Chris Kyle – American Gun (Book Giveaway)

14 copies of the awesome new book up for grabs:

Chris-Kyle-American-Gun-Book

At the time of his tragic death in February 2013, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the top sniper in U.S. military history, was finishing one of the most exciting missions of his life: a remarkable book that retold American history through the lens of a hand-selected list of firearms. Kyle masterfully shows how guns have played a fascinating, indispensable, and often underappreciated role in our national story.

“Perhaps more than any other nation in the world,” Kyle writes, “the history of the United States has been shaped by the gun. Firearms secured the first Europeans’ hold on the continent, opened the frontier, helped win our independence, settled the West, kept law and order, and defeated tyranny across the world.”

Filled with an unforgettable cast of characters, Chris Kyle’s American Gun is a sweeping epic of bravery, adventure, invention, and sacrifice.

Here’s how it will go down:  I’ll be giving away 4 copies here on the blog, 5 on Instagram, and 5 on Facebook.  Only enter each giveaway once, but you can enter all of them if you wish.  If you happen to be randomly selected as a winner for more than one though you’ll only be getting one book, and I’ll redraw.

How To Enter:

Blog – Tell me why you love or hate ENDO in the comments on this post (trolling me is welcome, I always get a rise out of it).  Use a valid email address though so I can get a hold of you.

Instagram – Like THIS VIDEO on instagram.  Yea I’m fancy and used the new video feature for kicks, and to show off how nice the book actually looks.

Facebook – Click the share link on the facebook post for this blog entry to share it with your friends.

I will be using random.org to pick winners sometime this week.  The books will be shipped out to the lucky 14 by the gracious publisher William Morrow / Harper Collins.

Make sure to pick up a copy over at Amazon if giveaways aren’t your thing or you don’t win one of these!

Good luck everyone!  I’ll try and run some more giveaways soon.

First.

But really, ENDO brings me laughter even if its unintentional laughter. But who can honestly hold back giggles and face palms when watching vids by Mr. Yeager and the clowns over at VS?!

I hate Endo because you always link to the same shit from the same people, you never really post too much new shit. Also, the most shit tier video/channel will get linked if they’re wearing one of your shirts. You also like to delete comments and ban users from commenting – like a little bitch.

FirstWorldProblems June 25, 2013 at 05:33 pm

Hey! I feel like you should give me this book, and I do not like this blog! As an American, I get things for attributing to society and buying American products. I have to deal with huge annoying things in my life, like when my mouse cord gets tugged on something when I’m playing online video games or when my drink gets too fizzy and gets Pepsi on the stamps I was about to use to mail the CMP!

Furthermore, the crosswalk near my house doesn’t make sounds when I am allowed to cross. I pay my taxes! I should get the fucking beep when I cross the street! Don’t you guys agree? Another HUGE problem I have at the moment is that when typing so much on this TINY box, that I can’t enlarge because it’d get out of the Leave Comment box and look ugly, it gets very laggy and I cannot properly hit the arrow keys to move back and fix something!

Now to get to why I dislike ENDO, I bought the Assault Weapons Ban shirt and I find that it is just TOO soft. Whenever I wear it I just get so fucking comfy I need to lie down and I can’t go out and do the stuff I need to do! I also get really self-conscious on whether people will think I’m a huge NERD when they see me wearing a shirt about assault weapons in California!

Another thing, how come you need to update the blog EVERY day? It gets too overwhelming! I believe you should take a few days off every week. If I ever forget to go on the site, I come back to SEVERAL posts and I take way too much time out of my day to look at all of them! This is seriously ruining my enjoyment of the website!

Does anyone run into these problems as same as I do? Of course you do. These are just unbelievable and I think Mike should fix ALL OF THESE immediately because I can’t clean my stamps with this shirt because its too soft and I don’t want to get it dirty with soda!

And how come the Desert Eagle shirt he made has the new Picatinny rail? Its so ugly compared to the old Weaver mounts that the Israel-built Deags had! Its such a turn-off! I wanted to see if MAYBE that shirt would be a little more coarse and uncomfortable so I could go and do stuff while wearing it, but I can’t because I’d get laughed at for the big fat rail on the slide!

Anyway, I hope this book does these following ten things.

1) The book beeps when I’m supposed to read it.
2) The book won’t get messy all over my stamps
3) The book won’t be soft
4) The book won’t have a picatinny rail
5) The book doesn’t get stuff added everyday!
6) The book isn’t in a tiny box
7) The book isn’t laggy
8) The book doesn’t tug on my mouse cord
9) The book can be used to clean spills
10) The book won’t make me look like a gun nut

Please take these into consideration!

I deserve to win. 100%. Its just way too hot out right now and my fan makes this really loud buzzing noise so whenever I’m playing video games and I use my microphone all my friends make fun of me and ask me what I’m blending in the background, so I have to turn it off and I get all sweaty and I’m so uncomfortable I just can’t play my damn game.

That AWB shirt is just unbearable when sweaty. It just feels weird and sticks to my skin, but its really soft so I feel like I’m being hugged to death by a burning Carebear while drowning in a bathtub. I can’t believe Mike doesn’t include air-conditioning with his shirt because without it the shirt might as well be a plate carrier full of water bottles that someone poked holes in! A leaky water plate carrier is exactly like this shirt in hot conditions because its wet, its not acceptable to wear in public, and taking it into combat won’t help you at all!

I just want to take the time to say, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the contest; it’s just that it’s such a good opportunity the contest being here and all, that ENDO has really changed my life. I mean I just used to be such a tool not operating in operations or anything, although I do work in a hospital operating room doing surgical operations (that is what I do actually). It’s just that I feel so liberated from the pressures of industry professionals you know? I mean if it wasn’t for ENDO I would feel like maybe I needed to pay attention to Buck Yeager or that Haley Strategic was a good source for skin care products or that I really NEEDED to buy that helmet-carrier-pod-thing Costa made Blue Force Gear make him for when he jumps sharks. Do you get what I’m saying? I just feel like you’ve really allowed me to free my mind. Yeah! F$%^ yeah! I’m just thinking you know? Really THINKING! Like, for myself, with my own mind. I just. I just love you man. Cause where would I be with out ENDO blog? Your there for me like every day. It’s that commitment I just can’t find anywhere else. Cause when I get home and it’s like 3am and I’ve been operating in operations at the surgical operating suite all night; there you are with fresh posts. I need ENDO. NEED!

No but really, give me the book, I need something to read when I’m stuck at work till 5am and it’s slow.

I hate ENDO because it seems to be becoming less of “the good, the bad, and the derpy of gun related content” and more “videos of people wearing my shirts (which you should totally buy).”
