The sixth annual Gun Blogger Rendezvous is only a month away, and there’s even more stuff to win this year. In addition to the Ruger Blackhawk that Bea is donating, Ruger is also donating another firearm to be determined, Glock has donated a certificate for any standard Glock pistol, MKS Supply will probably be donating another Hi Point Carbine (they’ve donated a firearm to the Rendezvous every year since its inception), and I have been informed by email that Weatherby is donating a PA-08 pump-action shotgun. That’s at least four and possibly five firearms, and more may be coming.
But not only firearms will be given away in Saturday’s raffle. Leupold is donating one of their VX-R Patrol scopes and a couple of game trail cameras, Pro-Ears is donating one of their electronic ear muffs, Woolrich is donating about a thousand dollars worth of their tactical clothing to one lucky winner, and there will be the usual other goodies like AR-15 magazines, range bags (Brownell’s makes a damned fine range bag), t-shirts (I’m bringing two Kalashnikitty shirts donated by the maker and one S&B “bullet” vacuum-packed shirt I got at Bulletfest 2011), cleaning supplies, lubricants, and more!
In addition, you can hob-nob with (and shoot beside) celebrities like Alan Gura, Smith & Wesson sponsored shooter Molly Smith, and possibly stars from the first season of Top Shot.
And remember, it’s all for a good cause: Project VALOUR-IT. Here’s the founder, Maj. Chuck Zeigenfuss talking about how Project VALOUR-IT came about:
Chuck has attended two Rendezvous, but won’t be able to make this year’s since he is currently stationed in Hawaii.
We’ll be shooting Friday, Saturday and Sunday again this year. Friday will be “shoot what ya brung,” Saturday will be Steel Challenge, sponsored in part by Sig (which ought to be very interesting!) Sunday once again will be Cowboy Fast Draw. Here are some videos from previous Rendezvous:
You don’t have to be a blogger, readers are more than welcome! So scrape your pennies together, make your reservations and come enjoy a great weekend with a great bunch of people. Gun Blogger Rendezvous VI is coming!
