Las Vegas is famous for offering the most varied attractions to its visitors. In addition to trying their luck in the casinos and attending lively parties in the city, tourists can enjoy an unusual and thrilling attraction, shooting with powerful firearms.
Going to shooting ranges has become a frequent program among Brazilians who visit Las Vegas. Some visit just out of curiosity, while others take the opportunity to quickly learn to shoot and improve their aim, enjoying a different experience for those looking for fun and adrenaline.
There are several places where you can experience this safely and professionally. These places offer different packages that vary in the weapon used, targets chosen and even the number of shots allowed. Among the weapons available are rifles (AK-47), submachine guns (Uzi), machine guns (SAW), handheld weapons and even some used during the Second World War.
Some of the venues also offer an experience for children over the age of 6, in which they can shoot with .22 caliber weapons. Yes, it’s quite controversial, but everything is done very professionally. This “joke” costs around 50 dollars.
Before the adventure begins, you must answer a questionnaire and sign a document stating that you are in perfect psychological condition and have not consumed alcohol or drugs. This is because safety is the main factor in this type of attraction.
The venues provide safety equipment, which is already included in all packages (headphones and goggles)
