Keegan Wilder Auction #5 Mossberg model 702 .22lr rifle and ammo
« on: December 26, 2017, 05:04:42 PM »
We are rolling out auction #5 for Keegan.  Keep on pulling together for this kid and his family and let's do what we can to lighten their load a little.

If you haven't heard Keegan's story, here is a bit of background from Karl Blanchard

 "Keegan Wilder is not your typical 7th grader.  He's a hardened mountain mule deer hunter.  Though he's a little small in stature,  he has the heart of a lion and is just as fierce!  He had been feeling a faint pain for a few months but nothing that would have caused concern.  Almost felt like a pulled muscle.  He asked to be taken into the urgent care because he was having a hard time breathing without any pain.  He was immediately referred to Seattle Children's where the family was given the devasting news after several blood tests, xray, and ultrasounds that he indeed had cancer.  The mass is quite large behind his rib cage growing towards his lung.  He had surgery within one day where they biopsied the mass to determine the exact kind of cancer (so they know what appropriate treatment to provide for that type of cancer) and also placed a port for his chemotherapy.

He recently had to have his port moved which involved a second surgery.  He is having a difficult time keeping weight on so a feeding tube has been placed to help him get the calories he needs. 

Keegan is the toughest kid you will ever meet.  From the age of 5 he has been chasing his dad and I into some of the toughest mule deer country the west has to offer.  His first deer at age 10 was over 7 miles into the Idaho backcountry.  Even though he is on round 5 of chemo and very weak, he is always smiling. 

Keegan and family still have a tough road ahead of them and can use our support.  Life can be so cruel and no child should ever have to go through what Keegan has.  Let's help make this dark time a little brighter."

Auction #5 was donated by 2 HuntWa members. Dan-O donated the Mossberg 702. Itís as new and unfired.  JKeen33 has donated 650 rounds of ammo to go with the rifle.
The rifle MUST be transferred through an FFL and Dan-O says he'll cover the cost of that too.

Let's start the bidding now and run it through Thursday at noon.
Winning bidder ID'd my time stamp and payment will be made to Karl Blanchard by paypal or by a check in the mail. Any questions, feel free to PM me.

Thank you all and happy bidding!!





Hereís the rifle and ammo.

I should add that this is a very special rifle for two reasons:
1.  Many of you are aware of Safari grade* rifles that come with hand selected walnut stocks.  Well, I hand selected this injection molded plastic stock.    It has terrific consistency of color (black).
2.  This rifle is rare.   They only made 1 of this model in this serial number.    You can't get more rare than that.

With this additional information, I hope you're able to bid with confidence!

Dan

P.S.  Praying for Keegan and family.

And that's not 650 rounds of some mundane caliber like 30-06.   This is genuine .22 Long Rifle ammo.   
Do I need to remind you how impossible this stuff was to get (please disregard the fact that store shelves are now fully stocked with it).

The struggle WAS real. Now it's a walk in the park to find it...but that doesn't detract from the hoarder induced value of it.
