    Default Well I guess it actually can happen...!!!

    I'm sure I'm like most of you when it comes to winning any kind of drawing or raffle. I do have to say though that recently, and I gotta be real careful now as I don't wanna jinx myself here, I have been pretty lucky the last few years when it comes to drawing permits. But when it comes to merchandise or any of that kind of thing, I really can't remember when, if ever, I've ever won anything?

    Well last week I opened up my email inbox and to my extreme surprise Doug, at Cameraland, congratulated me and told me that I had won a new Vortex rifle scope...!!! I just received the CrossfireII 3x9x40 Dead-Hold BDC yesterday, and I have to say, she sure is looking pretty nice. The neat thing about it is that I didn't put in for it just to try and win something, I actually have been checking into Doug's site a bit more lately as I really have wanted a new scope for my 270 as my old eyes have changed and I really don't like the scope I have on it anymore. So this makes it even more special to me!

    All I can say guys is don't give up when it comes to putting in for things like this that you would like to have......as you can see, it COULD happen...!!! I would imagine those 3 Power Ball winners never thought they would have a chance either. The fact is, somebody has to win these things and it may as well just be you....right...???!!!

    So thanks very much Doug for doing this for me/us. As well as a special thanks going out to Mike for having this site, as without it I'm pretty sure it never would have happened.

    I'll let you all know what I think about the scope once I throw it on the rifle and get er' all sighted in....

    Until then....YEEEEHAAAA...!!!

    Hey congrats! I think you may be the first AOD Member to win. That I remember anyway.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    Sorry, I've actually won twice, 1st time about 4 years ago and the last time about 3 years ago, both times were binos. Good to see another AOD winner.

    Yeah, the wife got the Minox for bird watching and I gave the Nikons to one of my sons.
