So I am more than just a little skeptical about this place given that A)it is in Vegas and that town has a reputation for less than respectable treatment of chicks and B) they use the phrase ‘stunning gun girls’ (barf). I almost clicked off the page when I saw that phrase. I mean, come on… really? Justified, however, by the fact that I need to keep up with gun news across the country, I continued reading. Admittedly, I rolled my eyes when I read most of the article, but then it caught me. See below:
Only in America: Las Vegas to open ‘ultra gun lounge’ where guests are trained by ‘gun girls’
Last updated at 2:40 PM on 26th October 2011
But now it seems that visitors to Sin City will be able to try their hand at another, rather more dangerous pastime — shooting automatic weapons.
Before the year is out, America’s most notorious city will see the doors open on a club where guests will be allowed — and encouraged — to fire high-powered rifles.
Glamourising gun culture: A message on the website for Machine Guns Vegas tells would-be guests to ‘Rent a gun & buy a bullet’
The brainchild of Genghis Cohen, the impresario behind Tabu, an infamous club at the city’s MGM Grand Hotel, Machine Guns Vegas is set to open on December 15.
Situated just behind the Mirage Hotel near the city’s central Strip, Las Vegas’s first ‘ultra gun lounge’ will glamourise the use of firearms.
Guests will be taught how to fire weapons by ‘stunning gun girls’.
‘The world is now ready for a “Gun Lounge”,’ Mr Cohen says. ‘Stunning “Gun-Girls” trained in gun-handling [will] look after VIP guests.’
Mr Cohen is quick to dismiss any safety concerns, commenting that:
‘All Machine Guns Vegas girls are certified Range Safety Officers through the National Rifle Association.’
And while the ‘lounge’ will have a luxurious atmosphere, alcohol will not be allowed on site.
(Here comes the good part. Drum roll please…)
However, the club will actively link gun use to fashion and high-end brands.
‘Louis Vuitton and Prada accessories for your guns and ammunition are available for purchase’, Mr Cohen continues.
And that, my firearm fashionistas, is all I needed to hear. I have long dreamed of owning a Gucci gun rug or a Louie range bag. Could my dreams be coming true? I plan to check it out while I am at SHOT show this year. Until then, I will continue to long for the day when those mythical haute couture gun accessories become a reality. Who’s with me?
