“Challenging fun!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We had read a little about the target shooting on the island and thought we'd give it a go. It is situated in Palm Valley just before the airport and there are a range of weapons to choose from as well as prices for the various shooting packages. The guys running the show know their stuff and it is quite safe for both young and old. It is not cheap but nothing on the island is. I recommend a visit as you'll be surprised at how much skill is involved and the satisfaction you'll feel afterward.

“My partner LOVED it”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This was my partners third time shooting and he loved it. There are several packages you can choose from that vary in price and the amount of guns/bullets you shoot. He did the ultimate package ($180) and really enjoyed it. You get a new target for each gun and of course you get to take all your targets home with you. The instructors were really helpful and spent lots of time with him and his brother. If your going and not participating definitely take a magazine or something to occupy yourself for an hour or two. The smaller packages obviously don't take as long. Would definitely recommend if your a keen shooter or an absolute beginner. There were families there with children having a go.

“Great fun”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

My husband used the rifle range and he loved it. He has only ever used a gun once before, so after signing in, the staff explained what is included in the price. He opted to shoot 2 different types of guns, a pistol and a rifle. You are shown how to load and unload a gun and tips on hitting your taget's bulleye. You also get to keep your targets. I asked about all the different types of guns and what the difference is and it was all explained to me, it was very informative.
