Over the past month, you outstanding men and women have managed to raise $2190 for the Honored American Veterans Afield organization; we did not quite beat least year’s benchmark, but I dare say that is pretty awesome all the same. Thanks to everyone who donated!
As for the giveaway side of the house, all of the winners have been emailed directly, but here are the winning ticket numbers:
1. 225 2. 202 3. [...]
Thanks to some donations that would not have made it past the previous deadline, the Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway currently sits at $2,325 donated to that outstanding organization.
I do not think "thank you" quite sums up an appropriate response to that kind of opening of hearts and checkbooks, but thank you all the same.
So here is how it is… the package from CRKT has not yet materialized on my doorstep, [...]
I know momentum has slipped a little, and I know this has run a little past what I initially promised, but the Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway is still going on, you can still donate money to Soldiers’ Angels, and I will still give you tickets for the inevitable drawing we are going to have. The mail service has been dragging its feet on the promised package from CRKT, but the day after that box [...]
$So, I had promised that we were going to do the prize drawing for the Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway tomorrow.
I am going to have to postpone that on you.
Like I mentioned a few days ago, CRKT has promised some prizes for the giveaway, but I am not entirely sure what they are sending, or even how many “whats”. So, since the mail has come for Saturday, and UPS and FedEx [...]
Despite having only announced my Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway a week ago, and despite that week including a long holiday weekend, the gunblogger community has already donated $355 to that outstanding organization (you can keep up with the donations with the ticker near the top of the left column on my site).
However, it is now my distinct pleasure and honor to sweeten the pot a little more, by announcing a new prize [...]
This post will be sticky until the fundraiser concludes. Please scroll down for new posts.

I knew announcing the Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway the week before Thanksgiving was kind of a bad idea, but I wanted to get it out there and get the ball rolling, and now we are going to go back, go over the details, and pimp [...]
Hopefully you have already decided where your Thanksgiving dinner is going to be held, and you are working on the setting for your Christmas festivities, but not all of us have the ability to make such plans for the impending holidays. Having had the distinct… "privilege"… of being away from home for a back-to-back Thanksgiving and Christmas, I can personally attest to just how much it sucks to miss out on those festive occasions by [...]
Ok, actually a bit more.
As of the time of this posting, we will have raised $57.28 for Ramon Castillo’s recovery fund – as a reminder, all funds up to $100 will be matched by an anonymous donor, so we have the potential to give a fair amount of money to this hero. Additionally, I only have five entries for two copies of Dead Zero, so if you want to take advantage of my [...]
