Q8 Shooting Range
This past Thursday I went out with few colleagues from my work to the shooting range located in Subhan off the 6th Ring Road. Its been 10 years since I last used a gun. The last time I used it was in 1999 when I went for a NCC (National Cadet Corps) training which I did it after my high school just for fun. And it was really fun!!
They have different types of guns but the one that I used was a .40 caliber and it was good. It was kinda hard to aim but still I did pretty well. The recoil is really strong which I felt over the weekend with slight pain in my shoulders. The gun with 20 bullets costs around Kd6 but as I went with a member we ended up paying KD4.
While there we met the Manager of Shooting Ranges Complex who is also a Retired army colonel. A really great man who gave us a brief about the place and different guns they have. Most of the workers there are from Philippines. Its a must visit place if you want to experience something new. I am seriously thinking to become a member there.
The pics above shows the 20 bullets that I fired. Its easy to count the 19 bullets but you will be surprised to see that the last bullet is right on the top. I am assuming that this was the first shot that I fired :D
