Association field representative Marc Steinke said the gun was purchased by the committee to be auctioned to help raise money for medical bills for Cody Buffalo. Buffalo is Rundell’s first born grandson.
The 23-year-old is battling Hotchkins lymphoma cancer and will have to undergo a bone marrow transplant in early June in Denver.
In the end, the gun netted nearly $5,000. An additional $500 was donated outside the auction after the crowd passed a hat.
I am often extremely proud to be part of the shooting sports, and this is one of those moments.
