As a responsible gun owner, you might visit your local shooting range on a regular basis to practice and improve your skills. It’s still an exciting feeling to step into the stall, load your firearm, and try to hit that elusive bullseye target. Or maybe you live on a large country property where you can routinely hit some targets outdoors in the wild to keep your shooting skills sharp. That’s always a great way to improve your accuracy.
But we’ve discovered an exceptional shooting experience — something that will get your blood pumping to put a huge victorious smile on your face. Trust us, it’s unforgettable.
Did you know that there’s a destination you can go that will allow you to shoot while flying in a helicopter? It’s in Las Vegas of course baby!
You can do anything in Vegas, but who knew that there was such an exciting shooting destination where the adrenaline of actually shooting while flying through the desert in a helicopter is yours for the taking. Get packing for the shooting experience to rival all others.
Gunship Helicopters is the Premier Vegas Shooting Range Vacation
When you are planning your next gambling trip to Las Vegas, as a gun enthusiast, you’ll probably want to set aside a day to explore everything that Gunship Helicopters has to offer. This is a 71 acre shooting range where you can shoot a machine gun out of a helicopter. It’s truly a thrilling experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. This is the perfect idea for a bachelor party excursion or weekend getaway.
You Start With a Ground Simulation
Of course, there is some training involved before the staff sends you right up in the helicopter with an automatic weapon. They do welcome new shooters and even teens as young as 15-years-old. So, this could be a family trip if you have older children who might be game for this type of experience. It’s certainly more exciting than the usual family vacations to the Grand Canyon.
Before you start flying the friendly skies, the staff will show you different ground simulations, and give you a pre-flight mission briefing before you board the chopper to fulfill your Rambo-style fantasies.
A Private Shooting Range Over the Mojave Desert
Not only is it beautiful to fly above the desert in this open door helicopter experience, but you’ll be using a mounted belt-fed M249 Saw. The gun itself has the accuracy of a typical rifle with the volume shooting of a real machine gun. The targets that you are gunning for are various steel airplanes on the ground, reactionary targets, couches, and even some zombies to really get that end of the world apocalypse vibe rocking. How cool is that?
This is nothing like the shooting range in your hometown. This is an adrenaline rush of pure action hero mentality. You’ll feel like the king of the world after you and your buddies spend a day at Gunship Helicopters.
