I finally experienced holding a real gun in my hands and firing it! It’s a much more powerful experience than I imagined. For starters, the gun shot is LOUD. And when you pull the trigger the shooting bullet pushes the gun backwards in huge force. And pointing it at a target isn’t easy at all! Action movies give us the wrongest idea about this.
I handed my ID at the entrance then headed to the basement where I checked in by filling out a form and choosing my gun, went for the 9 mm.
Here are the guns and prices..
I was then directed to the 25 m range. A staff asked if it was my first time and since it was, he explained everything to me and stood close while I shot, in case I needed any help.
Seeing those empty shells all over the floor really puts you in the mood and pushes your adrenaline up. I couldn’t wait to fire my first shot!
Annnd here’s my shooting board. They let you keep it. How do you think I did? I think I might have a hidden Van Damme side in me after all.
The whole process took less than 10 minutes. But still somehow felt enough. I will be going back to try different guns. Eyeing the 38 cal revolver already!
