Wiley Clapp Colt Flash Raffle

Congratulations to James D. from Ridgecrest, CA!
James had ticket number 484 and is the winner of the Wiley Clapp Colt.

Since the very first Heinie Signature Competition raffle about 3 years ago, Kara’s HoPE has conducted a series of fundraising raffles, featuring collectible and rare firearms, in order to fulfill their mission to help families with terminally ill children. Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a congenital brain disorder which is unpredictable and incurable. Many families struggle to meet the expenses related to medical care, transportation, and sometimes just basic household needs. Kara’s HoPE helps with these unmet needs, and your support is critical to the continuation of their mission.

For our August Flash Raffle, Kara’s HoPE is once again pleased to bring you the opportunity to win a limited production Colt, Lightweight Commander/ TALO Distributors, “Wiley Clapp .45 acp.
This particular Colt was designed with extensive input from noted gun writer, Wiley Clapp. Starting with a “no frills” approach, this collaborative effort has yielded an effective defensive weapon which is loaded with useful features, but not overloaded with “gadgets” which are not focused on defensive carry.

Starting with the Novak rear and  gold-bead front sight, and ending with the “tactical oval” profile grips, this handgun provides a perfect balance between a lightweight carry gun and a match target pistol. Superbly executed grip checkering, forward serrations for press checking, a match grade barrel and bushing, and a fitted grip safety, provide a shooter with everything they need, and nothing they don’t.

The Wiley Clapp Lightweight Commander retails for approximately $1,500 and you could make it yours! For just $10 per ticket, and only through the 14th, you have the opportunity to add this pony to your stable, if your ticket is randomly drawn as the winner! Hurry, because this flash raffle is only on for one week!
Because of our industry partners, and people just like you, we’re able to help these children and their families. Won’t you please consider partnering with us too? Approximately 90% of your contributions have a direct impact on the lives of affected children nationwide.
