Preppers and guns, its like peanut butter and chocolate, pancakes and syrup, Run DMC and Aerosmith. Something like that. What I am trying to say is, FREE GUNS! It's prepper Christmas.
Usually we post unadvertised discounts and tips for saving big money on prepping on our discount page, but this giveaway is getting a post.
Only in AmericaAn online news outlet is giving 9mm handguns away, one a week for 25 weeks. The catch is that you need to submit an entry once a week. Pretty slick marketing though, they add tons of new email subscribers, and get many to return every week. They may even convince some people to become regular readers. Only in America! The publication is called The Daily Caller, which is a Libertarian/Conservative leaning news and opinion site run by Tucker Carlson (former show host on CNN, MSNBC, & commentator on Fox News). Registering for the giveaway does not require an account, or that you even read the site. Name, email, zip code are about all you have to give them to enter. Here is their description of the giveaway:

California. Each gun is engraved with the Bill of Rights and comes in one of three colors.
I have never fired an FMK9C1 9mm before so I can't speak to how it performs, but reviews seem good and it is a 9mm which many preppers favor for the low cost and availability of the ammo. The gun is worth about $375. Not bad.
Disclosure: I don't have any relationship with the site giving away the guns, don't read the site frequently, and therefore do not have an opinion on the site's content. I do, however, now have a favorable opinion of them since hearing about this promotion, its brilliant.
