The Smith Mountain Lake Pistol Shooting Association is holding a Gun Raffle in support of 4-H Youth Programs for 2013. This year’s goal is to raise at least $2000 to cover the costs of 10 new .177 Caliber Air Pistols and associated accessories to provide for and support a new Pistol Shooting Program for 4-H kids in summer youth camp. The kids already shoot long gun air rifles and archery during the summer months and to also get them acclimated in handgun shooting and handgun safety.

The raffle tickets will go on sale next week at the following locations and are $5.00 per ticket: Blackwater TR Gun Store on Scruggs Road, Franklin Outdoors in Rocky Mount, The UPS Store in Westlake (Hardy) and the range officer booth at the 4-H shooting range.

Canik firearms are world-renowned for their accuracy, fit and finish and attention to detail and are made in the Salsimaz Armory in Turkey by hand and are very similar to the CZ75 line of handguns – but have a much higher rating. They have the best trigger system of all the designs and use very high quality components including MecGar magazines. The Shark “C” is one of the nicest pistols they produce in the lineup.

This year’s prize is really desirable with a very hard to find Canik 55 Shark “C” Chrome plated 9mm Concealed Carry Custom Pistol along with 500 rounds of PMC full metal jacket target ammo. The raffle drawing will take place on Sept. 3rd, 2013 at 6pm. (Winners need not be present).
