One Tank Trip: Guntown Mountain

By  | 

"Are the guns real? Yes they're real guns but we're shooting blanks," said Kenneth Flynn Jr., on the guns they use on set at Guntown Mountain. "Even doing that, you can't shoot directly at the person - you have to shoot off to the side."

You can watch real-live cowboys like Flynn, show off their shooting skills during one of the seven gun shows at Guntown Mountain.

"As I grew up I watched a lot of Westerns. It's always fascinated me," Flynn explained.

But if you're more inclined in watching costumes twirl rather than a gun, you can catch the can-can dancers.

"We do what we can can," said one of the dancers, all decked out in a colorful costume.

But if you're like Chloe Privat, you could care less about guns or dancing. All she cares about is the animals.

"Now this one is hungry," Privat exclaimed, as she reaches a goat nibbling on the corn in her hand.

"Look at them - this one eats fast," Privat said. She wants to be a veterinarian. "No more food for him."

No matter what you want to be when you grow up, at Guntown Mountain there's something for everyone.
