03-11-2013, 09:21 PM

Ah, OK thanks:)

Very cool prize by the way, this site continues to impress.

03-12-2013, 05:35 AM
Very nice prize.

03-13-2013, 07:06 AM
Nice contest but for many it will probably be impossible to get ahold of a copy of Calibre issue #2 in time. The only place that carries it near me is almost 2 hours drive away. And when I was in there last the store employee who "helped" me said "we dont' carry magazines...never heard of Calibre". I spoke to the publisher about this on CGN and he said he has a Fedex shipping receipt saying the magazine was delivered to them (Better Buy Sports in Dartmouth). They are likely going to offer subscriptions in the future, but again it will be too late for this contest. Nutz! :)

03-13-2013, 04:55 PM
Aw man I'd love an vltor upper. Now how to get a hold of the magazine...

03-13-2013, 05:13 PM
Guys if your not sure where or how to get a copy I suggest you PM Calibre or check their facebook page, to get a copy for the answer.

03-13-2013, 07:43 PM
Sweet, found a local retailer for the magazine, going to head out to pick one up tomorrow! Happy to see a Canadian magazine dedicated to guns.

03-13-2013, 07:53 PM
Hmm is it on their Facebook page as well?

03-13-2013, 07:54 PM
No, its only in the magazine

03-14-2013, 01:20 AM
Neat contest.

Does it matter how the two words are combined? IE; should the RDSC password be first followed by the Caliber, or Caliber password followed by RDSC or does it matter at all as long as you have both halfs?

03-14-2013, 06:14 AM

We've gotten copies out to the Vancouver retailers simply because we have to rent a two ton cube van to pick the shipment up from our printer in Burnaby, and that makes it very convenient to then simply drive around a drop copies off at the local retailers and Canada Ammo, as they take a couple thousand copies and that's a volume that's tough to fit in my own vehicle. Then, we sent out copies to advertisers with invoices, and are now sending out the smaller volumes to corporate types; think Nikon Canada, Korth Group, marketing and advertising agencies... after all, we need more of those folks to jump on board if there's going to be more issues! Tomorrow, we'll be on the phone to our retail distributors across the country to ensure that they are still up for receiving and distributing copies, after which we'll be putting the Fedex boxes to those folks in the mail, and updating the distribution map to reflect any changes.

Also, we'll be posting details on our distribution later tonight for those of you that have any additional questions on how to get it, both for free at retailers or via subscription!

So, if you can't find a copy yet, don't panic... we will be doing out best to give everyone ample opportunity to get a copy before the contest closes!

Check back here in the Calibre forum or on Calibre's Facebook page later tonight for further details.

03-19-2013, 10:09 AM
I had a great set of email's with Dan, and I was fixed up asap with a subscription. Awesome, no the wait. Oh well Rome wasn't built in a day.

03-19-2013, 10:20 AM
Ditto. I'm looking forward to my copies.

03-27-2013, 07:20 AM

Wow! An upper!

;)Now that I've held this thing in my hand, my first build idea of buying the cheapest Norc I can find and putting this upper on it:cool1: is going to have to be re-thought a bit:).
