I'm giving away a pair of my own, custom coated pair of Oakleys. Want 'em? Answer 8 questions and you might get your wish.

Remember last year's SHOT Show issue of RECOIL, Number 23?


Amongst all that badass kit they're wearing are two pair of Oakley M Frame Alphas, customized for RECOIL, by hand, for the cover. Only a handful were made. This pair is mine, and they're still brand new.

Here's the deal. These are my personal glasses. I'll randomly select one person from a list of those who correctly e-mail me the correct answers. I'm not going to video it or seek out a third party witness, I'm just going to have a niece or nephew pull a name out of a hat — unless there are thousands of entries, in which case they'll pick a number. The Scavenger Hunt runs 10/24/16 – 10/31/16.

Here's how to win.
