ME AND MY BEST ATV DAY EVER!!!

Ok, since I don’t own an ATV, my best ATV day ever really only consists of nearly rolling my uncle’s ATV when he set me loose with it, but that’s not what this is about. This is about a contest. What follows is a sponsored post by Koplin Sports. I am being compensated for the posting, a portion of which will be going to the Children’s Miracle Network Miracle Marathon that I am “running” this month and also Kilted to Kick Cancer. No, they aren’t giving me an ATV even though I really, really want one. Maybe even NEED one. It would be awesome out at the farm for resetting targets at the rifle range and carting stuff around.

Kolpin - ATV in Mid Air

That title sounds like something you’d read in a friend’s Facebook post as a caption for an awesome photo or video, doesn’t it?  Well, it is actually, or will be soon, thanks to Kolpin Powersports.

On Friday, August 15, 2014, Kolpin Powersports kicked-off a social media video contest asking ATV fans to showcase their Best ATV Day Ever by submitting a video for a chance to win a Grand Prize pack from Kolpin worth $1,000.

The Grand Prize is $500 in cash plus a $500 Kolpin online gift card (coupon code).  But if you don’t win the Grand Prize, don’t worry, there are nine other prizes being offered, including four Runner-Up prizes of $250 in cash plus a $250 Kolpin online gift card, and five Honorable Mention prizes, which earns winners a $200 Kolpin online gift card.  Gift cards are only available for redemption at KolpinPowersports.com.

Kolpin is making it really easy to enter the contest. Here’s all you have to do:

  1. Make your video
  2. Upload your video to YouTube or another video hosting site and once the video is live, copy the URL.
  3. Paste the video URL to Kolpin’s Facebook Best Day Ever contest tab which is located at KOLPIN FACEBOOK COMPETITION PAGE

 The contest has one round of voting and the winner will be determined by a combination of social media fan votes and a judge’s panel comprised of ATV and video buffs who will look for originality and video quality.

Here’s a BIG TIP for you:  once your video is posted, quickly give your friends the URL – email it, text it, post it on your social channels – heck, do everything possible to get as many people as possible to vote for your video. But be quick about it, because voting ends at 11:59 CST on Sunday, September 14, 2014.

This awesome contest is sure to be entertaining, with hilarious, exciting or otherwise excellent videos, so even if you aren’t planning on making a video yourself, be sure to visit the page early and often to vote for your favorites!

Evict Lyme – Evyl Robot Edition

Evyl Robot here, hijacking Jennifer’s Head. Look here b*****s, Bonnie hasn’t received nearly enough money for her FUNdraiser so far, and we are looking at a little over 25 hours until it closes. This. Is. Not. Acceptable. My esteemed associate, Dennis, has put up a very nice holster as a prize in this deal, and I happen to have caught up on a bunch of my own holster work. Since we don’t have enough donations, and I have a little more free time, I’m going to put in another custom holster. Feast your hungry little eyes on this:

That’s a black leather 1911 Hidden Stitch Pancake with a red ostrich embossed inlay with an Evyl Robot logo underlay and red stitching.

Feast your eyes I say!

But you can’t have that one. Hahahahahhaa! That one is the one my brother has been wearing for over a year now. I will make a new holster like that one if, and only if the donations turn out significantly higher than at current. As in, three or four times what they currently are. Otherwise, I’m throwing in a plain black Hidden Stitch Pancake holster that fits a five-inch 1911. It’s still a sweet holster, but you don’t get the detail work in that case.

You see as things stand now, I look at the prize packages stacked in my living room, and I look at the funds raised, and I’m disappointed. This isn’t a contest. People are getting a bargain on this loot! It’s time to step up the game. These people and companies have donated some really nice stuff and the entries have not even paid for it yet! They’d be better off if they simply donated the value of their work to Bonnie’s fund. But, it’s not over yet. Please, make this thing worth it. Help out Bonnie and win cool stuff. How can you go wrong?

*Waiting patiently to log additional donations for Bonnie’s FUNdraiser.*

Giving Back

Impossible!  But the media says we’re all just bitter clingers that don’t care about anything other than our guns!

Linoge is raising money for Honored American Veterans Afield

Go and give money. This will give you warm fuzzy feelings and provide real help to those that need it. They’ve already given for you. So you are already a winner even if you stop there.

But wait! There’s more.

If you tell Linoge about it, he’ll send you tickets for a drawing on some pretty great prize packages. So you could win again!

It has been my honor to be right in the middle of some of the great things our little digital family has done.  You people rock my world.  I know you can really make a difference here too.

Pictures!

I know, this was supposed to go up on Friday.  I’m a bad, bad blogger.  But really, I’ve only had two photographic entries for Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun.  You’ve got until the end of January to enter.

And without further adieu

BradBrad actually sent me several pics, but I picked this one just because I love all the smoke and implied noise.  That’s how to spend a weekend.  Brad doesn’t blog so I can’t link back to him.

And then we have Larry showing off his EBR

Larry

 

Well I’ll let Larry tell you about it

It’s a Saiga .223 with the Tapco trigger conversion, Tapco collapsible stock and pistol grip, Texas Weapons Systems Gen 1 dogleg scope rail, UTG quad rail foregrip, Grip Pod collapsible bipod grip and a quartet of Surefire 30 round “high-capacity ammunition clips”. That should be enough to give Fineshwine, Boxer, Jackson-Lee, et al the vapors…

I actually bought it with most of the fun stuff included but before the trigger conversion was done. At the time it had the Tapco T6 collapsible stock set that has the pistol grip integrated with the stock. In that configuration it was only 922r compliant with the 30 rd magazines.

I did the trigger conversion myself (Tapco G2 double-hook trigger group) and installed the new Tapco T6 stock and separate pistol grip, so now it is compliant no matter what magazine I’m using…which was the point of doing the conversion to begin with.

So there are the details. My Glock (36) only has 7 round magazines, so apparently I don’t have to worry about it getting up in the middle of the night and killing everyone in the house like the 11+ round magazines will do.

Thanks and best of luck!
