A trip to an indoor Las Vegas gun range is the perfect addition to any Vegas vacation. A stop at the Vegas Machine Gun Experience provides you the opportunity to shoot fully automatic weapons including popular assault rifles like the M4 and AK-47.

For most people, this opportunity will be the first they’ve had to shoot these assault rifles. Some may have experience with handguns and pistols and some may not have any experience with firearms at all. Luckily enough, our experienced instructors will be there to help you along every step of the way. If you want a bit of a head start though, here are a few tips for shooting an assault rifle at a Vegas gun range.

Shooting an Assault Rifle at our Vegas Gun Range

Grasp onto the Rifle

The first thing you need to do once you’ve stepped inside and are ready to shoot at our indoor gun range is know how to properly grip the rifle. An assault rifle grip can often times be similar to a handgun’s grip. The most important thing to remember to place your index finger over the trigger but not to touch the trigger until you’re ready to fire.  

Picking up the Rifle

Now that you have a feel for the grip, pick up the rifle and with your other hand grasp the barrel to keep it steady. When you pull the trigger, you’ll feel quite a bit of kick and recoil from the rifle so you’ll want to prop it up against your body. Place the butt end of the rifle to the front of your shoulder. You want the rifle to sit between your chest muscle and the ball of your shoulder for the best results.

Aiming the Rifle

All that’s left to do is for you to take aim and fire. Tilt your head down so that whichever one of your eyes is closest to the gun is now looking straight down the top of the barrel. Your cheek should also be in firmly in contact with the side of the gun stock. Focus on the front sight and squeeze the trigger.

Located just off the Strip next to the Discount Firearms and Ammo Vegas gun store, the Vegas Machine Gun Experience is the indoor shooting range you need to see. Schedule a shooting package with us today and experience the amazing for yourself.

When it comes to iconic firearms, few can rival the worldwide recognition of the AK-47 assault rifle. Originally developed by the old Soviet Union in the waning years of the Second World War, the AK-47’s history would go on to become one of the most widespread guns used throughout the world. Given its reliability and relatively low cost, the AK-47’s popularity at our Las Vegas gun range should come as no surprise.

Firearms Spotlight: AK-47 Assault Rifle

We feel that Samuel L. Jackson said it best in Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 feature, Jackie Brown when he exclaimed, “AK-47, the very best there is.” This is hardly false-placed excitement, as the AK-47 has proved over the last 70 years that it deserves every bit of those sentiments. Given its legendary reputation, there was absolutely, positively no way we were going to leave this amazing assault rifle out of our indoor Las Vegas gun range.

As we’ve already stated, in addition to its widespread use internationally, the AK-47 is also one of the biggest celebrity firearms in the world. You’ve definitely seen it’s unmistakeable wooden finish in countless films such as The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Rescue Dawn (2007), We Were Soldiers (2002), Operation Condor (1991) and really this list could go on for a while. On top of all that, there isn’t a self-respecting first-person shooter video game around that won’t include the AK-47 or one of its variants.

Next time you come to Vegas, beat the heat and stay away from those Las Vegas outdoor gun ranges and fire an AK-47 at the Vegas Machine Gun Experience. Our Clark County gun range is the perfect place for you to try out some of the best firearms in the world including the AK-47, M4, MP5 and much more. Whether you’re coming to our Las Vegas gun range for a bachelor party or just to kick off your vacation right, schedule a shooting package and experience the excitement at the Vegas Machine Gun Experience.

Have you ever wondered what the difference between a machine gun and an assault rifle is? Many people use the terms interchangeably, but this isn’t necessarily correct—from a technical standpoint. Assault rifles and machine guns are inherently different in terms of design and the type of ammunition used but are equally fun at our Vegas gun range.

Experience the Machine Guns

The term “machine gun” is sometimes used to describe any type of automatic weapon. A true machine gun, however, is a bullet hose that specializes in expelling large quantities of rounds downrange in an exceptionally short amount of time.

The main dividing factor that separates machines guns from automatic rifles lies in the ammunition and purpose for the firearms. While a machine gun and assault rifle can share the same type of ammunition, a machine gun is often belt-fed as opposed to magazine-fed. Additionally, a machine gun is most often used to control and shoot into a designated area, not a specific target.

Experience the Assault Rifles

Assault rifles are often mistaken for machine guns due to their ability to fire off rounds down our Las Vegas gun range quickly. Unlike machine guns, however, many assault rifles sport a selective-fire feature that allows for bursts of a few rounds at a time.

From a design standpoint, assault rifles do not utilize a belt-fed ammunition and opt for traditional rifle magazines instead. Also, assault rifles act as a contrast of sorts to a machine gun, placing more value on accuracy and the ability to isolate a single target as opposed to the machine gun’s ability to spray through a designated area.

Fortunately for you, there isn’t a decision between one or the other that needs to be made here at the Vegas Machine Gun Experience. We’ve got a great selection of assault rifles and machine guns waiting for you to try out. Whether it’s for your Las Vegas gun range bachelor or just a fun day out at a Clark County gun range, we know you’ll love your time at our indoor shooting range.

Luckily enough, if you follow this simple technique, you’ll show up all your friends when you arrive at our Vegas gun range.  

Breathing Techniques for Pistol Shooting

For many first time shooters, and even some experienced shooters, shooting a firearm comes down to eyeing your target in your sight picture and squeezing the trigger. While this is true in a general sense, there is much more to the process when it comes to shooting a handgun accurately. The quickest way to improve your handgun accuracy is with proper breathing technique.

You may be wondering what your breathing has to do with the accuracy of your shot, but they are much more connected than you might be aware of.

  • Never shoot while holding your breath.
  • Don’t shoot during an inhale or exhale.
  • DO shoot on a half breath.

It’s important to remember that your body needs oxygen to shoot accurately. This is why you never want to hold your breath to shoot. Maintain a steady pace with your breathing and try and shoot during a natural pause. Most people will pause for a couple of seconds between an inhale and exhale. These moments are the opportune time to squeeze down on your trigger. We recommend breathing in, letting some air out, and then shooting with some air still comfortably in your lungs.

Whether you’ve come to our Las Vegas gun range to celebrate a bachelor party or just for a weekend getaway, you’ll love the Vegas Machine Gun Experience. Book a gun range package today, and don’t forget your breathing when you get here.

Most of us have a bucket list of things we have to do at some point in our lives.
