[su_dropcap style=”light” size=”4″]W[/su_dropcap]elcome to 2016! [lots of confetti and fireworks here]
If you are reading this then you have made it safely to the other side, but what do we have to look forward to in 2016? Well, just in case you couldn’t think of anything, the US National Park Service will turn 100 years old this year, the Olympic Games will be held in Rio, the American Shooting Journal will officially celebrate one full year in publication and Star Trek will have first aired 50 years ago. Also, let’s not forget that we will elect a new commander in chief.
One of the first things on every shooter’s mind at the beginning of each year is finding out what will be unveiled at the annual NSSF SHOT Show, the largest gun-industry show in the world. Well, [brushing my fingers across my shirt with an air of all-knowing insight] I can tell you that this issue will give you the downright, all-out breakdown of all that is new this year. Some items are so new that photos have not yet been unveiled, but we were still able to scope out the specs.
If you are attending, you must come by the American Shooting Journal booth #408. We are featuring an enormous raffle wheel that simply won’t stop spinning from day one. Crazy prizes such as .308 ARs (two), one from RTD Mfg./Arms and one from Layke Tactical, a 1911 Government-model pistol from Inland Mfg., an MXB Sniper Lite Crossbow, Hogue hatchets, Spyderco/Coast/Cold Steel knives, a chronograph from Shooting Chrony, KICK-EEZ recoil pads, N82 Tactical holsters, cleaning tools, patches – the list is ridiculous, and every spin wins! All you have to do is bring your Golden Ticket.
“How do I get a Golden Ticket?” you must be thinking to yourself. Well, there are a few ways. The best way is to go to your computer right now and download your very own Golden Ticket from our website at AmericanShootingJournal.com. Just click the link and VOILA! Bring that ticket to the booth and spin. The spin is not for a chance to win; it decides what you win. Remember, every spin wins! I think I said that already.
Another way to get your Golden Ticket is to visit any of the following booths during the show and say, “I want my Golden Ticket.” They may measure you up for worthiness though. Just strong-arm them into compliance. The prizes are worth it! Happy New Year – It’s going to be epic!
