I won!!!

#1 Post by JNG » Sat Feb 10, 2018 10:30 pm

Wife and I went to the local Whitetails unlimited banquet. Great time, good food and company. But.. I won a 223 savage with a $20.00 ticket.
First time I won anything. I am grinning.

CONGRATS ! !

It's a great feeling - my Son had the same thing, when he won a scoped .223 Savage Axis package on a $20 rafffle ticket at a game dinner a few years ago.

I'm sure that you'll like yours as much as he like his - at least, the price was right ! :mrgreen:

Well done!
I could buy every raffle ticket at one of those functions and NOT win a thing- I've never won anything when I buy!

Over the years I think I've won about a dozen guns... Two on board ship in the Navy... After the 2nd, they wouldn't let me buy my tickets in the Wardroom... :twisted: It IS a great feeling. And that feeling remains with you! Congrats... I hear they're great guns.

It's not just gun raffles but Trout Unlimited, RMEF, GUNS MAGAZINE or any other giveaway! I'm to the point where I've stopped buying tickets...
