I was told it was OK to post this to the "appropriate forum." I think this is the appropriate forum but please let me know if it is not and/or adjust as needed!

I usually do not do promotions but people seem to like them so here's what I have to offer in this "223 Giveaway" for those who are interested ...


2 ea. ($35.00 value each) – NRA One Year Memberships (https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/signup.asp) (New membership or renewal)
2 ea. ($49.95 value each) – NM Collector Software Lifetime Activation on Custom USB Flash Drive ( I will also cover the USPS priority shipping – a $6.00 value)
3 ea. ($29.95 value each) – NM Collector Software Lifetime Activation delivered via email only
Plus a kicker – the first 100 people who respond to the offer on this forum will be eligible for a free (after a rebate) copy of NM Gun Collecting Software for the Android (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.nmcollectorsoftware.nmguns). Due to the Google App distribution setup, a purchase will be required but I will refund the purchase price. I would appreciate a 5 star review on Google Play in exchange if the winners think the software deserves it.

Descriptions:

NM Collector Software (http://www.nmcollectorsoftware.com/)

Keep track of every aspect of your collection with this database program. Create detailed files on individual items with custom fields for any type of collection. For example, you can track model, serial number, purchase date, purchase price, sale price, and appraised value—even lets you attach photos to each entry. Searchable database has a statistics feature that lets you track both the appraised and realized value of individual items, or your entire collection. Print hard copy reports (including ATF compliant firearms A&D) and personalized tags, even customize the screen appearance, modify or add field headings, and add your own drop-down values. This is the same software sold by Brownells (http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=32292/Product/GUN-COLLECTOR-SOFTWARE) and the Gun Digest Store (http://www.gundigeststore.com/nm-firearms-collector-software-u1033?et_mid=555305&rid=1977525).

NM Collector Software is a desktop application written in Java using an embedded Derby database. The database can be encrypted or not depending on your needs and preferences. NM Collector is designed to be run on any computer that has Java 6 (or greater) installed. Java 6 is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is a very stable platform that has been around for many years with no foreseeable end to its availability on these platforms.

Please see this related calguns forum post (http://calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=604778) for examples of how NM Collector Software can help you with your collections.

NM Gun Collecting Software for the Android (http://www.nmandroid.com/)

Use this simple no-nonsense collecting software for Android devices to capture key information (including pictures, identification, receipt and disposition) for your gun collection. Can be used stand-alone or in conjunction with the desktop version of NM Collector Software. The intent of this Android application is to work in conjunction with the Desktop version of NM Collector Software which makes it easy to input data. That data can then be easily transferred to your mobile device to take with you and make minor adjustments (like easily adding pictures) as necessary on the go and then uploading the changes back to the desktop. Although the mobile apps allow you to enter data from scratch, they are not meant to be the primary means of data entry.

Contest Rules:

Everybody who responds to this post will be eligible to win. Drawings will be held on or about the weekend of September 1. Winners will be contacted via forum private messaging to protect their privacy. However, since this promotion must be subject to audit the winning userIds will be given to official Calguns representatives if requested.

It could be if from an unreliable source. However, I am a gun collector myself with many years of writing software for gun collectors. There is no virus or behind the scenes shenanigans going on. My software has been tested by many independent groups who found no malware (viruses, trojan horses, etc.) and there is no unsolicited network traffic - the only network traffic occurs when you click a link. I invite anyone to test it for network traffic and report back what they found.

Please let me know if you have any specific concerns you would like to see answered or addressed.

Thanks!

It should be good to go for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). I do not have an Android 4.1 device to test it directly on but I see there are already active installs on Android 4.1 devices from my Google Play store. Are you encountering any problems with it?

Quick question for you. Using your software, can I make a digital report that has the basics of my collection(make, model, serial, value), and email it to my insurance agent that he can open without him buying a copy of your software?

I guess what I'm asking is could I export it into something common such as excel or adobe?

Thanks

Yes you can export to excel. You can also save insurance reports (with or without pictures) as PDF files.

You can find this very example as the first topic in my "User Stories (http://www.nmcollectorsoftware.com/#usageScenarios)" section of my home page.

Thanks for the great question.

I can't say for sure. I have never owned or used Guntracker. However, if it can export your data to Excel you should be able to reformat it in Excel to import it into NM Collector.

I have a complete write up of the process for another collecting software package that another customer asked me to help them migrate their data from. You can find it here in my "Import Data from My Collection Explorer to NM Collector Software (http://www.nmcollectorsoftware.com/examples/ImportFromMyCollectionExplorer/)" write up.

If Guntracker does export to Excel, and you know how I can get a working copy of Guntracker, I can help you come up with a way for you to transfer your data from it to NM Collector Software.

Thanks!

I have never seen an option for exporting to Excel but will look again...wow I just saw that the maker of Guntracker is Bangzoom...my username...LOL...strange

well anyway its written in some obscure language and they dont support it anymore so if i can import/export i would be interested...a working copy? I see some places that say it can be downloaded but dont know if its a complete version....i got a disk in the mail yrs ago....i will find out the language and reply again


Edit...it was written with Cold Fusion

For those who win the free one year NRA Membership, I am offering two options.

1) You use my NRA Recruiter discount membership link that reads "Join NRA" on my web site (http://www.nmcollector.net/nmguncollector/) ( due to NRA rules, I cannot post the link directly to this forum, you must go through a page that the NRA has authorized me to post the link to ) and provide your personal information using their secure on-line membership form. With this option you will submit your information directly to the NRA and make your payment directly to the NRA. The NRA will process your membership and send me your name and zip so I can confirm that you signed up through my NRA Recruiter link. I will then refund your one year membership purchase price (PayPal, check, or money order - your preference). Remember, this is for one year only at my discount rate of $25.00 for one year using my NRA Recruiter link only.

2) You send me all of your personal information required for me to manually fill out and submit the NRA Membership application for you. I will send your paperwork along with payment and the NRA will send your membership directly to you.

That's it. Please do not hesitate to send me any questions.

Thanks,

I have someone who won the activation but was hoping to win the NRA membership. He was wondering if any of the NRA membership winners would be willing to trade their NRA membership for his lifetime activation.

If so, please let me know and I will work the trade.
