    I am not big on raffles. Now if GCO had one....

    I know we can't yet. :evil:

    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?

    :)

    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.

    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...

    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:

    I too spent more on tickets than I won. Ticket price > 0. :D

    So did I. But if $TICKETS > $PRIZES, the raffle throwers get to make lots of money.
