My wife and I visited the Sharjah Shooting and Golf Club for a couple of rounds of pistol and rifle shooting. If you ever wondered if there’s a gun firing range in the UAE, you can head over to Sharjah. I think there are a few places in Dubai, but since we had a Buy One Get One voucher from our Entertainer App, we didn’t hesitate in choosing the Sharjah club as our destination to try this activity.
It was my wife’s birthday and I suggested this activity as it’s been one of the things she has wanted to do in a long time. We called their hotline and tried booking ahead, but the staff told us we could simply walk in.

Gun Firing Range at the Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club
We arrived at the location and surrendered our ID (Emirates ID or passport is fine) and filled out our details. The staff took then took us upstairs to the shooting area. Take note that this is an indoor firing range in Sharjah.

The rules inside the shooting range is very strict. We surrendered all other items in a dedicated area. Each customer will have one officer to look over. The officer will also offer you options which guns you want to try. You are not allowed to point the gun anywhere else except towards the target.
Even taking pictures of you firing can only be taken from a distance and also for a limited time. The Police and staff want to make sure that no unforeseen incident are left unattended. This is also part of security to ensure safety among everyone. So to those who might be planning to take plenty of selfies, try to be quick with the process.

Pistol and Rifle guns
We tried both a pistol and a rifle. The officers advised us to try the rifle as it’s much easier to control over the pistol. True enough my wife and I had fun hitting the targets correctly. As for the pistols, my wife was much better at it compared to me. She even went for an extra round using another type of pistol.
After the activity, we took our belongings and paid for the rounds we took. They also gave us the paper targets to take home.

This was a new experience we thought of trying and we had a great time. We felt safe knowing that the staff and policemen were very alert and ensured safety for everyone.
Aside from pistol and rifle shooting, the club offers other activities such as archery, paintball shooting, golf, a gym and a restaurant, cafe and spa.
