Default We won a Raffle!

Family Win!

Our dad (83) delivers meals for meals on wheels. I told him last year when I went with him . They needed to be delivering to him. It's great that he is still able to get around like he does

Anyways, he was selling raffle tickets for a shot gun to be given away by meals on wheels in Abilene. He had 10 tickets left over he couldn't sell or got tired of trying to sell. So he bought them himself. He put my name on 5 and my brothers (texaspacker) here on TBH name on 5 of the tickets. Well as luck would have it the pulled my brothers name outta the hat.

It's a Browning Citori C 725 field 12 guage 3" 28" DS model.

Neither of us are big shot gunners. He said it looks good sittin in the gun case beside his Henry Golden Boy collection. He can chime in if he might be interested in selling it with dove season on us!

I will post pictures in a minute.

Thanks Dave!
Thanks Mom & Dad!
Thanks Meals on Wheels Plus. Abilene Texas 325-672-5059.
The Henry GB it's sitting next to was also won in a raffle. I bought the it from a guy my brothers knows. Two charity gun raffle winners!
The suggest MSRP was $2200.00. I found it in my 8 year old Gun Buyers Guide. NIB $995.00.
Yes I could look it up but for grins. What's it worth?
No Sir I do not want to sell it.
