I received a glorious email today from the NRA notifying me I had been drawn as a winner for their Bullseye Sweepstakes! My heart was pounding, my adrenaline started kicking in, and I frantically began scanning through paragraphs to see what gun, hunting trip, or vehicle I had won! I got so pumped, I began smiling as I started to call out for my wife so that she could share in my moment of complete bliss.

I finally found the paragraph listing what I won and saw that I was drawn for 10th place. I was one of 500 winners of a Nylon Velcro NRA wallet. Now its not that I don’t like free stuff no matter what it is, but they should start out the email with that. Man they got my hopes up so high and then pulled the rug right out from under me lol. I spent the rest of the day laughing at myself for the foolish goofy look on my face and for the way my excited emotions got out of control. If you guys could have seen me in that moment I looked like a kid on Christmas morning, haha.

I figured the someone else out there would get a good kick out of the story and could share a good laugh at my expense. 

Those who would sacrafice their freedom for a little bit of security deserve neither.
Always Forward.

Congrats on the win, even if it is just a wallet.

I know the feeling.  Thanks for the laugh.

At least you got the thrill of the win for a little while! If they’d started off telling you what you won you wouldn’t have got to experience the heart racing excitement hah.

Ya but then I always wouldn’t appear or feel so foolish in the long run.

At least you won something! Good for you.

Last time I renewed my NRA membership the letter said I would get a free nylon equipment bag of some sort. It has been several years and I am still waiting for the bag to arrive.

I am sure you will have better luck than I did.

Hi CH. I am doing fine but don’t surf by this site nearly as often as in the past. How are you? I see you don’t drop in as often either.

Been tuning up the trusty Scout or should say the rusty Scout for one more elk hunting trip to the Glenwood Springs area. Haven’t gone for a couple years so I am already getting excited about it. Also training for a powerlifting contest this December. First one of those in two years too. So I hope to finish out the year with an elk and some big lifting numbers.

Overall I’m good, Bob.  Had a rough patch but seem to be doing okay now. I’m trying to hang out more often here on the forum but life does get in the way, as you know.

Now that’s something you can pass down for generations. You may want to go ahead and give it away now hah.

Ya thats the plan. I’m gonna give it to my oldest son. I’m sure it will drive his school crazy which will give me another level of satisfaction.
