The only thing I wish it had said in the fineprint is that the actual shooting time is only 20 minutes. Otherwise, it was a cool experience.

It was not noted anywhere on the offer that while the class was in Glendale, Queens, the actual rifle range was in Uniondale, on Long Island, and we needed our own transportation there. They told you this when you called to make the reservation. It was fine for us, since I have a car and drove, but that kind of information really needs to be included on the offer. Thanks!

Not 1 hour shotting though. More like 10 min. A little disappointed on that. Crew was very nice.

What You'll Get

Knowing how to properly handle a gun is invaluable, especially when your feet are otherwise occupied. Take control with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a 60-minute rifle- or shotgun-shooting experience at Valastro International Academy in Glendale (a $140 value), accessible from Manhattan via the M train with a transfer to the Q29 bus.

The outing includes the following:

  • Rifle or shotgun rental
  • Ammo
  • Targets
  • Protection<p>

First-time visitors must take a safety course and register with the shop, both at no extra fee.

The staff of experienced law-enforcement officials at Valastro International Academy teaches visitors proper firearm-shooting and safety techniques inside a private facility with a laser-shot range. Throughout the one-hour shooting session, guests aerate targets with bullets from a rifle or shotgun until the ammo runs out. The skilled instructors equip shooters with ear protection to muffle the maniacal hooting of gun chambers, and guests take home safety-certification awards as a keepsake of the day’s firearm festivities.
