Cheyenne Marine Corps Vets Group Holding Gun Show
The Ed Herschler Detachment of the Marine Corps League veterans group is holding a gun show this weekend.
That's according to Dave Kliegel, the Chaplain and Veteran Assistance Coordinator for the local detachment. The gun show is slated to run until 5 p.m. today [June 23] at Forum 619 at 619 South Greeley Highway.
It will continue on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The event is to raise money for the group's Veteran's Assistance Programs
The group will be raffling off a new Mossberg Patriot Bolt Action .308 Winchester chambered-in rifle with a scope. Proceeds from that raffle will go to support veteran assistance programs which help vets from all branches of the military.
Other firearms will be raffled off as well, including a 30-30 rifle and a .410 gauge shotgun by Harrington and Richardson with those proceeds going to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.
