This is such a fun place to go if you want to shoot similar guns to the "Call of Duty" guns. (Except no machine guns). The instructors there are so nice and friendly and patient.

Went there and tried out the 1911 colt. 45 and G2 Roni. It was a good experience to shoot those weapons. Would try other weapons next time.
