  • Next time you're in Vegas...

    If you want to do the machinegun thing there's plenty of places that'll take your money.
    A bit too exy if you ask me.
    Yeah you get to shoot things you can't shoot here, but after you've held that trigger down for more than a few seconds then what are you gonna do with the rest of your day?

    Hire a car and take a thifty minute drive towards Boulder City.
    Turn south before you get to Boulder and you'll come across the Desert Hills Shooting Club.

    This place caters for your particular shooting vice, be it Machine gun, Pistol or Shotgun.
    Since we're in the Shotgun section, let's have a look at their layout.

    There's a skeet ground and a DTL layout but we were there to shoot some sporting.

    There's 20 different stands to have a go at.
    We probably did about 3/4 of them, bypassing the ones that looked a bit easy.

    Every shooting stand has a Pergola to shoot from - I Imagine it gets a bit hot here in the middle of summer.

    We found enough variety to keep us shooting.

    The whole system is run with a credit card that you load up with at the clubhouse.
    You simply buy the amount of targets you want to shoot, insert the card in the shooting stand and shoot till your credit is done.
    Each stand had three traps and the sequence could be switched to the traps you wanted to use.

    We were recommended a golf cart to get around the course - certainly may carrying the guns and ammo easier.

    The clubhouse is certainly comfortable enough if you needed to leave the non-shooters in your party at the bar.

    And if you're thirst hasn't been satiated by a few hundred clays, they do have pistol and rifle ranges to spend your money at.

    As we were leaving they had a .50 cal set up.
    We watched as some tourist blew up an old taxi!
    It was full of tannerite or some other explosive and went off with a bit of a bang.
    The missus jumped, the kids cheered and we went to have lunch at a little spot recommended by one of the guys from the club.

    You can go for a shoot here in the morning and then head over to the Hoover dam in the afternoon which is just up the road a bit further.
    Stop at the South West Diner for some lunch - It'll be a better meal than you get in Vegas and your moonshine is served by the jar.

      Of course not
      The O/U fitted him - this one was a bit long in the LOP.
