GRINNELL, Iowa – Brownells and Smith & Wesson are teaming up to donate an M&P® M2.0™ Compact pistol in 9mm with a special "Lone Star" color scheme to the Lone Survivor Foundation in Houston, Texas.
The Dream Gun®, valued at $850 retail, will be raffled off by the Lone Survivor Foundation with the proceeds used to help military veterans adversely affected by Hurricane Harvey. Raffle tickets start at $20 each, and are available in different packages. Tickets sales began 12:00 AM CST on Veterans Day, November 11, and last through noon CST, December 11 at the Lone Survivor Foundation Page.
Emblazoned with the iconic colors of the Lone Star Texas flag, the gun's custom Cerakote finish was applied by Battle Arms Development. The M&P M2.0 Compact pistol is one of the newest members of the M&P M2.0 pistol platform, and was released by Smith & Wesson in September 2017.
"We are grateful for this chance to partner with Smith & Wesson to help support our veterans," said Brownells CEO Pete Brownell. "Somebody is going to win a very sharp-looking, custom M&P M2.0 Compact."
