The winners are solely responsible for all matters relating to their Prize after it is awarded. If a prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to a potential winner, if a potential winner cannot be reached on the first notification attempt, if a potential winner fails to return Winner Documents within the specified time period, or if a potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, then such person may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected, at Administrator's sole discretion.

All firearms transfers must be in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations and will be subject to the requirements, policies and procedures of the chosen Federal Firearms Licensee for delivery. If a winner is unable to complete the firearm transfer because the firearm is not legally available for transfer or sale in his or her state or locale, the winner may select a substitute firearm that is of equal or lesser value. Substitute Prizes are subject to availability and the Sponsor makes no claims or representations that any particular substitute selected by the winners will be available. Any substitute Prize must be legally available for sale in a winner's state or locale. If a winner is unable to complete the firearm transfer due to a failure of the required background check or other failure to meet the requirements of the Federal Firearms Licensee, the Prize in question will be forfeited and returned to Sponsor at Sponsor's sole expense and the winner in question will be disqualified. In the event of noncompliance with these requirements, the Prize may be forfeited.

Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void entries of any Entrant who is or may be ineligible to purchase a firearm in his or her state or locale.
All Prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined in Sponsor's sole discretion. All federal, state and local taxes, as well as any expenses not specified in these Official Rules as being provided as part of the Prize, are the sole responsibility of the winners. Sponsor will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen Prize. The Sponsor is not responsible for any inability of a winner to accept or use any Prize (or portion thereof) for any reason. No transfers, Prize substitutions (other than substitutions as specifically set forth hereinabove) or cash redemptions will be made, except in Sponsor's sole discretion.
