Gun Bash

America’s Freedom Lodge Gun Bash is quickly becoming the place to be in Licking and surrounding counties in mid-September at the Hartford Fairgrounds just outside of Johnstown, Ohio. Whether you are an avid outdoorsman looking to win your next firearm to hunt with, a collector looking for a top of the line firearm, or even an archer looking for a new bow, we have something for you to win. In the past we have even offered an outdoor package that included a chainsaw, weed eater, and leaf blower, a beautiful hunting blind, a “Tiffany Blue” handgun, an American Flag dipped hand gun, and the ever popular gun safe filled with tons of secret prizes.

But, that’s not all, also up for grabs is free food and refreshments all day, or until they run out. We strive to only offer the best of the best so we have contracted with Smithheisler Meats for catering this year and cold beer will be flowing from the tap. We also have bottled water and soft drinks available, kept cold on ice, for your drinking pleasure.

Worried about coming and staying all day and not wanting to drive home after? We’ve got that covered too! For only an additional $25.00 per space per night you can bring your tent or RV and stay right on the beautiful Hartford Fairgrounds. The sites have full electric and water hookups, and are located just a short walk from the event.

Even if you cannot attend the day of the Gun Bash you want a ticket! Each ticket gets you the chance of 20 guns and a crossbow, 3 $500 cash prizes, and a Grand Prize of $2500!

This is our biggest and most profitable fundraiser, it all comes down to this day and this event. 80% of the money that we operate on, the money that helps get our Veterans back into the outdoors comes from this 1 day of fun. We usually have about 90 volunteers on the floor to make sure that things run smoothly, and everyone is safely having an exciting time! Need something, no need to leave your seat, the volunteers will be by to refill your drinks, collect your trash, and even deliver your beer! Sit back, relax, and help us support an amazing cause and have a fun time doing it! Contact any AFL staff Member, Utica Feed and Hardware, or watch our Facebook page to get a ticket. Tickets are limited and are on sale for just $25.00 on a first come, first served basis only. Once they are gone, they are gone! Only 2,000 sold!
