Gallery of Select-Fire Guns and Registered Destructive Devices

As a filmmaker and photographer for Guns.com, I’ve been fortunate to travel to every corner of America to attend gun shows, machine gun shoots and range days. I document unique, rare and fascinating guns and registered destructive devices.

In many cases, I’m lucky enough to make videos about guns and their proud owners. So check the descriptions below the photographs for more information and click on the photographs to see the corresponding videos.

Enjoy.
