WOW! Check Out Ruger's Project Valour-IT Auctions!

We have been highlighting the auctions of special firearms from the Ruger Vaults for many weeks now, and it is exciting to see the serious cash being donated by Ruger to Project Valour-IT. Last week the hammer fell on a special 10/22, and the selling price was $4400! Expect to see some serious money again this week when a Ruger No. 1 rifle sells that was made during Ruger's fiftieth year.  This rifle is engraved, and decorated with 24 karat gold inlay, and is chambered in .45-70.  This is a very special rifle that could be used for hunting the largest animals on this continent, but it will probably be locked away in a safe as part of a collection.  As of Monday night, the bid was up to $2225, and it will probably make significant jumps on Wednesday morning.  The hammer falls at 12:30 PM, Wednesday, December 12.  If you can afford it, make a bid!  All of the funds from these sales go to Project Valour-IT, to purchase voice activated computers for wounded service personnel.

If you can't afford to jump in on Ruger's auctions, you can still help our wounded soldiers by going to Project Valour-IT's website and making a donation.
