“Expensive but fun”

Phuket Shooting Range
Attraction details
Reviewed October 14, 2013

For those who have never handled or shot a firearm this place can be fun. Having come from a law enforcement background it holds no fascination for me but the others in the group had fun. Very expensive as 10 rounds will cost you around 1000 Baht and the rounds are reloads so you don't get the "real" experience a factory load fired off gives you. Nevertheless, everyone that had never fired a semi-auto handgun before had fun in a safe and well run range. Recommended for the experience if you have never done it before, if you have you may come away a little disappointed.

As has all the other reviews say.
Pricey per bullet Yes.
Well run and professional yes. Actually I felt like we were processed they are so slick.
If your not watching your pennies too much, I would recommend it.

The price is only a shock as it costs more to shoot 10 rounds, than have a taxi driver drive you 30 minutes and the wait 2 hrs and drive you back from an activity in Phuket.

We decided to have a look at the Phuket shooting range as we'd heard different stories so we decided to check it out for ourselves.

Firstly, It would be considered as somewhat expensive all bar one weapon is 990 baht for 10 rounds. At the current exchange rate this works out to be about $34.00 AUD. So yeah it is expensive but you get to shoot an variety of weapons which gives the experience a bit of a thrill and almost makes it worth it.

Our whole family (2 adults & 2 kids) had a go at it and to be honest we had a great time. You get to get a photo of you with your weapon and target sheet. You get to keep the target which has your percentage of accuracy which is not a bad souvenir to take back with you if you just look at it as a different type of experience especially if like us your not usually around or involved with weapons.

The range is very professionally run and you have an instructor with you the entire time you are using the weapon, this will make any person with any sort of apprehension feel at ease.

If you treat it as a different experience to have that you wouldn't be able to have back here in Australia then most should enjoy the time at the range. Even my 8 yr old daughter got to shoot a magazine full of BB pellets, she had an absolute ball and even asked if we had time could we go back so she could have another go.

It may not be for anyone but it is an attraction available to people that isn't available to us here.

Just keep an open mind!
