The ITS Tactical crew will be attending the Warrior Appreciation Night on the third evening of SHOT Show in Las Vegas, NV and we’d like to take a few minutes to tell you about what it is and how you can get a chance to win some fantastic prizes through their raffle presented by USPSA.
The Warrior Appreciation Night is in it’s sixth year and presented by the American Legion as an event to honor all veterans, past, present and future.
“The Warrior Appreciation Night is a great way to acknowledge and honor our heroes – those who have served and those currently serving to protect our nation and the communities where we live.” Daniel S. Wheeler, national adjutant of The American Legion.
If you would like to attend, tickets for civilians are $20 while veterans and law enforcement can get in for free with a valid ID. Be sure to visit the site for details though as it will be best to set up your tickets in advance if you are a veteran or LEO.
While not everyone will be lucky enough to visit this event in person, you can still make a difference by donating to some great causes and taking part in the online raffle. You have the ability to choose what organization you’re donating towards and each has a specific set of awesome items up for grabs. There are nearly $30,000 worth of firearms and accessories available and tickets are just $10 each.
Note: Each of these raffles contains more than just the firearms. Cases, ammo, optics, training packages, and hearing protection are just some of the extras you’ll receive if you win.

You are not required to be present to win and the drawing will take place on January 16th at 4:30 PM PST. The age limit for this raffle is 21 years old and you have to make sure you are legally allowed to possess the firearm you intend to win. If you are a winner, you are also responsible for the FFL transfer.
While there are some very worthy charities on the list, the one that’s near and dear to our hearts here at ITS is America’s Mighty Warriors, who we donate the proceeds of our 5.1.11 morale patch to. America’s Mighty Warriors was founded to help our military, their families and those that have fallen through their loss and we are proud to help in any way that we can.
We strongly encourage you donate to any of the above organizations. Your contribution truly makes a difference in the lives of so many. If you aren’t able to donate at this time, please always keep our veterans and those serving our country in your thoughts.
