USMC Scout Sniper Association Annual Sweepstakes

Tuesday, February 28th, 2023

FOR FOURTEEN YEARS, USMC Scout Sniper Association has offered the public the opportunity to win some of the finest and most authentic clones of US Marine Corps sniper rifles ever seen. Built and donated by our tremendous supporters in the shooting sports industry, these “0317 Day” raffles raised much-needed funds for our programs that continue to support the families of our fallen Marines, provide assistance to our Scout Snipers in transition and recognize the dedication and achievements of our active-duty Marine Scout Snipers.

From the Vietnam-era Winchester Model 70 that Bret won in 2022 and the authentic Mk13 Mod7 package Rad took home in 2020, to the entire M40-series of Marine Corps sniper rifles going back to the beginning, we’ve offered an example of every sniper rifle used by Marines from the Vietnam-era to the present day.

These raffles have been great fundraisers for our charitable programs, but they have also served as an important history lesson about the weapons and the men who carried them in service to our country.

The sad fact is the parts and components required to build an accurate M40 series clone are becoming more scarce and much more valuable. While it’s still possible to build a good clone, it’s not realistic to expect a donor to part with such valuable, original gun parts. So, we’ve decided to change up our offerings a bit.

We’re going to focus on great modern rifles that anyone would be proud to own

for a variety of uses, from hunting and competition, to hard use on the job.

We can’t think of a better rifle to start with than KMW’s Zealot in .308!

We’ve made our raffles available to the shooting public for 14 years, and that will not change as we transition to a sweepstakes. In fact, most of our 0317 Day raffle rifles have been won by folks outside of our Scout Sniper community. The support we’ve seen from military families, hunters, shooters, collectors and gun enthusiasts everywhere has been absolutely tremendous, so…

Pepper’s Donation Drop – 2022 Toy Drive

Sunday, November 13th, 2022

You may recognize Pepper and her handler Justin Melnick from the hit CBS series “SEAL Team”. Pepper is raising funds for working K9s via Military Working Dog Team Support Association, Inc an all-volunteer 501(c)3 charity.

Here’s Pepper’s pitch….”If you donate $18 to MWDTSA, you will be purchasing the ‘Magnum Black Stars and Stripes’ rope toy from USA-K9 by SodaPup pictured on the right. It’s made from extra sturdy rubber so teeth like mine can’t bite through it. As an added bonus, from November 1 through December 15, 2022, USA-K9 by SodaPup will match your tax-deductible donation with TWO additional toys. That’s right, you’re purchasing three toys for the price of one. Thank you!”

Once the fundraising drive is over, MWDTSA will send the toys to working dogs.

Disabled Veteran to Conduct March to Raise Funds for Gulf War Syndrome Research

Monday, September 26th, 2022

We received this info from a sponsor who asked if we could share it.

Hello Dear Friends,

My name is John Mumby and I am a proud Gulf War Veteran from Operation Desert Storm (1990- 1991). I would like to take a moment of your time to share with you the lasting effects of what is called “Gulf War Syndrome”. In the spring of 2020, I started developing neuromuscular and skeletal symptoms from the inhalation of Saran gas and other chemical agents due to improper exposure and disposal during the war. These symptoms are debilitating and chronic and have taken me out of the work force like so many other Gulf war vets. The hardest part about this is I have passed on progressive debilitating health issues to three of my children.

I am setting out on my last road march from Waskom Tx, to El Paso TX in an effort to raise awareness for other veterans suffering from Gulf War syndrome and to gain the attention of our state congress and senators to press forward with legislation to force the Veteran’s administration to recognize Gulf War Syndrome as a disability and all of its symptoms.

I am humbly requesting your assistance in this endeavor. I will need financial support on the road march to El Paso, TX. This a planned, 6O day walk with military backpack (rucksack or ruck) and I am asking that you go the distance with me and sponsor me by the miles walked for the Gulf War Syndrome Research at UT Southwestern, in Dallas, TX. Any amount will provide hope for this and other broken warriors!

All funds are to be directed to the Col. Bill Davis fund at engage.utsouthwestern.edu/donate-vets. If you wish to support me personally, please present all donations to my wife Lisa Mumby. Her contact info is 903-975-3144

Thank you in advance for your support and donations to finding a cure.
