    Ask for Chandler!
    So fun! My safety instructor was Chandler and I highly recommend him. He gives clear instructions, doesn't rush you, and provides great customer service. When my gun jammed, he even added an extra magazine of ammo for free! A classy move that didn't go unnoticed.

    Amazing First Timer Experience
    This location has its own parking which for Wynwood is amazing. Went for my boyfriend’s birthday and purchased the Israel package. Our supervisor, Will, was very informative and told us some great stories. Will let my boyfriend shoot a barrett 50 cal at a coin as an extra for his birthday too! Great experience

    Machine Gun Experience at Lock and Load
    Came to Miami for a few days and took the opportunity to go to the range. Facilities and Museum were very cool and staff were very friendly. Big thank you to Will for his informative lessons on both firearms history and handling, especially when it came to the full auto experience. Overall, a great time and have every intention of coming back :)

    What a great time!
    I had a wonderful experience as soon as I stepped in. The girls at the counter were friendly, helpful, and knew their stuff. I gladly paid for my Express package + American sniper experience and while I was waiting (which was maybe 5mins) I got to see the exhibitions. My instructor was Will and he was phenomenal. I most definitely will return for the coin challenge. A+

    Great experience that is worth the money!
    Today I was at Lock&Load Miami to shoot a bunch of guns which are basically unavailable in Germany. Before I travelled to Miami I contacted the staff and got a very friendly reply which basically said: Just come in, select your guns and you are ready to go! And guess what: It was exactly like that! The friendly woman an the counter explained every step of the ordering process for a dummy like me. Then a few minutes later the shooting instructor Will introduced himself to me. After a few neccessary and very easy to understand safety instructions we put on the sagety equipment and enteres the range. He explained every gun and the background of the guns. So I shot all the famous stuff I wanted: P90, Steyr AUG, AK47, M4A2, M1 Garand and a .50 cal Barrett M95. What a great opportunity to experience these guns first hand! Only thing that I regret: I wish I had more time to spend there. Even though it‘s not cheap, it is definitivly worth the money. Thanks to Will and everyone else from the Lock & Load Crew for offering this experience!

    The best shooting range in Miami
    Lock & Load is a great place to get some fun. We went for a birthday celebration shooting and we had amazing time with our instructor Will. The place is clean, well equipped with all different styles of weapons and it’s priced fairly. This is my second time going there and definitely not the last.

    Meanwhile at the range…
    Fantastic experience! A terrific range with excellent staff with a great knowledge base, these people really know their stuff. Everyone was very accommodating, my wife joined me on the range and although she wasn’t shooting she felt very included as the instructor took time to explain everything to her as well. This will definitely be my “must go to” the next time I’m in Miami. Many, many thanks.

    Must stop in Miami.
    Far exceeded my expectations. Spent a full hour with Will who was extremely knowledgeable, informative, and fully committed to giving us the best experience. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend as a very unique and educational experience.

It was a fantastic experience going there... People in there are very nice and helpful plus they have instructors both for english and spanish speakers. In my opinion this experience is worth every cent, specially if it's your first time shooting, I strongly recommend it to everyone.

As germans we have never used a gun bevor. Brian explained us everything from the holding of a gun to the finally shooting. We choosed the basic packages and it was so much fun! The price may seem a little high but its definitely worth the money, its not just shooting you also get instructions to the different guns and how to use them safe.
Next time when I visit Miami I will come again and try other types of weapons! The whole staff is very kind and the waiting area is like a museum with so much different weapons. We truly enjoyed our visit and recommend this experience!

Max was really great at making us comfortable and handling a newbie and a semi-experienced shooter. Very calm and great to load all of the weapons. Front desk person (Veronica) was very patient and helpful. It’s not cheap, but neither is running an operation like this and you can shoot guns that only the special forces have access to. Loved the .50 cal and the silencer. Highly recommend, we actually came in once and went to the museum for free and regretted not shooting - now that’s rectified. Goes to show you a patient customer experience pays off!

I recommend lock and load Miami to anyone who might be even mildly interested in guns. They have packages for all ages. Even my little brother (13) got to shoot some amazing fully automatic 9 mm guns. Our instructor Will taught us all about gun safety and the history behind each firearm. In the lobby there is a museum where I can hold a bunch of prop guns and take some amazing pictures. Lock and load Miami is no joke one of the coolest places I’ve ever been and I will definitely go there again someday.

As soon as you walk in it’s a great experience. I love the waiting area and unlike a lot of other gun ranges in Miami this teams values your business. We worked with Max who was patient, detailed, super safe, and really made the experience amazing. I was always nervous about shooting machine guns but he made you feel very confident and sure. We will definitely be going back and we’ve already told a bunch of friends. Thank you Lock & Loaded. #TeamMax

My Husband (Brent) & I visited Lock & Load, Miami on the last day of our holiday. Brent wanted to shoot but I was just a guest & it was brilliant! Brent chose a machine gun package plus a Glock add on. Fabian was Brent's instructor & he was amazing, very informative, knowledgeable & reassuring, thank you Fabian for making our last day here one Brent nor I will forget! We would both highly recommend Lock & Load for anyone looking for a shooting experience where you will gain knowledge along with fun!!!

First and for most thank you guys for having me and showing me such a good time. I also would have to s/o to the homie Kevin for the experience. He's super knowledgeable about firearms and we also shared a few laughs and stories pertaining to them as well. By the way the fact that you get a brief history of the gun your going to shoot is dope. Sorry for not remembering your names, but the two ladies at the counter were very professional and respectful. Thanks again for your time and thanks for the stickers!

Lock and Load Miami is awesome! Of course being able to shoot a variety of fully automatic firearms is the main appeal, but this place is even more than that. It is cool to see the history of firearms in the museum and handle near identical replicas to get a feel for each of them. Our instructor Will was very informative about the history of each gun we fired and how to properly handle them, extremely professional and also down to earth. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is thinking about doing it, both beginners and more experienced shooters. Definitely an experience we will not forget.

Chris was extremely professional and made us feel safe for our first time in a shooting range. He explained with great detail the history of all the guns we fired. Chris made our experience want us to visit again. Highly recommended.

Before today I had never fired a gun. I was a bit scared to be honest. However, Lock & Load Miami made it safe, fun, and a very nice learning experience. My instructor (Will) was top notch. He knew his gun history and guided us very throughly on how to safely fire the guns (he talks Spanish as well 🇪🇸). I took the 007 package which was loads of fun and power, but any package seems amazing as well !!! I will totally come back, maybe fire a sniper rifle.

It’s truly an experience for everyone. I’ve been coming to Miami for vacations for a while and this is one of the bests turist attractions in the county.

Antes de hoy día nunca había disparado una pistola. Estaba un poco nervioso para ser honesto. Pero Lock & Load Miami hizo esta experiencia segura, divertida, y educativa. Mi instructor (Will) era de alta calibre. Sabía sobre sus armas y era bien minucioso en seguridad sobre las pistolas en como usarlas. Yo tome el paquete 007 que fue extremadamente divertido y poderoso, pero cualquier paquete se ve excelente !!! Voy a venir de nuevo de todas maneras

Esta seriamente es una experiencia necesaria para cualquier persona. He estaba viniendo a vacacionar a Miami desde hace tiempo y tengo que decir que esta es una de las mejores atracciones turistas del condado.
