Shooter and Scribe
Lucky Gunner is excited to announce our first "Shooter & Scribe" writing contest.
Please note: Submissions for this contest are now CLOSED. To see the finalists and the winning entry, please head to Lucky Gunner Labs.
Do you know something unique or novel that your fellow shooters would find interesting? Is there some industry myth you’d like to set the record straight on? Can you share some little known fact or history lesson that would surprise us? Do you have a strong, well-articulated opinion about a controversial industry topic? Do you have inside knowledge or “behind the scenes” access to something the rest of us don’t?
And most importantly, would you like to win some free ammo?
Three lucky and skilled writers are going to win one of the following prizes:
