Make sure to watch the embedded video above to see yours truly carving a pumpkin with a Black Collar Arms Pork Sword Pistol in .22 LR. Full disclosure: I’m a co-owner of Black Collar so this is a shameless plug.

  1. I might actually enter this contest…been wanting to carve a pumpkin with a .22 anyway, and it’d be awesome to have a silencer to put on the levergun, a la Teddy Roosevelt. Only problem is being on Instagram. Blech.

  2. Would love to win….not willing to sign up for Instagram.
    Guess if I want one I will have to pay for it and wait and wait, just like everyone else.

    • “Would love to win….not willing to sign up for Instagram.”

      Preach it.

      Although I admit the millennial-aged bearded horror creature in the video was truly scary… *snicker* 😉

      (Heard news on the radio that in Pinellas County, Florida, (city of Saint Petersburg) the mail-in vote has now exceeded the entire 2016 presidential election vote. Not sure what to make of it, except that Pinellas usually votes Leftist, anyways.)

  3. What happened to the days when you could alternatively enter contests?
    Like “Just write “costume” on a 3×5 card and send it to ….”
    Now it’s all sign up for X, Y, Z. May as well be asking people to sell their souls to the devil.
    A devil that hates them and is actively working to strip them of their rights.

    • The major corporate brands like Coke are into that, and if you enter, you’re on a mailing list for life. I’ve got ‘disposable’ web-mail accounts for stuff like that, but it’s just a pain in the ass to have to go through that in the first place…
