We are selling 50 of the latest Union Sportsmen’s Alliance wall calendars – and each purchase enters you in a contest to win a firearm from manufacturers like Remington, Bushmaster, Kel Tec and more.
Calendars are $40 each and can be purchased at the Local Union Hall. Once you purchase your calendar, register for the gun contest at www.unionsportsmen.org/calendar/usa. USA will give away two guns to Union members each week, and you must be able to pass a background check to be eligible to win.
