I came to L&L for the second time, and it was even better than the first time! The instructor Max was very cool, he showed me everything so that for a beginner like myself it was pretty easy! I had a revolver, a MP5, AK47 and a benelli shotgun. Very good choice, so much fun! It's cool to shoot automatic... More

We had been planning to do this for months before travelling to Miami but we didn't really know how to get here (we thought maybe taxi). As a tourist I would recommend getting the big bus (hop on hop off) as the line to Art Deco goes straight to Lock & Load (wait to go past it, a few stops... More

Very fun to shoot full auto, something not allowed in most countries. This the upside of the gun madness in the US. Brian was the greatest instructor. Guns vary widely, from smooth to violent. Ask before choosing. A but expensive, quite easy to drop $200 if not more.

For starters the place itself it's super cool! All the gun replicas at hand, couches to hang out, and a chopper hanging from the ceiling. You get to choose your gun "package" from a large variety of machine guns, shotguns, rifles, and handguns. A minimum of 3 machine guns is required, but trust me when I say that when you... More

This was my first experience at a gun range. My instructor BRIAN made me feel very comfortable while maintaining a professional demeanor. I enjoyed myself immensely. It was a treat from a very close friend after a trying day...needless to say, I relieved some much needed stress. I will definitely be visiting again. I recommend this range to beginners on... More

We were supervised by Brian, a very kind and skilled instructor. He gave us a litte background of the weapons, as well as some nice to know facts. It was by far the most exiting moment of our trip!

During spring break in south Florida we scheduled a priority appointment for my 17 year old son. From the time we entered the building til the time we left, customer service was top notch. The instructor was fantastic, great job at explaining everything to my son. At the time of check in, we rented a Go Pro to video the... More
