Columbia City business owner Jeff Ott of Precision Arms of Indiana, Inc. recently donated a limited edition gun valued at several hundred dollars to the Whitley County Historical Society for the society’s use in fundraising efforts. A drawing was conducted, with tickets limited in number to just 100 — and all of which were sold within a matter of days, raising $2000 for the Whitley County Historical Society.
Local business owner Chad Moore’s name was randomly selected from all names entered in the drawing — making him the gleeful recipient of the showpiece firearm. Pending completion of necessary paperwork and registration, the gun was recently presented to Moore featuring engraved images of Whitley County history and Indiana history. Moore’s name will also be inscribed in the gun’s body as well.
