    He actually missed it by one hour and 4 minutes. His post was at 1:04 am.

    True, for me it was the 3rd.

    We must keep in mind Ted is from Germany. He probably didn't think about EST vs PST.

    I would think it makes the most sense to simply say that it had to be before midnight on the 3rd, in whatever timezone you were posting from.

    I'm sure Ted thought about time zones, but figured he would spare everyone the math and simply say get your guess in before midnight wherever you are posting from.

    I hate to jump in here again but where he was when he made his post it was made on the 4th. It shouldn't matter what time it was somewhere else. When he made his guess it was after the deadline.
    I missed that when I offered congratulations.
    All I can say to Augustine is no good deed goes unpunished. LOL

    The guy is giving away an unobtanium gun. I wouldn't jump down his throat just because 2 people can't follow the posted rules.

    Show me a P8A1 for sale anywhere in the US, much less being given away for free.


    The first number was posted by a non-premium member, so I can see why that is out, clear rule violation.

    The second number was posted too late. If you take Ted's timezone in Germany, then Mountain Time is -7:00. That means the post was made at 12:04 on the 4th in Montana. According to the rules, that is too late.

    What to do now? Take a Mulligan?

    I am going to let the sponsor of the contest rule on this one, but again, it was July 3rd 11:04 PM when I posted my guess. I was happy to see the thread, and entered in accordance with the rules. I am a premium member, entered once, before july 4th.

    I always was bad at math. You are right. At the moment Montana is -8:00 from Germany. You posted at 11:04.

    That seems pretty clear to me.

    it was July 3rd 11:04 PM when I posted my guess.
    On page 11 when You posted Your guess it shows 12:04 Am on July 4th. It would be 8 hours later in Berlin making it 8:04 AM. Either way after the deadline.
    If he says Your the winner You are the winner but I would like to see correct winner get the gun. Nothing against You personally. I don't even know You.

    Its 2:02 in MT right now. What does this post show as a time stamp to you? Not being snarky, I just think you are seeing times based on your timezone.
