Ok since I didn't have my crap together in time to get in on the gift exchange, and since I'm having a particularly enjoyable friday the 13th I'm gonna get one of you guys a gun "at cost." Please do NOT participate if you don't intend to actually purchase a firearm. In other words don't hog it if you ain't gonna use it. Here is the deal: Post which firearm you would want and why you think you are especially deserving this year. I will decide who is most deserving and advise you of the dealer price. All I need then is payment and a destination FFL (unless local than I can do transfer). I will include a copy of the original invoice so you can verify that is what was paid. If you are one of those lucky souls whose local FFL does "transfers" for dealer price + $5.00 (or similarly ridiculously absurd small amount) please let the others guys who ain't so lucky have at this one. Also this is not a random drawing or a raffle. The choice will be at my discretion only.

Why I deserve a Sig 226 or USP40 at cost (I reserve the right to change my mind)- 1)I didnt kill my exwife in the divorce [:o)] 2) I didnt sleep with the neighbors daughter even though the offer was there [0:)] 3) I paid all 3 of the speeding tickets I got this year [}:D] 4) I take my my children shooting [<|:d>] 5) I teach my children safe gun handling [^] 6) If I win I will pay for one members NRA subscription this month [;)] 7) I really really think you are the smartest poster on AR15.com and it has been a pleasure and an honor knowing that I am even allowed to surf your wise writtings. [:E] Thanks, Ropes Edited for guns

Passing on the neighbors daughter don't necissarily help your case. [:D] Also keep in mind handguns must ship 2nd day air. Even "at cost" one shipped 2nd day air from supplier to me, then again 2nd day air from me to your local FFL might not be much of a bargain anymore. Especially budget ones like a Spring XD. You could probably get one from a local stocking dealer cheaper. If I choose someone who wants a handgun, I'll do it. But it might not be the most cost effective choice on that persons part.

... Regardless who you chose to grant your offer to I must say that it is a thoughtful gesture, so thanks [b]SteyrAUG[/b]. ... That being said, please throw my name in the hat for (1) SPRINGFIELD ARMORY "Loaded" Standard M1A1 7.62 NATO on Walnut. ... Because I helped four people this year with significant contributions of my time and resources. Help they severely needed.

Wow. This is interesting.... I'm gonna have to think about this. I will post it in this spot using "edit post". Here it is: Why am I deserving of Eagle Arms AR-10 complete lower assembly at dealer cost. (Complete lower only!) This year, I have done my best this year, as I do in other years. I’ve tried to promote shooting the “black rifle”. To promote the benefits of having a firearm and the joys of shooting. I’ve done my best to help out my friends when I can. With out any reason, just got a “burr up my rear”, I purchases six custom serial numbered, stripped Cav-15 lower for six of my friends in their favorite color as gifts (not even their birthdays-their names are not listed, only their first letter). “E” received a yellow lower because he is my best friend. We’ve known each other since before we could neither talk nor walk. Heck, we don’t know how we met; guess our parents knew each other. “A” is fairly new to the ‘firearm’ scene. He purchases his first pistol this year after I persuaded him to apply for his concealed pistol permit (this year also). I have educated him that having a permit does not mean you have to purchase a pistol, but means that if you needed one, there would be no waiting. “WJ”, who taught me more about shooting in 6 months then I could learn in a lifetime. He told you straight up what was wrong, didn’t hold anything back. The man didn’t need another “AR”;, as he owns four or five “original” AR-15’s. It was more a “thank you”. “M”, who I met in my college dorm. The last time he touched a firearm was in the Boy Scouts and it was a 22LR single shot! I properly educated him on the other firearms; G27, 1911 in 38 Super, FN bolt action 30-06 (his favorite at that time) and others. He helped me through lots of stuff in college. He has been addicted ever since. And this is from someone from a big city that never touched anything since the Boy Scouts! “W”, who after five years, closed up his gun shop/range. He “hooked” me up on certain things, shoot for free & to test newly acquired “used” firearms. The usual Tuesday nigh BS session at the range and pizza too! It was sad to see him close. And “J”, who I’ve, known since 3rd grade- a friend who is an avid outdoorsman- hunting, fishing, and camping. Also a person who sees no use for semi auto “assault” rifles. I got him one and now he’s an “AR black rifle” owner. I’ve explained that an AR is very capable weapon, especially when setup for varmints. I WILL convert him! I’ve attempted to explain to people the benefits of having a concealed pistol permit. That having a permit doesn’t mean you have to buy a gun. It is exercising your given rights. I’ve talked to “E”’s sister about getting a permit. And, “E”, who’s had it tough. I allowed him to charge on my credit card a repair bill for his truck (major engine work). He’s had trouble w/ his credit. He is away working in the big city, working two jobs and trying to support his son, “T”, who was born this year (unexpected, but cute!). I knew that he had no other means of transportation and he was in a ‘bind’. I knew that there was a chance that he wasn’t going to be able to pay me back right away, but I still did it, knowing that fact. I guess I did it for his son. And, I did my small part of pissing off the anti’s and libs….. with participation in the Sten Block project! Sten mag -$3.00 JRW Block- $120.00 A little time and milling- $170 (of my labor) The fact that you gave people a source of hi cap mags for the black 9mm and the Libs and Anti’s don’t know it- Priceless

I feel I do not deserve a gun at your cost. I feel I deserve the best deal I can find, which is sometimes probably better than your cost. Sometimes I like to have fun looking, and trying to negotiate the best prices... But, if I win, I would want a nice .308 "sniper/hunting" style rifle (AR10?) or an HK Fabarm PUMP shotgun with folding stock and extension tube.

Hey, for those of us who can't afford one, can we give our brownie points to someone so they can beef up their story and sway your decision? I taught free CCW classes to strengthen the pack... I took newbies shooting... I bought my Pop his 1st handgun... I received additional CCW Instructor status in another state... I built an AR lower for a friend (And it works fine, so you don't have to deduct a point) Donated money to NRA/ILA and American Border Patrol... I reload so I'm helping the environment [8P] And I didn't bang the neighbors daughter either! Who wants my points? I'll see em to ya cheap..
Link Posted: 12/13/2002 10:57:16 PM EDT
I think everyone has his/her point on why they should be picked and some of them are very good ones. This is why I would love to be picked: A.) 20 year old college student. B.) Works endless hours to pay bills. C.) I fully support the constitution. D.) I try my best to represent progunners well. What I would love is a Rem. .308 LTR. I really want to get one of these. Oz

OK, cause I can't decide and I have too much crap to do I'm gonna simplify. I have it down to 5 candidates: Ropes4u Winston_Wolf Kaliburz ilikelegs sherm8404 So Merry Christmas all of you. The 5 of you need to email me your requested firearm and I'll get a dealer price quote. Terms: All ordered firearms will come to me COD, which means I need total payment before it arrives. Also I want to try and do this in a timely manner so please don't take a month to think about it. I would want to get the orders placed by the end of the year. Finally, the other night my hotmail took a dump. I got a message my account reset since I hadn't logged in for over 30 days. Which isn't true as I've been emailing Cav Arms all last week back and forth. I don't have contact information for MSN to get it fixed. So what I'm saying is we may have to do this by IM if my hotmail craps out again.
