Skip lunch and throw that in the pot!

Does anyone get the feeling our vendors and LGS aren't aware of this?
I just email one of my LGS (vendor here) and I think they're probably so busy etc many have not seen our awesome thread here.

What say you "harass our vendors till they capitulate"?

Added a new DVD 6-pack reward. Pledge (or increase) $100 and receive six DVDs of the film. That's one DVD for you and five copies that you can share with your constitutionally ignorant friends.

We also added more slots to the $500 and $1,000 rewards.

Thanks,

Kris

That being said I sent an email blast to basically vendors here A - E. So if anyone wants to continue from the letter F?

I emailed:

Just curious:

Is the deadline a "hard stop"? Why can't we keep it going until the goal is reached?

If the Kickstarter expires without reaching the goal, no one is charged. Of course, we could still contribute by other means … but commitments may waiver.

he raised thousands of dollars at first, had to refund that first surge because of paypal policies (they were going to tie up all the funds) and weeks later I don't think the donations ever matched the initial surge.

I doubled my previous pledge again to $200.

All we've ever asked for is fair and balanced exposition of the issue, and we have our opportunity with this documentary. As of now, it looks like there is little over 13k left to raise to meet the Kickstarter goal. There are around 3,000 currently logged in to Calguns. That's roughly $4/person if every one of those contributed. $4! That's less than what an movie download would cost if you relied on everyone else to contribute and just waited until it came out on iTunes or whatever.

This is a movie that must be made!

Wow! What a great couple of days.... I've pledged to over 20 kickstarters, and I've *never* seen a last minute surge like this!

Anybody who has been sitting on the fence needs to donate *right now* *now* and they will go over the top.

if we can get most backers to up their pledge by 25% then that should clinch it. I will be willing to go up another $4K to $5K if it will close the deal.

if you donated $10, make it $12.50
if you donated $25, make it $31.25
if you donated $50, make it $62.50

Come on all you entrepreneur's out there who have had a great year - stand up. despite the economy, I know you exist.

My wife and I just had a baby this week and I don't want to see him grow up in a country with a nullified 2A. Do you? Lets do this.

I'm floored that there are only 100's of contributors! There should be 1000's if not 10's of thousands!! Every single Calguns member (except the "anti-trolls") should be donating!! I just read about this, wish I knew earlier. I've blasted my FB and emailed everyone I can think of, is the problem a lack of publicity for this? There are way too many gun owners to only have 100's of donations... frustrating!

Congrats on the baby. I just had my first one month ago. You've inspired me to go from $50 to $75. I don't want my son to grow up in a country with a nullified 2A either.

May I just say: CALGUNNERS FREAKIN ROCK!

It may be obvious, but contributors are not bound to the increments laid out on the rewards table. You can contribute any dollar amount amount you wish.

This has turned in to a real nail biter.

LET'S ROLL!!!!!!!

OK people, doubled my pledge to $200, and kicked it up over the $54,000 mark.

Yup, that was me!

What are you going to do?

If we got JUST ONE $10,000 pledge, this will become reality! (Heck, even 1 $5,000 pledge will do it for us!)

Cmon folks, surely one of y'all has a rich buddy out there that cares about gun rights!
