Browning Customer Buys a Knife and Wins Buck Mark Pistol.
Release Date: 12/8/2010
Dick's Sporting Goods Adds Some Christmas Cheer.
One of Browning's best dealers -- Dick's Sporting Goods -- has given a boost to the holiday season with a fun contest completed recently. When you purchase a Browning 111 knife you were able to enter in a special drawing for a Browning Buck Mark pistol.
It is always fun to hear about the winners of contests, but in this case the results were particularly heart warming. In this letter, the winner of the Buck Mark pistol -- Mr. Bob Short -- tells us about his experience (used with permission).
"I would like to thank all persons involved in my winning the Browning pistol .It is a welcome addition to my guns that I do have ,since being involved in the major flood of June 2008 in Iowa, in which I lost a good amount of my hunting accessories, and having a theft of my hunting accessories, which included all of my knives,including some I inherited from my father & grandfather in January 2009.
"It is a pleasant feeling knowing that it does matter if you send in the entry forms that are included in a purchase that is made -- in this case the entry being for the pistol from the purchase of the Browning hunting knife. I have since purchased another knife."
The Model 111 knife Mr. Short won is one of the Browning knives designed by master knife designer Russ Kommer. These new Browning 111 lockbacks improve upon a popular folding design. The grooved handles are constructed from rugged G-10 or walnut and contoured for a comfortable grip. The bolsters add to the beauty and balance. Modern materials and design ensure the Model 111 knives are one up on the competition.
In this video below, Russ Kommer describes all the unique features and advantages of the Model 111.
