Shooters in Park Mammoth

What once was a sleepy resort on U.S. 31-W at the edge of Edmonson and Barren counties is quickly making a bang in the gun world and having an economic influence on the region. Park Mammoth Resort and its Rockcastle Shooting Center are on the radar of gun enthusiasts from across the country - and even the world, as evidenced by the AR15.com Rockcastle 3-Gun Pro-Am Championship held over the weekend. The match drew three major outdoors cable channels and interest from bloggers and Internet radio. Nearly 500 professional and amateur shooters from 43 states and four countries participated in the event.
