Always wanted to shoot 9mm semi auto pistol as completely illegal in the uk. Great experience but very pricey 25 bullets and a quick safety tutorial for around £50. Wanted to shoot more but not prepared to spend another 15-20 pounds for 25 bullets. The session was over in a flash. If you want to have a go its much... More

The facilities and grounds are really well kept and professional. The admin was straightforward. You need to provide local I.D or a passport and pay about 255 dirhams for 25 rounds (then about 75 for another 25). As a first-timer I had a safety briefing, which was informative. Subsequently it was a bit of a let down. All shooting lanes... More

There is nothing I didn't like about the place. Living in the UK, it is hard to find places like this where you can just register with your passport and fire real weapons. So I gave it a go and shot live 9mm rounds. Entry fee is AED275 and for an additional AED75 you can purchase 25 bullets to shoot.... More

I used the gun first time. Great experience. The instructors are very friendly and helpful. Minimum age to go is 12 years. My elder son could not shoot as he was a week younger to 12. Good for family outings too. My wife enjoyed.

Took by future wife to the range for her first time along with my sister and her friend. After giving the basic safety instructions to the group we all took turns in our firing lanes. The instructors were behind us all the time providing help and assistance and watching out for our safety. I got to shoot two pistols that... More

Very proffessional,Instructers were very friendly and informative. The range was very good as was the equipment.Of course the safety aspects was strictly adhered to. Certainly something to try if you have not done pistol shooting before. I would certainly go again.

Thoroughly recommend a visit to Caracal. We had a great time shooting 9mm semi automatic handguns. I've never held a gun before, so was a bit nervous, but the staff are really friendly and give you a comprehensive safety briefing first, introducing you to the gun and teaching you how to hold it and sight correctly. We spent a couple... More

Access to the indoor club's recreation facilities is permitted to anyone. The staff is very welcoming. They explain the safety rules, assist you whenever needed.

Had a great time today at the Caracal Shooting Club, my father and I decided to go and learn how to shoot at the facility. We started out a safety talk from Kenneth, who was excellent and was professional and very good at explaining and teaching us - as well as answering our questions. After the briefing we went into...
