I took a four day weekend to go... Fun for the whole family!

Each year, on the 4th weekend of August, Ahlman's put on the greatest shooting show you'll ever see: SHOOTER'S ROUNDUP. Here's a brief list of what takes place:

FACTORY GUN TESTING...Nearly all the major gun companies set up test ranges where YOU can personally test fire their guns. Many offer free shooting, some charge for ammo.

EXOTIC GUN TESTING...Ever had the urge to shoot a machine gun, or a .50 cal? How about blasting a Chevy with a Browning A-4 or knock out one of Saddam's tanks with a 25 mm anti-tank gun? You can do all this (legally) at Shooter's Roundup.

WILDERNESS HUNT...Our most popular event. You'll face 15 challenges that demand proficiency with shotgun, rifle, handgun, bow, knife (and a few others we toss in to keep you awake). Score high and win guns and other valuable prizes.

PRIZE HUNT...If you don't care for the physical demands of the wilderness hunt, try our prize hunt. Locate all 15 sites and qualify for valuable prizes.

OLD WEST MELODRAMA...You'll cry when Sweet Sally is gunned down. You'll gasp when cowboys fall from the rooftops. You'll applaud when the posse gets Black Bart. You'll love this half hour show with it's cast of 40. Two shows daily.

TRICK SHOOTING SHOW...This one hour show will put you on the edge of your chair as you stare in disbelief at the impossible shots done by our trick shooter. Famous name performers such as BILL OGLESBY, TOM KNAPP and JOHN SATTERWHITE will dazzle you with their performance. One show daily.

SHOPPING FOR SHOOTING...There's over 150 vendors at Shooters Roundup for you to check out. And...if you don't find what you're looking for, check out Ahlman's Gun Store which has over 3,000 guns on display.

WHAT'S IT COST?...Here's the good part. Admission is only $5. for both days. You won't find another show this side of the Mississippi that offers this much entertainment for only five bucks. Of course, if you test fire every single gun, enter every contest and pork out at all the food stands, you can run up the tab a bit. But...you'll have a blast doing it.

WHEN?...This year's event will be held Aug. 27 & 28. Gates open at 9AM and close at 5. Be sure to come early because it takes all day to see everything. For more details, call us at (507) 685-4243 and we'll mail you a flyer.

Sorry for the ignorance, but where is this located? No idea where Morristown is.

Also, you should post it in the MN hometown forum...

Morristown is on the way to Owatonna MN Very close to Cabela's.

Ahlmans Gun store is known through out the midwest for their gunsmithing. Also they have well over 3,000 guns on display.

I would love to attend the Shooter Round up, but I have to work weekends, and I just dropped $1,000 at Ahlman's last week. I can' afford another trip.

Never heard of it. I'd probably go but I have plans to go skydiving on the 27th.

Its a fun time, threre are rep's from all the major gun makers-They bring lots of their guns so you can test fire them after you buy their ammo... Rep's from CCRN, The DNR, NRA, Highway Patrol, various CCW Instructors, good sized flea market, Indian tee pee buck skin leather sales...

I like the 50, A-4, and auto 9mm and 45acp (MN C&R automatic laws) $5 a shot and 15 rd auto.
They have a couple of old fashion Western town fronts with a board walk, then theirs Fort Ahlman's - quite the fort with look out towers in the corners. Its an excellent set-up with alot of tought and labor that went into the building of this place. Believe me I am very inpressed every year I see it! Its fun for the whole family and the shows are great!
