Rob O’Neill will go shooting with conservative donors who drop $ 50,000 for the June event.

The Navy SEAL who claims he killed Osama Bin Laden is going shooting with conservative group big guns.

Rob O’Neill will spend a “special weekend” in June palling around with donors who drop $ 50,000 on the ForAmerica fundraiser, the Washington Post reported.

The group, which aims to spread “traditional and contemporary American values,” invited its key contributors to stay at the “intimate and discreet” Amangani Resort Hotel in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

“Our event will consist of clay, pistol and ‘machine gun fun’ competitions with Rob O’Neill,” according to a fundraiser document.

Because of security concerns, the invite did not detail specific times and locations of activities.

ForAmerica works to support conservative policies, legislation and candidates, according to its website. The group was founded in 2009 by conservative commentator Brent Bozell and has grown to rake in millions of dollars and supporters.

Rob O’Neill, a highly-decorated veteran who quit after 16 years service, claims he killed Osama Bin Laden.

O’Neill’s spokesman told the Post that the Montana man is headlining the event “as a favor to a friend who has been helping him out.” He did not elaborate.

In November, O’Neill, 38, was unmasked as the man who killed Bin Laden in a 2011 raid on his Pakistan compound.

Some people hailed him as a hero while others, including another former Navy SEAL, doubted his story.

The government reportedly began investigating him for leaking military secrets in December.
