    We are GIVING IT AWAY!

    Post by Abda on Sun Jul 03, 2011 1:19 am

    The next prize we will be offering is the following:


    R&L Airgun Supply Inc., in a joint offer, is also going to match TIFTAF $20.00 to our $30.00 for a gift certificate to anything in R&L Airgun Supply Inc. stores. That's right, brothers, that's a tonal of $50.00 all together!

    Hey, hey, hey! L-O-O-K-I-N-G GOOD!

    A $50.00 value!


    The next prize is from yours truly:Admin, AKA Abda and none other than the Squirrel Shooter himself, AKA Squirrel by sign on here, the least knowledgeable about air guns on the planet, me! Ta-Da!

    Up for your viewing pleasure next is a Hornaday GS-1500 Electronic Powder Scale
    .

    It's brand new, still in the vacuum packed shrink wrap from the day it got to me from Midway in the mail. Some history on this one is that I'd looked EVERY where to get this one and couldn't find it. Well, I could find it but no one had it. Buggers! So, I back ordered one on the promise it would get tom in a week.

    Yea, right . . . it got to me alright: Almost TWO solid months after I'd already forgotten it and bought one from Cabelas! So, when it came to me, I actually thought it was something else and, without looking at to long, tore into the packaging and there it was, something that confused the Sam Hill out of me! But I went through my records, found it was a legitimate purchase so I couldn't go back on it---even if they would I wouldn't. Just not my nature to do things that way so now I have it, still, and ready for some lucky drawing winner!

    Also, from TIFTAF someplace in these prizes will be still packaged and new 2 sets of Beeman Scope Hight Mounts Model 5031 shown in this link to PA
    .
    That's enough to do TWO Air Guns,fellas, not just one and a value of $57.00 A PIECE just so we have our understanding correct.
    That's a total of $114.00 in Scope mounts!

    And a GRAND TOTAL OF OVER $300.00 in retail cost in prizes!


    I bought these for myself but it is going to be a very long time before I can swing the cost of the next three scopes I want and when that time comes around, I'll swing the cost of new ones then. Besides, I don't know if I'll actually *need* high mounts for these next three Air Guns that are now scope less in my current herd. So, for a long time they'd just be collecting dust and really need to find a good home!

    I've not decided yet if I'm joint to just give away my little and twice used G4 hand pump. That may come into the mix as well. I guess how good a mood I'm in that day. So, if you need one, best be nice to me during that time!

    Well, brothers, this is about it for now. I'm open to comments and suggestions about how we should go about with our drawings such as should they be one at a time, one drawing that gets bigger the more one post at a time members post a one time post in the drawing thread yet to be created, etc.

    cheers Spread the word, we're giving stuff away! cheers .

    But you have to be a member and you have to post to get it!

    These are great deals! With all that is being offered, the only thing one would need is the Air Gun to mount on all the equipment and Randy at R&L Airgun Supply Inc. is just the guy to help you get one!

    Don't forget to observe the poll at the top of this thread!

    Special thanks to Randy: If he had lady parts I'd kiss him!

    Would it be possible to win all the prizes at one drawing? How would that work?

    Please note the poll at the top of this thread and caste your vote!

    You did perfect. I saw your post.

    All you need to do is:

    • post your sign on name

    • your area of the United States

    • the time you made your post

    • and a first name if you want to but you don't have to do the first name thing if you don't want to.


    Perfect. You did perfect.
    .
    Spread the word on the Drawing. This pellet drawing is a first run and a tryout for the rest of the prizes that we have to give away. Not junky and crappy stuff either!

    Depending on how this pellet drawing goes, we could add more prizes to the pot and/or see how to best handle the future drawings to come.

    Cast yhour vote at the top of this thread, Gary. That will give us some idea of how to proceed OR if you could win more the more that sign up for the drawing!

    But your post is likely going to come down, Bud. You can't use my home to cast your entry. You gotta do it on your own computer at your own house!

    I think it's fair to '"Have individual drawings for each prize.'" because more board members will have alot better odds of winning the prize. Laughing What fun would it be for the other members should the only winner-wins everything Crying or Very sad that's my 2 ¢'s. That's my Vote!

    Yea, I suspect the time when the more valuable prizes are up for grabs there will be more contestants.

    Really, I wish I could enter this one just to see if I'd win anything. I'm like Stub, the only thing I've every won in my life is a couple of 2 dollar lotto tickets. Crying or Very sad

    More than one drawing at a time?

    Post by Abda on Sun Jul 10, 2011 4:59 pm

    H'm, I was wondering. What if we held more drawings on the prizes at the same time?

    But I think that the higher the value the higher the stakes should be. Cost more than two posts?

    Anybody think we should start new drawings for all the prizes instead of waiting until the current drawing is over with? scratch

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Sure thing, time for starting another drawing. I think some items wilt and others will draw more attention and new members . Just having the patience to wait contently for the current drawing, could weigh heavily on my Anticipation of a chance to win the 'Big' prize.

    Small prizes like pellets probably need to be flying out the door to draw incentive. to new members to join. hint hint
    Also when I use the various Internet search engines for airgun forums I get every forum but this one. Maybe some meta data is needed??

    Depends on your search terms. Try www.airgunsinc.org. You'll find us. I haven't gotten it listed as the internet address you see in the address bar when you are actually at the site. We use a redirect: Not a common theme but still a common practice. Saves you in the long run should you pull up stakes to another remote server since the domain name is privately owned like ours is. Too, if you do a search with a term then our www. link behind it, it'll show too. What are your search terms when you try it?

    This would be helpful info. I CAN add some meta tags to make it do a better job. It's one of those things I've been meaning to get around to doing.

    Yes, I agree on the pellets but the thing is is that was a "try me out to see" thing on how it would work, what we needed to look out for, whom might abuse it, etc, etc. That's how we came about the rules for the scope and mounts. It's all a learning curve for everybody. I'm not out to just up and give it away for the first few. Only a few would have signed up and then it would have been gone. It's meant to be a fun thing, not a free for all. I'm sure you know what I mean when I say that.

    Rome wasn't built in a day but it had a beginning and so have we. We'll get there. Just takes time and perseverance.

    Hey, thanks for the input. I really appreciate it.

    OH! Duh-Huh! JEEZ Louise, I can be dense at times. I get it now. Throw another brick at me, Stub, make it draw blood and maybe I'll catch on this time . . .Ugh!

    Okay, on that, it's only two tins and ORairgunner is putting that up out of his personal stash. I may have a few tins of something that the 8 in my current herd doesn't like to graze on, but they'd probably be open.

    Tins of pellets can range in price but say the average was about 8 bucks depending on what kind you get and you'd need to get something that many makes and models like to eat. That'd be about 8 to 10 bucks a head for a membership.

    Um, Stub? Have you met me yet? I'm so poor I can't afford to pay attention! Sad

    Seriously, Stub, I'd like to get members but not THAT bad!

    Can you see it? Like a radio in the car . . . "And the next 5 callers after the first 20 will get this brand new . . .. !" I crack me up! Laughing Laughing

    What would be worse is the look on my wife's face when it came time to pay up . . . something like
