The Buffalo Chip Guns of Freedom Machine Gun Shoot Experience is the ultimate multi-sensory event


Experience your second amendment first hand at the machine gun shoot, Guns of Freedom, at the Buffalo Chip Campground. Now is your chance to shoot real ammunition from real automatic weapons and get the training required for a 35-state concealed carry permit.

Each year, the Guns of Freedom is by far one of the most thrilling Sturgis Rally events. With participants from 23 different countries firing exotic firearms at some very irresistible stationary and exploding targets, it’s hard not to feel the adrenaline pulsating through the air.

A shooting arcade for grown-ups

You’ve been to the arcade more times than you can count to shoot the machine gun video games and always wished for more. Now’s your chance to experience something more. Every day at the Buffalo Chip Sports Complex you can shoot live rounds from real weapons like the ones in 1920’s that gangsters and the men and women serving in American and International military and Special Forces shoot.

Choose from WWI, WWII, Korean and Vietnam War era as well as present-day full automatic weapons and semi-automatic and bolt-automatic rifles. You’ll also have your choice of American, German and Russian firearms used by police, swat teams, and the military. Altogether over 60 models are available for shooing including the Smith & Wesson 500, a 50-caliber long range target gun that shows 5 ½ inch long shells, and the 50-caliber M2, the firearm our soldiers fondly refer to as “Ma Duce.” But that’s not all. Added just this year was the bowling bowl mortar, a short cannon of sorts capable of shooting 16-pound bowling balls up to 500 yards!

The Buffalo Chip Guns of Freedom is the only place you can go during the 2013 Sturgis Rally to see, hear, smell, taste and feel the thrill and excitement of shooting live ammo from live machine guns. Come take part in the ultimate Second Amendment experience – no prior shooting experience required.
