Boise, Idaho -- At $52 a pop, a gun auction fundraiser has been a big money maker for the Columbia High School Wrestling Team and it's only their first year doing the raffle.

The guns are valued up to $2,300.

Parents that talked to television station KBOI at the tournament were supportive of the idea.

"There's a lot of hunters, my husband's a hunter. So he is hoping to win a couple guns," says raffle participant Perla Gleed.

"This is America and that's what America's about, being able to bare arms and all that," adds Rick Gleed. "So I am all for it and I don't think it's bad or portrays a bad image."

Others were curious about the procedures.

"I just wonder how they get around the background check," one onlooker says.

Raffle organizer Tyrel Harris says background checks will be done by Sportsman's Warehouse, and that the wrestling team is actually raffling off gift cards for specific gun amounts.

The winners can choose how to spend the money.
