Bang Bang! Shoot a Gun: Daegu Shooting Range
By Park, Hyo-eun, Reporter
Are you sick of the typical date or meeting where you just eat lunch, watch movies and drink alcohol or coffee? Don’t we have other entertainments in Daegu? The Daegu Shooting Range located in Chilgok is a refreshingly different day out! The Daegu Shooting Range will bring your fantasies about being an action star to life. Let’s try a new amusement and feel like a movie star!
Types of Shooting
There are several types of shooting events and a unique screen target shooting which is a simulated shooting game. You can choose what you want depending on the money you have. According to the price, the type of shooting and the way you can enjoy the shooting are different. These are the options at the Daegu Shooting Range.
Clay Target Shooting
The origin of this game goes back to the 17th and 18th century European nobles who would shoot deliberately released flying pigeons, so it also known as clay pigeon shooting. This event has developed into clay target shooting by changing from pigeons to orange dishes called pigeon. Because of the high speed of the pigeon, clay target shooting requires extreme concentration. It is grouped under the main headings of skeet, trap, and sporting. Skeet is shooting the pigeon from various angles, moving from 1 to 8 shooting sites. In trap shooting targets are thrown singly or doubly from one or more traps, and you shoot them. American Trap is the easiest one, so I recommend it to beginners. The fee is 22,000 won for 25 shoots and 10,000 won for 10. This fee is reduced to 18,000 won for 25 and 8,000 won for 10 for adolescents or groups of more than 10 people. Use of guns, vests and earmuffs are free.
Pistols, being smaller than rifles, are much more convenient to carry in general, so they are used by soldiers or the police. They usually have a shorter range and less accuracy compared to rifles. The noisy sound and vibration felt through the arms give excitement. With high technology safeguards and monitors, we can check the target in real time. You can also be taught by a thoroughly educated safety guard. A 22-caliber pistol is 12,000 won. 9mm and 38-caliber pistols are 15,000 won and a 357-caliber is 16,000 won to general members of the public. It is 2,000 won to 3,000 won cheaper to adolescent or group members. You can freely borrow pistols, glasses, earmuffs and body armors.
Air Pistol Shooting
An air pistol is a gun that propels bullets by means of compressed air or other gas. Air guns are used for hunting, pest control, recreational shooting and competitive sports, such as the Olympic 10 m air rifle and 10 m air pistol events. An air pistol is the cheapest one in real shooting. Anyone can easily enjoy it, and the fee is 3,000 won per 20 fires and 2 target papers.
Survival Special Force
A lot of students are fascinated by the survival computer game. How about enjoying survival in reality? There are realistic built-up areas and GPS systems which discriminate between life or death. They realize the typical map ‘Warehouse’ of the online game ‘Sudden Attack’ and comprise three courses. Through this game, we can improve team work, judgment and reasoning power. It lasts for seven minutes up to half time and on the final. The general fee is 12,000 won and for groups this is 10,000 won.
How to Get there
Using public transportation is a little inconvenient because of the lack of bus services. The Chilgok2-Geumho direction is the only bus route. In addition, this bus does not run frequently. Fortunately, there is a free shuttle bus. If you want to know the timetable of the shuttle bus, visit the website www.daegushooting.or.kr. However, I recommend you to go by car. It will be more comfortable and faster.
You can do other sports in the Daegu shooting range! We can play foot volleyball and basketball. The back of the shooting range is a site of a scenic trail. It also has accommodation. If you want to use this facility, book it on the website.
When you are tired of a repetitive routine and getting stressed out, how about going to Daegu Shooting Range? Shooting a gun is another way to relieve stress. The tremendous sounds and shooting at targets will freshen your heart. Playing and exercising are most important to health. Daegu Shooting range is a proper place for healing.
