I hope everyone has been signing up for the Duel 3 as much as humanly possible – that would be once an hour. I hope at least some of our readers have won some awesome swag from Springfield Armory and the other contributing sponsors of this years Duel 3.

Today is the last day to win and it includes the Grand Prize. Not only will you get an expense paid trip to the Springfield Armory factory and a custom built 1911, but you’ll be able to hang out and go shooting with pistol god, Rob Leatham. With more championship titles than our average readers age, the winner might be able to learn a thing or two from this guy. I know I’ve always wanted to take one of his classes and I hope some day I’ll get a chance to shoot next to a legend. Why not win it?

From Springfield Armory:

Best of luck to all of our readers and thanks for your patronage.
