“Our attendees are going to have a blast. The types of machine guns on the line and the experience of seeing these weapons in action all in one weekend is unheard of anywhere else in the Northeast,” said Bob Raimo, owner of the Shooter’s Gauntlet. “We can’t wait for attendees and exhibitors to get here in June, see all of the upgrades we’ve made to the facility, and have an incredible time.”
The Northeast’s most unique shooting events venue has been completely upgraded and expanded since the inaugural shoot last spring, with larger machine gun and suppressor ranges, a newly covered gun show area, and shooting activities unlike anywhere else, including an assault hike, hand gun zip line, an ‘inversion diversion’ for shooting steel while upside down, and more.
The Stone Mountain Machine Gun Shoot is co-hosted by the Shooter’s Gauntlet, a one-of-a-kind, 1,000-acre facility located in the endless mountains of Northern Pennsylvania, and the Firearms Industry Consulting Group, a Division of Prince Law Offices, P.C.
