M60 tops list of ten most popular weapons at MGV

A weapon so big it requires two or three people to operate it has topped the first-ever list of most popular weapons at Machine Guns Vegas.
“We thought it would be interesting to see what weapons were rented most often. I have to admit, the results were a little surprising,” said managing partner Genghis Cohen.
“Maybe they shouldn’t be, though. Many of the weapons that made the list include the high-firepower ones made popular by video games. They offer a bigger thrill than your usual handgun or machine gun,” he said.

The luxury machine gun shooting range opened in February 2012 at 3501 Aldebaran Ave. off Spring Mountain Road, just minutes off The Strip.   The 10,000-square-foot facility includes a luxurious alcohol-free lounge, a wide assortment of weapons, complimentary refreshments and staff who are NRA-certified instructors.   It includes a luxurious alcohol-free lounge, indoor shooting range with two private firing lanes, large plasma TVs and complimentary refreshments.
