    This is a good follow on to the safe storage article;-)

    What exactly was the winning criteria?

    1. avatar actionphysicalman says:

      Most leaves and grass inside a house.

      1. avatar Jeremy S says:

        Hmmm in that case I think I win, considering a tree is currently visiting us through our kitchen roof and wall.

          Uh oh. Sorry to hear that.
          That was a pretty good storm. Get ready for round two.

          You need to show your mantle chain saw.

        3. avatar Jeremy S says:

          Is there supposed to be a round two???

          …there’s a post about the storm in these here parts & the tree in my house, etc, going live at 3:00 PM Pacific today…

          My chainsaw does exist, but is not very impressive.

    2. avatar Jeremy S says:

      Best photograph. Also, following @guntruth on Instagram. It did result in some positive movement in TTAG’s Insta account’s followership.

  4. avatar Cliff H says:

    Nice stuff, but in many cases a serious confusion of the terms “mantel” and “hearth”.

  5. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Classic lines. Classic rifle.
    Congrats to the winner.

    An m2 .50 bmg for a mantle gun? What’s he got stashed in the safe?

      1. avatar AdamTA1 says:

        Elf on the shelf manning the thing certainly made me guffaw.

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          Stole my thunder.

          That whole Elf on the Shelf concept is kinda creepy.

          Training the little ones early for a surveillance society.

    Looks good! Sorry for short shrift on an “active ” news day…

  8. avatar jwm says:

    Word of advice for future contests, guys. EBR’s are not mantle guns. If it ain’t sporting wood and steel it ‘s just tupperware.

    1. avatar Jeremy S says:

      Your mom sports wood.

        Now we’re doing “Yo Mama’s”?
