FREE AR-15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers Class

AR15Package FREE AR 15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers ClassI know many of you may find this difficult to believe but apparently people like free stuff.  Who knew right?  Anyway, in order to please the masses and offer something back to the community, Ben Bunker from , in participation with GlockVector Industries, has booked Larry Vickers for a 3 day carbine training course October 19-21, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV.  There are 15 spots in the class and Ben is giving them all awayEDIT:  I’ve had way too many people ask me how much the class spots are selling for.  YOU CAN NOT BUY INTO THIS CLASS!
VickersTactical FREE AR 15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers ClassLocals may enter the drawing for the free class by stopping by any of the following gun stores:

Each store will be giving away at least one slot in the class and you may enter as many times as you like, although you can only win once.

So what’s better than a free 3 day carbine class with Larry Vickers?  Well, how about a free BCM AR-15 lightweight carbine?  Yep, you read that right.  Thanks to Mr. Bunker, is also giving away a slot in the class and we have a rifle to go along with it!

Of course, a rifle and training are useless without ammo so how about 1000 rounds of PMC 223A as well?  I know, all this free stuff can make for quite the burden so I’m sure we won’t get very many people entering this drawing. icon sad FREE AR 15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers Class

This unfired Bravo Company AR has been upgraded a bit too.  For starters, the 14.5″ chrome lined barrel now has a BattleComp compensator welded on so the winner does not need to worry about registering it as an SBR.  The front sight post has been cut down to make way for the new 11″ Troy Industries TRX BattleRail.  Magpul’s MBUIS were added along with a new MOE Stock and MOE+ grip.  3 PMAGs with Ranger Plates will also go with the package.  The trigger pin was loose so some KNS Non-Rotating hammer and trigger pins were added to the mix.  The bolt, carrier, and hammer have all been Nickle Boron coated by WMD Guns.

As I was checking it out, I noticed that the trigger was the weak link in the rifle .  It had a lot of creep and was not all that smooth. Lucky for you guys, Jim West of Wild West Guns noticed this too and offered to rework the trigger to make it more respectable.  Jim also offered to do some work on the barrel which consists of cleaning up the weld and re-parkerizing the entire barrel and compensator.

Here’s a breakdown of  the prize package including all rifle upgrades:

Bravo Company Mfg. Light Upper, Complete Lower, and Gunfighter Charging Handle
Battle Comp Enterprises Welded Compensator
Troy Industries 11″ TRX BattleRail
Magpul Pmags, Ranger Plates, MBUIS, MOE Stock, & MOE+ Grip
KNS Precision Non-Rotating Hammer & Trigger Pins
PMC 1000 Rounds of 223A 55gr Ammo
Wild West Guns Trigger Job & Barrel Work
Larry Vickers 3 Day Carbine Training Class
WMD Guns Nickel Boron Coated Bolt, Carrier, & Hammer
TangoDown Stubby Vertical Grip
Total MSRP Prize Package Value: $3,363.00

So what’s the catch?  Well, there are a couple of them.  First off, obviously you need to be at least 18 years old and able to legally purchase a firearm in the United States.  The package will be given away at the training class and you must be present at the class to claim the rifle and ammo.  If you are entering this drawing and live out of state, after the class, the rifle will be transferred to your local FFL where you will be responsible for any transfer and background check fees.  See below for special exceptions that are necessary for CA, MA, NY, & CT.  Once again, this class is October 19-21, 2012.  We will be selecting the winner about 3 weeks before the class in order to allow transportation arrangements to be made by the winner, in case they live out of state.  If you are the winner and you are not able to make it to the class, you will forfeit all prizes and a new winner will be selected.


UPDATE: 9-25-2012

Refer a friend and you may way a spot in the class too!

CALIFORNIA:  We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for installing a bullet button and any other modifications which may be required under CA law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.  No magazines are included in the package for CA winners.

NEW YORK:  We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for pinning the stock and any other modifications which may be required under NY law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.  No magazines are included in the package for NY winners.

MASSACHUSETTS:  We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for pinning the stock and any other modifications which may be required under MA law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.  No magazines are included in the package for MA winners.

CONNECTICUT: We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for pinning the stock and any other modifications which may be required under CT law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.

Additional information and rules may be found here.

To enter, just post a comment here and PAY ATTENTION to our standard giveaway rules.  As usual, it is absolutely FREE to enter!

UPDATE: 4-13-12

If the winner is unable to attend the class due to active Military deployment, we will allow you to send another person in your place to participate in the class and collect the prizes.  After that, it’s between you and your representative to properly handle the firearm transfer.


The grand prize winner is Codie.

The additional class spot winner is ewilmore88.

Both winners have claimed their prizes.  Congratulations guys!  We will see you both October 19-21st, 2012.

Kurtz49 May 26, 2012 at 10:09 pm

I’ll make the drive from OC if I have too!

Medic8541 May 26, 2012 at 11:08 pm

I’m definitely zeroed in. Ready to see this one in my safe.

firemanlimo May 27, 2012 at 5:31 am

Sounds great to me!

Abraham33 May 27, 2012 at 11:26 am

I have built 2 AR’s but nothing this close or as nice, to win this and training to boot O wow that is awesome. Thank you.

tskiger May 27, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Almost bought one,I think I’ll wait

avila May 27, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Sweet deal. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!!

ddhouser May 28, 2012 at 6:28 am

This looks like a sweet setup, especially like that they didn’t ignore the trigger job.

JackUppercut May 28, 2012 at 8:18 am

I’d crabwalk to Vegas for this rifle if I had to

Alexnikol May 28, 2012 at 9:52 am

I am so in!! I’m in Vegas, woo hoo!

phlegm May 28, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Yes, sir!

VEGASFIGHTER May 28, 2012 at 6:21 pm

This is an amazing rifle… good luck to all! #VegasFighter

pkirkland May 28, 2012 at 9:42 pm

This would be a sweet WIN since the cost is out of my range, however, I’m ready for a Road Trip for excellent training by Larry if I win…

kuoleva May 29, 2012 at 9:04 am

This AR would have a wonderfully caring home with the other firearms in my gun safe. I don’t understand why more people are not entering this with better comments. This is a great giveaway the least people could do is make an attempt on comments that are more than a sentence long. I can only imagine all the work that goes into putting giveaways like this together, job well done!!! I would travel terrible distances in the prone position to obtain this giveaway. Good thing I live here in Vegas with weekends off ready for some great AR training with that remarkable rifle.
I found this great quote which made me think of this giveaway:
“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.”
-Thomas Jefferson

Black Knight May 30, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Have you met Codie? The pair of you would be fabulous together.

oldschoolshooter May 31, 2012 at 6:57 am

I totally agree. They are obviously birds of a feather.

d3thd3al3r May 29, 2012 at 11:08 am

after years of wanting an AR i recently purchased one, but now seeing this contest i thought to myself i would look good holding two of them! good luck to everyone!

visa1976 May 29, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I’ve been researching and saving up to buy my first ever AR. Bravo Company is what my heart has been set on and getting this gun would be the best prize I can think of. I will do whatever it takes to get this gun and take advantage of the class!

Thank you guys for putting together something like this for those of us who love our 2nd Amendment rights, but who struggle to be able to afford such nice weapons!

acekin72 May 29, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Very Cool; Clean; and Lightweight Looking Rifle, Perfect For Some Weekend Shooting Out In The NM Desert.

Zander451 May 29, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Woohoo! I’ll take one thank you very much. ;)

DE44M Owner May 29, 2012 at 10:17 pm

This is a most awesome giveaway. All the work done to the BCM AR-15 will save quite a bit of later investment as this would probably be something I would do. The 3 day carbine class with Larry Vickers and 1000 rounds of PMC 223A is just icing on the cake. I have been researching AR-15s in the process of purchasing one, winning this would quickly add to my collection of guns. Winning somthing like this would make one tempted to move to Las Vegas as I am from California. I just purchased a Desert Eagle 44 Mag, this AR-15 would round out the fun.

acewings May 30, 2012 at 7:00 am

Wishing everyone Good Luck.

Winkmeister May 30, 2012 at 11:36 am

As a former Range Officer and Board member of our gun club here in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, I’ve been able to shoot a variety of arms: rifles, shotguns, and hanguns; mostly sporting– once a .50 BMG, that was a fun day. That was prior to the growth in popularity of the AR-style of modern rifles.
Winning a customized AR with 3 days of top-level instruction in its tactical use would be an amazing experience coupled with a lifetime of appreciation and delight whenever using it.
With much appreciation for your unique promotion, I look forward to another drive down to Las Vegas in the future. Tight Lines, Straight Shots!

marcell0cat May 30, 2012 at 12:48 pm

“The front sight post has been cut down to make way for the new 11″ Troy Industries TRX BattleRail.

All that PLUS the trigger work and re-parkerization?
Holy crap! This thing is so custom.
I’ve been looking for a AR or an AK.
If I won this thing it would be a dream come true to add to my budding collection.
And that class would be so awesome. Id never really get that opportunity otherwise.

smharris44 May 30, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I want in on this!! Would be awesome.

bpenlandjr May 30, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Nice Package! That’s what she said!

jerkyman45b May 30, 2012 at 9:03 pm

better odds than the lotto, worth a shot. pun most certainly intended.

sks75 May 30, 2012 at 10:05 pm

This is a bad ass package, anyone would be lucky to get it. Hopefully it goes to someone that dosent already have an ar15.

frank.macher May 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

A fantastic tool to use for varmints of any kind. I would definitely be honored to have that masterpiece in my home. Kudos.

wopspice May 31, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Anyone else here from California? I think the biggest “problem” I would have if I win is getting to shoot the rifle WITHOUT a bullet button and with 30rd mags! I think I would be spoiled after a 3 day class and would have to move out to NV permanently just so I won’t have to convert it to CA legal configuration!!! Good luck everyone.

MrKRL88 May 31, 2012 at 3:15 pm

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Las Vegas…I’ll certainly make the trip back for some gunfire (with a new ar15 & training). Might even bring some extra $$$ for the casinos. See you in Vegas!

loganw1 May 31, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Free stuff is awesome!

ewilmore88 May 31, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Back for a chance at the awesome giveaway. That rifle is exactly how I would build it! That class is definitely one on my list. Can’t wait for this one to end. Super stoked!

wopspice May 31, 2012 at 7:43 pm

So my girlfriend just found out about this giveaway. She’s jealous and it’s a VERY good thing this is taking place the weekend after her birthday…whew. Although if she enters and wins I don’t know what I’d do! Her only comment…”Can I get it in pink?”. My head still hurts from where I slapped myself.

Spartan5 May 31, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Lucky for me I happened to go into Wild West Guns and find out about not only this Amazing giveaway but a local Site I had no idea about. Looks like a Win Win for me. Be amazing to win since itll be the first thing Ive once since I moved to Vegas =-/ but regardless of the outcome happy to find a good local site and hopefully find some new shooters to ping steel with. Good luck to everyone.

Axelious June 1, 2012 at 6:09 am

Very sweet! Certainly looking forward to this. ;)

vtoc68 June 1, 2012 at 7:47 am

For someone who has never own an AR-15 I,ll try for it (Crossing his fingers) Spectacles testicles wallet and watch.

wopspice June 1, 2012 at 10:30 am

I’ve been going through the comments and was wondering if anyone knew what specific trigger work Jim West did on the gun besides get rid the creep and smooth it out (replace springs, etc)…and I’m also curious how much of the $420 bill was for the trigger? I’ve been considering getting a Giselle single stage trigger on my current AR but I’d prefer to leave the current trigger there and simply have some work done to it to fix some of it’s short comings. Granted I’m only shooting with irons right now but am accurate out to 200yrds and would like to have a better platform when I put a scope on.

sstrawsb June 1, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I have never won a darn thing but it wont stop me from trying :)

sstrawsb June 1, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Tried to edit my comment but doesnt seem like I can. Pretty excited for this giveaway. The Vikers class would be right on my birthday :) Cool to see a blog giving things like this away.

desertwolf224 June 1, 2012 at 5:18 pm

i’m ready to go. would love to win this..

vtoc68 June 1, 2012 at 7:56 pm

I noticed it says Welded Compensator does that mean it is welded to the barrel?

702 June 1, 2012 at 10:14 pm


SHIGURUI June 2, 2012 at 9:28 am

The last time I left the desert, I went to Vegas for three days and promised myself to never spend more than ten minutes outside in Nevada. The class & giveaway look awesome. By my estimation, it would take approximately two rounds down range in Mr. Vickers’ presence for me to bring myself to break my promise.

702 June 2, 2012 at 11:43 am

Outside in NV is not so harsh in October. In fact, the winner should consider bringing a light jacket or windbreaker.

markustlaumann June 2, 2012 at 1:20 pm

I’m still building my first personally owned AR but getting one for free AND a class would be awesome.

I’ve had one issued to me before but I only saw it at the ranges… :)

Gonzofire June 3, 2012 at 5:36 am

This would be such a great package to win.Since i’m a Disabled American Veteran,about all I get to do is cut my grass,my sisters,my mothers and her employers.On a riding mower,pushing a walk behind is out of the question,I don’t have full use of my legs.However one of my favorite guilty pleasures is each friday the guys and myself go to the shooting range and fire off about a thousand rounds,it;s always a great fun end to a usually boring and painful week.Oh well wish me luck folks.

702 June 3, 2012 at 6:00 am

Hello, I greatly appreciate the service you have given to our country and I mean no offense by this question.

In order to claim the prize you have to complete the 3 day carbine course with Larry Vickers. Based on your comment, I’m wondering how that would be possible considering the physical limitations you’ve just mentioned?

It definitely brings up something else for us to consider on this and future gun giveaways as we will not be giving any firearms away without the winner proving competence with the firearm by completing these classes.

sja5407 June 3, 2012 at 2:37 pm

I am willing to drive from VT to attend this class! I would love to win this rifle and ammo!!!!!

Lasvegastwo June 3, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Would make a great addition to my Z.E.R.T. amory.

ZOMBIES! Shoot’em in the Face!!

kuoleva June 22, 2012 at 2:54 pm

I wonder if Mr. Vickers is a member of Z.E.R.T.?

kuoleva June 4, 2012 at 8:02 am

Winning this would certainly make anyone’s year, especially if it’s their first AR and have never even shot one before. I’ve always wanted to build one, just never had the chance. Maybe this will be my lucky year to win a custom-built BCM AR15? The exclusive Larry Vickers AR training is what I think really makes this giveaway unique. It was really a great idea putting the two together, smart thinking 702 and Ben Bunker. Good luck everyone!!!

djbrian June 4, 2012 at 8:51 am

Awesome package! I’ll make the drive from Iowa!

arsenal42 June 4, 2012 at 10:26 am

Wow, loving this giveaway for such a customizable gun. There are aftermarket mods galore for this, so it definitely won’t go unused!

Mobius2386 June 4, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Great giveaway! Count me in, this would be perfect before my deployment.

Velvett June 4, 2012 at 8:02 pm

This Rock’s. Found about this helping out a fellow shooter. said come check it out you could win a great package. Here i am!

MyUserNameWasTaken June 5, 2012 at 5:20 am

Livin’ in Virginia but will take the time off if I win! And to have Larry Vickers teaching?! Absolutely amazing! I’ll have to look and see how long it would take to drive there as it would be worth it to avoid the TSA.

himsee13 June 5, 2012 at 6:19 pm

This would be SO COOL. And – worth the trip out west.

wilddcatt9 June 5, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Now this is one package deal that has all the bells and whistles

kuoleva June 6, 2012 at 9:46 am

I have been wondering what Glock Vector Industries is adding to this giveaway or is it going to be a surprise for the winner? Whatever it is, its Glock so I’m sure it will be sweet!

wopspice June 8, 2012 at 2:59 pm

I’m wondering the same thing. That’d be awesome to have a nice G17 or so as a sidearm to run through the class with!

kuoleva June 8, 2012 at 8:04 pm

I was hoping maybe one of the new gen4 like the G32, which would be pretty sick. Anything from Glock would be undeniably sweet…

wopspice June 15, 2012 at 4:31 pm

I doubt it would be a gun giveaway (although that would be sick)…but if you look at their site they have a bunch of tactical stuff, so I would bet that they would provide some equipment to the winner that they could use in the class.

702 June 15, 2012 at 5:34 pm

I should update the page about GVI. They are sponsoring the event in a couple of ways but they will not be providing anything additional for this giveaway. However, they have given me one of their new PV17′s and there will be an upcoming announcement on how people may enter to win it.

All in good time. :)

TmoneyZ14 June 6, 2012 at 5:55 pm

As a Las Vegas local I would love to see this rifle end up in my hands, especially since the flat dark earth furniture would make sense in my desert. Here’s to hoping.

kquiazon June 7, 2012 at 2:21 am


kquiazon June 7, 2012 at 2:27 am

Read the giveaway rules. Disregard my previous post “In!” lol. What I meant to say was nice AR and training would be awesome! Thanks!

slickrick433 June 7, 2012 at 1:50 pm

awesome package. looks really light weight and the class is a definite plus for the carbine

AEMitchell June 7, 2012 at 11:02 pm

I just finished a two day Urban Rifle class. It was all about AR15′s. I had never shot or handled an AR15 before the class. The one I borrowed belonged to the instructor and it was her baby. It was all tricked out and it was sweet! (Like yours it was extremely light weight.) Wow, I had fun! Since then I’ve been shopping for an AR15 in a large enough caliber to go deer hunting and for self-defense. I look forward to hearing from you in the fall and having an excuse to fly out to take your class. A big thank you to all your sponsors!

AEMitchell July 9, 2012 at 2:58 pm

It’s been a month and I’m still excited about winning this AR15!

slindley44 June 8, 2012 at 9:58 am

Awesome rifle and I need classes.

wopspice June 8, 2012 at 3:04 pm

I have and love the Vickers sling on my current AR. Makes all of the other slings I have used in the past seem obsolete…granted I have never tried using a single point. Its nice to have the ability to adjust it with the strap and be able to transition fairly easily side to side while its still slung over your shoulder. I’ve only used it a couple times so looking forward to getting some instruction in the class on proper techniques.

gunnermax June 8, 2012 at 11:16 pm

Im in. I will take leave to fly out to Vegas for this if I win!

WEAPONEER_OWNER June 8, 2012 at 11:41 pm

would love to win the rifle, and review it on the weaponeer channel and as well as attend the class.

philpac33 June 9, 2012 at 11:20 am

Taking a Vicker’s class is at the top of my training wish list. And winning that rifle would absolutely make my year. I’m most definitely looking forward to this road trip.

702evilmonkey June 9, 2012 at 12:44 pm

this AR is awesome

awloe June 9, 2012 at 3:06 pm

I have my CPL and have a nice collection of hand guns. Just got an AK clone and would love to add an AR 15 type rifle. I think I can squeeze one more long gun in my gun safe.

sbattaglia87 June 9, 2012 at 3:18 pm

I think that it is just awesome that this is available to everyone. even those who are currently protecting our freedoms over seas.

renamoore31 June 9, 2012 at 5:44 pm

WOW, what an awesome give away. Your not just giving away a training class, but the weapon and ammo to train with and the fact that the weapon comes with a ton of upgades makes my entry worth the time.

boostaddicted05 June 9, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Would love to own this gun, and im a local las vegan.

kc9hvw June 9, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Thank you for the opportunity to win this incredible package!
I’ve been looking forward to purchasing an AR15 soon, and this is a better way to acquire (and get to know) one!

MannyF June 9, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Wow, that’s an excellent package; having the rifle, ammo and a training class just makes sense. I’ll be honest, I came here for the giveaway. However I’ve looked around the site and I like what I see: great content provided in a down-to-earth regular Joe manner. I’ll definitely visiting this site regularly.

702 June 9, 2012 at 9:59 pm

My evil plan is working. ;)

ewilmore88 June 9, 2012 at 9:38 pm

Gotta increase my chances at winning this awesome set up and class. I would love to take instruction from LAV and get to run it with this rifle. Can’t wait for the results of this one. A sincere Thank You to all that made this happen!

eap42027 June 10, 2012 at 11:00 am

This AR looks great but in person it is so much more awesome! The AR alone would be a great give away prize and with all the extras to include tactical training with Larry Vicker this is priceless!!! All I can say is AR-15… come to papa!!

twency June 10, 2012 at 3:32 pm

This is exciting. My only rifle was designed more than 100 years ago. Much as I like it I would love for it to share space in the safe with a modern sporting rifle, and this looks like a beautiful piece. My unadorned Winchester Model 93 would make a great “odd couple” complement to this decked-out and loaded modern semi-auto rifle.

freddie June 10, 2012 at 4:28 pm

I have saw alot of AR rifles, and there are a zillion of them but i saw this one at the gun show in Las Vegas on Saturday and it is awesome,would love it.

kuoleva June 10, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I had the chance to hold this sick AR again so I thought I would post a comment about it. I still can’t get over how lightweight it is, light enough to carry and run hard all day. This gun stuck out like a sore thumb amongst all of the other AR’s at the gun show, none even came close to how sleek this rifle is. I’m so stoked for October to come around to see if my wish comes true, and win this badass rifle!!! It was also nice to meet Ben Bunker and 702 again at the Gun show yesterday. Thanks for the couple of laughs on my behalf. ;)

Dascarecrow72 June 11, 2012 at 9:14 am

Great giveaway. In for the win.

mlavigne3 June 11, 2012 at 6:04 pm

I’m going to reserve a spot in my gunsafe just for this one! I’ve never really won anything in a raffle, but there’s a first time for everything!! Fingers crossed!!!

gsconzert June 12, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Count me in! I would love to win this!

Warlock June 12, 2012 at 4:05 pm

This has to be the overall most fantastic gun giveaway I have ever seen! I HATE driving in the West but I would sell blood if I had to get there for this!

TheOnlyEasyDayWasYesterday June 13, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Never won anything before but it’s worth a shot.

I would love to go back to Vegas… especially with a brand new rifle!

centrl8090 June 14, 2012 at 12:24 am

nice prize and I already live in Vegas…SWEEET! :)

Altoids June 14, 2012 at 4:57 am

I’m in!

702 June 14, 2012 at 11:25 am

Not really. You may have entered twice but you haven’t even read the rules once.

I just wanted to state that today the U.S. Army turns 237, and looks better than ever. A giant thank you goes to all the men and women, past and present, for the many years of service.

This is not an entry… just a follow up from when I posted awhile back….

This dream package would be great for home defense after the marvelous training session… Only wish everyone could win one… Good luck to all…

rdzone1 June 14, 2012 at 5:50 pm

What a great package deal. A custom AR with all the bling and a 3 day class with Larry Vickers! Looks like a lot of work went into that weapon. Sure hope I have a chance, it would be a long trip from Alaska, but I am sure it would be well worth the trip!

Just a comment I would like to send out to “702 Shooter”…
“Thank you!”
You have put together a beautiful and informative web site…
I don’t think most people realize the effort that went into making this site…
It is not only packed with information… But it shows someone or probably a group of dedicated people who really care about the sport of shooting…
And then you take it one step further… You go out of your way to add the giveaway programs which introduce us to a wide range of products we might not run across or only dream about on our wish list…
Talk about adding “sprinkles” to the ice cream…
The word “dedication” comes to mine… Only those who have worked with vendors to pry some free sample, to be able to make these offers available, can really appreciate the work you do… (And some of those offers have been just unbelievable…)
So once again I say, “Thank you” and I would like to think there are many, many more unspoken heartfelt “Thanks” out there…

To all you shooters out there, please make sure all your friends are registered to vote. The future of our sport depends on it. From Illinois I have seen us lose range after range as one of the many tactics used to inhibit our ability to practice and discourage us. Take nothing for granted this year, we must vote to stop this encroachment on the 2nd amendment and our freedom…

Always remember, “Freedom is not Free, It requires eternal vigilance…”. And least we forget, as Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Thank you, “702 Shooter”…

702 June 14, 2012 at 7:09 pm

You’re very welcome. Thank you for the kind words.

loki689 June 14, 2012 at 9:42 pm

I would love to have this setup to go out and shoot.


drutt June 15, 2012 at 7:32 am

This course is on my birthday weekend. Sign me up.

doorkicker June 15, 2012 at 8:26 am

I would give that AR a nice home.

eggheadlincoln June 15, 2012 at 11:26 am

What an amazing package to giveaway! Who wouldn’t like this deal? A 3 day carbine class with Larry Vickers alone would be worth the trip. Then to add a BCM AR-15 lightweight carbine to the mix is just out the box. You guys rock!!!!
Thanks for the chance of a lifetime.

buddy June 15, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Another great write up and another great giveaway….. Thanks to all involved….

Quick question for you, has the rifle been taken out to the range and tested and if it has will you be doing a write up on the performance? Thanks again to 702 for all the reviews

702 June 15, 2012 at 1:57 pm

The rifle is unfired and will remain that way until either Larry or the winner take the first shots with it.

kuoleva June 16, 2012 at 2:04 pm

702, LAV, and Ben Bunker will absolutely get to shoot it first, if I was to win… I can’t wait till the end of October to see if I’m the one… You guys are the best!!!

Frank June 15, 2012 at 12:50 pm

This is a great giveaway, thanks to everyone involved in puting this together. One person will be a very lucky indeed, I just hope its me.

jrm June 15, 2012 at 12:54 pm

awesome giveaway!

jrm June 15, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Awesome Giveaway! I can’t imagine a better set up for or a beginner or experienced carbine user throw in the training and ammo just awesome.

joseph98 June 15, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Thats a pretty awesome set up…… Send it my way :-)

wopspice June 15, 2012 at 4:39 pm

702 – Another question about the class. I’ve been researching some other classes in my area (thanks again for the suggestion) and even most of the Lv1 classes require you to have additional equipment (mag pouches, etc) and incorporate sidearm training/transitions in the class. Are there any additional requirements for that equipment beyond what’s stated above…and any chance of getting to work with a sidearm as well?

702 June 15, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Some details are still being worked out but it’s VERY likely that some pistol instruction will also be given.

benbunker June 19, 2012 at 8:49 am

LAV said he’d do some pistol transition work in this class, so bringing a pistol and some ammo (100-200 rds) would be a good idea. It is still primarily a carbine class. As far as gear, bring something that will hold some magazines on your body and whatever else you typically train with.

wopspice July 9, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Awesome…will do. Aside from just going to the range I haven’t done any “training” so this would be my first experience. If I don’t get this rifle/class I’ll be looking to get into something else. We don’t have too many spots here in Los Angeles where we can do more than sit/stand at a bench and shoot at paper.

440deluxe June 16, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Sounds like a heap of fun with some nice gear to boot. Count me in!

440deluxe June 16, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Sorry for the pervious one sentence comment to enter. In the excitement of the moment I registered and entered before I read the rules. As a former member of an USMC helo squadron maintenance dept. all my rifle experience was shooting the standard qualification course over and over. I would love to take advantage of the opportunity for some tacticle instruction. I would gladly take days off work without pay if I had to and drive ALL THE WAY from NW Vegas!
