Your not crazy... but you are running the risk of receiving a monumental b!tch slap from Canebrake when he get's wind of this!

I'd avoid him at the next FTF Shoot N Hoot if I were your Olympus.

Can you sell raffle tickets through the forum? If the administration approves, I will participate.

You could sell tickets for $20 each or 3 for $50.

I've PMd the admin about doing a raffle with any proceeds to benefit the forum. Haven't heard back yet.

I think you should just sell them to people who have bought your grips like myself. It would also give you a slight bump in grip sales for those wanting to get in the program.

if i'm not mistaken, Cane has a Rock Island 1911 9mm, I know he mentioned owning a Star B 9mm....so he might only give you a minor b!tch slap

Wait...what grips? Olympus makes grips? What's the website? I'll buy a set just to get on the .45 clearance sale list! :-D

Seriously, though, would like to see the grips and be on the list for consideration for buying the .45s.
