Kilted Pic, Day 28

This one's specifically for Dave H.

Coming from the Day 26 pic, where Dave made this challenge:
Tell you what. You re-do the photo with an American rifle in thirty-by-God caliber (M1 Garand would be ideal, but an M1 Carbine, a Springfield M1903, or heck, I'll even settle for an AR-10) and I'll drop at least another $50 in the kitty.
We discussed in comments, and he agreed that a .30-30 lever action Marlin was acceptable, so there it is...

I tried to maintain the spirit of the original "Wolverines!" picture with an old camo jacket I had from the paintball days and my Jayne hat (Sorry folks, I don't have a coonskin cap like the original). Hope this is everything you were looking for, Dave!

We had a wild day yesterday with ups and downs (but, overall, way more ups than downs, so it's all good and then some). As of the latest KTKC fundraising update, less than $200 separates Team JayG from Team Borepatch, so this one is going down to the wire. He's got Brigid's awesome Book of Barkley as an incentive to donate to his team; however, I have this:
From the last update, we are within easy striking distance of $10,000. I'd like to engage in a little historical perspective, for a moment... Last year, I raised $3,946, and KTKC's total was $13,847. For 2012, I raised $6,525, and KTKC's total was $22,475.55. In 2011, the year that started it all, I raised $2,417.50, and the KTKC total was $8114.50. I can live with lower totals for me, as we've had far more teams join up and the donor pool is static - and the more folks we have raising money, the more awareness we raise at the same time. 

I would, however, like to see us raise more money this year than last (bold numbers) - so let's crank up the gas for these last three days...
If this appeals to you, *and* you want to support a great cause, *AND* you want some of that sweet, sweet, tax-deductible goodness, and you want Team JayG to triumph over the upstart Team Borepatch, here's what you need to do:
  • Click an amount, or add in a custom amount, then check the box next to "This donation is made as part of a Fundraising Team". 
  • You'll see "Fundraising Team:" and a drop-down box. Pull up "Team JayG".
Three days left (including today) and anything can happen
That is all.

Thank you Jay. The hat nets you another $25. I think even Jayne would be proud of you.

And for anyone who's on the fence about contributing, take a chance at some of those prizes! Your odds are better than you may realize. Since I won in Jay's raffle last year I'm sitting this one out. So step right up! Don't let the guy's looks scare you. He's really a sweetheart as long as you don't stare at his hat.
