2018 Gun Show Loophole Tour Goal ?

We found a cool thing about Google Maps
If you go to some buildings you can walk right inside (virtually)

Our Tour of Battlefield Vegas in 2015

So we went inside the BattleField Vegas machine Gun rental building and into their LARGE gun vault and took a virtual look around, it is very cool, and ANYONE can do it with their connection to google maps

so we have a new goal for 2018 Gun Show Loophole Tour, to do 360 degree video tours of the Firearms Museums of the USA

Stay tuned for more as we plan out and pursue this new goal for the Gun Show Loophole Tour

We found a inside the building tour of Battlefield Vegas the indoor Machine Gun Shooting Experience in Las Vegas, Nevada
