Yes, certainly, I'm outraged. Why not a Colt? But I'll give you an address to send the gun so I can bring it to the range and put a few hundred rounds through it, and give you a full report.

The poor taste is in not capitalizing Glock.

Croatia makes a pretty good gun. The XD was the NRA’s handgun of the year a few years ago.

Yeh, Springfield Armory is only about a 30 minute drive away for me.

They make great stuff but they ain’t cheap.

Recently got my CCW so I’ve been going cheap and/or used lately. Get more guns that way.

:)

Does Springfield Armory have a museum?

Congrats on your CCW.

Not that I’m aware of.

Security is tighter than hell. Probably 99.9% of people entering the door never get past the enclosed reception area.

Of course, this is the manufacturing plant. They may have a museum elsewhere.

YES! Are there not enough good American designed and made handguns to auction?

Another poll in this thread:
Poll:Do you think it is appropriate for the GOP to raffle off a Glock 23 handgun in Pima County?

They ask the question 2 ways. One gets a yes, the other gets a no. The poll that gives the desired result will be the one that gets quoted.

Nah. No worse that naming your TV station "KGUN".

I think the choice to use the same make of gun is in poor taste. They should have traded it in for an American-made 1911.

Imagine if instead of shooting her, Loughner had run her over with a red Corvette. Raffling off some other kind of car later would be fine. Raffling off a red Corvette would not.

Bah, I think oversensitivity is in poor taste!

You take your donations where you can find them.
Glock is one of the most popular pistols available in the U.S.
They will do well with this raffle.

Is it morally wrong? No.

Is it politically stupid? Probably.

Because it needlessly gives ammo (pardon the pun) to Democrats, to say this was a crass political statement.

And that is politically very stupid and unnecessary.

Isn’t there a single gun manufacturer in the district that could be the source for the raffle prize? Or at least, in the state?

I didn’t know that. Do they manufacture there?

Yes. This is their manufacturing facility.

It may also interest you to know that ArmaLite is also located in Geneseo, Illinois. They make those scarey black rifles.
