Next Shoot
21-22-23 October 2016

A twice a year, three day weekend of friends, weapons, targets and gear in Arizona's high, western desert. With a quarter mile long firing range, populated by hundreds of shooters, The Big Sandy is the largest machine-gun shoot in the United States. This NFA shooting range will test yourself, your weapon and your sights. Held in Northwestern Arizona, approximately 10 miles northeast of the town Wikieup, where you can get some distance on your targets. Some targets fly the length of the range at high speeds, some explode. If you're up to it, please come visit this uniquely American event.

Line Shooters, 3 days $250 (advance)
General Admission Spectator, 3 days $25
