It's Time To Help Out One Of Our Own

I'm a little late getting this up but I hope you will respond generously. If you read gun blogs for more than a day, you know Tam of The View From The Porch blog. She is, as JayG called her recently, the Snark Mistress.

She is all that and more. She also, as she revealed on Friday, has cancer. Tam has a basal cell carcinoma on her nose that will need to be removed. Fortunately, it is very treatable. The downside is that Tam does not have health insurance. I don't care what form of cancer you have but when the docs utter the "C word" the price just went up.

You can help Tam out by making a donation to the tip jar on her blog. I really hope you will be generous.

To help encourage you to make a donation, a number of bloggers have come together to organize raffles to benefit Tam.

 OldNFO has donated a Colt Diamondback in .38 Special that has just been worked over by Cylinder & Slide as a prize. Michael Hast of The Holster Site will be donating a custom holster of your choice to go with it. You can enter that raffle by following the instructions at the link.

Dennis from DragonWorks leather is having another raffle for Tam and the prize is one of his Viper Holsters.

JayG of MArooned is coordinating links to all the raffles and Jennifer is acting as the raffle coordinator. If you have something you might want to donate to the raffle, contact JayG at the link to his blog.

I would again urge you to be generous. Regardless of the form, cancer is a nasty thing.


  1. Fuck the raffle.

    Gave her the bucks.

    Some people deserve it. She qualifies.

  2. Thank you for helping to spread the word
