DEONTAY WILDER has been blowing off some steam at his personal firing range ahead of his long-awaited return to the ring.
The former WBC heavyweight champion is a firearms aficionado and is no stranger to showing off his collection of guns on social media.
And on Saturday night, The Bronze Bomber posted a snap of himself smiling with THREE firearms – one of which was an automatic rifle – to his Instagram page.
The picture's accompanying caption read: "If you know me then you already know!
"Huge s/o to @actiontarget for coming to my compound blessings my #UnderGroundGunRange with the goods.
"#BombZquad #TilThisDay #GunLover."
Wilder, 35, revealed his huge arsenal of weapons – which includes a rocket launcher – in the build-up to his first clash with Tyson Fury in December 2018.
He told BT Sport: “I don't need police or anybody coming into my house.

“You can buy anything, I don't know about legally but you can buy anything you want.
“I usually go to a range, I mean I'm about to build one, a whole course. I've got a whole bunch of different ones.
“This is custom, my 50KL, I've got another one as well. When you shoot it it's crazy.
“When I first shot it I put it down for like a week before picking it back up because I was like "hell no" it was too much power.
“It was a hell of a lot of power. I used to do shooting all the time like every weekend.
“It's therapeutic for sure. I used to clean all of them and break them down and all that stuff.
“I have got bullet-proof vests as well, I've got enough for an army.”
Wilder is about to step up his training for his third meeting with current WBC king Fury, who dethroned him last February.
The American finally secured a trilogy fight with Fury this week after a judge ruled he was still contractually entitled to a third bout with the Brit.
The pair will renew their rivalry on July 24 in Las Vegas, with their latest meeting set to take place at either the Allegiant Stadium or the T-Mobile Arena.
Fury put pen to paper on the contract early this morning and said: "Wilder, this contract is signed.
"You're getting smashed. When I say smashed, I mean smash, smash, smash, bang.
"You're getting knocked out. End of. One round, you're going. I've got your soul, your mojo, everything."
