Title: Raffle for Taurus Millenium
Post by: Kat Kanning on November 11, 2007, 07:12 AM NHFT
I was given this gun, and don't particularly want it, so I thought I'd raffle it off and give all the money to the Liberty Scholarship Fund.  It's a Taurus Millenium PT111 Pro, 9mm.  Comes with case, holster, 2 clips.  It looks new to me, but I don't really know if it's been fired or not, but could probably find out.  Tickets will be $10.  I'll do a drawing for it at Burning Porcupine 2008.

Some info from manufacturer (http://www.taurususa.com/products/product-details.cfm?model=111B&category=Pistol)

I ordered blank raffle ticket stock for my printer, but until then, I'll just keep a list of names/ ticket numbers.

1. How many rounds do the mags hold?
2. Do you accept PayPal?
3. When do ticket sales end?

1. Uh 10 according to the manufacturer web page.  I don't have any amo to load one and check.
2. Yes (bookish_lass at yahoo dot com)
3. When I sell 100 tickets or during burning porcupine, whichever comes first.

so...

$1000 goes to the LSFund
a decent gun goes to one lucky winner
a sense of dispair goes to the unlucky ticketholder, but remember

"It's for the Children"

the transfer of ownership will be very quiet if you wish .... or loud if you prefer.

If the federales ask who won ... we will tell them a friend of the children of NH.

I don't think we're coming through Concord again until Thansgiving.  Will PM you address.  Checks to LSF might be a little difficult, since I'm doing the raffle, rather than the LSF doing it.
