This is such a fun place to go if you want to shoot similar guns to the "Call of Duty" guns. (Except no machine guns). The instructors there are so nice and friendly and patient.

Had never fired a pistol before, so went and tried two different guns - a small calibre Walther to start, followed by the Glock 9mm. The staff were helpful and encouraging, and stepped through the process of loading, holding, aiming and firing. You will understandably...More
