    That's because my nephew won it in a raffle at a local gunshop that was having a grand "re-opening" this past Saturday:wow:

    He bought ten tickets and won this rifle!:wavey:

    Has anyone here ever won a gun in a raffle or drawing? I am kicking myself because I didn't go to the event with him. Who knows, maybe I would have bought those tickets instead of him:crying:

    Hopefully I'll be going to one on the 19th!
    Maybe not though.:crying:

    There will be about 100-150 people there though.
    So a decent chance to win but most likely wouldn't happen for me, lol.

    I paid $15 to enter a raffle about 5 years ago and came away with an HK USPf .40S&W DAO.

    Story of my life!:rofl:

    The shop where he won it is my favorite gun shop so far! They are high in their prices but their transfers are only $25 (BG check INCLUDED!!!:wow:)

    Like someone said....a free gun is a GREAT gun:wavey:

    I won a Taylor's & Company Winchester 1892 Takedown replica in a sweepstakes. Sorriest piece of crap I've ever had the displeasure to shoot. But hey, it was free.

    I won a DPMS AR in a drawing once. Replaced a few parts. Not half bad, but not great.
