The gun community, like most other communities, wants to be accepted and liked. We believe there exists a public perception that inaccurately portrays us as, if not outright criminal, at least as crude, ignorant, and/or stupid -- "red-necked, knuckle dragging, Neanderthals". At the Boomershoot, we want to put our best image forward, help the media to understand us and to see the human side of us. We want them to see us and the sports we play in the same light as people that play golf or tennis, race motorcycles, or collect stamps or cars.
View our Fact Sheet for interesting details and possible points of interest about the Boomershoot. Contact one or more of our experts for an interview. You will find them thoughtful, knowledgeable, smart, and sometimes full of 'character'. View our Gun Dictionary to understand the language of our culture. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for answers to the first questions that pop into your head. We've probably been asked dozens of times and have it already answered.
If you wish to attend our event, here are directions and a list of suggested motels. Please tell us when you will be attending so we can better accommodate your needs. Feel free to let us know what sort of things you would like to see and do.
