We felt it important to let the membership know what we have planned for 2006. First from all of us at LTW 2005 was a huge success because of you. We organize and build the guns but the members and customers are the ones who make this work. 2005 was a huge success, 2006 is only going to be better.
After alot of consideration we have decided that we will concentrate our efforts on one charity this year. This will be Isabella de Bethencourt Memorial Cops for Kids Jimmy Fund/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. We have teamed up with these folks in order to raise money for children who have been tragically diagnosed with various forms of cancer. When LTW started the entire mission was to support those less fortunate than ourselves....specifically children.
For further details please follow this link.
After several talks with David Kenik the President of Cops for Kids the fit between them and LTW was a natural. There will be a number of sponsorship programs in this endeavor and alot of cooperation from the law enforcement and shooting community.
The gun! All of the LTW smiths will contribute to this build in one form or another. This LTW Signature gun will be on a new roll mark stainless Series 80 Colt pistol. Not to give away all the details but a full custom folding knife by the knifemakers at http://www.customknivesandguns.com
will accompany the gun. This will be the most comprehensive package we have done.
Additional items are being created and planned for subsequent winners. The proceeds of this raffle will go directly to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to help these children.
There will be two LTW Team guns this year. The teams have been decided on but I will let the pictures do the talking on those. Two other "special projects" are going to happen this year but again, I won't spoil the surprise. Either way we have alot ahead of us and this will pretty much tap our project efforts this year.
Again, from all of us..........Cheers to a new year and THANK YOU, for all the support.
