Does skill level matter for shooting at Lock & Load Miami?

Am I allowed to shoot a gun if I’m not from the United States?
Do I need a special license or permit to do the machine gun experience?
No, you do not need any type of firearms license for the machine gun experience. You just need to show up with a valid ID.

Yes, you must be 18 years of age with a valid ID to shoot. Children must be 12 or older with a parent or legal guardian.
