Until the novelty wears off. Me I get possed off when ever I’m anywhere near some blowhole banging awY with a full auto bouncing shells all over the place…. Reply Something is wrong with you 🙂 Reply Article is premium content, and you’ll have to subscribe to read it. Reply I’d love to read more, but the Orlando Sentinel is a subscription based newspaper. Reply Go to Google news, that will get you around most paywalls. Reply Strange, because I actually relax at the range. Reply Exactly, shooting is a great way to unwind. If someone wants excitement, they should do a run and gun or an IDPA match. Reply Or a tour in Afghanistan Reply Same here. Once I get into my shooting drills, I am calm and focused. Did too much adrenaline as an USAF SP in the 80’s, so I avoid it. 🙂 Reply Relaxation is one of the primary reasons I go to the range. The breathing control, mental clarity, and focus on gross and fine motor control is – for me, at least – naturally de-stressing; perhaps even slightly meditative (albeit not in any spiritual sense). Reply Man, I was just down there and I didn’t know about it. 8~( Reply Looks like a square range that has machine guns. On the video, the range safety officer was doing virtually all the work. She was pretty darn cute, though. I’d have more fun with a move and shoot against dynamic targets. YMMV. Reply There is (well, there *was*) a facility like that in West Chester, OH (just outside Cincinnati). It’s a shoot-the-zombie-bad-guys course, using their Simunition-modified handguns. It was a lot of fun. Reply Anyone who thinks that miniature golf isn’t an adrenalin sport has never taken a flock of eight-year olds to the local putt-putt. Reply Word. Go on a field trip with a class of 8 yo;s. I’d rather trade shots with the jihadi;s. Less stress. Reply The video is on YouTube: Reply How ’bout not posting links to newspaper ads. I thought it was to the story. Reply Orlando’s Most Thrilling Attraction! That’s the tagline. For those not from Florida, this place is located in tourist central; the secondary(parasitic) raft of lesser attractions profiting from their close proximity to Disney World. Generally speaking, this is the strip mall, sea shell selling tourist trap area, we locals really try to avoid. Get it? It’s an “attraction” that’s designed to attract suckers. Non-locals, with wads of extra vacay money to spend, or the locally-grown, mall ninja’s. Did you see how fast that cute RO put her hand on the gun after the last shot was fired? Uh….does the RO at your LGS and shooting range do that to you when you pop the last round? Yah, me neither. It’s an E-ticket ride, to be sure, but should firing machine guns be packaged as entertainment? So, if you’re a Islamic terrorist here on vacation from jihad….where could you go get easy access to fully automatic weapons? Reply So nobody should own a gun cause the bad jihadis might take them away and use them? If firing a machine gun ain’t entertainment, I don’t know what is. Reply @Out_Fang_Thief – Whadda you expect? Ever since Shooting Sports on I -Drive closed years back, someone was gonna take up the slack. Reply I’m from the area also, and don’t always go to that part of town. From the article, it says it costs $99 to shoot the Full-Auto/Select Fire weapons. Way too pricey, and definitely aimed (no pun intended) at Tourists. It also said that the range does not allow you to bring your own firearms to shoot at their facility. That alone discourages local shooters from going there. It costs $15 to go to a local range like Shoot Straight that allows you to bring your own guns and shoot rapid fire. $100 is a complete rip-off.
