I can't be in the raffle since I'm one of the people who's going to keep Wolfpack honest at the drawing, but I'm in for a little cash anyway.

I'm in. My condolences to the family. If anyone reading this feels like life is just not worth living anymore, please reconsider. If you need someone to talk to please feel free to contact myself or the board. We all have problems, some problems just seem to be too much to handle. Please talk it over before doing something drastic. Many of us have been there and can relate, let's stick together.

I want to second that and Reitterate. If you do have thoughts of ending it all, you have NO IDEA of the pain and damage that you leave behind for your friends and family to have to deal with. If you want to hurt yourself, you have to ask if you really want to hurt the ones that love you. Six years and countless therapy sessions for me on the loss of a dear friend left me scarred for life. I will send what I can. im truly sorry for your loss. And his poor mom... Heaven help and guide her. [V]

Wolfpack had to drive a U-Haul to CA this weekend. I do not think that he will be able to respond to the post or e-mails. Stoke, I know that he will greatly appreciate the mags. He is going to contact other vendors first part of the week to try to increase the "prizes". Thanks again for all of your support. Tom

Bob, Im in for $50. If I win, I would like you to re-raffle the items. I just lost my grandmother so I know how expensive it is to bury a loved one. A good way to save some major bucks is to order the casket though one of the wholesalers. You can easily find one online. They delivered a nice casket for 50% of the cost of the funeral home. The funeral home by law has to take delivery of the casket. The companies will truck it to the home within 24hours. Better yet get a print out of the cost and a lot of the funeral homes will match. I got the exact same brand name walnut casket for about $1800 delivered. The same one in the funeral home was $3500. I asked them and they said they would match but was too late to stop the delivery. Best wishes to the family.

I never knew Pat, But I just felt the need to help. I had an AR15.com member in the past and I just want to pass on the help I got. I Just happened to be ordering a Tactical Mag chest pouch. Thought maybe someone out there might want one too.

Just curious, how much have you collected? It's amazing what we can accomplish when everyone gives just a little.
Link Posted: 3/23/2003 4:07:28 PM EDT
Wolfpack, This is a very nice gesture. I applaud you. However, I must ask one question: Have you verified the legality of this raffle? I'm not trying to be a jerk, but these raffles for friends were tried on other boards, and found to be in violation of some state laws. Particularly if the prizes involve firearms or if they are valued over certain limits. Basically, the raffle could fall under the gambling statutes. When these other raffles were checked, they were not in compliance. Most participants chose to just "donate" their raffle money, rather than receive a prize. If all has been checked, please respond and count me in.

Good thing I live in [b]Las Vegas[/b]. [banana] I doubt the gubmint really cares about a little raffle, I do know the Cheif of Police and most of the City Council members though...I think I'm o.k. [;)]

Yes, I saw that you were from NV. However, gambling is regulated there, is it not? Seriously, I'm not trying to be an ass, but a year or so ago, there was another individual trying to raise funds for another deceased gunsmith's family. He was offering knives, firearms, and such as prizes. He had declared a winner, and was then notified by his state's investigators that the raffle was illegal and he was commiting a felony. Remember, a felony means no more guns. Had he shipped out the firearms or other prizes he would have lost his business (gunsmith). I understand and appreciate what you are doing. However, I'm sure we all would like to make sure that we are not contributing to a possible illegal enterprise. You may be in good standing with the local cops, but how does that help us? As I mentioned before, when the other raffle was determined to be illegal, all the participants "donated" their raffle money, and declined to accept any prizes. I would like to help, but not at the cost of commiting, or participating in a crime. That is why I requested confirmation that all legalities have been satisfied.
