Event description


Join the Lt. General Victor “Brute” Krulak Detachment of the Alabama Marine Corps League at Brock’s Gap Training Center on Saturday, October 28th, for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shoot the Marine Corps-issued weapons of the 20th century.

We will have at least twenty-two (22) shooting positions. With each ticket, the ticket-holder will be authorized to shoot up to three firearms of his or her choice.

We will also have a free kids-only shooting arcade with targets disguised as zombies and other Halloween-themed characters.

Shooting begins at 10am and ends at 5pm.

We will also have a food truck on-site and other activities for the whole family.

Where do I sign in?

There will be signage directing you from the parking area to the registration table where you will sign-in and receive your three shooting position tickets.

What about safety?

Safety is the top priority at this event and is absolutely paramount to Brock’s Gap Training Center. Everyone must undergo a safety briefing before they are permitted to shoot any of the firearms, and we will have certified safety and range officers on-site.

After you sign-in, you will be directed to the Safety Briefing area where you will be briefed on all the safety matters for the day, along with basic firearm handling guidelines. Upon completion of the Safety Briefing, you will recieve a wrist band, ear protection and eye protection. You will then be permitted to access the various shooting positions.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No minimum age requirements.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is plenty of on-site parking available, including handicap parking. We will have volunteers directing traffic and showing you where to park.

What should I bring to the event?

Bring your friends and family.

Also, we will have ear and eye protection available, but we encourage participants to bring their own from home if they have it.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You may contact the organizer at shootwiththebrutes@gmail.com.

What's the refund policy?

Your ticket purchase serves as a donation to the Marine Corps League, a 501(c)4 nonprofit organization, and therefore tickets are nonrefundable. You may request a donation receipt at the event or by emailing David Landier at shootwiththebrutes@gmail.com.

What if it rains?

This is a rain or shine event. All shooting positions are covered.
