Ups the Ante for the 2015 Flex Your Guns Photo Contest

The guys from make great steel targets for everything from airsoft to .50 BMG.

We reviewed their airsoft / pellet plates last year and we liked them so much we bought some:

We also did a quick walkthrough of their portable gong hanger kit and why their manufacturing process puts them ahead of other target makers.

Additionally, we’ve been shooting their targets this season at QSI Training classes, and they are really really nice.

That’s why we were really excited when they offered to give away three 5/16″ steel targets to this year’s winner of the Flex Your Guns photo contest.

5/16″ 4″ hanger

5/16″ 7″ hanger

5/16″ 9″ static

All targets are rated up to .45 ACP and do not come with mounting hardware / shepherd’s hooks.

We are honored that has donated these items to the contest. Please support them; they are an American-owned business that buys almost all of their materials (and all of their steel) from US companies.

How this effects the contest

The entry with the most votes will get to select their prize: a $50 coupon to Brownells or Combat Flip Flops OR the target package from The second place entry will get the remaining prize package.

There isn’t a lot of time left, so send in your entries!

Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • At least one photo of your firearm. Send me photos of short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, point defense weapons, SMGs, AR pistols, or any type of firearm that would fit the theme of this blog.
  • Any details about it that you think other readers would find interesting, such as barrel length, important or unusual components, rarity, etc.
  • One reason you love it or hate it.
  • Email photos of your gun to [email protected]

Here are the contest details:

  • I will choose the firearms to feature each Thursday by myself.
  • You can enter as many times as you want, but once your firearm is featured on a Thursday you can’t submit again for the same contest.
  • Once we hit 10 weeks, the readers (that’s you!) will vote on who wins out of the pre-selected firearms. My own submissions (if any) won’t count.
  • The contest will end on June 18, 2015.
  • Judging will start on June 19, 2015 and close at 11:59PM CDT June 24, 2015.
  • The winner will be notified on June 25, 2015.
  • If your photo is chosen by the community you’ll have five business days to email me a picture of the firearm you submitted plus a piece of paper with your email address written on it. This is very important to make sure the firearm is actually yours. Our friends in law enforcement may enter their unit’s firearms as long as they can provide the evidence linking their email address to their photo.
  • The winner will get their gift card via email, so make sure you send me your photos from a valid email account!

Show us what you’ve got!
