Default Bullpup Shoot 2016 - Sept. 17th, 2016 in Mt. Carroll Illinois. FREE to the public!



It is that time of year again, Bullpup Shoot is almost here!

Come on out FOR FREE and meet Vendors with the newest and coolest stuff, get to try out full auto and suppressed weapons for the cost of ammo, and bring your own guns to shoot on the Open Shoot bay!

This year we will have several new guns out on the demo line, including the HMG STG-44, Lithgow Arms F90 (i.e. the "Australian AUG"), some new bullpups from JARD, Inc., and a host of other classics like Tommy Guns, Tavors, PKM belt fed, semiauto .50 cal, and so forth!

Vendors will also have products to check out and for sale!

Food will be available on site, but you are also welcome to bring your own lunch. Kids and Family are welcome (recommended to bring your own hearing and eye protection).

If you have any questions email us at info@bullpupshoot.com

Hope to see you there!

The last one was great. Much cheaper to shoot full autos than at "machinegun shoots".

Glad to see a lot of you guys are coming out!

Come up to the Manticore Arms Vendor booth, tell them you are a member of AKfiles, and we will give you a free Manticore Arms morale patch and sticker.

Yup, unloaded with a chamber flag as per the previous years.

Name another event where you can do THAT!

Excellent! I believe most the AKFiles guys are going to meet up at our Manticore Arms Vendor booth at 10am, be sure to stop by!

I am pretty busy with everything going on, but will do my best to be at the booth around that time to meet everyone.

Every gun show I've ever been to has allowed OC of unloaded long guns, I think.

What about CC? Explicitly allowed or disallowed? Don't ask don't tell?

Had a great time! Thanks Sven!

I think I shot twice as much this year over last year. Unfortunately I spent so much time shooting that I didn't have a lot of time to take as many pictures and shoot as many videos as I wanted. What I did get will go up in the next day or two.

I only have a very few pics on my personal phone, but I had a professional photo/video guy doing a bunch of coverage that I will be able to post in the next few days.

Here are a few shots I took:

Shuttles from the Vendor/parking area to the Range area


Lithgow USA full auto ATRAX with 20" barrel on and with 16" barrel- should be available by the end of the year, MSRP under $2K


Manticore booth with all the guns with new and current products we offer. Note the SIG MPX telescoping stock block we are making (used on the SB Tactical SIG slider arm brace and our own SIG telescoping stock that will be coming out soon!)


Panoramic shot of one of the shooting lines on the Demo Gun bay


Manticore announced our new line of steel targets at the event- this is one of our panzer targets that will retail for $125. 3/8" AR46100 (same armor used on MRAPS, superior to AR500 as it is actually tested against projectiles), size is about 24' wide by 12" high weight 30 lbs
We also have german halftracks, opel 2 ton trucks, and army men targets that look like your favorite green plastic army men from your childhood.


Some of my peeps working hard (or maybe hardly working in this shot!) at the Manticore booth.


My personal 85 CJ9 Scrambler I just frame off restored in a military theme and used as one of our shuttles. Nothing like some 50 cal fun on a jeep!
