Gun Raffle to Support a School?

Gun Raffle

This comes via a Gun Digest editor who was de-junking some draws. It’s a raffle ticket from a couple years back he bought on a grouse-hunting trip to northern Wisconsin. To some, the idea of a gun raffle — with proceeds going to the local school — held at the local tavern (after the pie auction, of course) seems a bit out of the ordinary. As for us, we believe there would be a heck of a lot fewer budgetary shortfalls if more school followed Lugerville and other small towns' leads.
