Rifle Raffle: Chance to Win Benefits NGEF
NGAUS Washington Report
(Nov. 6, 2012) - The National Guard Educational Foundation is raffling a special commemorative Barrett MRAD—multirole, adaptive design—rifle.
The bolt-action, extended-range sniper rifle, valued at $6,000, is Shooting Illustrated magazine’s 2012 Rifle of the Year. It features a user-changeable barrel system, an easily accessed trigger module and a foldable stock.
Barrett, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., produced one MRAD with special insignia to commemorate the Guard’s 375th anniversary and donated it to NGEF to help with fundraising. The foundation operates the National Guard Memorial Museum and other public education programs.
“We’re excited to team with Barrett on this very special raffle,” said retired Maj. Gen. Gus L. Hargett Jr., the president of NGEF and NGAUS. “Early interest in tickets has been very strong, which is really no surprise. Not only is this a great rifle, it’s a true one-of-a-kind collector’s item.”
Every dollar donated through www.ngef.org/MRAD equals one chance to win. There is no limit to the number of entries. Every dollar will go to NGEF.
The winner, who must be 18 years of age and able to comply with all applicable firearms laws and regulations, will be selected at random Dec. 12, the eve of the Guard’s 376th birthday.
Complete rules and restriction are available at www.ngef.org/MRAD.
