“[LeBron] James and his wife Savannah went for a little his & hers target practice at Lock & Load Miami on New Year’s Eve, where they sprayed bullets from multiple guns, including a M-249 SAW (that’s the one [not] featured in the video),” tmz.com reports. This is a good thing; any time a celebrity picks up a gun and has fun an anti cries a little. “LeBron was assigned a specialist to help him on the range — and the guy is a legit badass … an ex-police officer who’s currently a military reservist. Mr. and Mrs. James spent roughly two hours firing weapons … and we’re told they were very cool to fans, signing autographs and taking pictures.” And just in case you were wondering, tmz wants you to know that “No one was harmed in the making of this post.”

    • Neither should you feel obligated to care, nor should you feel obligated to broadcast the fact of your not caring.

      This is true: last week LeBron got carded – CARDED! – at a hotel bar! Can you beat that? He looked old enough to drink when he was in high school!

        • Because a pro-athlete is very publicly using a firearm in a responsible way. And because really, the type of folks who actually really care about what TMZ reports tends to be low information voters… the kind that vote away our gun rights. Here they’re being exposed to firearms in a positive way.

          That’s chock full of win all around.

  1. I failed to see any bullets being “sprayed”; evidently, they believe that more than one bullet can come out of the muzzle at a time….

  2. The reason you care is that it is positive PR for the POTG. They had a good time and that makes them a literal comrade in arms.

  3. What? No Safety Suzy has yet to scream bloody murder over the fact that somebody obviously was handholding a smartphone in front of the firing line to get this quick video?

    • I think the separate WOD might get you some cross traffic from cross fitters, eh, eh, whaddayathink?

  4. I’ve been to this place. Just opened less than a year ago. Sits a mile north of the Downtown Miami Proper right of North Miami Avenue. Place is super expensive because they make you use frangible ammunition, probably because the range has you aiming out to the street. They charge you by the box so you need to bring a ton of cash to avoid only having 10 seconds of fun for $60.

    • you need to bring a ton of cash to avoid only having 10 seconds of fun for $60.

      I read about a place like that in a book called “The Happy Hooker.”

  5. Cool that they did it, lame that was the video that came out of it. Went to an indoor range with full auto rentals one time. Whole thing was free thru a buddy of mine. Range owner’s shorty M4 was full auto. We were taking turns firing bursts out of it like Lebron in the video. Owner came on the range and grabbed the gun, jammed a 20rnd mag in and clamped down on the trigger for a 20rnd burst and said something to the effect of “that’s how you do it son.”

  6. Somehow the fact that a super-rich guy can afford to rent some time with a full-auto rifle at an expensive urban firing range doesn’t feel like a win to me.

    On the other hand it is fairly pleasant, picturing various smarmy prohibitionists squirming with discomfort caused by LeBron-and-wife’s ballistic fun. Oh, dear. What if the proles start thinking guns are…gasp…okay?

  7. The last time I went to a full auto rental range, in Utah, I chose a .40 cal Glock with a suppressor. Indoor range was rated to fire .50 bmg in. People were cranking out a variety of full autos. Even had one of those ginourmous and clumsy looking full auto AA12 shotguns.

    As soon as they saw me with that suppressed Glock they stopped and gathered around to watch. People are weird. They always want what they ain’t got.

  8. Did anyone see the video? Gun range: irresponsible gun owner of the day. Allowing videoing from the front of a fully automatic weapon being fired by a professional…basketball player…WTF? You’ll poke your eye out! and kudos for taking him to the range. NBA is very left sided. I love liberals crying. Plus, an actual legal place to shoot guns albeit irresponsibly nonetheless is still positive.

  9. If Labron showed up at Knob Creek and shot machine guns while sporting an NRA hat I might actually like the dude… hell, I’d become his biggest fan. Until then, I don’t. Go Trail Blazers!

  10. I hope that this is the last time that TMZ video is featured on this website (short of extenuating circumstances).

  11. “and the guy is a legit badass … an ex-police officer who’s currently a military reservist”

    These people have a low standard for “legit badass”.
