Default Thanks to LaRue for huge CGF Donation!

Gene Hoffman reports a huge donation from Mark LaRue/LaRue Tactical has arrived via express today...

Mark had posted in the "Centerfire Rifles" forum, but I thought that thread was getting way too long and it's appropriate here anyway:





Whee!

We indeed all should thank Mark for his generosity. It's most deeply appreciated.

Y'all can thank Mark by buying one of his quality LaRue widgets.

This money - combined with other CGF fundraising - will help with any or all of the following:
  • keep a good guy out of the cooler on bogus gun charges
  • combined with above some "occupational therapy" for local DAs:
    keep 'em busy so gun charges are no longer slam-dunk;
  • drive - either solo, or partnering with other gun-rights/civil-rights
    organizations - aggressive, focused, intelligent RKBA cases whose
    CA focus nevertheless can have nationwide implications.

Thanks for thinking of this, Mark, but do please realize that - at least for now, for the size we are - the CGF has a very low 'overhead'....

All the CGF board members are more-than-reasoanbly employed and, so far, the Board members generally take care of their travel, phone and other similar expenses themselves. We'd rather spend less time on organizational trivia and reimbursement minutiae and instead be somewhat of a 'virtual' organization so we can spend our precious time on the actual attack.

Gene Hoffman has provided operations/business presence space. Note that a quite small percentage of funds has gone to some CGF legal setup costs and accounting matters (501(c)(3), etc.); the rest of CGF funds disbursed go to reasonable legal fees, research and related case support (filing/printing costs, yada yada yada). Funds may also be expended in educational campaigns (say, ads) when deemed necessary.

We also promise that our attacks will be thoughtful and intelligent: gunnies can't afford another Silviera + Gary Gorsky drama.

Mark, thanks again for the support. Perhaps you've seen the recent CGF + SAF attack on the "Safe Handgun Roster"; please expect subsequent attacks on other offensive aspects of CA gun laws in the very very near future...

Don't mean to ruffle feathers here (Yes, I own several LaRue mounts and products), but does that mean Mark will finally be willing to sell his lowers to California buyers?

I could always ask directly on the 10-8 forums but I think this venue is more appropriate.

Thanks for supporting the Second Amendment battle here in California.

Your commitment is amazingly generous and I don't see any restrictions on CA sales on your lower pages now. This is all very good.

I hope you find the calguns community as supportive of LaRue and as you have shown yourself to be of CalGuns.

Well, they just convinced me that I should get my next upper from them.

Barrel question: they say their barrels are stainless steel with polygonal rifling. I assume that means they must be hammer forged? That's a big thing for me because it seems like hammer forged barrels are easier to clean. And I like that it's stainless.

That was extremely generous … and very much needed. The front lines of the RKBA struggle are now moving to California.

More importantly, thank you CGF board members for all they do.

Thanks to Mark LaRue and his company from Northern California. You have certainly made many believers over the past couple days in the way of your generous donation. Again welcome to the Calguns community!

An extremely generous gesture by Mark LaRue and probably so unexpected. I've been holding off on my next AR build for LaRue products, starting with the upper and lower parts...that Stealth lower is awfully sexy.

I am now a LaRue supporter. Thanks Mark.

I myself just got off phone with Mark - and he knows there's a lotta good folk fighting here.

(I also tried to talk him into making chrome-lined 1/7" twist 18" SPR profile bbls, but was less successful in that endeavor...

I take back what I said about his company. He has earned my respect through his support for Calgunners. This is the way to do business, less talk and more action.

Thank you for the donation.
