I'll be in Vegas the last week of this month (weekend of the 26th) for my bachelor party. Any Vegas members know of good ranges I can rent and shoot class 3 stuff? I'll post where we're staying if anyone wants to drink a beer to celebrate my demise.

Most ranges run about $30 per gun with 50 rds ammo. $15 for and additional 50 rds. The Gun Store 2900 E. Tropicana Ave. 702-454-1110 $16 cab ride from The Strip. Indoor range. Generally, someone's assigned to transport the weapon to the station and load it for you. SMG's are pretty beat up. American Shooters Supply 340 Arville St. 702-362-1223 Close to the strip. Cab ride was under $10. Indoor range. They trust you to carry the SMG to the station without supervision (So please act responsibly and don't ruin it for everyone). SMG's are in decent shape for rentals. A local even let me fire his personal MP5K. Machine Gun Kelly's Gun Vault 1631 E. Sunset rd., C-109 702-837-8383 www.machinegunkellys.com Never been. Checking it out next week. Supposedly close to the strip. Discount Firearms 1212 N. Boulder Highway Henderson 702-567-1158 Never been. 30 minutes out of LV. Olympic Gardens Ask any cabbie. Not a range, but your bachelor party wouldn't be complete without a stop there (Wink, wink).

A good laid back bunch of guys, but tabalos is right, the MG's are pretty beat up. Ok facility.

Assholes at an overpriced facility. I've tried to go there a few times, but they always come off as smug and holyer-than-thou... Not a bad range, but you'll pay for it. Stay away, if you can help it.

Good guys, but a bit pricy... no range, just a big class III dealer near the airport

This is the place you want to go... Great atmosphere and people, the MG's are great (MP5, MP5SD, Thompsons, etc.) And their prices are very reasonable. It's a bit out of town, but if you want to go on a Sun, Mon or Tues (my days off), just drop me an email and I'll pick you up and haul you out there. Cab fare would be outrageous. I need an excuse to get out there again anyway.

Don't forget about Nevada Pistol Academy 4610 Blue Diamond Rd. 702-897-1100.

Cool. Discount Firearms it is. Thanx a lot. You guys know about renting boats on Lake Meade? Are there any good bars in Vegas? JUST KIDDING!

Nope. Got me there, but if somebody had a machinegun/boat rental package, you can bet I'd know about it![heavy]
Link Posted: 4/5/2002 10:29:13 AM EDT
Oh, I just thought about this... why not try and get into one of Front Sight's free machinegun classes while you're here? It's free, you get real quality training and to shoot as much at a rental place you'd spend a few hundred $$. Plus, they feed you! Can't beat that for no money!

How do I do that? Just checked- here's a cool article on it from SAR [URL]www.frontsight.com/news_articles/SAR.htm[/URL] Here's where you apply [URL]www.frontsight.com/1day_smg_course.htm [/URL] Now that I read it, probably won't want to do the all day thing.

Might have a rental- if so, why don't you come with us. If not, we'd appreciate the ride!

You can always skip out after a few hours. I think by around 1pm, they had us firing bursts out of the Uzis. If you go there, you might want to spend the night before out in Pahrump, which is where FS is located. The Nugget is a pretty nice place; I've heard good things about Terrible's as well (with a name like Terrible's, they've got to be good [:D]).

If you think i'm BSing you, I made the same offer to i guy in CANADA that i talked to on www.HKPRO.com and he and his partner took me up of the offer.They bought around 1200rds of 556 and only 300rds of 9mm, they payed my son to link up 800rds for the 249, the rest was in mags. An they had a blast!!!!!!!He (steve from canada)couldnt beleive that at DSMRPC Range he could do 200rd bursts from the SAW!!!We also did some fire and maneuver, I still have a "nasty" scab on my elbow, from hitting the dirt so many times. TO say the lease, they were a 1000rds short!!! But it was getting cold, so they didnt get to do any night shooting with the PAC4, PVS4, PVS7. The offer is open, Go to www.hkpro.com/hkpro boards/hk talk/help me on my hk quest to nevada. In that thread he posted a pic of his partner holding the SAW with the Gemtech on it,And telling what a great time he had.

Steve, I will be in Chesapeake the 18th, practice shooting part of the day on the 19th for unofficial IDPA shoot at Blackwater on 20th and 21st. I am psyched for this event! We can get you a beer that Friday, and maybe a boatride at the Volvo shop? At least that is probably our plan for the 19th. Not that you deserve it, as I have said before, VA shooters have it too good in my opinion.
Link Posted: 4/7/2002 5:57:59 PM EDT
Zoub, Sounds like a plan- is that shoot filled up? I tried to do the last one but we got "burned" out (wood fire in Currituck). Did you go through Greg Moreno to sign up? Email me before you arrive and I'll give you my number. Larry- we are all over that. I'll call you Monday.
Link Posted: 4/7/2002 6:15:00 PM EDT
[url]http://www.thegunstorelasvegas.com/[/url] Here's the website for The Gun Store. I shot HK MP5 and Uzi while I was there. I wanted to shoot suppressed Mac10 also but I lost so much $ gambling and couldn't afford it. They got coupon for gun rental on their website. Didnt like the Uzi but MP5 was SWEEEEEEEET.
Link Posted: 4/7/2002 6:15:13 PM EDT
Steve, I signed up through my brother. I am drawing a blank on who sent me my info but I have that at my office. I am not sure if it is filled up but I will find out tomorrow. I heard about the fire. I am looking forward to this match. Roughly 15-16 courses of fire plus side matches for shotgun and backups.

Steve, this shoot is with the IDPA guys. I believe the guys are George Hartsell and Ron Reiner. Were you signed up for the IPSIC match that was "burned out"? My brother said some of the IPSIC guys shoot in the IDPA and vice versa. I don't know if it is filed up yet.

Yep, just out the driveway, up the road a mile or two, and down the whorehouses' driveway. I saw the signs for them on the way into town; I think they're all down the same side road.

Mine too. I was pleasantly surprised at how ergonomic it was, and how easy it was to handle and accurately fire. The Uzi has its advantages, but it is nowhere near as "friendly" as the MP5.
