“awesome experience, amazing machine guns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Today i went down to Lock & Load Miami with my two cousins. It was the first time i held a gun in years. To ge honest, i was a bit nervous when we got there but tue instructors are great.

They have a very wide array of machine guns and pistols to pick from. Even some machine guns such as the HK 416D which was used in the Osama Bin Laden operation or the HK MP7 wich you wont find in any other gun range in the world.

The instructors are awesome. All of theme are or were members of the military forces. They are very knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable through the process of shooting. Brian, our instructor, explained everything about the guns i used; from some history amd anecdotes about the gun to the process of arming it amd shooting.

I would definitely return to do some more shooting and would definitely recommend Lock and Load Miami to anyone whether you are an experienced shooter or a newbie. I am even going to take my girlfriend there next week.

“One of a Kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

I've had the opportunity to visit many shooting ranges in my life, and believe me when I tell you this is the nicest and warmest place that I've been. For starters; this place is amazing and the environment is great. All of the instructors are very professional and helpful, however me and my friend were very lucky to have Brian, he is the most knowledgeable and funniest guy you could imagine!! Want to laugh out loud? Ask for this guy!

Places like this, makes you want to visit frequently.

Have some free time? Lock & Load people!!

“Must do excursion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Simple really Miami lock and load was one of the best experiences of our holiday, not only were the staff extremely helpful on which package to choose. We were given a brilliant instructor called Albert who made the experience even more fun than it already was with his stories and tutorials towards the shooting.
Must do experience great hospitality and worth every dollar!

“Past all expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Hidden away amongst the amazing graffiti work of the Wynwood neighbourhood is this absolute gem! Travelled to Miami for the first time with 3 other friends and top of our "to do" list was visit this gun range! We was instantly welcomed as we entered the roomy air conditioned range- not the usually pushy sales technique but a nice "Have a look around, heres the "menu" and give me a call if you decide you want to shoot" After posing with various guns on display we decided on a few packages - roughly around $200 each for 4 guns x 25rounds, well worth the money! We was then introduced to our instructor ALBERT, This is the man!! A real american all action guy! After 10/15mins chatting/ribbing each other the real action got underway, being from the UK obviously we had no shooting experience which is where Albert really came into his own, his hands on buddy technique really makes you feel at ease and before we knew it we was firing off AK47's without "Shooting planes out the sky" as Albert put it.

I would 100% recommend this to anyone visiting Miami, gun lover or not - the whole experience you'll remember forever.

There was Groups of guys, Couples, Women, the way this operation is run its welcoming,fun and safe for all.
