If I win Echo1's Team BLACKSHEEP ER-16 Photo Contest, I will raffle off the Echo1 USA ER-16 AEG to one of the people who has liked my photo on the official contest page.  If I win, I will then announce the winner of the prize that I just won either here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog and/or on the new Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook Page.  I'm sure some of you might want to know what the point is of me winning the contest if I'm just going to give the prize away as soon as I win it.  Simple.  Bragging rights.  AEGs will come and go.  But bragging rights will live forever.  Like the time I ate three (yes, THREE) Chipotle burritos in under 45 minutes.  There were many witnesses. 

Liking my photo anywhere else other than on Team BLACKSHEEP's official gallery will NOT count towards your entry.   

Just (1) follow the link (either the picture above, or the link below) to the official picture entry on Echo1's Team BLACKSHEEP page, (2) hit the like button, then (3) leave.

Don't even look at the other photos.  To be completely honest, while mine may not be that great either, some of the other entries are pretty bad. 

This plan won't work if you like my photo, but then you go through the rest of the galley and like everyone else's.

Can't we be monogamous just this once?


Speaking of epic beards, have you heard the news about Costa leaving Magpul?

Wow.  According to the Military Times blog, Gear Scout, Chris Costa is leaving Magpul Dynamics, effective as of year-end 2011/early 2012-ish.  In case you're just tuning into the world, Magpul Dynamics is the tactical training powerhouse in which Costa played a key role developing a cult-like following in both the real steel and Airsoft realms due, in part, to a series of instructional training DVDs filmed during their live-fire shooting courses.  Perhaps most notably, "The Art of the Tactical Carbine" Parts I & II, which feature The Beard along with former-Magpul Dynamics CEO, Travis Haley, instructing students on the most effective ways to dispatch a threat using very expensive tricked-out M4 carbine rifles.

Apparently, Costa and his beard plan to start their own training school, Costa Ludus, which should allow him a bit more flexibility in his tactical enlightenment schedule to spend more time with his family.  Also according the Gear Scout report, Costa appears to be leaving on good terms with Magpul, which is always something I hope for.  I'm not a fan of drama. 

As a little "knowledge treat" for you, the term "Ludus," according to the all-knowing Wikipedia, stems from Ancient Rome, with several meanings.  One of which refers to a training school for gladiators and the other?  Erotic role-playing.  I couldn't make that up if I tried.  My guess is Costa was going for the former meaning, rather than the latter.  However, I know that he can be quite the character at times, so perhaps I might be wrong. Either way, I think I can speak for many of the Magpul maniacs out there when I say that we wish him well on his new endeavors. 


Special thanks to Stickman for the use of his badass imagery.  Check out more of his handywork with a Canon DSLR on Facebook.  When you're done oggling his guns & gear galleries, check out our new Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook Page and feel free to say nice things to us or about us to your friends.
