Amazing range of weapons available
Dec 2019
Researched online and found this shooting club in Chiang Mai. What attracted me was the range of weapons available and the packaged deal. However, website booking was more catered to chinese tourist and required quite a number of information. I emailed them instead and received quite a prompt response. They wanted to provide transport to my hotel for pick-up but I had chosen to travel there myself. Rode a motorbike to their premise and it was not difficult to locate. Just follow the google map will do. Upon reaching, there were sufficient parking space and I was directed to the shop. At the shop, you can choose the package you want and the weapons. The staff will assign you an instructor who will prepare the weapons. I think the instructor thought that I might have some experience, so once he loaded the gun, he just handed the gun to me without much explanation. However, he is probably more than willing to explain further on how to use the weapon. The instructor volunteered to take photos and videos for you while you are shooting it. At the end of it, he also volunteered to take photos for you with each weapon. This is my first time handling those guns and I must say it is still an eye opener and experience. It was nice, but you probably got to watch out for your own safety if coming in groups. Do not play around the weapons. Shot 3 different rifles and the whole process from arriving to leaving took me less than an hour.

A nice shooting club Chiang Mai. After booking via phone, a private car was provided as transport from hotel to shooting club and back free of charge. No minimum spending was required. The shooting club is part of Thai Army area and some Thai soldiers can be seen shooting there. Facilities are adequate and the staffs are very friendly and accommodating although they speak limited English. I paid 1700baht for some basic instructions and 30 shots on the 9mm Glock. There was a pretty good selection of guns and packages. Pricing is as advertised on their website. Overall, I find it a good experience and a good way to release some stress!

If you have not been to a gun range before, go here. The staff are helpful and courteous and provide you with targets, ear muffs and whatever gun you want to fire. Instruction is given, but their English is not great so pay attention and read the safety instructions. It’s never cheap to fire guns, so you cant really moan about the price. As it is off season i did haggle and got some discount, water and drinks are available from a vending machine and you can take your targets home. A great experience

Wasn’t after any frills.
Always wanted to fire an automatic rifle at targets, and this completely fitted the bill. Short, sweet and to the point. Just turned up and was in and out in about 30 minutes.
Chose the Glock 18 sub machine gun on single shot mode. 30 rounds for 2,000 Baht. Didn’t care about the price. Loved it! Would have gladly stayed all day, but had other things to do that day.
Didn’t get a great deal of training, but had used air guns in the past, so already knew a bit about guns.
Great variety of other weapons, but was very happy with my choice.

Okay choice of guns. Staff loads guns for you and hands them over without any explanation regarding functioning or best use.
All (!) semi automatic pistols malfunctioned and had to be manually reloaded after every single shot. No word of apology for this bad experience.
Would not recommend going there.

This is a pretty average gun range. The venue itself is a little basic and instructors breezed through instructions despite being a first timer and were quite detached. He didnt take enough time to show me how to use the gun and i really struggled to understand how exactly i was supposed to use it. A shame.

Very little safety instructions especially as the bullets flew all over the place which was a little concerning.

Definitely not an interesting experience or worth the 1700 baht per person fee. You just go through your bullets as quickly as possible and then leave.

shooting club at chiang mai

The activity was okay, but the quality wasn't that good. I am not happy about the main picture because I think it should be me because I think I can shoot a lot better than that grandpa.

Great, safe and fun
Oct 2018 • Couples
For my new-husband and I, we have a tradition of testing of out gun ranges across various countries.

Shooting Club Chiang Mai were so attentive, recommending their favourites in the guns we had an interest in. All the instructors were professional, immaculate in their uniform and always ensured our safety - something you don't get at other ranges we've been to.

We tried the .35, .45 and the shotgun and it was incredible. The instructors gave us a safety intro into each gun, and a practice go unloaded.

It was a completely exhilarating experience, and not that it's a competition or that anyone is counting, I hit the targets more than my husband ;)

Great 1st experience, but feels pretty rushed
May 2018 • Solo
Had a go at both the .45 and .38 caliber course. Was a great 1st time experience at a shooting range. However, the staff at the place are quite lacking in the customer interaction department. The cashier had a disinterested look on her and merely asked what sort of course you wanted to go for, take the money, and pointed at a gun case. While I personally would have liked to just get down to business, I had expected at least a courteous smile, like from her 2 other colleagues.

The course supervisors themselves don't seem very keen to walk you through the basics. Did not even teach me how to load the pistols or safety mechanisms until I had to ask them myself (they just hand you the guns, and once you're done with one magazine, they will load it for you). I guess they have a lot of customers all the time, so they're trying to rush through so as not to increase the backlog. You do get the target sheet as a souvenir once done.

Overall, I had a great time, and would consider returning again IF there was a bit more enthusiasm from the staff and the price was a little more affordable. I wouldn't recommend coming here more than once unless you are OK burning through nearly 2,000 baht in 7-8 minutes per course.

TIP: Definitely go for the .45 caliber course, as the M1911 has just the right amount of recoil for a good experience. I did not enjoy the .38 caliber one, as the S&W revolver looked cool but felt weak, even for a beginner like yours truly.
