Local Adventurer Link-Up and Feature: Outdoor shooting ranges in Las Vegas.

Welcome to the Local Adventurer Link Up #8. The purpose of this weekly link up is to foster gratitude for the place you live, show others great local experiences that they might never find as a tourist, and to inspire others to explore and be present wherever they are. Our local adventure this week is at an outdoor Las Vegas Shooting Range!

DISCOVERY CONSISTS NOT OF SEEKING NEW LANDS BUT SEEING WITH NEW EYES.


I always thought that when people talked about shooting guns in the desert, they just took their guns and drove out to some random location to do it. I had no idea there were actual outdoor gun ranges in the desert where people generally go to for target practice.

Shooting guns is especially popular in Las Vegas / Nevada, because it’s one of the few states where it’s legal to shoot semi automatic weapons. We shot an AR-15 for the first time! Thanks Kyle and Will for teaching me how! :) One of our friends also has an AK, so we can’t wait to go out and shoot with it!

  1. How fun! Didn’t know that was there! My bro and SIL would love it! Thanks!

  2. That’s look so much fun, I’ve always fancied shooting but since guns are illegal here I never have :-)

  3. Oh that looks like so much fun! We love going to the indoor one, so now we will have to try an outdoor!!

  4. We’ve gone to indoor ranges before and it was a lot of fun. It’s very loud though, and quite stimulating.

    1. It is really loud. It’s a little shocking at the very beginning, but I’m always surprised how quickly I get used to the sound. :)

  5. I think shooting guns is so much fun! I’m from a small town so it’s just a way of life.

    1. It really is so much fun! In georgia, we have friends who go pumpkin shooting – carving with guns after nobody needs pumpkins anymore.

  6. I’ve only shot a handgun, but shooting a semi-automatic would be cool!

  7. Never shot anything in my life scares the Jesus outa me

    1. It’s not as bad as you think! It scared me too the first time I went, but after that it was pretty fun. :)

  8. Going to the range is something I’ve been meaning to try for the longest time. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. That’s cool! I’ve been wanting to go to a shooting range for so long now! And thanks for the link-up, btw.

  10. That looks so much fun! I would love to be able to try to do some shooting myself :)

  11. I love. love. LOVE. gun ranges!

      1. we have a few gun ranges in town so we switch it up – and then my grandfather has a few acres so we go out there to shoot :)

  12. I went shooting on my birthday! It was so fun. I love outdoors and fun thing so I did enjoy your post. Thanks for sharing pretty lady!.

  13. What fun! My boyfriend’s family lives in rural Northern California, and I’ve gotten to shoot a variety of guns with them up there. My favorite is definitely the double-barrel stagecoach shotgun because I feel like a old-west badass.

  14. So fun! Your photos are gorgeous!

  15. This looks like a great time, every time I go shooting I usually end up squealing every time I shoot the gun.

    1. squealing because you’re afraid? it definitely takes some time getting used to! i was scared the first time i went for sure.

  16. This looks like so much fun -but I’m a teensy bit scared of shooting!

    1. I was actually scared the first time I went to an indoor shooting range, but after a few times I saw that everyone was shooting responsibly and as long as you know how to be safe, you won’t be scared anymore. At least in my experience :)

  17. I really love shooting at the range and would love to in Las Vegas!

  18. Everyone needs a little action hero/heroine style date night in their life! :D

      1. The last time I was home, my dad, my husband, and I went to an indoor shooting range to try out a range of different weapons – worst shooter had to buy dinner :)

          1. That goes back and forth between me and my husband, honestly. There’s no competition with my dad – he’s a dead eye.

  19. Whoa, this must have been an interesting date night!! <3

    1. It really was! :) We have been trying to think outside the box this year… instead of just a dinner and a movie.

  20. My husband would love this for a date night!

  21. We’ve had this on our list of date night adventures for a while! Can’t believe you braved the heat wave!

    1. It’s so much fun! I hope you get to go. :) It actually wasn’t too bad. We brought a portable canopy, and since vegas has dry heat, we felt good in the shade. The issue with that was that it was super windy, so we spent a good amount of time trying to keep the canopy from flying away.

  22. I’ll be going to a shooting range soon. I’m going to be taking concealed carry classes too.

    1. Interesting! :) We pretty much only shoot recreationally. I don’t own a gun yet, so I haven’t taken any concealed carry classes.. but if we ever do, I’ll have to ask you about your classes.

  23. hmmm i don’t think this is my cup of tea …

  24. Well, once more I had to resort to doing a “local adventure” from the archives and post something from a place I no longer live. Next week I should have something better… And by better I mean currently local.

  25. This looks so cool! I’ve never shot a gun, bu I want to at least try it some day!

    xo, Hima

    1. I think the first time I tried, I was actually a bit scared.. but the next few times it became fun! Let me know when you try it!
