If you want more people to enter a contest, make it quick and simple to enter.
Picking a number between 1 and 999 will probably get a lot of entries.

Earl,

The guild does have contests like that, but a lot require a bet of effort. This one is for the advanced airguuner and it encourages a shooter to learn about the important basic formulas of airguns. So not only does one learn about the physics of airguns  but they can get a really cool prize for doing so. A win win.

Hang around a while. You'll get as much or more than you give.

Kevin is correct. I would like to think we're all a family here on the Guild. As a family, we share what we know, or at least what we think we know. Corrections in that regard, have always been welcome, and that's as it should be. Bob Sterne, whom I believe is one of the most knowledgable folks in the hobby, graces our pages with his presents, in more ways than one! This last contest, if we can call it that, was in the vain Kevin expressed—learning. I fully admit I've learned a lot, and in fact is one of the reasons I took over this site when Travis left. We value your input too, Earl, and I do plan on making changes to the contest rules, to make entering an easier task.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

My mistake.
I assumed the purpose was to get more members to join.
I can calculate the foot pounds of energy.
The other 3 questions were much to difficult for me to answer so my answers were a WAG.
