The P230 raffle is being cancelled Login/Join 
It's all part of
the adventure...

I’ll e-mail arcwelder and advise him to donate mine to the forum. I’ve been enjoying and learning from this collective since January 2000, so my tiny contribution doesn’t even begin to give back for all I’ve gotten out of this forum. I check this forum pretty much every day, and even though I don’t comment much, this place feels like a second home. I’m a member of several other fora, but I don’t check those out anywhere near as much, sometimes going months in between. But I’d be lost without SIGforum... Thanks, Para, for all that you do to keep this thing going for all of us!


Regards From Sunny Tucson,

I wasn't in on the raffle because the gun in question just wasn't my thing, but now that some mealy mouth anonymous worm doesn't want us to have the wrong kind of fun, I will absolutely participate in whatever future activities of this type that happen!

You're not alone, brother. I'm a HQL instructor, but I'll be damned if I'm going to have one. I had enough pistols before 10/1/13, that I'm good to go. Just frees up more money for HBARs and .50BMGs.

So, along with Maryland kissing my ass, I'm going to peel off some of my AR/.50 fund to go to this fine forum and while I'm at it, a little more to DJT2020 as well.

Email inbound, Arc.

Is the issue because it is a raffle or a firearm raffle?

I came up against Texas law for raffles some years back while I was doing consulting for the American Diabetes Association.

Like here, we had to cancel the raffle (multiple items donated by Dell).

In a most recent email to para I can attest to how gracious he was in his reply. I had offered a private donation out of my gratitude to use up space with photo's in a section of the Gallery. He explained that the space and file size of the photos were on the hosts. He graciously declined my offer and I'd be more than happy to send my offer again. Sigforum, thank you, you've helped me in ways other than you can imagine.

Email will be forthcoming..thank you.
***DONATION SENT***


Regards, Will G.

I won’t lie, I am a little sad that the raffle has been cancelled but I completely understand why. I will email Arc to tell him to keep my entry because even though I have only been a member for a few years I have been lurking about this forum for much longer. This is a wonderful place with great people. Thank you!

Theres always one in the bunch, if it was about state legalities you'd have thought the person would contact the Admins and advise of the potential for having an issue in that state.

Most likely a troll, we wuz m'cain'd LOL

Buncha smart folks here, some with real legal backgrounds, others with Holiday Inn Degrees we should be able to come up with a solution...

Sorry to hear this had to be cancelled.

I am however grateful it was opened up for donations and sent something off to Arc to add to the pile.

Not much but every little bit helps. Thanks again for giving good people a place to hang, lurk, contribute and learn about just about anything in life.

I didn't enter the raffle as I'm currently scaling down my little collection. Don't shoot near as much as I used to, and I don't want to saddle my wife with liquidation after I'm gone. No, I'm not anticipating checking out in the near future but I'm sure my wife will out live me. She's as strong as an ox. As in the past, I'd contribute to the forum and not expect anything in return except continued ad free access and a great bunch of forum members -- as it's been for the many years I've hung out here.

My question though, is was this an issue because it was a fire arm being raffled, or some a-hole that though the owners were taking advantage of the members.

NavyGuy,

See Para’s reply above. Not because it was a firearm being raffled, just because it was a raffle.

Their are hunting clubs in Virginia that sell tickets, I guess it would be considered a raffle that use the daily pick 3 (Virginia) lottery drawing. The daily prizes consist of hand guns, rifles and shotguns along with other merchandise. The membership sell and purchase the so call raffle tickets and tickets are sold to non members also. Can someone explain the difference other than the state laws in which the raffle is held. It is the same thing to me.
