Original Coney Island Shooting Gallery

Original, still-working, Coney Island shooting gallery. It was made in 1928 and brought to Geneva On The Lake in 1938, where tourists could fire real .22 bullets at it until 1982. Now it's the backdrop of the bar in the Sandy Chanty restaurant.

[Bryan, 09/02/2017]

Sandy Chanty owner Patt Bowen found the Shooting Gallery in a room hidden behind a false wall. Every half-hour during business hours the Shooting Gallery is turned on, although patrons are no longer allowed to fire guns at it.
