Giveaway: RESULTS

Last weekend I put up a post offering up an Aimpoint just for guessing how much ammo was in the bowl. I let it run the week and got a pretty good handful of guesses.

Last night I dumped, sorted, counted, and photographed.

Clockwise from the top:
- 8 12ga shells
- 16 .45ACP
- 7 .357Mag
- 12 .38Spl.
- 20 .22LR
- 20 9mm
- 6 .44Spl
- 2 .223Rem

For a grand total of 91 cartridges.
That just happens to be the exact guess posted by the one and only...
Now, his prize... I said it was an Aimpoint, and I didn't lie. I said it was a working Aimpoint, and I didn't lie.
I didn't say what vintage Aimpoint it is. So here it is, in all its glory:

Yes, kids, Libertyman is proud new owner of a genuine Aimpoint 1000. This particular optic is guaranteed at least old enough to drink, as the model was discontinued in 1991. (Libertyman, the manual is available at the above link.) And because I'm a nice guy, I'm going to include a card of fresh batteries - it uses two 357 button cells.

Drop me an email and let me know where to send your prize!

Turn your head first, Phssthpok. ;-)

I haven't forgotten you; I'm going to consolidate trips to the post office at this point - hopefully tomorrow.
