While this “New York Shooting Range” isn’t actually in New York City, it’s in New Jersey, but it’s really just a stone’s throw and easy to find. This shooting package is a special activity for one to three people, where you will experience first-hand what it’s like to shoot with a firearm.

Target Practice for Tourists

When you arrive at the shooting range you will be given documents to sign to complete the registration. So don’t forget your passport! After that, go to the counter where you will be given the firearms. 

The above pack contains two different guns, including an AK-47 (aka Kalashnikov). You’ll also get enough ammo to give both weapons a try. Before entering the authorized shooting area, a member of staff will explain exactly how everything works, after which you can begin. All staff is happy to answer any questions you may have. These so-called Range Safety Officers ensure the safety of visitors and that everything runs smoothly. The bang and recoil after the trigger may take some getting used to, but you’ll quickly feel like a proficient shooter.

How Do You Get to the Shooting Range?

The shooting range is located in New Jersey, just outside of New York City. You can take the bus from Manhattan, with one change. The easiest way is by Uber, which can get you to the shooting range in half an hour from Midtown Manhattan. We took the 198 bus from Port Authority to the Willowbrook Mall Shoppers Stop bus stop and then an Uber for the last leg, which only takes about five minutes. Instead of Uber, you can also take another bus for the last stretch.
