$49 for a Two-Hour Shooting-Range Package for One ($250 value)

Throughout the two-hour shooting session, guests aerate targets at 25-yard range with bullets from a .22 rifle, 7.62x39-caliber rifle, 500 SW-caliber rifle, 308-caliber rifle, 223-caliber rifle, or 12-gauge shotgun until the ammo runs out (about 60 rounds for rifle, three to four rounds for shotgun). Each package includes gun rental, ammo, targets, and safety gear. First-time visitors must register and take a one-hour safety course at the academy’s shop in Glendale—included at no extra charge—before redeeming the two-hour shooting-range package at the training facility in Uniondale. Marksmen take home a safety-certification award as a keepsake of their experience.
