The Veteran Paratroopers hosted the annual Erin Doyle Memorial Poker Run last week. We have been supporters since day one and again this year we made a donation to their silent auction. I missed the event due to work however I hear the event was a success. The bottom photo shows the package we put in. An SKS rifle, full case of ammo and of course some swag with our logo on it.
Erin Doyle was killed in the line of duty and you can learn more about the story in the news article linked here CLICK HERE
Hats off to the organizers for another job well done.
The August Premiere Firearms Auction was great and working with Jim, Linda and the rest of the team from Bud Haynes Auctions continues to be a pleasure. I have not had much opportunity to go shooting this year but I do get my “fix” being able to handle the varied and interesting firearms that cross the block.
During the cataloguing of the August sale we had to call on help from the firearms community for some expert advice. On one occasion Bill came to help and by pure coincidence Bill was the winner of our door prize on sale day. It’s been something of a tradition to have a door prize at the firearms auctions and this being the 50th anniversary of Bud Haynes Auctions we gave away a Henry Golden Boy.
Last weeks Firearms Auction was a blast, I mean it really hit the mark <giggle giggle>. We gave away a brand new Henry lever action rifle and some swag to one attendee. Left to right is yours truly, our very grateful winner, Linda and Jim Baggaley from Bud Haynes & Co Auctioneers in Red Deer.
Jim and Linda from Bud Haynes Auctions are in Calgary this weekend, March 25th and 26th for Canada’s largest gun show. It’s being held at the BMO Center. Stop by and say hi. They are shaking hands and kissing babies so take the whole family.
Today was overall a very busy day. Jayne did cataloging for the March 13th auction, Mike was working on tech mostly and I was all over the map. The last thing and did before hiding in my office to work on an offer for a condo I have listed was unpack this great consignment. Fifteen hand guns, all new or like new condition and only two are 12-6 Prohib. Fav
This petition is specifically related to the closure of the Spruce Grove Gun Range, however, as I mentioned in a previous posting this is a property rights issue that effects everyone. Please take the time to investigate, sign and share. Thanks
Let this be a lesson to all firearms handlers/buyers/sellers. Treat all firearms as if they are loaded. Even if they aren’t. ESPECIALLY if they aren’t.
Actually especially if they are too. Just all the time.
This gun came in for auction with a live round. Fortunately we double check the firearms when they come in but it’s never fun to actually find anything. At least if Zombies busted in right then, we’d be ready.
