Soldier's Angels is running the on-line ticket sales ($10 each, no limit!), and there is also a chance to win a four day training course from the Front Sight Firearms Training Institute worth $2,000!
Drawing will be on Saturday evening, September 12th at the
Gun Blogger Rendezvous
at the Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno, Nevada.
The winner need not be present to win.
(But you ought to be anyway!)
It is up to the online raffle ticket purchaser to verify that they can
legally receive and own this pistol where they live, and the winner
must be a resident of the United States. If they cannot legally own this
pistol, they are automatically disqualified from the raffle, and there
is no substitution or other prize to be awarded. All decisions are
final. Raffle tickets sold at the Rendezvous, and raffle tickets sold
online will be combined in the drawing.
Important: To win a gun in the raffle, make sure you can legally own it
before you buy a ticket.
If you want to win one of the many, many other prizes being given away, you either have to attend, or you'd better know someone who is! ;-)
All this was shamelessly lifted from Kevin's site in hoping for more sales for Soldiers' Angels. Kudos to Kevin for his efforts in supporting this group.
