I have but it was a raffle at work. We bought squares like for the supper bowl. Then used the lottery to pick the numbers. Guy wanted 200 for a winchester 94. So the squares were 2.00 each.
But i have a couple freinds win at pheasants forever raffles.

Shell oil had a contest back in the 1970's I entered and won a Winchester 1200 12 ga.

Got the notification in the mail and dad and I drove 135 miles to get time sensitive entry in the mail to get back in time.  A few weeks late it showed up in the mail. :)

I never won a gun in a raffle before, but I did win the local big buck contest one year, and won my frist Weatherby rifle. A Mark v stainless synthetic in 300 Wby, and that was the start of weatherby fever with me  :o  8)

I won my first ever Weatherby at a raffle. I was just a kid, just starting to hunt. It was a Vanguard in .308. I shot my first buck with it too!

I was lucky enough to win at a wild game dinner. The $40 ticket for the dinner included the rifle raffle. It was a browning 300 win mag. I had a choice of the rifle or $1000. I took the money and used it for an elk tag in Wyoming and a desert whitetail tag in New Mexico. Shot a 6 pt.buck and a cow elk.

Shoot, you guys are way too lucky.  I've never won a gun, and usually don't win jack during any raffle.  However, during a smoke event, I won two boxes of Perdomo cigars, a lighter, a cutter, an ashtray, and a subscription to Cigar Snob magazine.  From 8 items in the raffles, I won 6 of them.  I've never been that lucky before.  ;D ;D ;D

Long time back, a 870 20GA. pump action Remington shot gun. still have it. I have bought enough raffle tickets that would be equal 2 or 3 Weatherby's.

I used to be lucky once in a while. I have won a 50cal flintlock, an 870 combo slug/shotgun, a marlin centennial in 44-40, and a Ruger Vaquero in 45 long colt with a holster. but nothing for the last 15 years. Like some others I have spent enough on tickets to buy a few Mark V's. LOL!

I haven't won a firearm yet. For a lot of years I put my money into shotguns at Ducks Unlimited banquets. Someday, that all might change.
