AR-15 golf tournament aims to raise money for firefighting equipment in Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Pierce Fire Department is skipping pancake feeds and chili cookoffs as it looks to raise funds.
Instead, it’s organizing a golf tournament where participants will trade in traditional clubs for an AR-15.
Officials say all proceeds will go toward purchasing firefighting equipment.
In AR-15 golf, a tube is attached to the end of the barrel, and a golf ball is placed in the tube.
You fire the gun, which is loaded with blanks, sending the ball toward the hole.
The cost of $450 for a team of two includes nine holes at the Pierce Community Golf Course on May 6.
Rifles, balls and blanks will all be provided.
Pierce Fire says you also need to meet all federal requirements to be eligible for the prize, which is a Henry Firefighter Tribute Rifle.
