The 2017 Northern Rockies Machinegun & Cannon Shoot will be a load of fun for anyone who loves high powered weapons and exploding targets!!

The event is a benefit for the Casper Mountain Volunteer Fire Department and is open to all ages.  It all takes place on a ranch just outside of Casper (directions are below) and is sponsored by the Wyoming NFA Shooters Club.

If you've ever wanted to shoot machine guns or fire a cannon at targets, here's your chance!  The event features machinegun rentals, shoot radio controlled airplane targets and even dynamite reactive targets.  Plus this year you can even get up close to and even shoot a real tank!!

The schedule of events gets underway on Friday morning when the gates open at 8am and the firing line goes hot at 9am.  Both Friday and Saturday nights will feature a closing Mad Minute Tracer shoot.  But on Saturday, following the Mad Tracers, they are also going to finish the night with a Fireworks show, starting at around 9:50pm.

General Admission is $10 each day or $18 for the weekend.  Kids under 12 accompanied by an adult get in FREE.

There will be raffle prizes, t-shirts and hats as well as food and beverages available for purchase.
