The Porter County Sheriff’s Department donated a “Dillinger cartridge” to C.A.M.P. (Caring about Military Personnel) for their fundraiser in December.

The winning bidder, Mike Blink bought it for his dad, a history buff, and came to the Sheriff’s Department so his father could have his picture taken with the gun. Mike also had the winning bid on the digital camera with which he took these photos.

He is going to send the camera to a soldier serving overseas.

The machine gun was thoroughly checked for safety by all parties before handling.
