I had a post up for 24 hours yesterday taking entries on a giveaway for a Contour Picatinny Camera Mount from Strikemark.

Almost all you guys read the directions properly, and the comments were hilarious which was a bonus.

And the winner is….

#53358 – TB

Congrats TB.  Remember bros.. don’t hate, congratulate.

I didn’t lie when I said i’d try to do lots of giveaways did I?  :P



A comfortable way to carry an injured person to safety:

Skip to 40 seconds to see it in action.

Basically it looks like a regular safety harness with arm loops on it for the person doing the carrying.  I could have sworn these things have existed for years.

The manufacturer Agilite is selling them for $80 – HERE

Maximum tensile strength: 5000 lbs.   Narrowly within Rosie O’Donnell carrying range.

Strikemark tossed another one my way to give to you guys:

One piece aluminum construction -no plastic clips or additional attachments needed. The tight aluminum fit and friction bond created by the anodized finish provides the snuggest of fits while still allowing for quick detachment. The Strikemark picatinny mount is compatible with the Contour camera’s railed grooves and is designed to elevate your HD camera experience. Seconds to install -slide the mount over the rail, tighten, and slide in your Contour camera just like you would any other mount.

Split the rifle in half and put it in your sweet complimentary skinny backpack:

The barrel and forend of the Ruger 10/22 Takedown are easily separated from the action and buttstock by pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies, and pulling them apart. Reassembly is the reverse of takedown, and is quick and easy.

A closer look at it in a video from Jeff Quinn from Gunblast:

  • You can check out his review and a lot more pictures – HERE
  • The 10/22 Takedown page on Ruger’s website (MSRP $389) – HERE

The 10/22 is awesome, and if this takedown model shoots as well as a fixed model then they should still a KaJillion of these.

How long until someone buys this and gives their kid the backpack to use for school? Which in turn results in the SWAT team showing up and the media going nuts.

Is it available for sale at a lot of retailers?  I ask this because Ruger said last week that they were not accepting new orders again until the end of May.

Congrats Calvin, you’ll be contacted for your mailing address.   Don’t worry, I won’t tell the angry mob of non-winners with pitchforks where you live.

As always… stay tuned for more giveaways.



It appears this guy really does not like his left hand:

Herp to the power of derp.  That’s all I have to say about this.
