SHOT Show is a lot of work. It consists of long days of walking and dodging carts and crowds. But one of my favorite respites from teh long days is visiting AmericanSnipers.org. If you are unfamiliar, AmericanSnipers.org is a non-profit group (501-(C)3) staffed by volunteer former and current military and LE snipers. They raise awareness of the needs of our snipers as well as funds to supply equipment not supplied by the Government. They are extremely successful. From 2003-2010 they supported 675 different platoons. Additionally, they are well known for their raffles and innovative morale items such as patches, coins, and t-shirts.
This year, their main booth will be #L339. But AS.org will also have representatives at various “hide sites” with several major vendors to answer questions about their raffle and merchandise.
Raffle you say? That’s right. Every year, they put together one or more specialized firearm packages as well as memorial items and this year is no different.
31 Souls and Heads Down Rifle Package
Here’s what AS.org has to say about this rifle.
Our good friends at 31 Souls and Head Down Products LLC have donated the following rifle package for our next raffle. The rifle is as shown along with a hardcase, 30 round magazine, Storm Tactical databook, SpyderCo folding knife, and other accessories as we put this package together. The rifle will be on display at booth L339 at SHOT 2013. The new PV13 is a complete rifle that is jam packed with some really nice features typically found on much higher priced AR-15?s. Some of these high end components include a Geissele 2-Stage Trigger, Billet Upper and Lower Receivers, NIBX (Nickel Boron) Bolt Carrier Group, KNS Anti-Rotation Pins and a 13? model of the new HD Provectus Rail System. The PV13 will be available in 5.56 .
The drawing for the rifle package will be held on March 31, 2013. Tickets are $10 each. Winner must be able to lawfully possess a firearm. Proceeds go to AmericanSnipers.org to purchase gear for deployed snipers and designated marksmen.
What’s cool is that you don’t have to be at SHOT Show to participate. Purchase your tickets On-Line Now at www.americansnipers.org
As always, AS.org also has some really cool swag which can be had for a modest donation. There are several patch designs courtesy of Combat Swag and z3ro Solutions as well as a new coin and ceramic dogtag:
- 10th Anniversary Coin
- Ceramic Dogtag (both Non-PC and PC versions) – limited numbers of this item and VERY limited numbers of the PC version.
