Fully Automatic Guns, Booze/Cubans/Food – For Charity
On Friday October 18th The Shooting Edge will be hosting their annual event (now in the 11th year!) called Scotch And Shoot. Yes, you get to shoot a variety of fully automatic weapons. Yes, fully automatic weapons are also banned in Canada. The Shooting Edge obtains a special license for this event which allows the use of fully automatic weapons, both new and vintage firearms. It’s really fun! The best part though? It’s a charitable event. All of the Scotch and Shoot proceeds will be donated to 41 Service Battalion Society.
- Buy Tickets (18+ only)
In addition to the guns, there’s a full spread of yummy food, beer/wine and a selection of Scotch to try, Cuban cigars to puff up, plus you get to hang out with a bunch of rad people. This event is limited to 300 tickets and sells out every year. It’s a good time. Oh by the way, you shoot first, then drink :Þ
See below; the fully auto Glock had to be housed in that shoulder support thing because it packs such a punch.

Scotch and Shoot Details
Throughout the evening guests are invited to shoot a wide selection of new and vintage firearms then taste extraordinary scotches, drink fine wines and beer (supplied by Wild Rose Brewery) and eat enough BBQ’d meat to make a grown man weep. There is also an outdoor cigar garden and Cuban cigars available for purchase plus an exhibit from the Military Museums of Calgary and a commemorative gift.
What are the details, you ask? Well – the $275 ticket price includes access to all shooting bays (pistol and rifle) featuring our private collection of unique military and contemporary firearms, a mouthwatering BBQ buffet plus 15 pre-paid ‘activity tickets’ that can be used for ammunition, adult refreshments or both. Each activity ticket can be exchanged for a magazine of ammo or a fine cocktail, premium scotch or glass of wine. Certain scotches may require additional tickets.
Once your pre-paid tickets are gone, additional ammunition and beverages are available for purchase throughout the evening.
