A few days ago, I shared the story of Amy Dillon. I asked for your help, because Amy’s house got decimated by Hurricane Matthew. I appealed to veterans, active duty readers and gun rights advocates to band together to help this Marine and gun rights advocate rebuild.
I also dangled a bit of a carrot in front of you. For every $25 donated to help Amy Dillon rebuild her home, you have a chance to win a rifle. An awesome rifle.
The prize is a custom AR-15 rifle built entirely from parts donated by shooters across the nation, including scope, case and other accessories with an approximate retail value of $2,000. South Jordan, Utah, company Vigilante Arms is performing a custom Cerakote paint job done in Dillon’s favorite colors, crimson and grey while Springville-based Rangemasters of Utah is hosting the drawing and will handle the legalities of transferring the rifle to the prize winner, including background checks and shipping to an authorized dealer in the state of the winner’s residence.
Wanna see some pictures? I bet you do! Here’s what the prize looks like!
And for your chance to win, all you have to do is help a Marine and gun rights advocate rebuild her home!
I know the holidays are coming up, and money will probably be tight, and you will probably want to spend what you have on your loved ones. I get it.
But as we approach the holiday season, I also hope you will consider helping someone whose holiday may not be the greatest this year – someone who has had her life devastated by a freak of nature – someone who spent 12 years in the service of this nation, and now spends her life defending your Second Amendment rights and helping people exercise them responsibly.
I hope you will open your hearts to Amy – especially as the holidays approach.
And if you do, you may just grab this beauty of a rifle as a prize!
