Hey guys... I hate to ask. Really I do.

But you know me, or most of you do. I am Amanda Suffecool - Daughter of longtime ruger collector and forum member Bob Campbell

I host a local to Ohio Q&A Radio Show along with my brother Rob Campbell. We have been doing it on FM talk station - self funded for 8 years. So that means that we have worked, donated, and created a 501c3 that does public work in firearms education, all with an eye on funding the Radio Show - on a public station. on a station that has lots of traffic. Let me be very open here - It has cost us $20,000 per year to do this. That is what we pay the radio station for the time. We can offset this - and have - by selling adds. ( ... and this takes time) by hosting programs where companys support - a 2x win, people learn about guns, and we earn some money towards the radio show. by hosting the PreppersBall gun raffle and education day each year... as a 501c3 we can raise money with raffles... so we have this down pat. We have a -squeek- budget that gets us in the clear each year. AND Rob and I donate all the time to it. 8 years, 5 hours a week for the Radio plus all the time to raise money. Not saying this to say - look at me. but instead to show that I have done all that is physically possible to get to this point.

ANYWAY... we have a HUGE opportunity. Salem Radio Network ( The same network that has Armed American Radio ) has approved us for Syndication. THIS IS BIG. and it has the potential - read that as POTENTIAL- to make the radio show self supporting.

But to do it - we need to cover the first 6 months of Syndication. That gives us breathing room and the ability to grow stations, and get data , so that we can then get advertisers.

This is the century of Women and Guns. Our show fits that niche... and we do it in a generally fun way. Not a male bashing, look at me way. But an all inclusive way. Here is a sample of the show as it is currently.

We need to raise $6000.00 - So far I have about $1200 promised. There is still a big gap that needs to be covered.

as to the other pro gun stuff that I have been doing to support and promote the second amendment...
I wrote a book and helped the NRA produce their concealed carry fashion shows at the CarryGuard EXPO
it is written to help gun groups across the country use a CCW fashion show as a fund raiser for their organization

I spoke on the steps of the supreme court - on the 10th anniversay of the Heller vs DC decision. I was asked - as one of 10 speakers across the country to come and speak.
I hosted and emcee'd a rally on the US Capital Lawn as part of the DC Project - 50 women from 50 states that are talking guns on the hill. I represent Ohio.

and there is more... but really, I am asking if you have a spare dollar or two, want to help a forum member who is working hard to support a sport and a way of life that you LOVE. Please help.
Thanks - Amanda

Amanda,,, you can count on me & Miss Penny. We'll be sending you something.

You go girl! We NEED things like this to fight for our rights, and to show the anti-s we are not a bunch of radical anti-American types. We are just true Americans who believe in the Constitution!

Congratulations Amanda,

As I am a dude, I will have to ask you to contact this group of woman gun owners here in MA. They recently ran into, what looked like, political last minute postponement and then moving of a concealed carry fashion show. I passed on your name and organization so you may have already touched base. I think they may be a very sympathetic ear and they do work well with MA Gun Owners Action League or GOAL. That, I am a part of. http://goal.org/ I will talk to some of the people there.

Here is there site restricted to females: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MAWomenGunOwners/

I should be able to put something small in the mail for you.

Thank you for continuing the fight.

Matt - funny that. I was brought to Mass in May to participate in the Series Seminars that the group was hosting. I have worked with Mandy Deveno on this. She is the gal who produced the fashion show - she got my book and called me several times. Then I was blessed with the ability to be an RSO for Jon Green from GOAL as they taught a sunday class - before tossing me back on a plane to hit home in time for Radio... It was a fun and full weekend.

On the canceled fashion show - they held it several weeks later, and the Bass Pro shop that was the original host, made a donation that financially made them whole. The Bass Pro shop was in a tough spot, their land lord is wickedly antigun, and their lease was in jeopardy - and they tried to take a path that worked best for all. Sad but part of our current reality. Protesters in front of the store - protesting the fashion show - gave them negative press that they did not need.

Amanda,

I was hoping you all got together. They, GOAL and MAWGO, are the salt of the earth. The night we got the news the show was "postponed" I shared your info with them and sent you an email through your web site. The show was cancelled on WEDS for FRI. Very many of us here are not happy with a check to cover expenses. For those that had plans for babysitters, travel plans, show volunteers and other costs; only the organizations were made whole and not the consumers/supporters.

I hope you enjoyed it enough to make it an annual event up here. Keep up the good fight.

Matt
