CGG Education Foundation 2009 Matching Rifle Auction
These rifles could be yours……
Cody, WY – -(AmmoLand.com)- Each year a team of ACGG members create a firearm project to showcase to the public the art of custom gunmaking. These projects are inspired by historically famous firearm components, a specific theme or gun, or the specialties of team members.
One lucky person each year becomes the owner of an outstanding example of custom gunmaking. Someone who could only dream about owning such a firearm has the opportunity to own one for a $20 raffle ticket.
The drawing for the winning ticket is held each year at the Annual Exhibition in Reno. Ticket sales are limited to 4,000, and the drawing is held whether or not all tickets are sold. There is no limit of number of tickets each person can purchase. The winner does not have to be present and is notified by phone. All state and federal laws apply. Void where prohibited. Ticket purchasers are mailed a numbered receipt and a color brochure.
The bidding process will begin on the 1st of March 2009 and will conclude on the 1st of December 2009.
The bidding process is available to all persons 21 years of age or older that meet the Federal requirements for purchasing a firearm except ACGG Education Foundation Directors.
The following process will be followed to award the two rifles:
