    Anyone checked this place out yet? Looking to go there in October to fire some cool guns with the family.

    Which one are you guys going to?

    DiscountFirearmsLV.com or WWW.THEGUNSTORELASVEGAS.COM

    I've haven't gone to either, but have always been curious.

    I believe they cost about $1 per round. Keep that in mind... $20 or $30 per second :D

    yep, very expensive and not that fun to shoot in an indoor shooting range. if you are a gun enthusiast you won't have much fun for the high cost. it's just a tourist trap for people who've only seen guns in the movies.

    Most of your in-room Show magazines have $5.OFF coupons
    as well as the FREE adds you'll find on the back seat of your taxi
    but it's really peanuts compared to the over all cost.

    I believe the OP is referring to the store of the same name: http://machinegunsvegas.com/ . The web site says that outdoor shoots are available, but I was too lazy to try to find anything more about it.

    For a very different experience, you might check into Shooting Safaris ( http://www.shootingsafaris.com/index.html ). The web site doesn't seem to have changed in years, and I don't know its current status. I tried it in 2009, and had a great time. The package I tried let you shoot a total of 17 guns, including a replica of a flintlock rifle, a Sharps buffalo rifle replica (oh, my aching shoulder), and a modern sniper rifle.

    Yes it certainly seems expensive, watching that little video on homepage of the gun store i noticed the AK 47 you can take 25 shots for $50.

    Tourist Trap it may be... but I've wanted to try this place out for a long time, and I think I'm just stupid enough to spend that kind of money for some entertainment!

    I did the AK-47 last year with a couple friends. It's been a long time since I fired anything, loved it. It was about $50 for 25 rounds with the coupon. You can buy an additional 50 rounds, I forgot how much they cost. If your not careful it can be over pretty fast, make sure you don't fire too many rounds at once or it will be over in a blink. Yeah, about the same amount you can lose at the casino in that time.

    Tourist trap? Sure.
    Expensive? Definitely.
    Fun? Absolutely.

    Having said that, I've done it once, got my rocks off, and probably wouldn't go back again.

    I have done this in Poland, it was relatively expensive there as well. Can't do it in the UK though and at least I have fired an AK-47 now. Can tick that off me list.

    Thank you everyone for your input. I know it is a tourist trap but where else do you get to shoot some cool guns with the family.

    Go for it. Nothing is a tourist trap if you enjoy it and can't do it at home IMO.

    Yep, and you get to fire them for free! Well, actually, there is a catch; like a 3 to 4 yr. enlistment, overseas training and deployment, training, training, and more training! And a good chance that some-one will fire back at you!

    Lol, I don't regret it though....:wave:

    People from other countries or even other states will never have a chance to fire one. If it is something you have been wanting to do this is definitely your chance.
