It seems Australians, kids and all, are lining up in battalions behind Americans in Las Vegas to not just play Rambo for a day – but also pull the trigger on everything from a M249 SAW machine gun to a Glock 17 pistol.
The owner of Machine Guns Vegas, Genghis Cohen told me Australians are now his second biggest market.
According to the website, machinegunsvegas.com MGV offers the only lounge experience that let’s you fire the “kind of kickass artillery you have seen in the hands of SEAL and Delta Force teams.” Packages include the SAS Experience and the The Gamers’ Experience. “Have you hit a plateau in your favourite first-person shooter game, such as Battlefield™, and want to take it to the next level? Fire the real versions of the guns you use in these games including the AK-47, HK MP5, M4, and Glock 17.”
The website goes on to say the standard kid’s package comes “with an .22 Baretta ARX, which is a wildly popular submachine gun used by various military, law enforcement, intelligence, and security organisations PLUS
* An M4, which is a magazine-fed, air-cooled, gas-operated gun that is fired from the shooter’s shoulder and features a telescoping stock and a variety of firing options, including semi-automatic, full-automatic, and three-round burst. “Also, if you’re looking to extend the exhilaration, you can choose to add on a sniper rifle or shotgun for an extra $30.”
Children (17 years or under) must be of a height and weight necessary to fire specific firearms, and they must accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
It could only happen in America.
