I've been hyper-ventilating for a week or so hoping all the pieces would finally fall into place so I could make this announcement. I'm pleased to announce that Para USA will be donating a new handgun to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous to help with our fund raising efforts to benefit Project Valour-IT.
I don't have the details as to exactly what model it will be, but I'd sure settle for any in the above picture, wouldn't you?
The Para USA pistol will be shipped to Hi Cap Gun Works in Reno in time for the Rendezvous, so we will all be able to see it first hand. If it is won by a Nevada resident, then it can be transferred to him right there and he can take it home, provided all the usual other reg's are followed. If it's won by a non-Nevada resident, then Hi Cap Gun Works will take care of shipping it to the winner's own home town FFL holder.
With the addition of the Para USA pistol to the Hi-Point 9mm. Pistol and the $2,000 four day training session at Front Sight Institute, we will have three very nice items in the fund raising raffle. For you folks attending the Rendezvous, ask your friends if they'd like you to buy some tickets in their name, too. The more tickets we sell, the more money we can raise for those voice actuated laptop computers for our injured servicemen.
The plan is for a minimum of 100 $10 raffle tickets to be sold at the Saturday night dinner. That means we will be raising a minimum of $1000 for Project Valour-IT! If more tickets beyond the initial 100 sell ,that's even more money for Valour-IT.
