Free Ammo Giveaway From Lucky Gunner

The following is a guest post from the crew over at ~ M.D. has been a long-time advertiser here on  As a result, we recently reached out to M.D. with an idea to do a TSB-specific contest related to ammunition and preparedness.  

He’s a nice guy and agreed, because he wants his readers to have a chance at getting some free ammo – as long as we put together the details of the contest since he’s busy with The Survivalist Blog, a new column for New Survivalist Magazine (scheduled to hit newsstands in June) his book “Dirt Cheap Survival Retreat” (to be released next month) and his massively popular Survival CD. So without further delay, here’s the deal on the contest and how you’ve got 3 chances to win some free ammo from us here at


TSB Ammo Giveaway Contest Prizes:

  • 1st Prize – $200 gift card, good for anything on
  • 2nd Prize – $75 gift card, good for anything on
  • 3rd Prize – $25 gift card, good for anything on

To Enter (3 Easy Steps):

  1. Make a post about how a particular product from will help you prepare on *your* blog or website (note that blog comments do not count – it has to be an actual post).
  2. Link back to the product(s) on that you are talking about.
  3. Email the URL of your entry to [email protected] to enter.

We’ll randomly draw three winners from all qualifying entries on Wednesday, March 9th.  To qualify, all you have to do is follow the 3 steps above and just pick a product on our site, write about it on your site and why you need it when it comes to being prepared, link to that particular product (or products) at and email your entry URL to [email protected].

  4. Anything else related to being better prepared & the products we carry on

You can write about whatever interests you as long as you link to the related product(s) you’re discussing on Again, this has to be done on your own blog or website and blog comments don’t count.

The winner will be randomly drawn on Wednesday, March 9th from all qualifying entries.  A blog post here on will announce all three winners and will follow-up with each winner individually via email to get them their individual gift cards immediately thereafter.

Since ammunition and reloading supplies can be key parts to many people’s survival preparations, we’re excited about actively supporting the community M.D. has built and engaging the many knowledgeable readers he has attracted.  Thanks to M.D. for his willingness to help us on this and we’re looking forward to seeing the entries!

(M.D. adds : a link back to The Survivalist Blog when you mention the contest on your blog would be greatly appreciated but not required.)

  1. Bummer that you have to have a website to enter :”(

  2. Excellant contest idea. It would add to reloading ability of reloaders to have fresh stock on hand to defray the cost of brass purchase. I have reloaded up all my spare 9mm and wish that my purchasing power allowed me to aquire more alredy made ammo. Don’t get me wrong reloaded ammo serves a unique purpose. One its contained and neat and stores well. I must have 6-7 types of ammo boxes of varying colors and sizes. Not that it’s confusing cause all boxes are marked but 5000 rounds in a neat brown case is so a work art and beauty. Hehehehe.

  3. Count me among those who chose not to enter, also. Nothing personal, but I didn’t want to blog about this. I would love and could use a $75 or $200 prize, but the topic didn’t fit the scope of what I have included in my blog so far. I can see this from both sides, but a purely “open” contest would have had more entries, I think.

  4. I’m in agreement with the other folks, having to have a website and blog about this is a killer. You have a lot of readers and I think these results should give your sponsors an idea of what they aren’t willing to do just for a chance at free stuff.

  5. Laughing says:

    I love how people complain about free stuff and giveaway rules. People either get a life, or man up and enter… I’d rather not hear your whining and I’m sure I’m not alone on this one.


    and I sent the link to lucky gunner.

    Just getting started with this and sometimes I think it is more work that it is worth. But if you don’t keep at it, it will never get better.

  7. @Laughing: We’re not whining just stating the obvious. If the sponsors want to actually get some good publicity for their effort then they shouldn’t be so picky about who can enter. The more folks that enter and have a chance to win the more people that are likely to do business with them in the future.

    While requiring a link on a page may help up the page ranking it doesn’t help them sell any more product (in this case ammo) to the people looking at this page. It’s clear this giveaway was a fail just for that reason. If you are really wanting to giveaway something then give it away with no strings attached and you will get more hits than this.

    The reason I started using LuckyGunner for ammo purchases in the first place was because of their reputation and another contest that was done where they didn’t require a link or anything else.

    Next time you choose to whine about whiners maybe you should consider if what they are saying is true and constructive rather than just making an anonymous whiny comment about it.

  8. Bill Hoffman says:

    sign me up for free ammo –if there are no gimmicks or scams

  9. @Laughing: I love how people will comment anonymously without leaving a link or e-mail address when they want to say something disparaging about another commentor. Either get a life, or man up and link to something you’ve put online… I’d rather not hear your whining (about my explanation of why this contest only got 2 entries by the deadline) and I’m sure I’m not alone on this one.
