For $20, win an Auto-Ordnance Victory Girls 1911 and support the DC Project, where women from every state travel to Washington, D.C. to speak to legislators on behalf of our 2nd Amendment rights
The DC Project is a nonpartisan initiative that gathers 50 women, one from every state, to Washington, D.C., to meet their legislators and share the stories of 2nd Amendment Supporters. Their goal is to open a respectful discourse with their elected officials, and they are focused on firearms safety and education.
“The DC Project is important because it provides us to the opportunity to get face to face with our representatives to share our stories and explain why it is so important to protect the 2nd Amendment,” said 3GN’s Tennille Chidester, a DC Project representative. “Probably the most compelling aspect of the DC Project is that we are all women. We aren’t the “traditional” gun owner, often stereotyped as old white males. We are single and married, we are mothers, wives, sisters, business women and homemakers. We are comprised of a variety of races, income levels, religions. These differences are what make the DC Project so powerful and so important. Together, our voices can’t be ignored.”
This purchase buys ONE RAFFLE TICKET – Victory can be yours! Win this beautiful custom 1911 . Winner must be at least 21 years old and legally authorized to purchase and own handguns. Firearm will be transferred from the manufacturer directly to the winner via a fully licensed FFL.

While everyone should be excited about the opportunity to win a unique pistol from Auto-Ordnance, the greater purpose is engaging 50 women in the legislative process and giving our lawmakers a different face for the firearms community, a powerful voice that will hopefully further protect our gun rights.
“This will be my first experience with the DC Project,” Chidester said. “While I have always been a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment, I have never had much interest in politics and never really considered being a “voice” for any cause. As the political climate shifts, I see how important it is, not only to stand for your beliefs, but more importantly to take action to ensure our rights are not jeopardized. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences and education with my representatives and hopefully provide another viewpoint on what a responsible gun owner is. I hope for the opportunity to open a line of communication with those who do not support the 2nd amendment and possibly help them to better understand our concerns. I can’t go without mentioning that many of the women who are part of the DC Project are truly outstanding as both individuals and representatives for the 2nd Amendment. I hope to be able to learn from them how to be efficient and effective in the quest to protect our rights.”
