    Sig Sauer's BDX scope/rangefinder would be sweet.

    I am a 100% disabled vet and so I give 50% of to veterans for my labor. My dad had a purple heart and died from agent orange. I love when I see people and companies step up to help veterans/military/Leo

    Awsome that really would be cool. I really would like to do something special with the Purple Heart into it.
    I will he contacting some of you when the rifle finally arrives. I’m hoping by end of summer so I can have it done early fall.

    You are a Good Man for stepping up to help Veterans in this way, along with all the other folks willing to chip in and do something to help others.
    It doesn't matter if the help is large or small.
    It just MATTERS that they extend a helping hand!
    Lord knows the VA sure does fall flat when it comes to helping disabled Veterans like myself when we need help with something.
    I almost swear they intentionally work slowly in the hopes we will pass away before they have to spend any money or time to help us.
    So, again, to those who chip in to make this type of things come to fruition, a heartfelt THANK YOU for all your help!
    God Bless.

    I'm up here about 200 miles from you on the sunrise side. I Could probably turn you a muzzle break. You have to remind me though. My memory is as long as...what was I saying? Give me a shout.

    Yes the VA slogan should be hurry up and die already. That's how I feel about it. I got more PTSD from going to the VA than I did serving.

    I thought AOC said that socialized medicine was great and pointed to the VA.

    She said if it ain't broke don't fix it. Evidently she has never talked to veterans that have to use the VA for everything.

    I would like to thank you for what you are doing and thank you to all the members that have afforded to help. Unlike you guys I have no talent but I do have a couple bucks to buy some tickets with. Could you start a thread about the tickets when the time comes up to start selling them. Hope I am not out of line and apologize in advance if I am. Have a great night everyone

    Takes all kinds in our sport. When I went in the military I owned a Mossberg 500 and marlin model 60. Nothing to brag about. I still own them 35 yrs later. Maybe 30 on the marlin. Then all I did was hunt. Then I became a Smith. Then came compatition. Now I compete at 1000 yards. So basically even if you don't own a firearm but support the second amendment you are part of the sport. Everybody gives to the sport what they can. Like its been said before our sport has some of the most generous people and like on this sight people give help to others freely. Even in competition everybody helps each other even if your shooting against them. The guys at Williamsport are awesome. If you forgot to bring something to a match you will have 5 guys offer you something. As Trump would say"it's really fantastic and everyone has been fantastic it's just amazing fantastic great" Shep

    snox,
    I live in SW MI and thank you for caring about vets. Have you tried to contact https://www.michigan-sportsman.com/forum/ as a possibility to communicate the project as well as a means to link into a site that could sell the tickets? The site gets a lot of traffic and I bet it would spread like wildfire as result.
