Friday Night Gun Porn: Halloween Horror Shotgun Match 2015

Holidays are more fun when there is shooting involved.  Halloween is no exception.  The Halloween Horror shotgun match is an annual event in Arizona where competitors compete in costume in stages inspired by popular horror movies, games, or books.  This year's match was entirely based upon the Monster Hunter novel series by Larry Correia (if you haven't read them you should).

Stage descriptions:

Here's my open division run that got me 2nd place open and 2nd over all:

In addition to Pump, Auto, and Open divisions, the match has two unique divisions; Boom Stick and Action Hero.  Boom Stick is any break action shotgun.  Action Hero is any shotgun with no butt-stock.  This match is about having fun after all.  I shot the match a second time in Werewolf mode in Action Hero.  This proved to be both stupid and fun at the same time:

Here's some photos from the match. You can purchase the Monster Hunter International series right here (trust me, it's good, I and Reeder and several of our other contributors will attest).
