    !!! RAFFLE RAFFLE RAFFLE!!!

    Righty-ho yo!

    Going to run a raffle for my Marlin model 60.
    Was thinking $20 for a ticket with a limit of 2 tickets per person.

    Will find some creative/stupid but fair and unbiased way of picking the winner somewhere towards the end of the month or a little sooner.

    Let me know if you want to enter, figure it is a bit of fun. Also let me know if you truly feel ticket price is a little steep.

    The ticket price seems fine Nibblet. The only comment I would make is raffling a firearm on a forum full of firearms owners may not get the level of participation you were hoping for. Why not just sell?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Just for fun. Was thinking of maybe only selling 20 tickets and shooting a dart board at 1000m to decide the winner or something. Just might take quite a few rounds to get a winner

    Be careful. Firearms are a prohibited prize and there's no distinction between public and private raffles... The Rules for Running a Gambling Activity - dia.govt.nz

    Hmmm, I did wonder if that may be a hiccup. Might have to scratch that idea. Oh well.

    Welcome back to the long white cloud. That has pulled the rug out somewhat Nibblet.

    Cheers Rushy. Back to the grind today...
    Sorry to throw a dampener on your idea Nibblet. But you can't be too careful.

    Yeah I thought it would be a bit of fun.

    I get a bit of money for new toy and someone gets a cheap rifle.
    Guess if it's it's illegal though and someone got a little disgruntled it could be bad for me and the forum.

    As if you need another rifle BRADS. It was a nice looker though and knowing Nibblet, the barrel would be in original mint condition under the carbon. Ha ha ha ha

    dammit. I was keen on a ticket. Stupid laws.

    What if we gave a koha of $20?

    So its not a raffle we are just "donating" money for a number and if our number gets picked you give us a rifle as a thank you for donating to a worthy cause
