“Lock and Load Machine Gun Experience - FANTASTIC!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

This is an absolutely FANTASTIC experience! If you are thinking of booking and have any doubts at all let me see if I can help you. My family and I (3 kids) came over from the UK and had some concerns - so lets tick these off:
- the local area is fine - feels very safe - and its easy to find
- car park is secure and safe
- the facility is lovely - bright and airy and in very good condition (you will be surprised when you walk through the small front door!) - and they were happy for my 8 year old to run around with the replica guns and enjoy himself with mum while we were on the range
- staff are really friendly and helpful - absolutely no hard sell or push
- our instructor Mike (a huge 'Thanks' to you Mike) was super experienced, highly professional and totally SAFE - and trained each of us differently according to what we needed
- firearms are in great condition and the range is top class

3 of us all did a machine gun/handgun package - dad and 2 kids (15 and 13) and all had a brilliant time.

There is a reason that this place is so high in the Trip Advisor ratings!
Book it and have fun.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

What a wonderful experience. Even though I have been around guns all my life, I must say this was a great experience. Great satisfaction for a reasonable price. All instructors are very knowledgeable and Andy and Nicole welcome their customers with a smile. I would recommend you put this on your lists of things to do while visiting the Miami area. Take a camera and record the event. You won't regret it.;

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

To be honest, I was very nervous because it was my first time at a shooting range. But it was amazing! The staff is friendly and professional and especially Mike was very good at helping us. You can tell he is genuinely enthusiastic about training at Lock & Load. We'll definitely be back!

“Fun experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

#1 On tripadvisor?
I know why!

It was an amazing and fun experience.
The prices aren't cheap and I thought: "hey why not, once in a life time."
But after the shooting I said to myself if I'm back in Miami I'll come back to lock and load!
