Mcpd Rifle Raffle
Posted by Doug Colombik (+55) 6 years ago
The Miles City Police Department will be holding a rifle raffle in an effort to purchase new less-lethal weapons. There will be two rifles raffled:

1. .338 Lapua Mag with Sightron 8-32x56mm scope and Pelican Storm case. This rifle with scope and case cost over $6,000 new and has only been fired a few times.

2. .223 Colt M4 Patrol rifle. This is a new rifle.

The drawing will be held at the City Council Meeting on October 13, 2015 at City Hall. Need not be present to win. Tickets are $25 each or 2 for $40. Tickets are available at the Police Department located at the VA or at the Dispatch Center. More information is available on the MCPD Facebook page.

There is more than a little irony here. A law enforcement agency raffling an assault rifle and a sniper rifle. I hope it doesn't backfire on them....Literally

I'd say this is a clear cut case of knowing your audience.

An assault rifle is a selective fire rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine.[1][2][3][4][5] Assault rifles were first used during World War II and by the end of the 20th century had become the standard service rifle for most of the world's armies. Examples include the StG 44, AK-47 and the M16 rifle.
