Once again, we asked readers to shoot a target from our July issue and incorporate it into a creative photo for the chance to win a brand-new rifle. James C. McCracken of Richmond, Va., (username: jmac543) took top prize in our third annual contest with this photo, which he calls “Second Amendment Thoughts.”

Each time he picks up his gun to go hunting with his sons, Jack and Christopher, McCracken explains, he is reminded of what our American forefathers went through to feed and protect their families. McCracken’s friend, Gram, played the part of James Madison, the author of the U.S. Bill of Rights and the “Father of the Constitution.”

McCracken won the contest prize: a new Smith & Wesson M&P15 Performance Center Rifle. Congratulations, James, and good shooting!
