Starting on April 4, 2015 through May 4, 2015 we will be accepting submissions from you—our customer—to be a blogger for a day. All you have to do is review a gun, ammunition, or any other product that we sell! In June, the Shooter’s Log will post one article a week from four winners. Your article will run on the Shooter’s Log and in Cheaper Than Dirt!’s weekly newsletter, The Chronicle. And the best part? Not only will you see your name in print, you will receive a $100 Cheaper Than Dirt Gift! gift card.

60,000 people a day visit the Shooter’s Log and will be eager to read what you have to say.

  1. Thank you all for your comments.
    The date was wrong on the email you received. The deadline to enter is May 4, 2015.
    I am sorry for any confusion or inconvenience that this caused.

  2. I would love to do a review, and send it in, However, I JUST got the email about the contest yesterday, Being this email announcing the contest was either late going out, or miss written another announcement with the right dates would be in order.

  3. I wonder how many potential submitters you lost by mentioning a March deadline in the email that only went out finally on April 3d … not cool to ask us for stuff then tell us it is already too late to send it in, indicating somebody wasn’t watching the calendar, or proofreading the outgoing mail at your offices.
