We are the New Mexico Gunfighters Association (NMGA) and we are loading up for Season 2023. That means our posse is on the lookout for new gigs this year and we would be thrilled to ride out to your town and cause some family-friendly ruckus.
Gun safety and the education of such safety is our NUMBER ONE priority. We never use live ammo. We only use blanks. We do a lot of behind-the-scenes safety protocols such as, but not limited to, gun checks, reminders, sliding a rod down the barrel, etc.
In addition, before each show, the Gunfighters perform a gun safety demonstration for the audience using a balloon and showing how even a blank can cause harm. We rope off the staging area, so to keep the crowds at a safe distance. All of our Gunfighters are skilled at keeping a watchful eye on the crowd to ensure they stay behind the perimeters, especially young children who may not understand the rules. All of the Gunfighters are prepared to stop a show in progress should this occur. We teach young children about gun safety by asking them important gun safety question(s) that all children should know….
What do you do if you come across a gun?ANSWER: Don’t touch it and go tell a trusted adult, such as a parent or teacher or legal guardian.
The kids who can answer the question correctly are given a toy sheriff badge and are “deputized” for being a safe law dog. This process is two-fold in that we not only teach gun safety to young cowpoke but also to have respect for the law. Check out our Gun safety page for more information about our safety protocols.
