This rifle is worth the price of a few tickets just for the workmanship on the refinish and re-blue job(s) alone! :applause:


Not to mention that it is THE most popular caliber that I can think of. Perfect rifle for the North American hunter. :Oh Yeah!:

One last kick at the can....Money sent for 5
Ya never know your luck Jordan....
PM inbound.

$40 headed your way.......It’s says you don’t need a security answer
Got it Nipper...
I think once the bank's system recognizes names - or I deposit EMT's into just the one account - it goes into auto mode. Not too sure, but it works. :not sure:
PM on its way sir.

She/He asked to remain anonymous. But they will definitely see any thanks posted here the gesture was very much appreciated so we will honor the request for anonymity.

If we tell ya we'd have to kill ya! Then what the heck are we gonna do with the body?!? :Heh, heh, heh:

So - in the interests of not having to "garden" too much - we'll keep mum. Suffice to say that it was a bit of a surprise but in retrospect it is understandable. We are VERY thankful for the re-gift of the prize and also to be able to offer it up to someone else.

THANK YOU MS., MRS., MR., YOUNG SIR!! WHOMEVER and WHEREVER YOU ARE. :Hi:

Got my numbers
Many thanks to the original donator of the rifle and who ever won the rifle and donated it back.
Hopefully one of these days our paths will cross and we can have a chat , share a lunch on the side of the road , or have a beer and chat around a fire and bullshit about our travels at the end of the day.

This rifle - the 30-06 - is THE most common caliber on the continent..... I know so, because I just said so. :Heh, heh, heh:

AND - it will kill anything that you care to hunt - right from beheading grouse (which I have done) on up to the seriously dangerous Alaskan Brown bear.....and anything in between.

WHO WOULD NOT WANT ONE OF THESE IN HIS/HER CABINET!?! :What?:

Ammo is so readily available that it is ridiculous. :Oh Yeah!:

F.Y.I. for all our members....

I have been asked to reveal the winner's name (yet again) so that those who are not sure the winner was (or is) an actual person, and that this is just not a scam can be reassured of the site's integrity.

I have to repeat that I gave my word not to disclose the name. I will not publicize the name of the winner who so generously donated the gun back to us with the stipulation that we run a one month re-raffle and get the rifle into the hands of someone who will give it the use that it deserves.

Jeeze, for real?
I'm trying to decide whether this is totally laughable or irritating, or both.
I guess everyone here doesn't have the privilege of knowing those who run the site, but they're about as stand-up of a group of guys as I've ever met...

OK this from the Donor, I hope we can now get on with selling a few more tickets and help honor Big Lew and his generosity.


"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."

this is excellent and in spite of Big Lew wanting to be anonymous, I was on another site when accusations started flying and I for one am glad to see who the generous person redonating the rifle is..this is a small site and in keeping with the naming peoples names on their first post we shouldn't have any need for secrets....Thanks for ensuring the site is beyond reproach big lew

You'd be amazed Steve...:Doh!:




Thank you Dave for stepping in and naming yourself. I am very sorry that it came to this. There was absolutely no need for you to identify yourself because Jim and I gave our word to keep you anonymous. If those who doubt and distrust are that affected by not naming the donor - well....don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out to report to Mike, Chris, or others....

I REALLY hope that those who were suspicious can now relax.

END OF RANT - sorry.... :Black Eye:

I am VERY PROUD to have met BIG LEW/Dave at JIM'S BBQ early this year.....he is exactly like he ''posts''. a warm hearted man who has ''been there/done that'' but is modest to a fault...any man on a bicycle who stares down a grizzly is the type of person I KNOW has all the ''right stuff''!!!
Blessings on you DAVE for giving the guys the OK on exposing you as the winner..... damn, I wish I had 1/2 your CLASS.!!!
best regards glenn

12 days left to the draw, a great rifle re-upped by an awesome member. Lets do Big Lew proud and get a few more tickets sold before the 30th, who doesn't need an '06 (or 2 or 3)

That scam that I just managed to dodge caused a glitch in the e-transfer of funds for a day or so - but it is all sorted now and we are good to go.

Apparently I am eligible for auto-deposit on EMT's Who knew? :Maybe:

Sure makes it easier though. :Oh Yeah!:
