Mr. C. Joins GunUp.com Pro Staff

 Generally speaking, I don't usually drop entire press releases into the blog as a post, but in this case I am making an exception. It's pretty rare (unheard of?) that I get to be the subject of a press release, so this one is kinda special! 

The partying, celebrating, and carrying on will be well underway this evening, even until maybe 8:30 or 9pm., when It's my bed time.......



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GUNUP.com announces the launch of their ‘Pro Staff” program and “My GunLocker”

SEATTLE, WA (December 14, 2010) GunUp.com, the authoritative community for gun enthusiasts to share, discuss, review and compare guns, is excited to announce the launch of their GunUp Pro Staff program and the release “My GunLocker.”

"My GunLocker" allows enthusiasts to favorite guns they like and share their collection with their friends. The total worth of the guns they favorite will also be calculated using our real time gun pricing tool, GUestimate, to give our users a sense of what their collection is worth. “We feel that this is a huge benefit to our users and we are pleased to provide them this great tool to solve a problem so many gun owners face,” says Dan Hall, CEO of GunUp.com. 

GunUp is also announcing the launch of their GunUp Pro Staff through their sponsorship of Steel Challenge shooter, Mike Gallion (bio).

“Besides promoting GunUp at competitive Shooting events, our Pro Staff will also be contributing to the GunUp.com Question and Answer section on our website which will launch on December 20th,” says Dan Hall, CEO of GunUp.com. ”One of our goals at GunUp is to support the growth of shooting sports, our Pro Staff program allows us to do just that while providing new shooters access to community and industry recognized experts. Every week our Pro Staff members will answer selected questions from our users on competitive shooting and the industry as a whole.”

Mike Galllion is a perennial World and European Steel Challenge Champion in his division, a veteran blogger (author of the Mr. Completely Gun Blog), and organizer of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous.

"When I heard about Gunup.com, I knew it was going to be something special, they're a great bunch of folks, and Gunup is definitely going to provide a lot of fun and useful things for shooters of all skill levels, from those just getting started through the experienced veterans.” Mike Gallion adds, “I am proud to be chosen to represent Gunup.com as a competitive shooter!"
“We are excited to announce Mike as the first member of the GunUp ‘Pro Staff’”, says Dan Hall, CEO of GunUp.com. “Not only is Mike a terrific competitor and all around great guy, he also embodies many of the values that are important to our organization. He has a great enthusiasm for the sport and is consistently seeking opportunities to teach new shooters and invite them to competitive shooting events. Mike also has given a lot of his own time, energy, and money to the online gun community as the organizer of the annual Gun Blogger Rendezvous. We felt he was a natural fit to launch our Pro-Staff.”

Welcome aboard.

If I had my choice, I would much rather have seen Jessie Abbate make the cut for GunUp pro staff.... she would have made a much better addition to the up coming GunUp calender!

:D

Yay Mr. Completely!
I've joined GunUp and they asked me about this "Twitter" thing, and "Facebook"?? Huh?
Anyhow it seems pretty cool, only a lot of my old guy stuff doesn't fit in their gun-locker - like no M1 Garand? Ok I get that, it's before any of these kids was born - but a Sig P220 with white grips? Call my Pimp!
