Christmas give-away: a TruGlo red-dot sight


I was recently presented with several older-model TruGlo red dot sights, very similar to the Traditional model shown below.  They're magnified 2x, with a 2.5 MOA reticle.




I've installed most of them on the rifles of disabled and handicapped students, who are enjoying them very much.  However, I have one left with no-one needing it.  It's unlikely to find a home before Miss D. and I move to another state next month, because I've drastically cut back on my training activities.  Therefore, with the permission of the donor, I'm going to offer it as a Christmas give-away to my readers.

All you need to do is either leave a comment on this post, or send me an e-mail (my address is in this blog's profile) asking me to enter you in the drawing.  US residents only, please, to avoid ITAR complications in sending a red dot sight outside the country.  Make sure you provide a working e-mail address, so that I can contact you if you win.  (If you leave a public comment here, I suggest you disguise the e-mail address from spambots by spelling it out, or something like that.)  I'll accept entries up until noon on Christmas day, and draw the winner's name during that afternoon.  I'll announce it on this blog on Christmas evening, and mail the red dot sight to the winner next week.  (If you wish to remain anonymous, and not be named if you win, please mention that in your entry.)

Good luck to one and all!

Peter
