Tourists made very welcome

In most of the UK people cannot shoot a handgun. Reserved for police and military. (Northern Ireland is the exception.)
This place allows tourists from UK and elsewhere to enjoy shooting handguns and bigger.
Visiting from the UK we had a great time at City Guns. Able to shoot a variety of guns for a reasonable charge. Instruction and guidance makes this suitable for beginners.
You can even bring kids aged 10-17 for a shooting experience with real guns under expert supervision.
Friendly reception, great instruction and oversight from Ashley. And Sean in the shop is very likeable and helpful.
Street parking nearby is 60min max so we parked in a multi-story on Strand Street (orange signs). When we arrived it seems the venue has its own free parking, so do enquire.
We will be back.

Good place to get hands on real guns for fun

My son discovered this place before we went. It's very conveniently located and has nice collection of guns.

They offer you packages to choose from to practise/shoot. Staff were very friendly and the range is located in a building basement.

I tried the AK47, Shotgun & Pistol package. Trainers area knowledgeable. Sometimes you need to take prior appointments.

Overall nice place if you like to shoot guns.

Not a good experience
Feb 2019 • Solo
I have a very different opinion. From the rest of others. It is not required to do unless you are very passionate about guns. The guy Mr. Wilson who was with me while firing wwas alswyas in a hurry. He never explained anything to me and said he was in a hurry. Even I told him I can wait but he insisted me to finish off quickly. It will be more interesting if we have a better treatment. I would not recommend if its the same guy

Great experience

Visited here on first day in Cape Town.

Unfortunately the Desert Eagle and AK firearms were unavailable, as they had run out of ammunition.

However Eloise at the front desk suggested an alternative package, which turned out great.

The range instructor was absolutely excellent, extremely patient and super enthusiastic.

He definitely went out of his way to ensure I had a great experience, gave me loads of information about everything from the ammunition to the firearms. He let me load the magazines myself and also took an excellent video of my shooting.

Highly recommend this range - the experience is excellent

It’s a must when you got the opportunity. Fabulous experience. Shoot with powerful weapons. It’s just WOW. I highly recommend. According prices, I would advise to take the packages. The personal is very friendly. Special thanks to Mr. John...

Use of the indoor range in central Cape Town, who doesn't want to fire an AK47 in Africa
Safe with good supervision and instruction
A variety of guns that can be tailored to suit the individual

A great opportunity to test your skills under close supervision from skilled instructors. This was our 5th and latest visit. Plenty of choice on which gun to shoot in a very safe environment.....

Cool shooting
Nov 2017 • Family
Wow, took my son aged 12 to Gun Fun. We are on holiday in Cape Town, luckily found a brochure about this place. We have not fired guns before but thought it would be interesting. Also my son plays lots of shoot em up video games and I though it would be good for him to appreciate what a real gun can do. Hey if he was going to fire a gun I was not going to miss out. Did not really know what to expect but staff really friendly, put us at ease straight away. The briefing on safety was very focused and our instructor very supportive. Then pull the trigger and try to hit the target.

Totally recommend this experience, it is fun but also with all of the guns portrayed in movies etc I think it is also a valuable lesson. We are definitely coming back next time we are in Cape Town. And it is cool to say that you have fired an AK47
