Green Mountain Boys machine gun shoot

On July 13-14, dozens of machine gun enthusiasts and hundreds of fans attended the 13th annual Green Mountain Boys machine gun shoot at Camp David in Eden, Vermont. The weather held out and a good time was had by all.

A wide variety of weapons were on display at the event. The only time they were idle was to cool down and in between shoots. If you’re in the northeast in July, you should definitely consider attending this small and friendly event. It’s a great place to see some unusual guns, talk to some interesting people and get some trigger time by renting a machine gun or two.

The shoot is made possible by David Villeneuve, his family and a group of dedicated people who work hard to spread positive news about the Second Amendment. They make sure everyone is safe, well fed and entertained.

On top is British Lee Enfield No1 MkIII with a 7.5-inch barrel chambered in .303 British. Below is a Russian Mosin Nagant 91/30 chambered in 7.62x54R. Once rifles, both were made from de-milled rifle receivers that had been cut in half. They’re now considered pistols. (Photo: Ben Philippi/

A modified SG-43 Goryunov sits on a tripod. This is a medium machine gun the Russians started using during WWII. Windsor Arms Co. built it from various parts. They made the muzzle attachment which really helps to control it while shooting full auto. The original sights aren’t very good so they made an optic mount for the EOTech red dot.
