We came up with this idea a little while ago. My mother-in-law had just got done with chemotherapy, and we were talking about it at the shop. Plus we’ve got our big event coming up on October 4th, and had been talking about doing some sort of charity to go along with that.
So we decided to take a Stag 15 and paint it pink, then raffle it off for Breast Cancer Research. I took the gun back to my smith ( www.gundoctor.wordpress.com ) and told him what we were doing. He volunteered to do the Duracoating, but said that if he was going to do it, he was going to make it nice. Turns out Joe’s family has been through this too.
This is what we’ve got so far. The camera wasn’t very good, and the job isn’t done yet. He still needs to touch up and clear coat. We’ll post final pictures when I put up the raffle details probably first part of next week.
We’ll be raffling off tickets at $5 each. Anybody can enter. The winner will be announced at the October 4th Mega Fun Shoot. All proceeds go to charity. I’ll post up the charity details when we put up the offical raffle next week. All federal, state, and local laws apply. I’ll also be begging other gunbloggers to post it.
