Not me. Latest raffle was Saturday nite.I bought ten tickets for 10 guns.Some pretty good guns some not.Hell I would be happy to win a Red Ryder after all this time.LOL I don't really mind because the money most times goes to 4H clubs or scholarships for kids as this one did.Anyone luckier than me?

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.

No,but I have a friend that had to have been the luckiest SOB there ever was.He went on a 9 out of 10 run one time about 25 years ago.He might not have won the main item of the raffle,but won something.He still brags about it to this day
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

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 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.
