Wednesday Weapons – A bucket list candidate

Ever since the movie The Bucket List, people have been creating them. Most people who sheepishly admit to having a bucket list have lame, gay stuff on it.

While researching an idea I came across the first place that I really want to go to, like urgently. It is now my first bucket list candidate: A Visit to The Scottsdale Gun Club in Arizona.

Look at this place in all its awesomeness.

Between the classes, conferences, training and all the other amenities Scottsdale Gun Club offers, we hope you find time to take advantage of our 32 shooting lanes. We split these lanes into 4 bays of 8 lanes.

We?ve spared no expense for your comfort and safety on our firing range. Our four bays are equipped with a number of state-of-the-art features. Each of the 32 lanes has sound dampening technology to reduce the dB levels, a user-friendly touch screen control panel, a target system that rotates 360? for enhanced practice scenarios, programmable target movement, and numerous pre-programmed regimens with random edging. Each bay utilizes 45 air filters providing you with cool, clean air all year round. Our shooting lanes are completely rifle capable and can be shot with any firearm that generates less than 8100 foot pounds of muzzle energy!

Not only that, they have Handgun, Long gun and?Machine-gun rentals. You can rent a Tommy gun for $65/hr or an M60 for $125/hr and everything in between. Given an M60’s cyclic rate is 600 rounds per minute I doubt that rate includes the many thousands of rounds of belt fed awesomeness that you could put down range in an hour.

HTey have a gunsmith service and a shop at the club. For tons of beautiful images visit their gallery.

Their membership fees are reasonable for access to all the facilities it is on $59.95 a month for a family membership or $39.95 for individuals. They have military and police memberships available as well for just $29.95 per month…..and look at what they get for that
