    Forum Sponsor-Want a new Kimber or other Raffle gun to Open Carry in VA?

    First.. I am not a big fan of the NRA. That said, it was explained to me what the "Friends of the NRA" do. Basically, it gives money earned back into the state where it was earned to provide shooting and safety programs to youths and others that my not otherwise taken that training. So I signed up to help raise money and put on a banquet in September.. Meanwhile, we are holding some raffles.. Good Luck.

    Thank you for saying that. There are so many facets to the NRA that are run independently, and the instruction, safety, local, and range development programs often get lumped together with the controversial Institute for Legislative Action.

    I worked with the Friends of NRA locally for a couple of years. Great program.

    Ed -- bought my tickets but the page is kind of confusing as to whether the raffle date for all is the 3/11/12, or is that just for the SAR-XV?

    Here is the thing.. Multiple Raffles are going on at http://LoudounCountyFriendsofNRA.org

    The Sterling Arsenal SAY-XV will be drown at the Weekly Virginia Open Carry Breakfast at the Coney Island Diner in Ashburn on Sunday at 0930. As of right now, there are 28 tickets left for the Kimber Ultra CDP II pistol. If those 28 tickets sell before Sunday morning, I expect to draw that number as well.

    Very pretty.
    Why does it look wet? Is that just bad lighting or is there something on it? (just curious)

    That's what she said...

    Some guns are packed and shipped in oiled bags to keep the air off the metal. They don't know if they will sell in a week or a year. As soon as you win, you give your gun a good cleaning.. proper lube and start breaking it in. :-)

    I say, Ed licked it.

    Ed's actually right - some guns are shipped in more oil than others. Clean her up and she'll be right as rain.
