This week, as part of the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, there will be shooting range demo days — the inaugural GUNFEST 2022 presented by GunBroker.com. This 3-day event at the Buffalo Chip Shooting Complex gives visitors the opportunity to test out the latest firearm products, ammunition, accessories and more in a supervised, controlled environment.

GUNFEST 2022 offers visitors the chance to try out live ammunition, thermal optics, air guns, shotguns, rifles, and handguns in private shooting lanes. The event is free and open to the public — but shooters must purchase the ammunition they use.
GUNFEST is a three-day shooting event held August 5th, 6th, and 7th at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Shooting Complex. General admission is free but shooters must pay for ammo. Attendees will have the opportunity to try out new firearms and suppressors. The event runs from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 5-7, 2022.
Location: Buffalo Chip Shooting Complex – 20622 Fort Meade Way, Sturgis, South Dakota
Guidelines for Participation at GUNFEST
Participants must first register with valid ID. Those who want to test firearms must then purchase an “ammunition punchcard” offering 25, 50, 75, or 100-round ammunition “round experiences”.
The event website explains: “When you decide what firearm you’d like to experience you will let the Sponsor booth’s representative know what you’d like to shoot. The Sponsor booth’s representative will then have their assigned GUNFEST RANGE OFFICER escort you and the firearm you’ve selected to experience into 1 of the Sponsor’s private shooting lanes.
It is here, AND ONLY HERE, ammunition will be provided to the participant to shoot at the various steel targets down range within the assigned range lane. NO ammunition will leave the range firing line and NO REFUNDS on ammunition purchases.”
