It has come to my attention that there might be a concern about the transparency surrounding the re-raffling of the rifle because original winner wished to remain anonymous. I, Big Lew, Dave Hertslet, was the winner. I in no way wanted anyone to feel that there was anything underhanded going on. I asked that the rifle be re- raffled for Two reasons...first and foremost is the real possibility that I won’t get a chance to enjoy it, and secondly I wanted to give this site an opportunity to glean a bit more money to keep it afloat. My decision was not influenced in any way by any fellow members, and especially by those running the site. I hope this will satisfy any curiosity about possible alternative motives.
