Got lucky Saturday night
#1
I know what you're thinking but NO, not that kind of lucky [Image: icon_biggrin.gif] (was going to say maybe better than that to but decided not to go there - in case the wife reads this [Image: icon_redface.gif] )

I'm a member of FOAC.  Great organization as you know the work we do to fight the Antis and has actually done more here in PA against the gun grabbers than the NRA has in recent years. That said, I do also support the Friends of NRA (as many on the forum do also) and they do a great job helping fund the shooting sports throughout PA (my local banquet in this coming Sat and I'll be there).

However, back to the post. FOAC holds a gun bash twice a year to raise money for our political fights. We sell 1000 main entry tickets at $50 per and then open the doors for other people to come in and enjoy the great food/beer/soft drinks and the side raffles (costs $25 to get in). The Grand prize this time was a SCAR 16S, runner up was a Tavor X95, the 2nd runner up was a Tikka T3X TACA1 TB. We don't slouch on the prizes we give away. We also have side raffles (sell pull tab tickets and the winner gets their choice from the table they bought the ticket for.

WELL, I won on a $5 side table raffle and since they didn't have any Rugers to choose from so I got a CZ75SP01 Tactical. Then later on in the night I won on the $10 ticket table. I knew what I was going to pick if it was still there. And it was, so I'm getting a Ruger Precision Rifle (latest model in Camouflage) in .308.  All in all I probably spent about $200 on raffle tickets.

I never have won on the main entry tickets I've bought but have won some decent prizes over the years on the side raffles. (once was a package containing a SIG 516 SBR, 1911 Scorpion and a P238 and they paid the tax stamp). SO I'm doing ok I think. The guns have to get shipped to me, along with 2 guns that people won (I sold them the main entry tickets and I'll do the transfer). One friends daughter (I was sitting with them) won the Tikka T3X (6.5 Creedmoor, 24" bbl) and she's tickled to death.

So, maybe my luck will continue at the FoNRA banquet this coming Saturday night at Morrisdale.


I'll post pics in the Gun Porn thread when I get them.

Nice score!  I have only ever won one gun at a gun bash...Savage 22-250 Predator Hunter in camo with a bull barrel.  It was on a main ticket number.  I haven't been to many bashes lately mainly because the prizes were becoming all the same at every one!  The FOAC bash sounds pretty awesome!  I might have to check it out next time!

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

This is almost better than the other kind of 'lucky' lol. That's awesome, Xringshooter. Big congrats! I never win anything on raffles.
