OK, now that we got it straight that the gun writer thread became FUBARED, I still wanted to give a hoster away just for fun, in addition to getting more folks involved. It is a $95 holster after all and even Dick Heinie hasn't got his yet!

OK here is the deal. You have to ask a gun related question. We need 25 questions. At least one each from 25 people. I'll choose the questions from that data bank and post the test. First registered member to answer all the questions correctly on list wins holster.

Make sense?

No David :grin:

You have to wait till we get 25 or more actual questions and I post them as a test.

Add a few of your own here and make them hard :wink:

I have a few left myself :lol:

I've been a little busy and haven't made up the test yet, David. I was asking for questions not letting you make up the test. That just wouldn't be fair now would it.

Besides I haven't even been able to fulfill my original back orders yet for the GWH so I was in no hurry to give another one away just yet.

There is time........... :grin:

Dane,
I'm sure the readership will vote to let me make up the questions and answer them. Why don't you send me the GWH for safekeeping until someone answers the 1st 10. Just to be sure of course, I promise to give it back when the winner is found.....

You know what I like best about this list? There are any number of really strong personalities here, most know how to give and take a joke. They seldom let "shit" slide (like guard dogs :grin: and are always willing to give anyone a hand.

Most of them are willing to ask for help or speak their minds :smile:

This place is GREAT!

Nice try on the holster David:) You DID have a chance to buy one for the couple of days I had them in stock :roll:

Shane,

I thought that Dane had mentioned in another thread that he received that member # when he registered at '1911forum' at Brian Bilby's request. I've tried to find the thread to be sure but I can't dig it up so far.

HTH, Jacques
