Shooting ranges in Wroclaw

Hello, all newcomers from abroad,
If you come from a country where the law is more liberal and you can have a weapon without problems or simply you are passionate about shooting, it’s not lost. The fact that you are in a country where possession of a weapon by a civilian is prohibited by law does not mean that you can’t continue your passion. You can always use professional shooting ranges, which are many in Lower Silesia and the whole country. We will focus on the area of ​​Wroclaw. We have several professional shooting ranges at our disposal, where under the supervision of an instructor you can use the arsenal of the shooting range and practice your shooting skills. Some of the shooting ranges, unfortunately, belong to their club and you can’t come literally from the street to be able to train for entertainment. But there are at least two shooting ranges worth recommending, where you can freely come, pay and use their shooting tracks. A big plus is that both are located practically in the city center, which solves the problem of transport.

„WAR-ZONE & LASER TAG”

The first of the proposed shooting ranges is “War-Zone & Laser Tag” and is located at ul. Sztabowa 32 in an old post-German bunker in the military area. As the name suggests, the shooting range consists of two areas. The first area is a laser-tag arena. It is the only two-story labyrinth in Wroclaw, where you can create a track yourself with moving obstacles and curtains. The labyrinth consists of tires, doors, barrels, stairs, ladders and mysterious passages. All moving obstacles can be freely moved. Many corridors and lanes make the game even more interesting. The old walls of the German military shelter with a floating smokescreen and properly selected music create an unforgettable, dark atmosphere. At the same time, up to 8 players can currently be in the labyrinth. You can arrange integration and occasional parties and birthdays for children there.

The second separate area is a typical shooting range, where you can shoot with firearms under the supervision of instructors. We have many short and long weapons units at our disposal. Starting from the latest pistols and rifles used today in all units, through weapons used during World War II, ending with various pistols, revolvers and historical shotguns. In addition to the availability of individual weapons, you can order thematic weapon packages, for example “World War 2”, “ladies’ weapons”, “made in Israel”, “made in Russia”, “Police package”, “US Army” and many more. The prices depend on the type of weapon and the amount of ammunition purchased. For example, for PLN 100, we have a fee for entering the shooting range PLN 20-25 and three pistols for each 10 shots or 20 shots from the AK-47. More details can be found at www.war-zone.com.pl.

PROGUN

Another shooting range worth visiting is “ProGun”, which is located in the basement of the Świebodzki Railway Station at Plac Orląt Lwowskich 20B. The entrance is located under the northern wing of the Świebodzki Station from the side of Robotnicza Street.
A common passion and many years of collecting firearms by the owners of the shooting range meant that we have at our disposal a wide range of weapons used by the world’s largest armies.

Shooting packs available in ProGun will allow you to familiarize yourself with the capabilities of the most popular weapon models, and the safety of each participant is supervised by an experienced instructor.

The price of the package is the entire service:
– discussion of the operation of the weapon
– rules for safe handling
– discussing the attitudes of shooting
– the most important elements in customs shooting
– shields, stickers

Package prices start from PLN 100 for the simplest one, up to PLN 300 for the richest one. Of course, by prior arrangement, you can compose your own package from a very large list of weapons. In addition to the price should be added 25 PLN for entering the object. Details of the offer can be found at www.progun.pl.
To use both shooting ranges, you must make an appointment by phone or e-mail. Both shooting ranges are open throughout the week, except Monday for War-Zone. I invite all enthusiasts to have fun!

Partynice witnessed the huge success of Polish horses, which in terms of the amount of prizes won took second place behind Hungarian steeds, beating the rarely losing team of the Soviet Union.
