Shooting in Prague
Opportunities for shooting in Prague have increased enormously since I first came here and it’s much better organised than it used to be. No more having to hire a car with no sat-nav to try and find the corner of some field miles away from the city to get a few rounds from a pistol overseen by somebody who, shall we say, had only a basic knowledge of English.
Now it’s a case of being picked up at your hotel to be ferried to the range with professional English speaking instructors. You can take advantage of having a beer, after the shooting of course and companies will offer a range of weapons to try depending on a selected package.
For example lets take Prague Ranger. They are offering 5 packages with a variety of weapons and a set amount of ammunition for you to use on each. For example their “Rookie” package is great for somebody that has never used a weapon before as it allows you to try a Glock 17 pistol, a pump action shotgun and an AK47. Their mid-range offer is “Ranger” which takes the Rookie option and adds two more rifles i.e. the AR15 (M16) and the Dragunov sniper rifle. Thats a total of 40 shots across 5 weapons. And at the top of the range is what they call “Ultimate” which is the Ranger offer but with the addition of 2 more handguns, another rifle (Winchester) plus two close assault weapons like the Scorpion and the world-famous Uzi 9mm. Total 87 shots.
So it’s a fun few hours shooting in Prague in competition with your friends suitable for newbies up to gun club members who’ve never had the opportunity to fire large calibre pistols or rifles. It’s a full outdoor 500m range and they offer the pick-up and drop-off service.
