Florida, Miami Guide (B): Things to Do in Miami: Rifle Shooting

Yesterday afternoon, I decided to take a walk to Midtown. I had already taken the Metromover downtown and I was feeling brave. I got two blocks west of Biscayne when I realized I was in serious danger. I don’t know what’s scarier in those parts, the insane drivers or the leering pedestrians looking for a new iPhone. I had no intention of going up on a Tuesday like that, so I turned right around. The experience was a stark reminder that South Florida packs more than just 99 degree heat. Ironically, a few blocks down, you too can get trained in one of Florida’s favorite pastimes: shooting AK-47s like Scarface.

Lock & Load Miami is a shooting range that specializes in machine guns and assault rifles. It’s basically the Wynwood chic version of a normal shooting range. You don’t go there to practice shooting as a hobby; you go there to see what a 9 mm submachine gun feels like when it pops off 25 rounds in 4 seconds. I generally hate guns, gun ownership, and violence. But when my friends from Seattle visited a few years ago and wanted to go to Miami’s highest rated attraction on TripAdvisor, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try it.
