Count the lead!
« on: September 25, 2018, 11:22:47 AM »
The last guessing contest went so fast, most missed it! That won't happen this time I bet! So here is the deal.

Please R E A D the contest rules first.

Then try and guess the actual number of bullets there are in the tray pictured below. The contest will end on October 15th, unless someone just accidentally guesses the EXACT number. The calibers are .458, .457, and .575.

The prize is also below.

The response is deafening! Okay, let us open the contest to everyone but Steve, because he knows the actual number (so do I).

Shawn, I wish I knew! The prize is a good one, and to ship it back out will cost almost half of what it cost to buy.

I'm abstaining from this one due to the fact that I don't need a shooting table. It would a real d**k move if I actually won it and then didn't use it because I build the Born Wild chairs!  ;D ;D ;D

I’m going with 807.

Steelhead, just a suggestion, but guess anyway and if you win “regift” it to the runner up. Just thinking that the more that participate the more interesting the contest becomes. Again, not trying to be boss hog just my suggestion.

Thanks,
Chris

Good idea Chris!

I'm trying to make this a bit interesting, but as Shawn mentioned, it is difficult to give things away. I suspect that part of the issue it the donation "requirement". Well, it is optional! What typically happens, the winner ends up sending in a small donation, but that too is optional.

I notice that Monkeydad has returned from his hiatus. Perhaps he would like a shot at guessing??
