'Hands off' gun ranges in Europe?

Recommended Posts

I fancy doing a bit of shooting (a lot of shooting) and I was hoping to do it a bit cheaper than a return flight to the US.  I'm used to going to a US range, buying a load of ammo and then getting on with shooting without someone peering over my shoulder.  All the places I can see in Europe seem to cater to stag do kind of shooting experience, 10 rounds with this, 10 rounds with this, 5 with that, 1 with that e.t.c.

 

Is there somewhere like Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia e.t.c. where I turn up, establish I'm not a nutter, buy a thousand rounds (at a sensible cost) or so and burn through it throughout the day?  Or is this too much to ask?

I don't see why insurance and security would be an issue.  In the US, I just give them my driving licence and they give me a gun no problem.  Though maybe that's a problem with the US ha.  They often require 2 people minimum if you don't know them because suicide I guess.

 

Different countries I appreciate of course but I mean, I figure Europe to be a little more lax compared to the US.  Maybe I'm wrong.

I don't know, just thinking out loud. They not long ago had someone shoot his mother then himself if I recall, couple of years ago. I'd be surprised if a range let anyone who wasn't a member do their own thing really

Well dude thats the US where its easier to get hold of a gun that a Kinder Egg!

 

UK - No unless its clays

 

I have heard you can shoot a decent selection of guns in the Cezch Republic and Ukraine, though it not sure how lax/hands off it is.

 

Tbh I think you'll struggle to find a US style range in Europe, if you do let me know asap as thats my next holiday!!

Ha.  Well, I'll keep this topic updated if I do find anything.  Perhaps we can do an Arnies RS weekend.

 

I mean, if we get a handful of people up for it, get a special deal on a few thousand rounds, there has to be somewhere that will take our money.  Even if it is a bit more structured, a la Magpul type training.

 

I'm not too bothered really.  I just want to shoot a lot, not pay 50p/£1+ per round for something basic like 9mm.  Hell, pound a round is as expensive as the UK black market.  All this 10 shots is nonsense.  Like driving a Ferrari for a lap or 2.  By the time you've got accustomed to it, it's home time.

Exactly.

 

An Arnies RS weekend would be awesome, I *think* there is somewhere in Czech or Ukraine that does do an RS training weekend of sorts with fullbore rifles.

 

Ill see if I can find the company tomorrow!

 

I know the feeling. I was in Vegas couple years back, it was $25 for 15 12Gs! I buy 25 here for £4... Suppose they have to make money somehow...
