Q: Anybody know of some International Firearms ranges in Southern China?

Hey guys, A buddy just clued me into the existance of an international "shooting range" in Beijing. You can rent a plethora of firearms, pay for the ammo and shoot it.

With China's stance on private gun ownership ,Who knew such a thing exisited? I checked it out online and it seems to be legitimate. Anyone hear about this? Anybody been there?

Anyway, being a firearms enthusiast, anyone know of a similar deal down Guangdong way?. I really dislike Beijing , and try to fly out the same day after meetings. Too close to the sphere of "gummit" influence for my comfort. Beijing is like being in Mordor with that big yellow and black feral eye looking at you!

Please dont post about wimpy 'Paintball" in HK. I'm talking about  some real Texas style shooting with a "real" firearm.

I haven't heard of any outside of military & police ranges.  I have been trying to get one of my buddies to get me an invite to the GZ military Hogan's Alley, but so far no luck.  If you hear about one, let me know.  It has been way too long since I squezed off a few rounds.

Gun Slinger, I don't know what part of GZ you are in, but if you are in Panyu, I would be more than happy to share a few beers at the Taver Bar.  However, I will only be in GZ for about another 10 days.  Then I head back to Wuhan for a few months.

ppk's great firearm, Bond's fav. Hey a lotta great deals on old commie arms out there.

CZ-82's- 12 round stacked mags. And the P-64 (6 rounds, fits in your hand), with holsters, cleaning kits, extra mags, both com block pistols easily had and mailed to your house providing you have an FFL. All steel weapons, polygonal rifled barrels, all for less than 200 USD. Yowza ., Yowza!

Remind me to tell ya all  the story about when I showed up at the Chinese police station drunk as a skunk demanding a concealed carry permit (I even showed em mine from the US). They threw me out.

I came back a few weeks later (sober) and we had a nice chat. Still didnt get it, but I think Im wearing em down Smile

Its a second amendment thing. I grew up with them in a  family of military veterans, became proficient, hunted when I was younger and put alot of game on the table. I have a concealed carry permit in the States and an FFL (Federal Firearms License), and collect the things. I like old military guns used in wars. 45's, 9mm's, SKS, AK's, Mausers etc. I buy them re arsenalled by armory's from all over the world.

Its a skill. Some people shoot little balls into pockets on a felt covered table (pool), others hit a ball and walk after it (golf), I like to punch holes in paper or buckets at 1000 meters, or do some fancy shooting on a short (15-20 meter)  pistol range. Its a useful hobby.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
