To be fair that car's worth at least $8 600 in parts.

I see a couple of issues.

1. The value of used stuff is subjective. Some people have a reasonable assessment of their stuff while others think their crap is worth twice retail because they R-hopped it.

2. To easy to scam. (Not saying you'd do this but it's possible) You sell 39 tickets to total strangers and 1 to a friend. WOW WHAT A SURPRISE!!!! when your friend wins and you split the profit with him.

3. It's being crapped on in this thread. Nobody that reads this thread will buy a ticket. (If they do, we'll point and laugh when they come up with nothing.)

Hope you wanted honesty and not just for me to do a fanboy "THAT"S A GREAT IDEA!!!!!"

Comments Like this will 100% of the time tell me not to deal with a seller.

"Don't have time for pictures so take a peek elsewhere, I won't be sending any pics either... not for this price"

It screams Lazy, And this also tells me that Gear will not be maintained.

My only other concern would be that you've been selling your gear since July 2012. ( I come to this conclusion be cause your last post in something other than a sales thread is June 2012)

If after 2 years you have been unable to unload whatever you now wish to raffle I would have to assume it's either crap or over valued.

Instead of a "lotto" which right out of the gate sounds sketchy as all hell. Get a few of your trusted airsoft friends together. Sit down with your items and get a consensus of value for each item. Post up sales threads and be rid of it.
P.S. Pics will always help a sales thread. Laziness on pics will almost certainly cost you a sale.

I got $40, can I just have the $4000 worth of stuff.


basically if its not a Retailer doing a raffle to help raise funds for a charity or special cause, most people would not dish out funds for a raffle like this.
