Some pics from the Friends of the NRA a couple weeks ago.
It was at the MCBH Enlisted Club again like last year. Nearly sold out with about 300 attendees. HS air rifle teams, politicians, firearms business owners, club officers, and 2a supporters.
Funds from the event go towards Junior shooting programs, range development, and firearms safety programs
The event is run by the Friends of the NRA and junior shooting team volunteers.
The "Wall of Guns" is always a popular event. They cut a deck of playing cards in half and give you half, and throw the other half into a bucket drawing. Winners get to choose a gun from the wall. You also get to chat with these two happy volunteers.
The "Red Bucket" drawing. You get red tickets if you buy a set of raffle books. 5 winners got to take a gun home.
And the higher level "Gold Bucket" drawing.
Live auction items
More live auction stuff. Someone took home a Cowboy set with a bullwhip for $350. Also a fiddle from some famous singer, not sure who it was.
Big item for the night was the Cobalt Kinetics rifle, a $2,500 rifle won for $1,600. Donated by Security Equipment Corp.
Raffle drawings and FNRA Banquet achievement banners. Hawaii seems to have the most successful program in the nation.
Rep Sam Kong attended his first FNRA banquet, my rep and 2a supporter from Aiea.
Lots of Air Rifles awarded to the kids.
A gaggle of of 2a supporters.
All of the items for auction and raffle were donated by local and mainland businesses and clubs. Give them your support.
