The typically tranquil community of Teakean-Cavendish will be shaken up as nearly 200 people gather in North Central Idaho for a weekend of explosives and guns at the 8th annual Boomershoot, April 29-
May 1, 2005. Exclusive spectator/participator slots, including the opportunity to mix explosives and shoot rifles, are available for media representatives.

 

"It’s a magical experience to see, hear, and feel an explosion,” says Joe Huffman, Event Director. “The Boomershoot is a Magic Kingdom for precision rifle shooters and spectators.”

At the May 1st shoot, 600 reactive targets containing over 1000 pounds of high explosives will be detonated -- enough to be heard over seven miles away, causing cars and houses to shake within two miles from the range.

”Our Fireballs put 4th of July fireworks to shame.” says Huffman.

Exploding Fireball targets are created from a special recipe developed Huffman and Assistant Event Director Ry Jones. Upon detonation, Fireballs produce colossal blazing explosions. “So fiery hot, you can feel it on your skin,” says Huffman.

Huffman, a Senior Research Scientist for a government laboratory, started Boomershoot in 1998 to give people a safe space in which to enjoy the recreational pleasure of guns and explosives. He is also a certified firearms instructor and has an ATF license to manufacture high explosives.

Boomershoot includes a precision rifle seminar that will be taught on April 29 & 30 by Major (Retired) Gene Econ, formerly an Officer in the US Army Special Forces. Econ is currently a marksmanship instructor for the 1st Brigade of the 25th Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team) at
Fort Lewis. All profits from the seminar will go towards the Lancer Memorial Fund. Details: http://www.boomershoot.org/2005/clinic.htm

Diverse shooters and spectators from across the country are expected to attend Boomershoot, including law enforcement officers, scientists, engineers, members of the Boeing Pistol & Rifle Club, and Microsoft Gun Club. Others are gun rights activists, such as Stephanie Sailor, three-time Illinois U.S. Congressional candidate (Independent), known for running cyber campaigns on a $0 budget.

Since the first event in 1998, Boomershoot has maintained an A+ safety record with participants adhering to strict standards of safe gun handling and operation. Spectators are welcome at this year’s event; shooter positions are expected to sellout.
