Chicago is a tourist destination for many Americans and foreigners. Chicago has an assortment of top museums and cultural attractions. Chicago has many bridges crossing back and forth over the Chicago River which can make it a very hot humid place to be in the summer months. Day trips away from the city provides relief from this city heat and also offers unique activities not found in the city limits. Nothing better than a relaxing motor coach ride for a day of shooing weapons at a range and then a tour of a working Winery, Brewery and Distillery for a tasting menu of libations.
Point Blank Shooting Range and Sport Club
Just a few hours away by luxury motor coach from Chicago is Benton Harbor, Michigan, home of the Point Blank Shooting Range and Sport Club. Enjoy 1.5 hours firing 55 rounds thru a AK-47, Shotgun and Pistol. You will receive proper firearm instruction by professional one on one instruction. It is a perfect way to introduce the novice to firearms. At the range, the best marksman will receive a prize for most accurate shooting and all will be able to take home their target for display of their prowess. After the shooting, we will sit down to a BBQ lunch before heading to the Round Barn Winery, Brewery, and Distillery.
