Firefighters, police and civilians joined together Saturday for competitive gun fire, all for charity.
Friendly gunfire at Stuckenoff’s Shooting Complex was all for the annual Smoke and Guns Charity Shoot.
Organized by the Powder River Armory, there were shooters of all kinds who came out for the cause.
Cameron Siplon told News 13’s Bobby Poitevint, “There’s a lot of these people who really want to be supportive their community. Obviously it’s something fun to do. If you can make something people enjoy doing to a good charity, I think it’s a great connection and these people just want to help and it’s a chance for use to come out and have fun and compete."
Saturday's shooting event was made to be interactive for participants.
Each shooter followed the course with various shooting stations and targets outlined.
Siplon said donated prizes were available for the best shooters.
"Magazines, gun accessories, I believe there is even donated custom set of hearing protection, gun cases and a lot of fire arm accessories."
Tiffany Elhart commented, “Oh yes it’s a very good cause and we're all very happy to be a part of that cause and we get to shoot with some old friends and in the process we get to meet some new friends and then help out the organization."
Elhart added, “Here for the Healing Waters Flying Fishing. So it’s always a good day to come out and have some fun with your friends but help an organization in the process."
All proceeds from the event help Project Healing Waters.
Project Healing Waters is a non-profit organization helping disabled veterans through physical and emotional rehabilitation.
