Kim and I recently took a trip to Vegas for her Bikini America competition and we decided to see what other trouble we could get in to while we were there. We called upon the services of Kaori of Angelika boutique concierge. Kaori is THE go to person in Las Vegas. I asked her if she would give us a recommendation of something that what would be cool and different to do while we were in Las Vegas. She suggested that we try shooting machine guns. You know that head tilt a dog does when they hear a high pitched sound? That’s kind of how I reacted when she said machine gun.
Apparently The Gun Store in Vegas has completed slipped under my Jet Set radar. It’s already been featured on the Travel Channel, Bravo T.V.’s Pawn Stars and Maxim magazine to name a few. So, I figured what the heck! Life is about doing different and interesting things. Why not!
When we arrived at The Gun Store we were completely taken care of. You have your own personal “tour guide” assigned to you (think Rambo) who sets you up with pretty much anything you want. They have everything from Tommy guns to AK-47s. You name it, you can get your hands on it! Best of all? You don’t need a special license for anything. All employees are certified range safety officers through the National Rifle Association. In addition, many of the staff members are retired military and law enforcement officers.
During our tour we got to select one gun from each of the following categories (a total of three guns):
- Handgun (20 shots): Glock, Springfiled, Beretta, Walther, FNH, Ruger, Smith & Wesson or Dirty Harry .44
- Shotgun (5 shots) or semi-automatic rifle (10 shots): Benelli M4 12-gauge, Remington 12-gauge, AR-15, HK G3, Springfield M1A, HK G36 or Beretta Cx4 Storm
- Fully automatic machine guns (50 shots): Walther MPL, Madsen M50, Colt M16, HK MP5, Uzi, Sten MKII, Thompson, Grease Gun or AK47 / M4 (25 shots)
It was a total BLAST!
Sure, Vegas is famous for lots of other things. But, how often do you get a chance to shoot a machine gun? If you’re in Vegas and you want to try unique things to do like shooting a machine gun, taking a sunset helicopter ride over the strip (or whatever else Kaori can dream up) head over to Angelika Boutique Concierge.
