There are a few things that go great together in life. Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. Beers and Brats. Another great pairing is the combination of two iconic American symbols. Motorcycles and Guns.
Now, to make this even a better combination is when you may combine these two together for a great cause.

Each participant will receive 5 x 9mm bullets, ensuring every rider will have ammo for the shootout. We just wanted to ensure each participant had available ammo for the event. We will provide any rider a 9mm pistol to use at the range to participate if needed by a participant.
There are 2 Mulligans available for each rider in the game. You may discard any two cards and reshoot, up to two cards for an additional $20. You may add your Mulligans at registration. Remember this is for charity.

All participants of the Gun Runner must ride a motorcycle to participate. This does include that your passenger is eligible.

The card sheet will be verified by the crew of Hellbender, Southern Devil, and Grease Inc. at each location. You must have your card or shot verified and signed off to be eligible to win.
At each of the ranges you will receive a new target with a deck of cards laid out. The targets will be set at 5 yards on the range to shoot. You will get one shot at your target for your card selection. Again, you will need to bring your target to the on-site verification staff team for them to complete and sign off on your hand. (You may take some practice shots at each range prior to your card shot. Please keep it no more than one magazine at each range.)

At each range, our group will be assigned Range Safety Instructors. Follow their instructions exactly, as the Safety Instructors are here for everyone’s safety. Follow all range guidelines and safety instructions. Safety is our number one priority at this event.
