Default Machine Gun America - Orlando

The wife and I drive to Orland every 4/5 weeks to hit Costco and Trader Joe’s.

Those machine gun America billboards along the turnpike have done their job - I’m thinking about living the automatic experience!

Has anyone been?

Was it worth the money?

I explored their website and was disappointed that they didn’t offer an experience with a Thompson machine gun. That coupled with the high prices has left me on the fence.

Graspher, for me I have a much better time at Shooters World. I got dragged to the Machine Gun Joint and even though everyone with me enjoyed it I didn't care for it one bit. Very uncomfortable set up. Just a whole lot of Hubbub - Bub!

I wasn't on the hook for the payment that day so I don't know specifically but it wasn't cheap.

The fumes were rough for me to handle. It might not bother anyone else but it goofed me up good.

If you do go I hope you have a blast like everybody else who was with me did. Good Luck.

Thanks Nucky- I’m starting to align with your position!

Wasn’t aware - thanks for that insight.

Having at one time used the 16 and the Pig, the cordite stays on your clothes and in your nose for awhile. Suggest you wear a face mask and change shirts afterwards. It is a rush so long as no one is returning fire your way lol.

Sounds like that would bug me a lot too.

Haven't shot a gun since I got out of service. Was not fun. Do not want a gun either.

I shot a fully automatic M-16 in Arizona. Kind of neat, but I liked it better in semi mode.

There is a store in Kissimmee on 192 or Bronson Hwy let you shoot every automatic gun including AK47 user by bad people over seas. Fun day out

Default Shooters World in Brownwood

[QUOTE=John_W;1707044]$50 an hour plus ammo, Shooters World at Brownwood in The Villages on 44A

Finding Shooters World during my LSV was icing on the cake, what a nice surprise! Just happen to have my own firearm and took the golf cart from the Alden Bungalows. Best indoor facility I’ve ever visited and very helpful staff. I’ll be back!
