** This giveaway has ended, but be sure to check the Inside Gun Digest Books blog for more chances to win great Gun Digest books.**
Since the book blog began, many of you have mentioned military service. Just last week, “jarhead” talked about his “all-expense-paid trip to Vietnam.” Last month, in our discussion of combat handguns, “chet” fondly remembered the Mauser 1910-34 auto-loading pistol his grandfather (a POW) brought back from Germany, and “hardcase” talked about the 1911 he carried in the Navy.
To recognize (in a small, but sincere, way) the time so many of us spent in military service, this week one lucky winner will get two books: the recently-released 6th edition of the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms, edited by Phillip Peterson, and Tactical Pistol Shooting by Erik Lawrence.
To enter the random drawing, post a comment below telling us how many years you spent in military service, and/or the time spent by family members – fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children. It'll be interesting to see how many total years we'll have in our blog group.
Entries will be accepted until midnight Sunday (Oct. 9), and we’ll announce the winner on Monday (Oct. 10).
Good luck in the drawing, and thank you.
One entry per person, please.
Entries accepted until 11:59 pm Central Time Sunday, Oct. 9, 2011.
Winner will be selected at random and announced Monday, Oct. 10, 2011.
