At the risk of asking a stupid question, why not?
Funds probably. There was a NRA raffle on here a little while back. I'm not sure how many shops or manufacturers would be willing to donate to a developing organization such as GCO. That's not a bad thing...we have to start somewhere.

Actually it has to do with Georgia's laws concerning fundraising raffles for non-profit groups. We won't be able to do raffles for a bit over a year still.

There's a waiting period for fundraising raffles for nonprofits? I'm trying to think of a logical reason for that ...
This is the same state that has the "Public Gathering" law and you're looking for logic in the statutes?

Oh, didn't know that. Thanks for the clarification.

Good point.

But even the PG law has a history that's explainable, if not logical. I learned that yesterday, reading around the GCO site articles. Informative stuff.
There is one coming out soon that will blow away the others in terms of content. :wink:

Yeah, it is explained by the fact that having a public gathering law made it easier to control the black population in Georgia.

The only thing I remember from the last raffle was the only person who actually won anything was the guy selling the tickets.

Probably just a coincidence...

:wink:

Hey old man if your trying to say something just say it! Less'n yer skeered.... :boxing:

Trust me, if I coulda fixed that raffle the LAST thing I woulda won would be another shotgun. Got plenty already. Plus if I could fix the cash 3 I woulda just put a boatload of money in that. Sadly the reason I won was I spent way more than I should have on tickets so the odds were a bit more in my favor than the average guy that buys one, two or ten. The big problem with that is I spent more on tickets than the value of the gun I won! :banghead:
