reading TTAG, thank you guys for all you do.

    1. avatar Julio says:

      I definitely read more often than I post. That being said, I appreciate all of the work that goes into running this site. It’s always interesting to read the variety of opinions and backgrounds expressed by others. Keep up the great work.

  11. avatar JWM says:

    Finally, a giveaway I can get behind. Awarding an ar muzzle break to an avowed ar hater isn’t much incentive.

  12. avatar Elysium says:

    I’m a visitor at least two or three times a day. Farago and crew, keep up the great job. Hopefully this pistol is on the CA roster. =(

    1. avatar JWM says:

      Up to 700 bucks for a gun of our choice. I would put it on a Smith or ruger revolver. Living large in CA.

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

        For your sake I hope that’s not $700 MSRP, that’s going to really cut it down with both Smith and Ruger. Also, not all of the Ruger revolvers are CA legal. Earlier this year I picked up a stainless 6″ GP100 because I liked my 3″ Wiley Clapp model so much. The 6″ is CA legal the Wiley Clapp is not. I’m guessing the Smiths all are because of the Hillary hole.

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

          And since we’re running up the comment count;

          I went out the other day and worked on my draw and shoot skills (which I usually ignore) with the WC and the Double Tap hot loads I carry. I set up a target at 10 yards and another at 25, drew and shot double action at the 10 yard target and then 2 single action shots at the 25 yards as fast as I could, with predictably disappointing results. So I did the same thing taking my time with the other 3 rounds. The DA shot was about 4 inches directly below the bullseye and one of the SA shots hit directly in the bullseye with the other about an inch high. At 25 yards standing unsupported.

          You can’t go wrong with the GP100.

  13. avatar William Walker says:

    Not a bot….Error in Comment Subroutine……REBOOTING!

    1. avatar Donald Rowe says:

      Love reading the stories on here every day. Keep up the awesome job.

  14. avatar Nick B. says:

    Hmm…now to pick something good that’s actually on the roster…

  15. avatar Chris in Sc says:

    First comment ever, more will follow. Me likey a free boomstick.

  16. avatar justin says:

    Oooooh prizes. Sounds like a good time.

  17. avatar Paul G says:

    Only $700? That eliminates a lot of likely candidates.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      And yet, two of my favorite guns were only around $350.

      1. avatar Morgan Gatorsee says:

        And those are?
        /me crosses fingers you don’t say Sigma

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          My SIG Mosquito and my 10/22.

        2. avatar JWM says:

          My Sigma, which cost a lot less than 350, is my least favorite gun. It does everything it’s supposed to, everytime it’s supposed to. Without fail.

          But it has the personality of a Glock brand Glock. I’ve seen mud pies that had more pizzaz. I keep it cause it works. Period.

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

          I love my wife’s Sig Mosquito. It’s the perfect gun for malfunction drills. No need to slip in a snap cap.

  18. avatar Tex300BLK says:


    But I could buy like 15 guns for that! Sheesh you guys are a bunch of elitists a who only review expensive guns.

    All of my guns have a purpose, I wouldn’t take a $700 gun if someone gave it to m… Oh wait, nm.

  19. avatar Marc says:

    Let’s do this!

  20. avatar NOVA_Bullitt says:

    I’ll play your game, Trebek…

    1. avatar Julio says:

      I miss those SNL skits. Classic.

    2. avatar Jon in CO says:

      I was just watching some of those earlier today. Sick Malard and all.

  21. avatar Andrew says:

    Sounds pretty good to me!

  22. avatar SouthernPatriot says:

    Now my fingers are tripping over one another, like my tongue getting tangled sometimes..

    A free gun! Who can’t use another gun around nowadays?! Go for the million!

  23. avatar Dustin says:

    A comment on the actual website and not facebook, right?

  24. avatar Roy says:

    Whew comments!

  25. avatar pwrserge says:

    There ain’t no such thing as a free gun.

    1. avatar Gran says:

      A new Flock – all for the low low cost of 4,000 posts!

      1. avatar Gran says:

        Glock – not Flock – autocorrect.

        A new flock of sheep would probaby be worth more than a Glock though.

        1. avatar John in Ohio says:

          Goats seem to be the money right now. Every other farm around us has goats instead of the usual sheep and cattle. We started noticing about the time our dairy herd returned to the pastures. But, a flock of Glock brand Glocks would be worth something. They would go nicely with my truck boat truck.

  26. avatar bradlee says:

    I didn’t know free things came this easy. Awesome!

  27. avatar Jason says:

    Here’s hoping for a nice shiny new Springfield XDs 4.0 🙂

  28. avatar Mike says:

    Best of luck to everyone… especially me!

  29. avatar george from fort worth says:

    whoo hoo !!!!!

    thanx going to whomever conceived this idea.

  30. avatar Tactical mall ninja says:

    3379 to go……

  31. avatar Jeremy says:

    The odds shall be forever in our favor…

  32. avatar Sian says:

    Great giveaway, Robert. Good luck to everyone!

  33. avatar John B says:

    Thank you, TTAG, for such a generous gesture!
    Best of luck to all in this contest but a win by some lucky resident of a blue, liberal, socialist gun grabber’s paradise would maximize the flow of liberal tears.

  34. avatar Kerry says:

    What number am I?

    1. avatar Dustin says:

      Number 007

  35. avatar Mae West says:

    Should be quick.

  36. avatar Bob H says:

    Count me in!

  37. avatar Tom Hinderer says:

    This is awesome!

  38. avatar Bluesman007 says:

    $700 MSRP…? Or Chicago MLK street …

  39. avatar Mike says:

    Just this thread? Or do comments in other threads count towards the 1m total?

    1. avatar Ing says:

      It’s gonna have to be some other thread. Even if this article got 400+ comments, they’d still be 3,000 short.

      My guess is that it’ll take about 2 weeks to hit the magic number (unless the comment volume increases exponentially for some mysterious reason).

    2. avatar Matt in FL says:

      On the site. Anywhere on the site.

  40. avatar AZMark says:

    M&P 9 please.

    1. avatar Davis Thompson says:

      I have one. You will love it.

    2. avatar Reef Blastbody says:

      I’ve got 2 M&Ps, a .40S&W police trade in off CDNN and a near-as-makes-no-difference-to-new C.O.R.E. 9MM with an RM05 dot that I picked up from Cabelas Gun Library. Love em both. I’m looking into Apex triggers/sears for both of them. The police trade in especially, as it’s got some pronounced feeback through the trigger. Pad of my index finger tingles after a few magazines through it.

      1. avatar Retired LEO says:

        I bought 2 trade-ins from Bud’s for $710 shipped. Put an Apex in 1 left the other stock. Difference is Night & Day. I don’t know why but the ones for LE sales seem a lot cheaper made than commercial. I know they come off the same line but, assembly seems more hurried with less care. 357Sig trades are starting to show up.RUN from them 2 local pawn shops have purchased them for the sale case. Called me when they came in and asked for a checkout, frames had cracked on 9 of 10 #10 had the striker fall out into my hand soon as slide cane off. Just to pressured a round for that polymer pistol. What’s really amazing all were purchased in 2012 have had approximately 300 rounds fired, armorers cleaned & lubes them returned back to the officer holstered until next qualifying.

  41. avatar Another Robert says:

    That’s a thoughtful thing to do, RF.

  42. avatar Bobby says:

    Common lucky million

    Love the articles you guys write.

  44. avatar SteveX says:

  45. avatar Other Chris says:

    What a play for comments. But I’m doing it anyhow. Because guns.

  47. avatar Scott in IA says:

  48. avatar Model 31 says:

    Comment “999,999” here I come!

    1. avatar Josh H says:

      Don’t feel bad, with my luck I’ll be 1,000,001.

  50. avatar Mason says:

    I suddenly feel more inclined to chime in

  51. avatar Excedrine says:

    I’m thinking this contest will be done before next week is out. 😉 I probably won’t win, though. ;(

  52. avatar Robert Bub says:


    1. avatar Michael says:

      Comment for the win

  53. avatar Rich says:

    Congrats on getting to 1 million comments. That’s quite a lot!

  54. avatar Davis Thompson says:

    I’m curious if comments work into the formula for internet revenue in any way.

  55. avatar sh00k says:

    Hopefully this is 1million!!

  56. avatar N. Harris says:

    Love TTAG,
    Wish Robert still had TTAC.

  57. avatar Paul53 says:

    Wont do me any good. Only thing I’ve ever won was the Mexican Lottery. I get one dollar every year for a million years!

  58. avatar Steve Clark says:

    Hmmmmm….10mm or .45?

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      .40 S&W. The only choice.

      Twice as good if fired from a Springfield XD-something.

  59. avatar HES says:

    At the end of the day this is all about good marketing to drive traffic even higher. Not it’s not going to happen now, but it’s effective

  60. avatar Steve Clark says:

    Or 500 S&W?

  61. avatar JackieO says:

    Umh….How’d I do ?

  62. avatar Ross says:

    Oh to comment for comments sake.

  63. avatar Steve Clark says:

    Or 5.7mm?

  64. avatar Davis Thompson says:

    Does it have to be a gun? Or could it be 700 clams worth of other gear. Or was that answered in the article anyway and I just didn’t see it. No matter. You all know why I’m commenting right now.

  65. avatar Mr. Antisocial Guy says:

    And the chances of my winning the gun are about as slim as the sharp edge of a razor blade. And speaking of Slim (Pickens) I can only feel like his character in the movie Blazing Saddles when instead of Bart (the black hero) being hung like he hoped, had been made the new sheriff of Rock Ridge. When he said, “I am depressed”. ~Taggart (Slim Pickens)

    Thanks, Robert! Great idea!

    1. avatar Michael says:

      Commenting for the win

  67. avatar marvin says:

    This is a great idea. I read the comments to every story and usually find them to be just as good as the story itself.

    Only one percent? Geez, it’s not even needed to become a member. Just put down a name, a website, and Viola! More people must have something to say.

    Hmm, $700 on any gun. Well, I have a Colt Delta Elite 10mm on lay away. Could it go for that?

  69. avatar John McDonough says:

    Did I win???? I would love to win!!!!!!

  70. avatar Josh says:

    I always enjoy TTAGs daily posts. All of them

  71. avatar Jean says:

    Thanks for all you do in support of the Second Amendment!!!

  72. avatar Matt Lambdin says:

    I can’t count the number of posts I’ve show ir emailed to family, friends, or neighbors….but your site has spread the real TRUTH about us people of the gun. Thank you for the “Should have been a defensive gun use” posts and any of the truths about the civilian disarmament thugs an their nonesense.

  73. avatar cyrano says:

    Comment 1 millionth

  74. avatar Carlos says:

    Hmm very interesting.

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      Ooh, a rival arises.

  75. avatar Gunr says:

    Wouldn’t it be a bitch if somebody won the gun, and couldn’t pass the background check!

  76. avatar D.J. says:

    I probably won’t win. I comment very seldom but love reading several times a day. Congratulations to whoever wins!

    On a different note… I was watching From Dusk Till Dawn today for probably the millionth time and am currently listening to the Selma Hayek dance. I came to 2 conclusions. The first is that someone should open up an actual strip bar called the Titty Twister and the second is that TTAG should do a review of the revolver concept gun that Sex Machine uses in the movie. I know it wouldn’t probably be a very effective firearm but would be interested to read someone’s review. Definitely would bring a new meaning to the term blue balls

  77. avatar MB VA says:

    Shiz just got real.

  78. avatar Chris says:

    Umm cz 75 please

  79. avatar Matthew Howe says:

    I tend to keep low profile in terms of commenting under my own name on political websites, but the chance at a new gun has smoked me out. Well played, Robert. Well played.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Just keep in mind that the name doesn’t have to be real, just the email address, so they can reach you if you win.

  80. avatar Matthew Howe says:

    Of course, what’s to stop the TTAG boys from just picking one at random and calling it the millionth?

    1. avatar ThomasR says:

      Oh, yee of little faith.

  81. avatar hobbez says:

    In for the win!

  82. avatar greaterfool says:

    I’d to win a Sig 😉

  83. avatar Dave L says:

    Hey I’m in Massachusetts, so if I win make sure it has been deemed “safe” by the AG. No Glock, Springfield, Kimber, etc, etc, etc……..

  84. avatar Henry Kadoch says:

    Well, that’s something I can sink my teeth into! Congratulations for this amazing site and the large following.

  85. avatar Eliott says:

    Does that 700 include taxes/FFL fees?

  86. avatar marvin says:

    Only about 4,275 to go……roughly

  87. avatar CarlosT says:

    So, I’ve been pondering the CZ75B-SA, people. Thoughts?

    1. avatar SteveInCO says:

      A damned fine choice. Carry one myself. (Sometimes I go for the same thing in compact.)

  88. avatar hobbez says:

    I just got my Ghost Gunner in the mail. If I promise to write an article, will that help me win?

    1. avatar Nick Leghorn says:

      No, but we have other ways of encouraging you to write 😉

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

        Why does that conjure up images of the creepy Nazi guy from Raiders of the Lost Ark?

    i do enjoy this website, I check multiple times a day. This is my go to site for reviews and news. Keep it up guys I’m happy to be one of the armed intelligencia

      Same here.

  90. avatar Matthew Howe says:

    So how many people are sitting here refreshing the page and watching that little red number in the lower right change?

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

    Hmm… do I finally break down and get an AR or a 1911…

  92. avatar Adam Harper says:

    I have always found the site informative. Good job either way.

  93. avatar SD3 says:

    TTAG…getting you ready for the “Baltimore Prom”, since 2008!

  94. avatar marvin2584 says:

    So many choices!!!

  95. avatar Rob B. says:

    I enjoy TTAG’s equal and usually fair writing!!!
    I already know what I’d want!

  96. avatar Chad says:

    Love TTAG! Read it every time I get a spare minute.

  97. avatar Bob in Washington says:

    My favorite gun blog and am constantly recommending it to new and old shooters alike.

  98. avatar Martin says:

    I would say TANSTAAFL but that is about lunch not free guns 🙂

  99. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

    At current rates it’ll be several days to a couple weeks before hitting the big one. That said, some comments will be deleted for various reasons, usually related to spamming. So you can never be too sure just HOW close they’re getting anyway. Don’t worry too much and enjoy the discussion is all I got to say. Somebody’s gotta win, ya know.

    If it happens to be me, I’d probably put that 700 down towards a new Super Redhawk in .454 with a 9.5″ barrel if I can find one. I had one with the 7.5″ barrel, sold it back to a friend and regretted it ever since.


    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      I would lean toward the shorter end of that spectrum you gave. That said, I don’t think it’ll happen before I get out of Age of Ultron tonight.

    2. avatar Matthew Howe says:

      Don’t forget other, older posts will garner some comments too…

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        Correct, but the WordPress backend shows the comments coming in in strict sequential order, newest at the top, regardless of what post the comments are left to. Given the timeframe involved, I’d place a strong bet that the millionth comment will not actually be in this post.

      It’s not necessary to create an account to leave a comment. You can, but it’s not necessary. The account you’re creating doesn’t allow you any more access, it just creates a cookie that saves your login name and email address, so you don’t have to continually fill out the fields below.

    Well, I guess this is one way to force us dust bunnies out from under the sofa. Gaaahh, the light, it burns my eyes!

  102. avatar SpeleoFool says:

    Guess I’ll have to start showing up more often. 🙂

    Regardless, 1M comments is impressive. Congrats to TTAG for the traffic and activity and congrats in advance to the lucky soul who posts the magic post. I’m curious about what gun gets picked and where it ends up going.

    Also, could you choose, say, 2 S&W shields if you find a seller for under $350? 😉

  103. avatar Branden says:

    You guys are awesome.

    This will probably be a busy post.

  104. avatar Matthew Howe says:

    WordPress tells me I’m posting comments too quickly. And what did they think was going to happen?

  105. avatar Alaninfl says:

    Nice! How about for someone hitting 1,000,001?

  106. avatar Kaleb says:

    Keep up the good work boys!!!

  107. avatar Steve from Downtown Canada says:

    Hmmm, I hope your friendly gun-loving Canuck neighbours are eligible!

  108. avatar Will P. says:

    WOOT! I can always use another gun! I’ve been a daily reader for the past three years. Love all of your insight, and always check here for firearm reviews before I buy.

  109. avatar Ivan says:

    I’ve been lurking on this site for about half a year and I love the articles. The brutally honest gun reviews are something that no in else does and I enjoy reading the comments. I’m really glad to hear that TTAG is doing something for the readers.

  110. Way to tired to do the math. So here is to TTAG and the winner, get yourself a great firearm.

  111. avatar marvin2584 says:

    OK thanks Matt…..I guess I have an account now anyway ha.

  112. avatar Mike says:

    I have a few possible candidates. I never win anything gun related. Maybe my luck will change?

  113. avatar Retired LEO says:

    Could sure use a new Glock since all my local Blue Box dealers have grown a pair not giving them 4473 info. I don’t get a basic for $400 but they still do paper 4473’s worth the $250 per extra.

  114. avatar Will from Oregon says:

    Can I have several hi points instead?

  115. avatar Matt in FL says:

    Oh, and for the record, though I’ve been “not a writer” for this site longer than I was a writer, I’m not in the running for this. I’m not leaving all these comments because I’m trying to win, it’s just because I’m bored and this thread is interesting. If by some chance my comment is the one that breaks 7 digits (it won’t be), I’m passing. The fix is most assuredly not in.

    1. avatar cane says:

      I am really curious what the winner will pick. I also would like to know how much this increases comments.

  116. avatar JM says:

    You guys run a good site. Here’s to many more reviews and articles!


  117. avatar Joe Easter says:

    Here’s rolling the dice!

  118. avatar Rikoshay says:

    Do comments about others grammar skills, spelling and punctuation count?

    1. avatar kapeltam says:

      Shouldn’t there be an apostrophe somewhere in “others”? 😀

  119. avatar Harrison says:

    This is an awesome idea. I totally want to win lol

  120. avatar Bud says:

    It has to be me.

    I haven’t bought a new gun since January because “Her Worship” is hanging onto all of the disposable income.

    Expect more stupid comments like this on every single new thread that is started because seriously, this is my only hope of getting anything new that is shootable for the rest of the year.

    On to the next thread!

  121. avatar Retired LEO says:

    BTW have it on good authority that those that are sending DIGs back for $129 refurbishment specials are getting a special deal. A retest fired bullet & record keeping. Personally I’m redoing my springs & I use big dot 24/7 sights anyhow. Just something too think about.

  122. avatar drf says:

    Here’s to a great site to which I’ve been pleased to contribute ever so slightly! And here’s to getting in line trying to be the millionth!

  123. avatar Kent W says:

    Hello from the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m glad that I found this thread you all keep me sane. Thanks

  124. avatar Bernard says:

    Oohh, me, me.

  127. avatar MIKE CROGNALE says:

    I’m in it.

  128. avatar John says:

    I generally have pretty bad luck so maybe this will be a turnaround point for me. Or not lol

  129. avatar Retired LEO says:

    We all don’t always agree but that’s the beauty of the constitution, not just the 2nd amendment but the entire document we can all have our say. Generally without worrying about being stoned.

  130. avatar Ken Jones says:

    Well Darn, might be a good chance to get grail gun! I’m in!

  131. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    I comment a ridiculous amount. My luck it wouldn’t post because of one of the glitch times. Which is way too often…

  132. avatar Chris says:

    I’d be curious when this is all finished how long it took from the posting of this contest to the 1,000,000th post

  133. avatar Phil says:

    Long time reader, first time commenting though.

  134. avatar Gregory says:

  135. avatar Tile floor says:

  136. avatar Racast says:

  137. avatar MeRp says:

    Well I doubt this is it, but might as well comment. 😉

  138. avatar Hello World says:

    Is it a Perazzi or Krieghoff? Because they would be awesome.

  139. avatar Dean says:

    Count me in on this one…

  140. avatar John Thomas says:

    good luck, everyone!

  141. avatar Kelly says:

    Interesting. So TTAG must have an internal counter that we cant see.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      That would be correct.

  142. avatar Bruce Badger says:

    How’d I do? Ticker tape? Dancing girls?


  143. avatar Ben says:

    Read TTAG everyday but never comment. Now is as good a time as any.

  144. avatar angryaz says:

    We meet again numbers you and math have bullied me for the last time!

  145. avatar Tom from Pennsyltucky says:

    $700 I really REALLY could use that. hrmmmm, just what to pick if i get it
    HRMMMM, what to get, if i even get it that is.

    1. avatar Zeke says:

      I found you, Tom. Also Congrats to TTAG. From equipment reviews to current events, you present a rational person’s perspective in an irrational, politically-correct, god-forbid-we-step-on-your-toes, world

  146. avatar Scott Lloyd says:

    Here’s to 10 million more words.

  147. avatar Leah says:

    Pick me! I don’t own a gun yet!

  148. avatar No_Smoking says:

    how do you see what the count is at? =) I’d love to win!

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Until tomorrow gets here and several more posts show up, you could take the number in the post above, and add to it the number of comments in this post. That’d get you in the ballpark.

      1. avatar No_Smoking says:

        So its a million comments in THIS thread and not site wide comments?

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:

          Lol, no, not in this thread.

        2. avatar No_Smoking says:

          ah, ok thank goodness =D

  149. avatar DrewR55 says:

    That’s pretty cool, guys! I’ve been debating the purchase of another handgun and this’ll take care of that nicely. Question: if the winner decided could he add cash to the amount to make a larger purchase? Either way, this is pretty awesome.

  150. avatar Last Marine out says:

    I like the free stuff. and a new gun would be great, and let,s not forget the free ball caps or coffee cups or tee shirts that some gun groups give you (cost 14.95 ) shipping well that’s not real free. well is free no longer free?? FREEDOM was never free. so keep fighting for 2A… and LOL

  151. avatar David says:

    A good gun is always appreciated. Especially, if I have the one millionth comment.

  152. avatar StuckInCT says:

    For the millionth time…..oh..yeah…I guess this is it.

  156. avatar Adrik says:

    I gotta say; this is the best gun site I have ever visited. keep it up for another 1 million comments guys.

  157. avatar John in Ohio says:

    Wow, that’s a cool idea for a contest. Thanks!

    1. avatar Steve Truffer says:

      Near as I can tell, we’re about 90 off.

      1. avatar John in Ohio says:

        I figured that we were thousands off because in the article…

        As of this writing, we’re at 996,595 comments.

        1. avatar Vhyrus says:

          OMFG I thought we were only like 400 off!

        2. avatar John in Ohio says:

          @Vhyrus: So did I at first. I looked at the number again. Apparently, I only payed attention to the last three digits the first time around. lol

  184. avatar Retired LEO says:

    Since my life has turned into a bad country song I can guarantee I have to win. We had to put our 13 y/o dog the other day, I have had a child rapist that just did 14 years move next door in a neighbourhood of young children. He found out I was a cop & still have arrest power. In the middle of euthanasia a car next to the vet caught fire I called 911 the dispatcher tells me to have them push towards the c-stores gas tanks. The pet mortuary can’t pick up the remains so had to bring him home pack in bags of Ice, with a crying child & dogs & cats trying to wake him up. Not to mention death threats against white cops even retired. Like I said a country song. God what next.

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      Sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my prayers, friend.

  185. avatar Steve Truffer says:

    pushing up the number.

  186. avatar Steffen says:

    It figures there’s a massive number of comments on this one. Mr. Farago, you need to do a follow-up later to ensure the winner makes a purchase.

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      Pics or it didn’t happen, RF! Preferably the winner OCing past a non-compliant gunbuster sign. 😀

  232. avatar Silentbrick says:

  233. avatar Michigunner says:

    Just one more gun and my collction is complete….

  234. avatar General Zod says:

    One millionth on this topic, or overall?

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      It has to be overall because of the quote from the article (below) and Matt or someone in these comments verified that it’s overall.

      As of this writing, we’re at 996,595 comments.

  235. avatar Gran says:

    We are at about 997,000 comments. We have probably 4 – 5 more articles before getting 1,000,000.

    Every American should have a gun as long as they don’t have a mental problem.

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      Well then, most people won’t have a gun because some sort of mental problem, however slight, is common at some point in a person’s life. If the individual is truly incompetent then that might be another matter.

    Now that the site is in a giving mood i would like to comment 😉 A Glock 21 I must have… 🙂

    Well said, Mr. Farago. As usual.

  278. avatar Sovereign says:

    Free gun please 😀

  279. avatar Yer Boy says:

    Would love a new piece right about now. Summer is for shootin!

  280. avatar Mecha75 says:

    Wow. Are we trying to hit a million comments in this article alone?

    1. avatar Paul G says:

      Nah, just a few thousand.

  281. avatar younggun21 says:

    Well, might as well give it a whirl.

  282. avatar Gary says:

    I hope I’m not late to the party. I’m thinking I’d like a new rifle in .30-06… or a handgun…. or a shotgun….

  283. avatar JWM says:

    And now, for something completely different.

  284. avatar JohnnyG says:

    I’d love a nice AK 🙂

  285. avatar Heretical Politik says:

    Do we know who won?

  286. avatar Red in Texas says:

    Well, I won a Banelli Legacy in a raffle last week. Let’s see how lucky I am

  287. avatar Nate says:

    How about now?

  288. avatar Nate says:

    What about this time?

  289. avatar Geoff PR says:

    What kind of gun will it be?

    Can I have it shipped to Firearm Concierge?

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      I have to admit, I laughed out loud.


  290. avatar Brett says:

    I’ll take a stab at it!

  291. avatar RetLEO says:

    I’m in. If I win, you can keep the gun provided you raffle it off with proceeds going to a good pro-2a cause.

  292. avatar Tile floor says:

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again- daddy needs a new gp-100

  293. avatar Yama says:

    I’ve been needing an AR so perfect timing!

  294. avatar Nic Richardson says:

    one millionth


  295. avatar Chalk says:

    The comments are sometimes as good as the articles… sometimes

  296. avatar Nick Meyer says:

    Got my fingers crossed

  297. avatar Frank Minchey says:

    Performance center m&p

  298. avatar godsend1 says:

    Free is good!

  299. avatar CJ Minnesota says:

    So many comments, so little time to read them all!

  300. avatar Roland says:

    Ooooh. Sounds nice!

    I’ll take a Cobra 380! (I’m kidding, I won’t take one of those. If brought to my doorstep, I would refuse delivery)

  301. avatar Austin says:

    Here is hoping for a win!

  302. avatar Derek says:

    For 2nd admenendment sake hope I’m lucky 1,000,000.

  303. avatar Richard Wyse says:


    Everyone wins something like this in their life time, might as well try!

  304. avatar Richard Reagan says:

    It sure would be nice to win a nice new firearm. Anyone have their eyes on something specific?

  305. avatar td says:

    I would pick a 1911

  306. avatar TurdyTurdy says:

    Sweet. A new Hi-Point for me!

  307. avatar S.CROCK says:

    Prepare to sift through many filler comments from this point on.

  308. avatar Jeff Hunt says:

    Heck, I’m in. 8^) I’ll throw in a comment a friend said last week. He knows I conceal carry and remarked how most CCW folks give in to laziness and stop carrying. He asked if I occasionally left my weapon in the safe. I said “never” because I never know when the time will come when I need it. Even when watching TV it’s on my hip, and on the window where I can grab from the shower if need be. Guess I surprised him with my answer.

  309. avatar Ray says:

    Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

  310. avatar ray says:

    Great site! and I like free stuff

  311. avatar Matt Pollock says:

  312. avatar dMo says:

    Yesssssss!!! 1Millioooooonth Comment! *insert Dr. Evil Grin & Pinky*

  313. avatar Irish1776 says:

    Somewhere out there, some guy is doing his best to figure out exactly when to post based on the authors comment count, while not taking into account all of the other comments in other threads.

  314. avatar Q says:

    I’m here to collect.

  315. avatar marvin2584 says:

    There’s a few more comments here than on the other articles. Hmmmm…….I wonder what the draw is???

  316. avatar Last Marine out says:

    so Robert looks like you may set a record is the amount of comments , still this is good for t.t.a.g. and keep up the good work for 2A.

  317. avatar TT says:

    Well, this should drive the quality of the comments way up!

  318. avatar Last Marine out says:

    I like the gun reviews best…and free is great too.

  319. avatar working4change says:


  320. avatar working4change says:

    would be to funny to win this when i never win stuff

  321. avatar David says:

    I sign up for all kinds of contests but I never win!

  322. avatar Daniel S says:

    Count me in. Better yet, count me 1,000,000

  323. avatar Hoyaboyd says:

    With 700 I could buy 2 or 3 guns that I would be happy with

  324. avatar WJ762 says:

    I seldom comment, but I think I’ll make an extra effort on this one.

  325. avatar Andy s says:

    Did I win?

  326. avatar Retired LEO says:

    Ad a minority I.e. White, Male, Christian, Gun Owning, Believer in the Constitution, American on a Broken Income I have my fingers crossed. I say broken as the POTUS sure didn’t fix Social Security Disability. Plus the Communist Chinese are buying the entire city I live in.

  327. avatar LCB says:

    Test test test…is this thing turned on??? 🙂

  328. avatar Ian Mason says:

    Thank you for all the work you do!

  329. avatar GuyFromV says:


  330. avatar GuyFromV says:

    I think Michael won, if I counted right.

    edit: lol, I didn’t…2 other topics above this one.

  331. avatar Governmentknowsbest says:

    I’ll take a Glock…..

  332. avatar Silentbrick says:

    You know, the wife was rather irked her essay didn’t win her that FN pistol.I’m sure she’d be happy if TTAG made it up to her:p

  333. avatar What about Bob says:

    A million you say?

  334. avatar Max says:

    Reply to see if I’ve won ( Heeeeeeere), Lol 🙂

  335. avatar Last Marine out says:

    Robert, What is your take on the coming ( not legal ) JEDE HELM military training stuff in Texas to start this July 15, with road blocks , train box cars with chains to lock up people closed Walmart stores to be used as FEMA CAMPS, etc, etc, and if stopped and they want to take your CCW pistol to check it out …come on what do you THINK???????????

    1. avatar Retired LEO says:

      Last I know you asked for Robert but the particular” exercise” will affect us all. I personally forsee:
      Gold Stars on clothing, tattoo numbers on arms they may not have names like Dachau or Auschwitz but the United States has precedent with the Japanese.
      My area has roughly 90 operating Golf Courses since Christmas the Communist Chinese Government has purchased 52. They have purchased 19 square miles of 46 in the county. 3 of the largest hotels the amusement park and countless small motels (excess of 60). They are planning similar hurricane disaster drills locally.

      I found wal-Mart with Sig ammo, .40 & 9mm+ .308 and spam cans of. 223 & 7.62x54R ammo cheap. Picked all of it up they had. I’m vacuum packaging it today along with med supplies that came in and prepping PVC storage casings with dessicant packs. Also spare springs, pistol mags etc…in a load of grease

  336. avatar shawn says:

    this will be interesting

  337. avatar 7350 says:

    Congratulations on another successful website. I’m here almost everyday, and I enjoy the comments as much as the articles. Keep up the good work.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:


      1. avatar John in Ohio says:

        Or 0x1E49. Right, Matt? 😉

        1. avatar Matt in FL says:


  341. avatar Charles Ewing says:

    I never win but for a new gun I’ll try just about any thing.

  342. avatar Jason says:

    How about a G43? 🙂

  343. avatar Brandon says:

    Keep up the good work!

  344. avatar Dale says:

    A free gun is better than no gun.

  345. avatar Taylor TX says:

    A little late to the party but whatever, thanks for giving me something to waste time with everyday 🙂

  346. avatar What About Bob says:

    Shoes for the kids, gun. Shoes, gun….

    Help me have cake and eat it too!

  347. avatar Hurdyhurdy says:

    this should be interesting. Long time reader, first time poster. Wuzzup?!?!

  348. avatar William says:

    One Millionth

  351. avatar No_Smoking says:

    So who won? =)

  352. avatar Newcastle3 says:

    Thanks for giving something back to everyone who supports your site.

  353. avatar No_Smoking says:

    I was thinking if I won, what would I get….maybe a sig p238

  354. avatar Eric says:

    Did I win?

  355. avatar luke kline says:

    I’m late to the party, but what the hell, worth a shot!

  356. avatar Kevin says:

    Dolphin titties…

    Or should I just post “did I win?” 4,000 times..

  357. avatar JWM says:

    Winner! Winner! ChickenDinner! Ooops, my bad. Just practicing my acceptence speech. Didn’t realize I was talking out loud.

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      wow, what an amazing speech. you are like Churchill.

      1. avatar JWM says:

        My retirement speech, in it’s entirety. “Phuck you, phuck you and especially phuck you.” Imagine me saying that whilst pointing at different individuals.

        1. avatar Aaron says:

          I was wrong about you – you aren’t like Churchill, you are like Shakespeare!

  358. avatar Silentbrick says:

    I suspect it’ll actually happen at 4am or so, maybe even a couple of days from now as 4,000 comments is alot considering most here generate around 200 or so comments. Even with the boost from this thread it will take some time.

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      let me help move this along with another post!

      1. avatar Jake T says:

        I think it will pick up even more in the last few hrs and be done this evening

      2. avatar Jake T says:

        I think it will pick up even more in the last few hrs and be done this evening. Ppl are gonna be making posts every few min to try and win.

        1. avatar Aaron says:

          well, let me help yet again!

  359. avatar Bud says:

    Still here and hoping to get a Sig P320 since I didn’t win that contest or just as good, an FNS-9 since I didn’t win that contest either


    I am beginning to see a pattern emerging

    1. avatar Last Marine out says:

      the AR or AK pistols sound good for the $700. but no custom pistols for $700…

  360. avatar Bud says:

    It’s not going to take a couple of minutes to add a new post. I did this one in 30 seconds flat

  361. avatar foo dog says:

    Pick me, pick me!

  362. avatar Jason Mills says:

    I would like a M&P in .40 and a M&P shield in .40

  363. avatar Matt T says:

    On our way to 1 million more comments than any video posted by Mom’s Demand Action!

  364. avatar John P. says:

    I don’t think the winner will pop up THAT quickly. I just hope it’s a meatier post than “+1” or “^ this.”

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      true dat

  365. avatar Ed says:

    we need some kind of counter on the main page

  366. avatar David says:

    Wonder where the count is now?

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      you were 999,999. So close!

  367. avatar Silentbrick says:

    Are we there yet?

    Oh and the wife is REALLY wanting a new gun. And I don’t think she’d run with “I’ll get a new one and give you the XDM. Cause you know, I’ve touched it already, so it’s not ‘her’s’.

  368. avatar foo dog says:


    you can stop now, I think I won.

  369. avatar foo dog says:

    j.k.! win win win anyway!

  370. avatar flatfootedman says:

    Semper Erectus

  371. avatar foo dog says:

    thinking about page views and so on-

    you need one of those widgets or rows at the bottom of the page that says “10 stupid things that celebrities did.”

    or 10 weapons that…

  372. avatar foo dog says:

    watch this-

  373. avatar foo dog says:

    Ironically, an article here, at PuffHo’s- the poster child for faux content

    1. avatar foo dog says:

      Where Halliday blogs…unexpectedly!

  374. avatar foo dog says:

    hehe…see what I did there?

  375. avatar foo dog says:

    So, I’m thinking, I will give Ryan’s technique a try here….

    anonymous email…check.
    small blog…check
    catchy story….Mom submits to billionaire’s domination by obeying his every PR spinning order…
    catchy title…50 Shades of Nanny

  376. avatar foo dog says:

    ok, now heading off to another place to “trade it up the chain”…

  377. avatar dMo says:

    oh yes, 1 million here I come!

  378. avatar Roymond says:

    Wow — what a way to make a post guaranteed to rank in the top ten for comments.

  379. avatar Frank says:

    Did I win yet.

  380. avatar JWM says:

    Awwwwww…….I can’t take the suspense and tension any longer!

  381. avatar Max says:

    Millionth yet? 🙂

  382. avatar Frank says:

    How bout now.

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      not quite

    2. avatar Aaron says:


  383. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

    Few more days, guys.


  384. avatar J says:

    Ba Boom! Now what do I get, and when do I get it?

  385. avatar Robb says:

    Glock 43 here I come!

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      RIA budget 1911 here I come!

      i’d take a G43, but already have a Kahr CM9, which came out first. But one can never have too many 1911 variants. A 1911 is living history that still works great.

  386. avatar Rokurota says:

    Does the millionth comment have to be on this thread? How do you know which one is the millionth? Do replies to other comments count? What some people will do for a free gun. Get a job, slackas.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      No. The WordPress back end keeps count. Yes. I have a job, but a free gun would still be welcome; mind your own business.

      1. avatar John in Ohio says:

        Yeah, I’d be genuinely surprised if the millionth post actually hits in this thread.

        Are we there yet? I need to use the restroom. Can we stop at McDonalds? Robert won’t stay on his side!

  387. avatar nelson says:

    Ill throw my name in the hat.
    Starting a new job and will need to switch to something smaller for EDC. Was thinking a subsidized PM9 would be pretty slick.

  388. avatar Mad Cow says:

    I would laugh/cry if the millionth comment was “first!!”.

    1. avatar Paul G says:

      Shannon Watts should be notified so she can try and get in on the action.

  389. avatar Steffen says:

    Just checking in…

    1. avatar Last Marine out says:

      so let us know when it has been won!

    2. avatar Last Marine out says:

      can we get 2 guns for the price of one? just asking.

  390. avatar E_chin says:

    gotta inch closer!

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      one step closer than you!

  391. avatar DAvid says:

    Choices, choices.

  392. 9mm is better that 45!
    HK is better than Glock.
    Manual Safties are the way to go.

    There, that should ramp up the comments section. LOL

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      9mm is better than .45…for CC if flat is important to you. .45 ball is way better than 9mm ball. High quality 9mm and .45 hollow points are about equal. 9mm is much lighter (the bullet weighs 1/2 as much). If I had to shoot ball and didn’t have to carry a 100lb rucksack, .45 is my choice. If I carry a pistol as secondary armament, or thickness matters, 9mm is my choice.

      HK, Glock, meh

      manual safeties vs trigger safeties..a trigger safety isn’t a safety, because you have to depress the trigger to fire anyway. If you are ok with that, then that’s your choice.

  393. avatar Logan says:

    Winner maybe? Love the site!

  394. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

    Buds has a Henry in 45/70 for $643…so much want! Question how about a 300 dollar pistol and 1500 rounds for it 😉

  395. avatar Michael says:

    I don’t say much here too often, but ill chime in here for this one!

  396. avatar Tyler B. says:

    You know someone’s gonna try to snipe this…

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      There are more snipers than trees in these woods, my friend. 😀

    2. avatar Aaron says:


      1. avatar Last Marine out says:

  397. avatar Brad says:

    I appreciate your website and the great information you provide here.

  398. avatar Michelle says:

    Well, it’d be stupid to not try. 😛 And thanks for TTAG, for sure, it has made a difference.

    1. avatar nelson says:

      Made a difference, and decreased my overall life productivity by always giving me things to read!

  399. avatar Jon says:

    A new gun would be great! Now, what to get…there are so many options!

  400. avatar Harte says:

    I wanna win!

  401. avatar Harte says:

    Am number 1 million now?

  402. avatar nelson says:

    one last submission before bed? – final exam in Macroeconomics will be interesting tomorrow. maybe i should tell my hyper-liberal, propaganda-spewing, professor why i was tired for the final… TTAG!!!

    1. avatar nelson says:

      i cant help it. one more?

    2. avatar John in Ohio says:

      Good luck on the final and the contest. 🙂

  403. avatar Retired LEO. says:

    Dad says as I’mthe lucky one this is my post Sean P.

  404. avatar JamesinNC says:

    I’m the “once in a blue moon” kinda guy, but I’ll take a shot for a free gun.

  405. avatar jeremy pitts says:

    Annnnnnnnd here goes, please let this be the millionth comment because my wife won’t let me spend money on more guns!

      1. avatar nelson says:

        is Robert going to give any more updates, or are we on our own from now on?

        1. avatar Tom in Georgia says:

          It’s like I said last night – it’ll be a few more days. Even counting all the comments on this particular post. So you might as well go to bed and get a good night’s sleep anyway.


  406. avatar John says:

    I’m your huckleberry.

  407. avatar Terry says:

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

  408. avatar BigDawgBeav says:

    $700 for a gun. There are a few I can think of that fit that criteria

  409. avatar onezero says:

    Here’s another comment. Did I win this time.

  410. avatar RamBam says:

    What the world needs now, is Guns, sweet Guns….

  411. avatar RocketScientist says:

  416. avatar beetle says:

    TTAG has published a few of my articles (about historical guns)…..

  417. avatar Marco P. says:

    Just saw this, hope I’m not too late.

  418. avatar joe b says:

    Gonna give it a whirl

  419. avatar joe b says:

    lets try again

  420. avatar suitcase says:

    Good luck everybody!

  421. avatar M60E3 says:

    I diddn’t read through all the above comments, nut if thos is one mil, glock 20 in 10mm perhaps? Or a 1911? :0

  422. avatar Harte says:

    Did I win?

  423. avatar Jerry says:

    This is fun. Keep writing folks. I hope the cop from Garland wins it. What a handgun sharp shooter he is. Don’t know what brand of gun the police in Garland run.

  424. avatar Jerry says:

    What number is this? I live near Garland. Can’t have too many guns!

  425. avatar Rob says:

    Can I get the gun in black, I’d hate to have it clash with my wardrobe!
    Oh and 9mm since I’m dreaming!

  426. avatar M9A1MAN says:

    I always wanted a GP100 🙂

  427. avatar Jerry says:

    The Garland policeman who stopped both terrorists used his 45 caliber Glock. I’d like one of those.

  428. avatar Retired LEO. says:

    To. Whomever is the official winner congratulations and if your near where I’m at in SC once get through with both my May motorcycle weeks I’ll buy you a congratulatory cup of coffee at Starbucks as long as we conceal carry & then someplace with good coffee afterwards. If it’s me I promise to pick up a Sig 229 DAK and buy anyone else close same deal just to tick off Starbucks.

  429. avatar Harte says:

    Is it me?!?!

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      Yes, congratulations!

  430. avatar Retired LEO. says:

    I’m using part of the bucks if I win as a marker for my sons best friend. We really did have to have him put to sleep Thursday. Pic is on block fall Buddy Theodore (teddy bear). In the Woof Corner.

  431. avatar Harte says:

    Please let me win – I have a very big wish list…

  432. avatar Sven says:

    A Sig P320 with a built-in Sig Romeo 1 red dot sight would be perfect, but a bit over $700. I’d be happy to pay the difference though.
