my first gun was a Remington 870 express in 20 gauge i was given it for my 14 birthday im pretty sure i spent 80% of the pay from my summer job on trap loads and clays that year and took my first deer,duck,goose ,pheasant and squirrel with that gun i still take it out every year deer hunting
IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    First one was technically a BB gun my mom only rarely let me use.   She was so paranoid about me getting arrested for shooting at targets in the back yard that it almost never left the closet.

    My first real gun was the SAR-1 I bought in college.   I never really grew up shooting aside from a few times at scout camp.   Then I picked up a copy of The Probability Broach by L. Neil Smith at a used book sale at the college library.  Read it a few months later, and that eventually lead to my somewhat extreme libertarian politics.   Decided I needed to get my first gun shortly after that.   I was initially looking for something like a Ruger 10/22,  but I got curious browsing around gunbroker and saw that I could get an AK and half a dozen magazines for $300 and thought that would be pretty awesome to have.

    So far as I see it, there are only 23 posters in this thread.  That means that currently everyone has a 1 in 23 chance of winning this $50 certificate from Adams Holsters.

    I was thinking that he was running this across several boards.  But I don't really know.

    And just a note if somehow the drawing doesn't occur tomorrow it might be a day or two etc.

    I haven't posted about it here, but I've got an internet SNAFU that I'm in the middle of, and I may not have net other than via my phone tomorrow depending on how things go. It's short term I'll be putting up towers to push basically wifi over long distance to me out here, but depends on time to get everything up and running. So I may be slightly less available during that whole swap over depending on how things come together on that end.

    So IE be patient if it takes me a day or two to draw a winner. I don't expect an issue, I should be able to do it either way but just a heads up since I'm juggling 400 things right this second;)

    Take care!

    No worries, Luke. Even though my odds are pretty good out of everyone who's posted, I would still be very surprised if I won anything. I may not be not the most optimistic gambler, but I am certainly patient  ;).

    My first gun was a Winchester 1300 Defender. I bought it the day after I got engaged, thinking that if I was going to get married, I'd better be able to take care of my family. Well, my fiance' was pretty annoyed, but I was ecstatic. Eventually, I traded her in for a nicer one that treats me better. Still have the shotgun though.

    Alrighty guys I just did the drawing and ran all the names etc. I didn't do a video but here's how I did it. I took every name who posted here, removed myself of course. Then I took and removed duplicates in excel with all the names in order. That assigned a number to each name so to speak based on the row the name was in.

    Then I went to Random.org and setup a generation for 1-23(since there were 23 entries), and the random number generator came back with 22.

    22 Corresponds to ksuguy!, so you are the winner of this months contest you can contact me and we'll go over things.

    I will try and think of something interesting in the next few days for the next one;)

    Take care!

    Can't wait for the next contest.  And also Congrats to ksuguy.

    Here is my holster that I received last night for my most recent order.  One of these days I may try an exotic but these are so beautiful as is.

    Tough to decide.  Not sure if I want to get the Texas IWB so I can more comfortably conceal my larger guns,  or if I should get the OWB one for looking good while open carrying.

    I'm leaning a little towards the Texas.  However, I still have to decide which gun to get it for.  SR9E, CZ75,  or maybe the 10mm Witness....   So many options.

    Get a Badwater, OWB, looks cool, quick on and off and easy to conceal. I love mine.

They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    Whether inside the waistband or outside, 9 out of 10 experts agree that carrying a 10mm is guaranteed to make the ladies swoon- and that 10th expert that disagreed? Well, he was a Glock owner, so what does he know?  :neener

    Every Texas IWB that I have had, has been fantastic. I cannot comment on the other's, because I do not open carry.

    After much consideration, I think I'll go Texas IWB for the Ruger SR9E.    I bought the SR9 a couple months ago since I wanted to move to something with more capacity than my SP101.  It was also relatively inexpensive, so I don't have to worry about one of my nicer guns getting beat up from daily use.   However, I haven't been carrying it yet since I didn't have a really good holster for it.   I was using a cheap universal holster for pocket carrying the SP101.  That method of carry wasn't going to work for a larger semi-auto.

    The Texas should work nicely for it.   Then maybe later I can get one of the nice OWB holsters when I want to open carry my nicer guns.

    I'm going to lock this topic, start a new one for this month since I've been bad at getting another up and running;)

    So expect another thread with another contest here in the next few minutes for this month. Do keep in mind this will be shorter since we're mid month right now so you'll have only a few weeks to get your chance;)
