FREE .22 LR Ammo to TGO & NRA Members

Recommended Posts

We have all seen and heard enough bitching about the .22 LR shortage to last us a lifetime. Good news is rare and very short-lived, with any potential supplies drying up faster than water in the desert.


Well I was recently lucky enough to purchase one brick of CCI .22 LR from Cabelas which I ordered about a week ago via a link found on Slickdeals.net (before a similar link was shared on TGO, causing a certain amount of controversy and yet more bitching). Now I didn't really expect to receive this ammo, as I had attempted to order .22 LR from Cabelas at least 4 other times over the past few months, only to have Cabelas take my money, make me wait a week each time, then cancel my orders without any explanation other than a generic "sold out" email. So I was pleasantly surprised when this 5th order for a single brick actually arrived today, and I decided to do something positive with the ammo. Please understand that I really do need and value this ammo (just like many of you), as I teach a lot of new and young shooters in addition to supplying many of my family and friends that have no other means of shooting, not to mention my own personal shooting. But I am still willing to give some of this ammo away just to offset some of the bad news and bitching that has been so prevalent in recent times, in hopes of returning at least a small amount of joy to the sport for a few of us.


So here is how it will work:

  1. I will giveaway 2 boxes (100 rds.) of CCI Blazer .22 LR ammo absolutely free to 3 separate TGO members.
  2. Winners must be current NRA members or agree to join upon winning - I will verify your membership.
  3. Winners must meet in Lebanon area for delivery, as it's not cost effective for either of us to drive far for free ammo.
  4. No reselling the ammo.

To enter the drawing:

  1. Reply to this thread with any 3-digit number of your choice.
  2. Once we have enough entries (likely within a week or two) I will lock the thread and the winner will be determined by the 3-digit TN daily lottery number which is drawn on that night.
  3. Closest number wins. In the event of a tie, the member with the highest TGO post count will win.

Good luck!

Appreciate the comments from those offering to donate to the kids. That's one reason why I'm keeping the other 4 boxes and not raffling the whole brick. If you win I'd prefer that you teach some kids or new shooters as well, but if you can't do that then I'll pick one of my students to give the extra ammo to on your behalf. Edited by wileecoyote

This is an excellent thing you are doing.  :up:



This is what TGO needs right now, people being nicer to each other and helping out.


I am not going to put in a number because I do not NEED the ammo. I would much rather someone else who does need it get it.

      Have decided now is as good as time as any to sell a few of the guns I have accumulated over the years - starting with those I rarely if ever shoot.  Will try to post an ad here - the mechanics of this forum are new to me so please be patient if I mess up with the pictures or protocols.
      First up is my HK P7 M8 in 9mm.  I  bought this gun "new" back in the early 90s and its sat in my safe pretty much the entire time.  The reason I say "new" is that its one of the West German police trade ins that were refurbished by HK to like new and put on the market in a new box  As such it doesn't garner the full premium many P7s do nowadays, but its still a genuine HK P7 in nice shape  and still rare as hens teeth.  It comes with the original box with matching serial numbers, original brush and scraper, original manual, and the 2 original mags.  The box is flawless.  The manual has some oil stains on it from setting on top of the gun in the case.  The gun itself has a slight mark near the muzzle on one side where it sat on the hard plastic divider in the box for 20 years, plus it has a slight discoloring in the bluing on the  rear of the slide, which is typical for these WG trade ins as they reblued them in kind of a funky plum color.  If you are unfamiliar with the P7 its a really cool gun.  It utilizes a squeeze cocker type action, along with a delayed gas blowback, and a fixed barrel.  All of this combines to make the gun extremely accurate and soft shooting, although being an all steel handgun its a little heavy compared to something like a Glock.
      The price is $1600 face to face within reasonable driving distance to Wilson County, and must have TN HCP and do the bill of sale thing.  Alternatively the price is $1635 (USPS money order) plus actual shipping costs to ship from my FFL to yours.   
      Now, hopefully I can figure out the picture posting thing....

      I got this about 5 years ago from my uncle. He got it sometime in the 40's that's all I know about the history of it.
      From the S/N I would say it was made sometime in mid 1885.
      I would say it has about 95%+ of the nickel still on it and the barrel looks great for something this old.
      I'm asking $600 and that is because the barrel looks better than any one of these I have ever seen.
