2013 Volunteer Hunter Education Instructor Workshop

Request from Bob Mayer

The following is from Bob Mayer, past busniess manager of IHEA.  You may be interested in what he has to offer and can help.  John E. Sturgis, Hunting Heritage Coordinator 


Some of you may remember me as Business Manager of IHEA.  Presently, I buy and sell firearms, and in this capacity I have a customer that needs approximately 1300 rifles (Specs to follow) delivered on or before 10 December 2013.
This is my proposal.  If you will contact your hunter ed instructors and ask them to call all the local gun shops for this particular rifle.  I will pay 5% of the purchase price of these rifles back to the instructor that found the rifle and contacted me. Please remember that the price, at which I purchase the rifle, will probably be closer to whole sale then retail.  5% will probably be around $15 to $20
If an instructor finds this particular rifle, have them put the rifle(s) on hold, then contact me at 970-631-4133 or by e-mail co-ag-inc@msn.com with the name of the gun shop, a telephone number, and I will follow up with the purchase.  
The following is what I need and the SKU numbers must match one of the two below.
New or possibly used, if in excellent condition.
Mossberg 464, Lever action 30-30.  SKU # 41010 or 41011
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me.
Thank you very much,
Bob Mayer
