Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) has proudly donated to the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF), an organization dedicated to educating youth about the shooting sports. Ruger’s $30,000 donation was raised through auctions on GunBroker.com between September and December, 2021.
Since 2010, Ruger has been working with the popular firearms auction website GunBroker.com to auction off rare, unusual, discontinued or one-of-a-kind Ruger® firearms. All proceeds from these auctions are donated to various charities, with over $820,000 raised and donated in total over the last decade.
“We are proud to be able to support the SSSF in its mission of educating young folks all across America about the shooting sports,” said Ruger President and CEO, Chris Killoy. “These auctions are a creative way for us to support important organizations in our industry while also sharing one-of-a-kind Ruger firearms with our loyal customers.”
Some rare firearms that were sold to benefit the SSSF were a Ruger Vaquero® revolver featuring a hand-engraved western scroll design and a Hawkeye® Predator rifle previously owned by former Ruger CEO, Mike Fifer, who took the rifle on a hunt in Greenland with his daughter in 2011.
