Default Won a Rifle!!

For the past couple of years I have been purchasing 1 or 2 of the Texas Ducks Unlimited gun giveaway calendars. Well Tuesday I finally won one!! Ruger American Ranch rifle chambered in 5.56. It has a threaded barrel, so I guess I need to buy a suppressor now. Should be arriving in a couple weeks.

Nice! My dad won a Smith and Wesson pistol last year, surprisingly smooth transaction.

Sweet. I got to find out what it feels like to win a gun raffle back in April. Pretty fun feeling!

Good rifle. I just bought one in 300 blk, and I already had a Ruger Predator that will shoot 1/4" groups at 100 yds.
Congratulations.

Those are awesome little rifles. I suggest you look into a KGM suppressor.

Congrats.

I won a Ruger American 6.5 Creedmoor with a Vortex Scope on Wednesday night at a conference. I am going to flip it and buy a new pistol.

Thank you. The Texas Ducks Unlimited chapter puts out a calendar every year that gives away a gun everyday. Monday, Wednesday and Friday they give away 2. On July 4th and Christmas they give away an ATV. Calendars go on sale around July or August for the next year, so the new calendars should be going on sale in a few months.

I have that same exact rifle. Very fun to shoot and would make a great truck gun.
