I just got a new regulator but there was no shutoff valve attached to it. I was hoping to bottle some beers for a get together tomorrow (via beer gun), is it necessary to have the shutoff valve at the regulator?

No, it is just a convenience. You will have to use the tank shutoff. There is more delay as the reg. body is bled out when you use the tank valve, but it works just fine.
Every little thing is gonna be alright.
