When I came on tonight I had to log on. When I did a pop up came up and said I was the lucky campfire member and I would get a free gift. I've been burned before so I'm not a sucker for scams. Well I decided to play along. So I clicked on it and it took me to a page that had four or five nice gifts. One was a VISA Gift Card. But I noticed it said Sold out. Then I clicked on the head lamp. It took me to that and then it said to click on something else so I did and it immediately took me to a pic of another one of the gifts. Well that's when I smelled a rat. I backed out of there and went back to the original gift I had selectted and clicked on the privacy and rules. Then I read down that page and it said, after 15 days thet would take the full price off my credit card which was fifty five dollars> instead of just the price of shipping and handling. What a scam!

You have to buy the Gold Membership to qualify for the headlamp. Just a heads-up.

I wonder if you have a pop up blocker already in your computer, you have not turned on? Click on the little gear icon.

This. You have to pay to play. The site is much better after I got the Gold Membership.

Would appreciate a screenshot, but a lot of that stuff comes in via wifi networks. I was just on a long trip out of the country, and boy did I get some funny stuff on hotel wifi. Soon as I went back to cellular, zip.

Just clean out your cookies when that happens, as oftentimes your browser will store it.

I paid for the gold membership just to get into the gun raffle. Lots of good ones listed.





This site is the worst of any I visit and I'm plumb full of ABP, antivirus and misc. other safety nets. I hope you're making bank Rick.

Jeez, the only free gift available when I joined was the Butt-Out tool. Glad to see other vendors stepping up with giftcards and headlamps and such. Strike while the iron is hot.....

Gold, yah right. Fuggin cheap-ass headlamp only worked for 3 minutes! And the butt-out tool. I am sure it wasn't authentic. Where do I send the cash for Platinum Membership?

I got the Limited Platinum Membership: Mule Deer is loading 500 rounds of ammo for me with my choice of components!
