Gun Giveaway

GUNS magazine has a gun giveaway in every issue. You can fill out the info requested on a postcard & mail it it (one entry per household), or you can do it online at gunsmagazine.com. After you're into their website, you click on "win this gun" (or whatever it says), & you're sent to the contest entry section. You answer a few questions in their "survey", then give your home address & phone, then the address, phone & store hours of whatever gun shop with an FFL you would use to receive the shipment of the gun.
Sometimes they're rifles, sometimes handguns. Not every gun they give away would appeal to everybody, but what the hell, they're free! If you don't want it, you can sell it & use the money to get something you want, or you can trade it for something you want.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

TMI for them and you will be spammed to death. There is no free lunch or gun IMHO.

sweepstakes

I entered redman's sweepstakes to win a harley every day for a year (they allowed one entry a day). I didn't win, so I quit. I'll stick to the sports book and craps.

The S&W 1911 PD is a Commander-size model with 4 1/4″ barrel, carbon steel slide, and Scandium frame. With an 8+1 round capacity, it weighs 28 ounces empty. This model features a Novak rear sight, external extractor (for reliability), and wrap-around Desert Tan Crimson Trace Laser grips. This Editor owns a full-size, all-stainless S&W 1911. My gun has proven exceptionally accurate and has excellent fit and finish. With handloads my gun will shoot as accurately as some Baer and Wilson customs I’ve tried. Below is 5-round group I shot offhand at 10 yards with my 5″ S&W 1911. The bullet hole edges are sharp because I was using semi-wad-cutters. I used Vihtavuori N320 (my favorite powder for 45acp) and 200-grain SWCs from Precision Bullets in Texas. The only thing I would change on my S&W 1911 is the trigger shoe. I prefer the old-fashioned short trigger in 1911s (but that’s a matter of personal preference).
