The 5th annual Gunblogger Rendezvous has come to a close and Traction Control would like to extend a special thanks to organizers Mr. Completely and KeeWee, and to everyone who was able to attend.

Another special thanks is due to the great companies who helped to sponsor GBR V.  According to notes (and links) compiled by Derek at The Packing Rat they were:

Para USA donated a 35% coupon off of a new Para PXT pistol.
Springfield Armory for lots of swag.
– Lori Petoske of Strum, Ruger & Co., Inc. brought with her laptop type bags, hats, mugs and other swag.
– Colin B. Anthony of Midway USA donated pistol range bags for every blogger, t-shirts and other swag.Midway.  Mr. Anthony will also provide bloggers special discount codes for their respective blogs!
Hi-Point Firearms donated a 9mm carbine
Front Sight donated a four day training voucher
Leupold – the makers of (IMHO) the world’s finest scopes donated a Leupold VX3 scope – delivered by Allen Forkner of Swanson • Russell
Crimson Trace donated a pistol case, range bag, swag and a voucher for a laser grip
GLOCK donated a voucher for a standard model GLOCK
– Jeff Bader, on behalf of Solider’s Angels, donated three copies of Solider’s Angels: “May No Soldier Go Unloved”
– David Whitewolf of Random Nuclear Strikes donates two signed copies of Stephen Halbrook’s books.
– Caleb Giddings of Gun Nuts Media provided a signed NRA hat
– Larry Weeks, on behalf of Brownell’s donated many prizes.  Most notable was a Signature Series Deluxe Range Bag and Brownell’s modern sporting rifle magazines.
– Kevin Baker of The Smallest Minority donated LaRue Tactical 30mm scope rings
National Rifle Association provided breakfast for all bloggers
– Dan Hall of (coming soon) donated shirts

Of course, there’s the Silver Legacy for providing the hospitality room and a projector!

If there is anyone I’ve missed, let me know.

The Gunblogger Rendezvous is a terrific event where bloggers – and readers! can get together and share some good times, compare notes, and shoot stuff!

Make a note – probably in September 2011, in your calendar to attend next year’s GBR.
