Founded in 2008, the Big Hearts under the Big Sky (BHUBS) is a charitable organization that works in partnership with Montana Outfitters and Guides Association. Their mission is to provide a Montana outdoor adventure to US servicemen and women, children with life-threatening illnesses, and women fighting breast cancer.
Providing hunting and other outdoor experiences to qualified candidates requires a group effort. BHUBS has teamed up with other charitable organizations to help them achieve their mission. Four national charities have also stepped up; Catch-a-Dream Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Casting for Recovery, and Hunt of a Lifetime.
The donation from Auto Ordnance is in keeping with the theme that parent company, Kahr Arms, started several years ago, to demonstrate their patriotic pride in our US troops as well as other Americans who are fighting life-threatening personal battles here at home.
The Thompson 1927A-1 is the time-honored original "Tommy Gun" reproduced in a more modern version semi-auto. The frame and receiver are machined from solid steel or aluminum and the wood is genuine American walnut. The .45 caliber carbine features a 16-1/2" finned barrel, and the donated model includes a 30 rd stick magazine and a 50 rd drum magazine for the true Tommy Gun experience. BHUBS plans to put the Thompson 1927A-1 up for auction at an upcoming fundraising event in April.
