For the better part of a decade Crye Precision has held a charity auction open to all SHOT Show attendees, and this year is no different. This time around the auction is online, but you bid on items via iPads located in and around the Crye Precision booth.


Items to be won run the gamut from high end rifles, longboards, helmets, and one of the main stars of the show: a custom MultiCam Ronin motorcycle. As the name would imply, all proceeds go directly to charitable organizations.


This year it will be split evenly between the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the Unit Scholarship Fund, and the Navy SEAL Foundation. Each year they've raised between $70,000 and $90,000. Here's what Crye had to say about it:

Crye is indebted to all these guys for their input towards our product development and for their sacrifices, and this is one of the ways we can give back to them.

Another way Crye Precision is raising funds for these organizations is via their Hot Shots calendar. For a suggested donation of $20 you can pick up one for yourself and have it signed by some of the models.

To participate, head down to Crye Precision's booth, #32403. Or you can directly donate to the charitable organizations by following the links below:

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
