Anyone interested in buying that “first rifle” for a youngster’s Christmas present?  I’m throwing an assist to my friend at the Artisan Tony channel in his efforts to promote a raffle drawing for a .22LR Crickett CPR, with 100% of the proceeds donated to the Fisher House Foundation. Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, and in Europe, close to the medical center or hospital it serves.

I almost forgot, the synthetic stock of this bolt-action rifle has been signed by several members of the YouTube firearms community:

MrGunsandGear – Sootch00 – SkinnyMedic – Hickok45-ChadIV888-Cutlerylover-MilitaryArmsChannel-EricIV8888-Gunwebsites-TalkingLead Lefthand-tnoutdoors9

Entries/donations are accepted at Tony’s website, which is:

The drawing is December 17, and I’ve advised Tony that if my name is drawn, he is to discard it and draw again.  The winner (within the continental US) will have a choice of having the rifle shipped to their FFL for the necessary transfer background check, or only the synthetic autographed stock if they are not interested in the FFL process.  Artisan Tony will pay shipping fees to the FFL or your chosen address.

As of December 3, this effort has raised $330 of a goal of $1500.  In previous years, this campaign has generated over $2500 for veteran’s-related support services.  I hope that you can help….let’s surpass this modest goal and place it in the rearview mirror.  Families of our veterans can use the support.
