Arizona Gun Club Offers Photos With Santa 'And His Machine Guns' (VIDEO)

The Scottsdale Gun Club in Arizona is offering a twist on the annual photo with Santa by allowing rifle-wielding families to pose alongside St. Nick.

On their website, the shooting range advertises the event with a catchy tagline: "Get Your Holiday Picture With Santa And His Machine Guns!"

Both adults and kids are welcome to choose from a variety of armaments -- from pistols to modified AR15s -- before sitting on Santa's lap for a photo, according to MyFOX Phoenix.

While clearly encouraged at this particular event, posing with the rifles isn't required. Club member Jennifer Dove told the Daily Mail that at least one person declined to have their picture taken with the guns at last year's event.

"Whether you're a gun advocate or not, you should have a lot of fun with it," club member Richard Jones told MyFOX Phoenix.

The club's first session was held on Nov. 26, but gun enthusiasts have a second chance to snag a snapshot on Dec. 10. There's a $5 fee for members and $10 for nonmembers, according to club's website.
