COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (September 27, 2018)
In the all-out push to achieve 2020 vision, the USA Shooting Team is partnering with Gunbroker.com and the nation’s top gun manufacturers to support America’s shooting team with a 20 for ’20 gun fundraiser. The collaboration will create 20 monthly gun auctions beginning Sunday, September 30 to help push U.S. athletes to victory in the shooting sports.
Hosting each of the monthly auctions will be long-time USA Shooting Team partner Gunbroker.com, the world’s largest marketplace for firearms, parts and accessories and the foremost gun auction site available today. Guns for the program will be provided by America’s top firearm manufacturers including team sponsors Kimber and Beretta as well as cooperative support from companies like GLOCK, Sig Sauer, Henry Repeating Arms, Tactical Solutions, Ruger and Remington with more still to come.
Perhaps there’s no better way to kick-off this valuable fundraiser than a showcase gun that, like USA Shooting Team athletes, embodies patriotism and pride. USA’s Shooting October gun of the month is The God Bless America lever action .22 caliber rifle courtesy of long-time team supporter Henry Repeating Arms and their widely-popular Patriot Series line of rifles released earlier this year.
USA Shooting’s Pistol Ad Hoc Committee, made up of key shooting industry executives and business leads, is doing their part to support our athletes in need. The auction will include several firearms with the specific purpose of raising much needed money for a USA Shooting program that is currently absent key funding from the U.S. Olympic Committee due to a lack of medal production in recent years.
