I used to work for an amateur radio store (EEB) and Icom called with a question/answer contest. I answered all their questions right and won a IC-736 HF/6M transceiver. I was pretty floored by that one.

Since then...bupkiss. Not even a stupid scratcher ticket.

Lets see...
won a quilt at the state fair last summer
Won a rifle out of Guns magazine about 8 years ago
Won a knife out of Gun World about 13 years ago
Won a moped about 15 years ago..took me FOREVER to get rid of that thing.
Won a case of less than lethal beanbag rounds at a training conference once.
I win a few bucks on the Lotto every once in a while.

Other than that, basically just tee shirts and coolers and stuff.

I won the grand prize in the 1934 Group raffle in 2002, a full-auto Vector Uzi carbine. I had just decided two months earlier to get into the title II game and had bought (you guessed it), a full-auto Vector Uzi carbine. So I sold the one I won to my brother for $1500. They were going for $3000 at the time, but he's my brother, and he owes me big time for awhile now. I took the $1500 and bought a DSA STG58, a scope and some mags, so everyone made out in the end.

The kicker is that the 1934 Group never cashed the $30 check I sent for my three raffle tickets. I think it was probably because they'd lost their court case at that point and therefore had no purpose for the money.

One Halloween I won a case of beer for best costume.

The chair had a sign that said ...... a piece of gum.

When I was six, at a church bingo, I won, and was allowed to pick my prize from about 10 items. I went home with a nice pair of 6-guns (cap guns) and holster set. Cool!

Last damn thing I ever won in anything like that.

Well sir, I know how you feel but I believe I'd have to shoot it just once. But that's just me. Its a prize, to be sure! I don't know what it is about shotguns but they've always been the awe of firearms to me.
