RAPID CITY (AP) — If firing a machine gun is on your bucket list, the Smoking Gun Range & Training Center is the only place in Western South Dakota to do it legally.

The Rapid City Journal reports the range opened in September in a newly decked-out building on Interstate 90 just east of Rapid City.

It has a dozen 25-yard firing lanes with filtered air, sound reduction, bullet-proof glass between lanes, lighted range-finders and a target system.

Besides the usual handguns and rifles, owner Kim Smith offers patrons the opportunity to shoot one of two $12,000 machine guns he bought to add kick to his new establishment. He says "everybody wants to shoot a machine gun once in their life."
