The City of Bowie Volunteer Fire Department hosted its first “30 Guns in 30 Minutes” event this past Saturday a unique fundraising idea in its first year. In the event one ticket out of the 300 limit sold was drawn every minute and that person won the next gun in line. The fire department also served up hamburgers and hot dogs during the open house and drawing. Larry and Lana Belcher of B & K Gun, Bowie, assisted with the mandated paperwork.
