I was told it was OK to post this to the "appropriate forum." I think this is the appropriate forum but please let me know if it is not and/or adjust as needed!
I usually do not do promotions but people seem to like them so here's what I have to offer in this "223 Giveaway
" for those who are interested ...
NM Collector Software
- 2 ea. ($35.00 value each) – NRA One Year Memberships (New membership or renewal)
- 2 ea. ($49.95 value each) – NM Collector Software Lifetime Activation on Custom USB Flash Drive ( I will also cover the USPS priority shipping – a $6.00 value)

- Plus a kicker – the first 100 people who respond to the offer on this forum will be eligible for a free (after a rebate) copy of NM Gun Collecting Software for the Android. Due to the Google App distribution setup, a purchase will be required but I will refund the purchase price. I would appreciate a 5 star review on Google Play in exchange if the winners think the software deserves it.
Keep track of every aspect of your collection with this database program. Create detailed files on individual items with custom fields for any type of collection. For example, you can track model, serial number, purchase date, purchase price, sale price, and appraised value—even lets you attach photos to each entry. Searchable database has a statistics feature that lets you track both the appraised and realized value of individual items, or your entire collection. Print hard copy reports (including ATF compliant firearms A&D) and personalized tags, even customize the screen appearance, modify or add field headings, and add your own drop-down values. This is the same software sold by Brownells
and the Gun Digest Store
NM Collector Software is a desktop application written in Java using an embedded Derby database. The database can be encrypted or not depending on your needs and preferences. NM Collector is designed to be run on any computer that has Java 6 (or greater) installed. Java 6 is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is a very stable platform that has been around for many years with no foreseeable end to its availability on these platforms.

NM Gun Collecting Software for the Android
Use this simple no-nonsense collecting software for Android devices to capture key information (including pictures, identification, receipt and disposition) for your gun collection. Can be used stand-alone or in conjunction with the desktop version of NM Collector Software. The intent of this Android application is to work in conjunction with the Desktop version of NM Collector Software which makes it easy to input data. That data can then be easily transferred to your mobile device to take with you and make minor adjustments (like easily adding pictures) as necessary on the go and then uploading the changes back to the desktop. Although the mobile apps allow you to enter data from scratch, they are not meant to be the primary means of data entry.
Everybody who responds to this post will be eligible to win. Drawings will be held on or about the weekend of September 1.

However, since this promotion must be subject to audit the winning userIds will be given to official Calguns representatives if requested.
