This recreation of the flag raising on Iwo Jima earns user nathansdad a Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 .22LR Realtree APG HD Camo rifle. Congrats nathansdad! We’ll be contacting you shortly.

UPDATE (Sept. 16, 9:45 AM EST): Here is nathansdad’s caption for the photo:
_”We picked some American symbols and their weapons an shot the target accordingly. The cowboy with his .44 revolver, the law enforcement agent with his Smith and Wesson, the soldier and his AR 15, and the Native American with his Henry lever action. Each took one shot(we wanted to make sure there was enough of the target left to put on the pole) an we raised the flag as American as we could.”
