Southside Guns and Ammo and Sharpshooter St. Louis have donated an AR-15 Rifle and full membership for a raffle to benefit a terminally ill Police Officer.

Southside Guns, St. Louis' gun store, donated an AR-15 rifle in the recent fundraiser for a terminally-ill former St. Louis Homicide detective.  The rifle was used in conjunction with a range membership to raise funds for the former officer, who is suffering from terminal brain cancer.  The AR-15 is a lightweight, 5.56 mm/.223-caliber, magazine-fed, air cooled rifle with a rotating-lock bolt, actuated by direct impingement gas operation or long/short stroke piston operation. It has been produced in many different versions, including numerous semi-automatic and selective fire variants. It is manufactured with extensive use of aluminum alloys and synthetic materials.

The weapon, which was also linked with a membership to Sharpshooter St. Louis, the St. Louis area's biggest indoor shooting range, raised over $10,000 toward the treatment and care of the officer, something that made Southside and Sharpshooters very proud to be a part of the event.  Those looking for memberships can choose between 2 different packages:
