    Good idea. Probably sell more tickets and has less potential for schedule conflicts and delivery/shipping problems.

    I think Im going to wait until after my trip later this month. getting the raffle just right is proving a little tricky and I leave for Namibia in two weeks.

    the moderators want to make sure that no one can sue me or the forum (sad that we need to worry about that) so I need to word it in a certain way and have lots of legal jargon in there.

    I'm in for $20 Matt, and I would never remotely consider doing business with Searcy after this matter.

    Sorry, lost track of the progress/changes. I'm interested in the raffle, too, not so much to win (yeah, who wouldn't want it), but more so to help Matt out of a pinch.

    Keeping an eye out for this- even with money being tight right now, it's worth a chance at a rifle I would NEVER otherwise own!

    Like I said earlier, I'm game. Put me down for 2 tickets. I'm glad this will be able to help you out....and like others have said it would be a neat rifle to own.

    Have a good hunt, and definitely post some pics on your return. Good luck!

    so I told Searcy about the raffle and here is his response:

    such a friendly guy (heavy sarcasm)... at any rate this means I will be able to take some pictures for raffle (no idea what he wants for shipping yet though).

    If he is sending it do you still need to raffle it off? Sounds like you are getting your rifle back.

    im betting he hasnt changed his mind about wanting the money. the raffle idea was to help pay the repair bill and help me get rid of the rifle, both of those issues still exist if he sends it back to me. the repairs and shipping are still $1000 (he asked for $150 for return shipping).
