    My son went there a few months back and had a blast.

    The Red Chinese military had (still has?) a business like this with mostly Japanese tourists. (60 Minutes did a piece on it.) In their case, machine guns are for the peons; the higher you are on the corporate ladder, the bigger the weapon. So the corp. VP gets to shoot maybe an anti-tank missile. There is, of course, a fat markup on the price of the ammo. This very well could have been the introduction to capitalism for the Chinese.

    Worked for a consulting firm that had a contract on Guam. There are lots of Japanese tourists there (and lots of rusting Japanese military relics). The local bar was doing a booming business letting the tourists dress up in western (Hollywood oaters) garb and shoot revolvers at some cheesy “Wild West” targets.
