For the selection, one Entrant will be selected at random from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period and will become the "Potential Grand Prize Winner."

GRAND PRIZE CLAIMS:
Except where prohibited, the Potential Grand Prize Winner must sign and return to Sponsor, by the date indicated, an IRS Form W-9 in order to claim the Grand Prize.

Potential Grand Prize Winner must report income to the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"). In the event it is deemed during the verification process that Potential Grand Prize Winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the Grand Prize, Potential Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified and an alternate Potential Grand Prize Winner selected as outlined above. This process shall continue until a potential Grand Prize Winner is identified who is able to meet all eligibility and other conditions of the Sweepstakes, and that Entrant will be declared the "Grand Prize Winner" and awarded the Grand Prize. Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements.
*If, after the Grand Prize Winner is determined and declared and the Grand Prize is shipped by Sponsor to the Grand Prize Winner's federal firearms licensee of choice in his or her state of residence, the Grand Prize Winner is unwilling or unable to receive a transfer of the Grand Prize from his or her chosen federal firearms licensee (for failure to pass a required background check, legal prohibition of the transfer, or any other reason), Sponsor reserves right, in its own discretion, to either terminate the Sweepstakes at that point or select an Alternate Grand Prize Winner through the process described above.
