    I'm well aware of what the forum is, hence my disclaimer in the initial post.

    If my wife read about it on a Betty Crocker forum, it would still be a useful thread there.

    I do not see any violation of OCDO rules and as it is RKBA related, but not about OC, it is properly posted to the General Discussions sub-forum.

    That's what I was thinking as well.

    Thank you.

    I guess you could push the pin in and fold it so it could be carried ... I have a colt ... but if an emergency occurred I would be handling my AK47, not my colt. Sorry colt -- make it less jamming and it would be a slam dunk for the AR15. Never had a jam in my AK ... tens of thousands of rounds through it ...

    Wouldn't spreading the word reduce our chances of winning, as it would create more entries?

    I think Grapeshot should delete this thread immediately, as I have already seen the link!

    But seriously, way cool package. I'm in!

    Has anyone noticed that, as you scroll down, the slow appearance of GuidoZ' avatar resembles a gopher sticking its head out of its hole?

    Just an OT observation.

    These things are important.

    Very nice AR package! Reading the "Rules" proved interesting, and made sense until I reached the final sentence - "If you are the winner and you are not able to make it to the class, you will forfeit all prizes and a new winner will be selected." Apparently, Larry Vickers is financially involved in the offer, and is hoping to get his name spread across the country with this offer... and that's OK! A sound marketing strategy that worked, and, based on the specs for the carbine, worth traveling some distance for - for those who are mobile enough to travel (job, school, finances, etc. could stop a lot of people from becoming a "winner" under the published rules). Nothing wrong with the concept from a business owners standpoint, I'm just sayin'. Pax...

    For over three grand, I can build a mighty nice platform - actually have for a whole lot less, but that doesn't take into consideration the course. You pay for the class and maybe take something nice home - good marketing.

    Larry's only financial involvement is in that he is being paid to conduct the class. The primary promotion here is the class itself which was paid for by nevadagunstustattorney.com, I just happen to have a gun and ammo to go along WITH it.

    15 people will win slots in the class, one of them gets the other goodies as a bonus.

    You're not paying for the class, that's included in the prize package.

    Yep, it sure would. However, spreading the word also helps my site and the sponsors involved. That in turn gets noticed by other sponsors and enables us to continue doing giveaways like this. The fewer people who participate, the fewer things we can do in the future.

    It's refreshing to see some humor being expressed and accepted in one of these forums. Pax...

    Excellent giveaway. I know if I win a spot the boss will let me off to participate. Would love to go beat the hell out of the new Colt 6720 I bought a couple of weeks ago.
    A chance to win another AR is just icing on the cake too.
