BOTW: Second Set Results

    There was a little confusion last week since we rolled the results in with the new BOTW. We listened and split the posts.

    Drumroll…..And the winner for the second set was Rick’s Rifle Dynamics AK Build with 157 votes (Steve’s Mk 24 Combat Assault Pistol-style Clone was a close second with 132). The randomly picked winning voter was Josh Z (it is a conspiracy??? Last week was a “J” name as well).

    Rick will receive a gift card to Brownells (and be entered in the BOTY) and Josh will get a small amount of swag.  It pays to play… 😉

    Keep the submissions coming in!

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and runs an on-demand medical staffing business. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
