FOR ALL GIVEAWAYS you have to email with the subject line of the email as the thing you are entering. The winners will be picked after the show, most likely not until the Monday after the show, because everyone has to fly home and get organized in order to wade through all of these tens of thousands of emails.

Official Rules

  1. This is a GunsAmerica promotion using our GunsAmerica Blog and Facebook. There is no purchase required.
  2. To enter this giveaway, you must monitor this Blog page, or the GunsAmerica Facebook news feed for special codes that we will post as giveaway items become available. These codes will be something like “SUREFIRE LIGHTS UP THE DARKNESS,” “STAG ARMS MAKES LEFTY AR-15S,” or something like that.
  3. These codes must be emailed, using standard email, to as the Subject: line. The entry is not case sensitive, and spelling doesn’t count. If you put the code in the body of the message, or you post it to our wall, to our blog, or anywhere else, you didn’t enter. It must be in the subject line of the email.
  4. You may enter each contest only once, and you may enter all of the contests. We will be filtering all of the message on subject line and email address, and you if you have duplicated for any one contest you will be dropped from that contest.
  5. After the SHOT Show we will count the number of entries in each contest and use a random number generator to pick the winner. Therefore your entry is not time sensitive. The winner will be contacted via email, and will have 48 hours to answer before being dropped and the next winner chosen.
  6. You must reside in the United States or a US Military base to win, and be a US citizen.
  7. This contest is valid only where legal, and you may not enter if you are under the jurisdiction of somewhere that it is not legal.
  8. All taxes and tax reporting are the responsibility of the winners.
  9. You must legally be allowed to own the item that you win and you must be able to take possession of it yourself where you live. High capacity magazines and many firearms are not legal in all states and all locations, and many need special permits that you must have. If it is determined that you cannot take possession of the item, a new winner will be chosen and the first winner will receive nothing.
  10. There is no cash value to this giveaway. The physical items will be sent to the winners or the FFL dealer of the winners in the case of guns.
  11. GunsAmerica and all the participating companies are not liable to give anything away. We are free to give nothing away at all if circumstances don’t work out correctly. We will do our best to get the items to the winners in a timely fashion and generally everyone gets their stuff.
  12. The winners may or may not be posted in the Blog and on Facebook. Gun owners are generally privacy conscious and often people don’t even want their first name and city posted. If the winners wish to send in a picture of them with the item, we will be happy to post it.
  13. By entering this contest, you give GunsAmerica and the participating companies the right to email you for other things if we so choose. If you are a gun nut, you will generally be happy about whatever it is, and none of the GunsAmerica Partner Companies spam people.
  14. By entering this giveaway, you agree to hold GunsAmerica and all of the companies involved in the giveaway harmless of any and all claims.

    I have not seen anything about a single prize being given away, did I miss something? If not, when will it start? Thanks for the info, in advance.

    • Administrator January 29, 2012, 7:10 am

      All of the winners were posted to our public facebook page.

  • Mike January 19, 2012, 10:35 pm

    this is what the page says – rule # 2 . To enter this giveaway, you must monitor this Blog page, or the GunsAmerica Facebook news feed for special codes

    But yet to see one code here ???? has anyone else ??

    thanks for chances to win great gift such as these

  • Mike January 18, 2012, 3:20 pm

    Face Book — BS — seems so many have fallen for the FB – BS – to do so much — Guns America don’t need to connect with Face Book – to stay connected to gun owners –

  • Glenn January 18, 2012, 8:48 am

    I thought codes were going to be posted here too, and not just on Facebook? Ditto on the anti-Facebook comments above.

    • Administrator January 18, 2012, 9:38 am

      they will be later today hopefully

      • Glenn January 20, 2012, 2:25 pm

        Still not seeing them…

  • Emmanuel January 18, 2012, 12:38 am

    I love this country land of the free and home of the brave.Thank you to guns america and to all a serviceman and women for serving this great nation.

  • Hardrock January 17, 2012, 11:30 pm

    Nada on the Facebook. If I see another link that I have to use facebook, I’m outta here too. I enjoy GunsAmerica, but not enough to get compromised by facebook.

  • Scott January 17, 2012, 2:39 pm

    If you’ve been hacked on facebook, then most likely you clicked a link you shouldn’t have and you gave away your password. If you’re afraid of people getting access to too much of your info, just don’t put all that info out there. I have never been hacked and the only information I’ve given away is stuff that I don’t care if other people see. The only problem I have with facebook is having to listen to overly-dramatic “friends” rant on about this or that… and that can be easily solved by blocking their content. If you must, make a new email solely for fb, use a pseudonym and don’t put any personal info out.
    Paranoia, in moderation, will keep you alive, but excessive paranoia will keep you living under a rock.

    As for the product contest, I entered all I could find, but didn’t see any subject line phrase to win the stag arms prize. Has it been announced yet? I’ve searched thoroughly but still nothing.

    • Scott January 17, 2012, 2:48 pm

      Never mind, I found the Stag Arms subject line code announcement.

  • JOE C January 17, 2012, 12:14 pm


  • Deborah Butler January 17, 2012, 11:54 am

    Awesome give away!

  • Red Leg January 17, 2012, 12:50 am

    Lovin’ this! Thanks guys

  • Lady Anne Elizabeth Wehrley January 17, 2012, 12:13 am

    I dare say to women everywhere that it is nothing short of idiotic to be without protection of some kind at home or away. It would sure be a great campaign on the part of weapons companies to start executing more promotions with women in mind and mind you, don’t patronize us. Women are certainly just as strong as the grown man they once had to bear and raise. Try that one fellas! God bless the USA!

  • Alex E. January 17, 2012, 12:11 am

  • aydene militello January 16, 2012, 4:51 pm

    Ron Paul is so far to the right he’s passed go. Sure, he’s for gun ownership, self defense, the whole nine yeards. Regrettably, his appeal is to those who feel powerless for many other reasons. I’ve always felt those who label themselves “Conservative” or “Liberal” are to be feared. The greatest Statesmen understand compromise. Even those who claim to be center are generally to the left or right of center. Quite confusing it would seem. Logic always wins out eventually. Control ammo,,,,not guns. Gang bangers are too stupid to do their own reloads.

    • don January 17, 2012, 6:00 pm

      Anyone who has not familiarized them self w/ The Federalist Papers= has NO idea what this NEW form of governemt used 2 b. Any search will find it for u.
      If the american communist party hadn’t created the dept of education in the 1930’s everyone would know the Federalist /anti federalist papers that created this Republic ruled by WRITTEN LAW. It required the Supreme court 2b the NO POWER 3rd branch of government. At the very least study the actual bill of rights & the Constitution verbatum. Then memorise the tenth amendment & hang out at
      Within a very short time u will come 2 realize that the Constitution has been suspended& ignored since about 1859. There is almost nothing the courts & government do that is legal. Judges r just localised dictators.

      Compromise is not the answer. It’s just a slightly slower form of capitulation.

  • Anon January 16, 2012, 4:44 pm

    Monitor WHAT non-facebook feeds?? These “contests” seem very illegal. You cannot force people to jump through hoops to enter a contest if entry is open to all, and then HIDE the method for entering.

  • John January 16, 2012, 4:36 pm

    Does anyone know how long it lasts?

  • Orlando Stuckey January 16, 2012, 4:36 pm

    I would like to so i can say i win something off the enternet.

  • Ernie Penn January 16, 2012, 4:28 pm

    Would like to win something. Thanks for the opportunity to participate.

  • BARRY FRIEDEMAN January 16, 2012, 3:43 pm


  • Tracy Perkins January 16, 2012, 3:23 pm

    This is awesome! I hope I win something, these are all amazing companies and products!!!

  • Chris January 16, 2012, 3:02 pm

    I don’t understand why you’re posting a Ruger SR22 as part of a “giveaway” when there is NO Ruger SR22 giveaway info on Ruger’s FBook page. I liked it and checked it out thoroughly. Nothing…

    • Chris January 16, 2012, 3:21 pm

      Okay – I understand now and I feel silly for having posted that BUT maybe it’ll help people who were expecting to click on the participating companies FBook pages and see some info or at least a “contest” or “promotions” link.
      As stated in the rules you will have to “monitor” Guns America (and watch for feeds for the others if you want to) for the codes…

  • Seth Owens January 16, 2012, 2:50 pm

    I was in a near fatal car accident about 5 years back! At the time I was going to school for Law Enforcement. I didn’t have insurance at the time so they took everything from me from my trucks to my boats to my house! Then I had to sell my firearms to get more money and my other belongings to make the state happyn then they picked up the bill and now I am on permanent disabilaty and get the bare minamum of SSI! My point is nobody has given me athing without taking more then what they gave me! You guys are really doing a good deed that is not being unseen by people just as a freebe! 8 would love to get back into hunting and shooting but I don’t have the means to do so! I also can’t go on Facebook because of personal reasons! If there is anyone out there that has read this that can help me get back on my feet doing what I love after Mayo said I wouldn’t live past a day then past a week, I have proved them wrong and my before and after pictures says it all! Feel free to shoot me an email and I will explain in detail. I would love the chance to go on a guided hunt but I know that I will never be able to afford it. May GOD Bless you all and stay safe with your sports and hobbies!! Its what is most peoples internal drive! It has saved men but I’m losing hope because nobody has a heart as big as mine that I’ve seen in person. I have a mighty big story to tell!

  • Jay Neumann January 16, 2012, 2:29 pm

    I would love to win as well as others. Guns America is a great website to find everything you need.

  • Ian January 16, 2012, 2:20 pm

    I love the rules. Truly some common sense was used. All oppertunities should be done in this manner.

  • charles January 16, 2012, 2:00 pm

    it would be great to have the chance to win.

  • Samuel Mordente January 16, 2012, 1:26 pm

    I was at the shotshow 2 years ago, it was great.

  • Darren Wilkerson January 16, 2012, 1:16 pm

    They are good. Love to win them optics.

  • tdunk January 16, 2012, 1:13 pm

    We need to start having voter ballots with each of the candidates names and another spot for “NONE OF THE ABOVE”! If NONE OF THE ABOVE wins, start over with new candidates. It would be nice if they had a time limit on when they could start campaigning. The candidates we have to choose from are getting worse each year because the real business people that would do a good job as President do not want anything to do with it. It is all corrupt and citizens are tired of it. ALL Government offices should have term limits and their raises should be voted on by the public. I do not see why a politician should be set up for the rest of their lives with health care,retirement, and who knows what else they have done behind closed doors.
    They almost ALL need cleared out and start over with someone new. Just my thoughts.

  • Carlos January 16, 2012, 12:54 pm

    Loving the giveaways! Thanks for the opportunity guys!!!

  • Travis January 16, 2012, 12:37 pm

  • Timothy Hays January 16, 2012, 12:13 pm

    I would love to win I have had to sell all my guns.

  • Jeff Johnson January 16, 2012, 12:00 pm

    If America is to position itself to be Stabilized, if America is to be positioned to be Saved, if America is to be Resurrected, for one and all, Then it is imperative that all Americans Vote out of Office, Our Current President & His Many Appointee Alliances.. This Dilution, Molestation, Dismantling & Perverting of Our America, must be purged from our America, never, to ever happen again.. It is all about the VOTE.. Talking the Talk & Walking the Walk of Unwavering Americanism with Eyes wide open, A Consciousness of Founding Fathers, The Framers, Our Flag, Our Heritage & Culture, That begs Resurrection, for the many, many generations that will follow us all..! It is the Reality, that for 40 plus years, The Brand Name Electable ( 2 Party’s ) Career Professional Politicians are Exactly what has Delivered Our America, To this Economic, Financial, Social, Spiritual, Political Abyss & This Demonstrative, Epic Debt.! 40 plus years, They were all there, Promoting, Endorsing, Enabling Big Gov-ism Insanity, Historic Record Amounts of Regulation by the Enmeshed & Manifested Many Regulatory Alliances in Our Federal Buildings, Funded by Earner Tax Dollars & Borrowed Money.! It is a Betrayal, of 40 plus years, That has no excuse, no explanation, no lawyerly spin-ism rhetoric that should ever satisfy what the Elected & Appointed have Willfully, Knowingly, Allowed to Transpire, Enmesh & Manifest In Our America.. ( The Insanity of 2 Party Faction-ism, Agenda’s of Self-Ism, Narcissism & Anti-Americanism, All in the Name of Big Gov-ism.. Purge these likes & kind from our Federal Buildings, That Cris Crosses America & Wraps the Globe. Let the Votes, Clean out This Haven & Monument of Unquantifiable Amounts of Waste, Fraud, Abuse & Betrayal.. Fly this Nations Flag.everywhere you may, Anytime you are able.. Find our flag waving in the wind & feel your eyes fill with water.. God Bless America. The Greatest Nation of All.. This Nation belongs to everyone of us & to the many generations that will follow….

  • Scott January 16, 2012, 11:45 am

    Just to let you know the code for the Sure mag is different on surefires page than on gunsamerica

    • Scott January 16, 2012, 12:10 pm

      hm the code I pulled from gunsamerica page “THE QUICKEST MAG CHANGE IS NO MAG CHANGE GET SUREFIRE.” is now gone. Dont know whats up, just a we bit confused

  • Tomahawk January 16, 2012, 11:44 am

    GA is apparently hooked up with FB to the intention of subrogating us all into their intel base. I do not believe that GA intends to be wonderful to us all and give us “free” stuff. That’s right, read the rules. You will submit to FB in the end. I no longer trust GA and question their motives.

  • chris Phillips January 16, 2012, 11:38 am

    this is fantastic…cant make the shot show but at least i can feel like im there!!

  • Thomas Labrecque January 16, 2012, 11:37 am

    vote ron paul

    • Bill January 16, 2012, 2:42 pm

      And ensure an Obama re-election.

  • Thomas Labrecque January 16, 2012, 11:35 am

    Thanks for letting me enter in the contest without joining facebook I love everything about shooting/hunting

    Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  • Kenny January 16, 2012, 10:30 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to participate.
    Always enjoy winning anything gun related.

  • Dom D. January 16, 2012, 10:19 am

    If your smart you will avoid face book like the plague unless you want any one to know what your doing!!

    • Bill January 16, 2012, 10:26 am

      Agreed. Ain’t it great GunsAmerica isn’t requiring us to join FB to enter these contests?

  • Rob January 16, 2012, 9:34 am

    Just bought a Ruger LC9 nice carry gun accurate enough but slight muzzle flip. I suggest a Stainless steel guide rod. They are available for around $25. Now I need the .22 to go with it.

  • Steve January 16, 2012, 9:07 am

    M. Romney is a talking head period. Same as the big fella in there now! Get off the band wagon, honestly learn about the man ….Hunstman doesnt lie on his back for the banking industry as Mitt did and does,never stabbed at anyone the way the Newt ,Romney and whats his name lol….really though …dont be a follower….look,learn and listen.

    Make a sound decision rather than just sounding off.

    ROMNEY IS THE REASON MASS HAS A HANDGUN BILL and is against firearms of all sorts.ANOTHER POLITICIAN TRYING TO CHANGE THE 2ND AMENDMENT…..Think about that sportsman!!!

    Do we as sportsman want this man behind the wheel when the lobbying starts and they want to introduce yet another gun law/restriction?

    Give them an inch …they will TAKE that mile and we will never,never get it back.

    Listen to his foreign policy….its dam scary!

    Unfortunatley M Romney lied about “saving” the Olympics,Nassacchusetts doesnt want him back, he has a “vicious temper” and this could be the man that may have his finger on the nuclear button in the black suitcase that follows him around …or did you forget about that.

    He has been in bed with the banking industry all his life.Yet he states he will clean it up?

    Mitt has 5 YEARS CAMPAIGNING, (five) AND YET HAS LESS THAN 40%of the vote???? HHhhmmmm.

    Be real my friend….dont just get mad because someone doesnt agree with you …get the truth and have a nice day.

    Do YOUR part in helping to save America !!!! Huntsman will instill trust back into the office of The Presidency of The United States. God bless us all.

    • Bill January 16, 2012, 10:25 am

      Umm…Today Huntsman is throwing in the towel & is expected to support Romney from here on. So your points appear meaningless at best.

    • Flyboyron January 16, 2012, 10:25 am

      How’s that Huntsman love doing for you now?

  • Dennis Luther January 16, 2012, 9:01 am

    I am ALWAYS ready to win! Perhaps I’ll get lucky this time.

  • Alan Miller January 16, 2012, 8:49 am

    I think this is a great idea that gives vendors and readers alike a chance to see products and services they might otherwise never see. With of course the added incentive for us the readers to perhaps win a little something. Since I’m a disabled vet and seldom get a chance to attend shows, it gives me an idea of the new and better products the market has available. I love it!!!!

  • James Murray January 16, 2012, 7:26 am

    I would love to win

  • Dennis Birran January 16, 2012, 7:18 am

    This is great, but I don’t do facebook, nor will I ever do facebook. It is unsafe on many levels. This is my opinion, but there are many other opinions out there, just like mine.

    • Administrator January 16, 2012, 8:11 am

      You should read the rules.

      • CMR January 16, 2012, 10:20 am

        Above the rules it says “There will be surprise giveaways from some of these GunsAmerica Partner Companies, through ONLY THEIR FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS, …” so how many people never will even bother to read the rules.

        • Administrator January 16, 2012, 10:23 am

          That is actually the point. The few people who actually get into this will have a good chance of winning.

      • debra lay January 19, 2012, 5:09 am

        hey i read the rules and liked on face book. i love ruger’s i own a couple but i have never won one but i would like too

    • JPW January 16, 2012, 9:42 am

      U don ‘t need to have FB to win.

    • CMR January 16, 2012, 10:18 am

      Ditto what he said!

    • Blackpowdernose January 16, 2012, 3:19 pm


    • Tom R January 16, 2012, 4:17 pm

      Same here, been hacked too many times on face book. Way too unsafe, thanks but no thanks.

      • Roy January 19, 2012, 8:52 am

        You people need to learn how to set up your FB accounts I have never been hacked

    • Michael Horning January 16, 2012, 9:25 pm

      I 100% agree with Dennis Birran!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hearh January 16, 2012, 7:17 am
