We are glad you are interested in shooting with us. After filling out our electronic safety waiver (completed here at TMGN) and watching our safety briefing, let us know it is your first time. We will guide you through the different rental options we have and make sure you have everything you need to shoot safely, and feel comfortable, at our indoor shooting range in Frederick.

Short Answer: There are some machine guns that can be purchased that were built before May 19, 1986. These are know as Transferable Machine Guns and they are very limited and very expensive (for obvious reasons). Anything built after that date is only allowed to be owned by manufacture FFL holders, law enforcement, and government agencies. We do not sell machine guns.
