Below is a news release regarding a donation to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Shoot Like A Girl, an organization dedicated to growing the number of women who participate in shooting sports by empowering them with confidence, donated a special 30th anniversary edition Glock pistol to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. It will be auctioned off to raise funds for RMEF’s conservation mission.
“It is an honor to be selected to receive this rare firearm and we are equally honored to donate it to the RMEF,” said Karen Butler, Shoot Like A Girl founder and president. “Our history as an organization links back to RMEF and we believe in its mission as much today as we did back then.”
Glock is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its entry into the U.S. market by presenting 30 uniquely hand-engraved pistols to organizations and individuals that made significant contributions to its success. Each of the G17s includes a limited production serial number and a certificate of authenticity signed by Gaston Glock.
The pistol donated to RMEF is #7 of 30. It is an American-made G17 Gen4.
“We are grateful to Karen and the good people of Shoot Like A Girl for this donation. We appreciate their support and are excited to use its proceeds to help ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing.
The pistol will be auctioned off at a RMEF brunch event on November 4, 2016, at the PBR World Finals in Las Vegas.
