    i just noticed that there were only 458 members signed up for it. ( prob be a run at it now!)
    I thought peculiar, who doesn't want another gun
    I mean if you didn't like it, you could always sell or trade. Right?
    Watdayathink ?

    I mean my mantra is
    If it's free, it's for me.
    I'll take three. LOL.

    Nobody but me and a few others on this forum would lower their self-esteem and take a free .40! [smile]

    You could always turn it in for a Target gift card.

    It's a caliber that I don't have and yes, I suppose you could trade it but I'd rather enter for something I want instead of just entering cause it's free.

    This.

    If I don't want it, I don't enter. Someone else wants it, and my entry makes them less likely to win. That's bad juju.

    My son is a Ruger fanboi. He'd love it. He has a keltek in .40 so he's already got the ammo supply

    I forgot until I saw this post. I use the new post button. It doesn't show up with regular threads.

    I have what I need. Leave it for a young shooter to win, save money for ammo and stick around to support the 2A and NES.

    I only enter if it is something I want or could use. Otherwise I take a pass.

    When you have what you need you pass and leave it for those that need it more!

    I like the gun, not necessarily the caliber, but beggars can’t be choosers!

    Who won??

    I don't post in unless it's something I want. I don't go in just because it's free, same with a karma. Just going in on everything is, as @Picton said, "That's bad juju."

    I've got 3 that I want to sell in Mass before permanently exiting the state. I'm only keeping one .40 as it is a custom-made version of the CZ-75B (Sphinx). So I'm not collecting any more .40s.

    This. Nevertheless, I entered one here and won an M&P Shield in 45 cal. My son needed an SD pistol so I had it registered to him.

    To me it’s a good down payment on a new 1911.
    I already have a tricked out SR9 and I like it a lot.
    Not enough to add another caliber to the fold.

    .40 for NES is like garlic for vampires. I think everyone pictures in their minds accidentally putting a 9mm round in a .40 pistol and
    hilarity ensuing.

    Happens every month. Some have no clue what day it is.
