in exactly its second annual year, The Gundies — the firearm neighborhood’s “awards show” (P.S. vote for me!) — is definitely coming into its own. As of the day before today, December 28th, The Gundies hit 872,184 votes, and votes don’t shut except middle of the night on the 31st. I see a million votes of their future, and perhaps you (sure, you) can support.
What are The Gundie Awards, you ask? well . . .
Created via PR/advertising enterprise Forge family members, “The Gundies are the firearm group’s first and handiest group-voted awards spotlighting the right creators and upcoming ability within the neighborhood.” It’s a riff on The Dundie Awards, for enthusiasts of tv exhibit The workplace.
As basically every person else has, I’ve discovered The Gundies to be a beautiful technique to discover about new organizations and new content creators. by some means they’ve managed to put a highlight on truly splendid skill, both neatly-established and up-and-coming, in all 15 of their awards classes, and in many techniques it basically brings the business and the community together for some shared fun and cognizance.
Then once again, ultimate year the company I co-personal, Black Collar arms, turned into nominated for “Most inventive manufacturer” and this year i was nominated for “Influencer turned Entrepreneur,” so possibly their style is questionable in spite of everything.
every of the awards classes has a firearm trade sponsor, and that sponsor has provided up a superb prize to be given at random to 1 lucky voter in every of those categories. The more you vote, the more entries you have got for a given category’s prize.
Some prize examples consist of a custom Aero Precision AR15 with optic for vote casting within the “Most Influential feminine of the yr” class, an FK BRNO pistol for vote casting in “Breakout Creator of the yr,” a wilderness Eagle for “choicest Crossover Creator,” and so tons more. comprehensive list here. (expectantly you’ve got a pickup truck, because i do know y’all’re voting in my class if only for a chance to win the Diamondback HD Truck mattress cowl)
moreover, each and every vote enters the voter for the grand prize, a trip to DriveTanks in Uvalde, TX to join the excellent 4 nominees in each and every category and all of the sponsors for The Gundies latitude Day & Award Ceremony. There’s all styles of new and fabulous stuff to shoot on the latitude, some African safari animals to look, and an awards birthday party with open bar. Plus an open bar. And free booze!
Hats off to Forge relations for hatching such a terrific concept. It’s enjoyable, it’s useful at bringing the firearm business and community together, and it’s continuing to benefit huge traction. properly performed.
