Default A Special Calguns 10th Anniversary Gift

As you may have seen in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Calguns.net we are giving away via drawing a S&W M&P15 Sport.

However there is a special giveaway that I feel needs to be done, this one will have no drawing and no one can enter to win.
I stewed about what to give and looked at what I could buy and nothing really seemed to fit until I thought 'Don't buy something, give something.'

And so I'd like to give the AR pattern rifle built from very first ever Calguns lower receiver, serial number SB23-0001 to Ramon, the man who started Calguns.net in 2002 and was generous enough in 2006 when personal matter meant he couldn't continue running it to pass it off to me. This is unfired and before taking this picture Chris and the crew at Addax Tactical were kind enough to give it a thorough going over and cleaning.





Thank you Ramon for starting this place and for handing it off and letting me run with it when life wouldn't allow you to.

I can think of very few places where so many people have come together to achieve a common goal, help each other out and help our sport become bigger and better. This place has been a wealth of knowledge and an asset to my daily routine. I've met many fellow local shooters that I may have never known had it not been for Calguns, many friends that I wouldn't have if it wasn't for you guys. So thank you to Ramon for planting the seed, thank you Kestryll for allowing that seed to grow and grow, and thank you to the staff for pruning and maintaining the plant enormous friggin' bush that Calguns has grown into on the last 10 years.
