Let’s say you want to visit Poland and you need a shooting range in Warsaw. If you are already very knowledgeable about guns, it still can be an issue to find a great shooting range in a foreign country.
It can be difficult to tell which one is the best local shooting range just by looking at the prices or number of lanes on the website. The best way to find a great shooting range is by asking around and doing some research online first.
What is the best shooting range in Warsaw? This question is difficult to answer. All the more difficult because the answer itself will depend on what you expect from the shooting range. To help you choose, we have prepared a short and subjective (!) ranking of good shooting ranges in Warsaw and the surrounding area. Probably none of them meet the criteria of the best shooting range in Warsaw, but collectively you will be able to shoot at these ranges with everything and in your preferred style.
Do I need my own gun at a shooting range in Warsaw?
The short answer is no. For sport, recreational or training use, no requirement for a weapon is required in Poland. It doesn’t mean one can buy gun or will receive gun to use as he/she pleases. Shooting ranges (in Poland, but in Europe in general) have specific permissions to protect the users safety. Your shooting will be done under the care of an experienced instructor.
How safe are shooting ranges?
The importance of safety on a shooting range can never be underestimated. And safe behavior doesn’t always come with age. Beginner shooters can behave in a safe way, and old shooters can behave dangerously. Shooting and shooting range safety are sometimes two different topics. Therefore, it is extremely important to take safety precautions seriously. The weapon, when used correctly, is completely safe. If used incorrectly, it can cause catastrophic damage. Knowing how to handle weapons safely, regardless of how you feel about them, can be an extremely helpful part of knowledge. Statistically, everyone is sure to encounter firearms at some point in their life, so even if you don’t like them, it’s good to at least know how to handle them safely.
That said, a shooting range is the safest environment to get to know guns and gun safety, or acquire new skills. Just make sure to follow instructions from an authorized person, such as an instructor or Range Safety Officer (RSO).
