Son #1 was good enought to have his name drawn for a Mossberg in .270


and a Thompson Impact in .50 cal


.270 went back to the LGS while we think about it, might just pick up a scope or 2 for some other guns.

Also "won" some other assorted knives, .20 ga. shells, hats and such, not a bad night.

    Man, you could a given me or linefinder that .270 ya know. Besides, they don't bite. Anyway, congrats on the prizes. What does NWTF stand for?

    Great scores all around! You guys have way better luck than I ever do. I've never won a thing in these raffles.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Thanks, I have no issues with .270's, Son #1 is using the Remington 700 as his deer gun for now and I have a Ruger also, just have no room in the safe for another .270.

    "Winning" is subjective at these things, sometimes you get a nice gun at a good discount, sometimes you break even and some times you win dog food, turkey hunting videos, and gloves:tooth:.

    My son actually bouced a ping pong ball into the appropriate Red Solo Cup and had a 1 in 12 chance at the .270.

    No rebarreling, just a $275 credit at the LGS. I believe the turkeys are Easterns. The wife is wondering if they sell new couches at the LGS.

    You're a good man Chiro! There will be a special place in heaven for you.

    I went to one of those last year and was amazed at the amount of money all the turkey hunters were throwing around for raffle tickets. The ticket packages started at 100.00! Everyone at our table kicked in 20.00 and split one pack of tickets and my buddy won an 870. When we used to go to the CCA banquets, we always went home with armloads of stuff and I've noticed that fisherman are much cheaper than turkey hunters.
