    Wow, your first post in over a year and you want us all to vote for you - a bit presumptuous I'd say. Now if you intend to donate your prize(s) to this forum - that's a different story...EMWD

    Nice photo, but you need to correct your white balance a little. Good luck!

    Wouldn't you feel better if you won based on the merits of your photo and not because the ballot box was stuffed.

    I would indeed, but this contest is more about marketing for South West Fire Arms. The finalists are chosen by the owner and employees of SWFA, and the voting is done by all the folks that the finalists can bring to the site. It is all about getting new eyes on the SWFA web site... Who knows, maybe a few of those new eyes will wind up purchasing a product from SWFA.

    This is the latest E-mail from Chris Farris, the owner of SWFA, which shows how the finalist should "get out the vote":

    Thanks for your support!

    I notice you didn't quote anything from my post - I'm heartbroken...EMWD

    This is roughly the same as SPAM to me as they want you folks to flood the web with links to their site. As such I have reported this as SPAM...

    I apologize for somehow getting under your skin NGIB. That certainly was not my intent.

    OK Greg: I did like your picture better then the one in front of the patrol car. No new eyes though as I am on their customer list.

    I just joined this forum, and I had no idea that members could be so testy. Take a breather folks.

    I like your picture sir. You have my vote.

    the reason peeps get cranky about it is those kinds of things are designed to get people like the OP to go to many places and spam for hits for their website. it happens a lot and it does get old.
