Santa Stopped Early

Post by HunterGKS » December 20th, 2015, 7:23 am

One of our local VFDs has a gun raffle every December where they give away 27 guns. The winning numbers are based on the Pic 3 Ohio Lottery drawing every night in December except Sundays. Last night about 9, I got a call saying my numbers had come in & I had won a Springfield Armory XDS 45 Auto. :cheers: :cheers:

Does anyone have 1 of these pistols or have any other 1st hand knowledge? I already have a Ruger LC9s Pro in 9mm as a carry gun but you can never have too many guns.

Thx all. I'll fill out the paperwork on Tues but it will probably be awhile before I get the gun. I don't think they order all 27 guns ahead of time as it is likely that a lot won't be won. I'll post something when I get it.

Considering that the ticket was $25 & the gun is in the $600 neighborhood, to coin a phrase: "I don't think so, Killer!"

(Who can tell me from where I stole that phrase?)

Lucky dog you. Congrats. Heard it's a fine pistol. Can't go wrong with a .45.

FYI in most of those raffles the guns are handled through a local dealer and normally you can choose any other gun that falls in the same price range if you would rather have something else. I have done that before and the dealer doesn't really care since the cost is the only thing that matters to him.
Either way, CONGRATS on the win!!

Thx all. Jamey, The way this raffle is set-up, you can either take the gun you won or not take it but you can't get anything different. Somehow they have it where every gun is won so that they are all pre-ordered & at the gun guys before the 1st of Dec. All the guns have been accepted so far except a Ruger SP101 in 357. The lady isn't sure if she wants it.
