If you are absent, or the guess wrong, whatever, I need to know NOW.

Ok.  I will go with $511.25.  It is a good guess.  A guess for other guesses to emulate LOL.  I will enlist my wife to help me donate this evening.  I am computer stupid.

The contest rules are listed on page one. They require a few minor accomplishments, one of which is the number a posts you've made.

While you might not qualify this time, there will be another give away soon.

The ending date has been a bit iffy, and here's why:

https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Benjamin_Fortitude_PCP_Air_Rifle_Regulated/4569/8919

Originally, the in stock date was to be March 31. As you can see now, it is stretched out until the end of May. And, based on the folks a Pyramyd, it may not make it then! Steveoh and I have talked about the best way to handle the situation, and haven't come to a conclusion. However, since you ask, and the fact I'm the guy paying for this "give-air-way", the contest will end on April 15th, better known as tax day. At that time, whomever wins, will have a choice, either to wait for the .22 Fortitude, or choose a .22 Marauder, albeit the latter costs more money. I'd even entertain a different brand of about the same cost as the Fortitude, but understand the magazines wouldn't be included.

I trust this is a fair workaround to the delay issue. And thanks to Squirrel Hunter for bringing up the issue and getting me off the fence. Oh, and releasing Steveoh from further consternation! (He has enough to worry about now!)

And the winner is......??????

The guess list is attached. The nearest guess was Triggertreat. He's disqualified because his number of posts didn't meet the criteria (25).

Two who did qualify were very close. Ncrary guessed 194.70, and McCourter guessed 128.28. The differences were 33.70 and 32.72 respectively. This makes McCourter the winner! Congratulations.

As the winner, he has the right to either choose to stay on the list for the new Fortitude, due hopefully some time in June, or choose a UMAREX Gauntlet, his choice. I'll mail off the rest of the goodies as soon as he send a PM with his mailing address. The airgun, which ever he chooses, will be dropped shipped (hopefully he doesn't live in Illinois).
