When you were a kid, you probably used to run around the house pretending to shoot the enemies (aka dad, the dog, your dressing gown hanging on the door). This is your chance to turn it into a reality at one of Budapest’s oldest and largest shooting ranges! Manic Tours will organize everything for you, including transport to and from the venue as well as the shooting package. Plus, you’ll have an English speaking guide to help you with your target practice.
There are a few different packages to choose from, starting at EUR 55-80 per person for about 2 hours. The cheaper packages get you more pistols and the more expensive ones include things like sniper rifles. But don’t worry, you don’t have to have a military background to take part in this activity! The instructors will make sure you’re safe and comfortable during the whole experience.
Whether you choose pistols, revolvers or rifles, each of these weapons has a specific feel to it and you’ll definitely feel the power of each gun. But it’s not just the guns that are powerful, you also have to focus and work on your accuracy as each shot will count. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can improve your aim when the instructor is by your side.
You might think that this is an activity only for men, but even though statistics show that women are less interested in the sport, they can compete just as well. Adventure shooting is an accessible, exciting and varied activity that is great for groups of friends or families.
Sporting clays, a variation of trap shooting, has become one of the most popular shotgun sports. It simulates the unpredictable flight patterns of field game birds and rabbits with a variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, and clay target sizes. During a sporting clays event, shooters rotate through a series of shooting “stations” or numbered stands that vary in number and type of targets.
When a sporting clays shooter steps up to the stand, he or she is given the opportunity to fire two shots at each station. A round of a sporting clays event typically includes 50 targets. During special events, it may include 100 targets. During the shoot, sporting clays shooters are grouped into squads of six shooters. When it’s your squad’s turn to shoot, a referee or “puller” will throw a pair of targets for you and your squadmates to practice the upcoming station before you take your turns at each stand.
Whether you’re an experienced or beginning sporting clays shooter, you can get the most out of your tournament experience by using the right gear and technique. To improve your performance, you’ll need a quality shotgun that can hold four or more shells in any gauge. A pump-action, semi-automatic or over-and-under shotgun will work. You also need a good choke and a reliable load of 12 gauge shot.shooting range Budapest
