LeBron James has been well known for his deadly accurate shot on the basketball court during his career. In fact, the Heat star is shooting a career best .588 on field goals this season.  

But on January 2nd, James ventured into a different type of shooting when he made a visit to Lock & Load Miami Machine Gun Experience & Range in Miami.
 
In a video made available on YouTube by Lock & Load, James can be seen firing off rounds from a M249 SAW Belt-Fed Machine Gun which is part of the Special Forces USA Package, according to the range’s website.

James, who was joined by his wife at the range, flashes a smile after firing the massive machine gun in the video.

In another video uploaded by the range, James tries his hand with an H&K MP5. Amazingly in both cases, there is little to no recoil, showing the immense strength of the star.

"The high-end venue caters to members and guests who want to experience the adrenaline rush of a fully automatic firearms experience in a safe and controlled environment," the range's website reads.

It's been a busy week for James off the court as he was also carded at a hotel bar in Orlando by a bartender while watching the Orange Bowl on TV.

James, who is 29 and therefore eight years over the drinking limit, didn’t exclaim "Do you know who I am?" Instead, he simply told the bartender "Look at my beard!" according to the Miami Herald.  

In the end, James laughed off the moment and got his drink.
