We went on the 25M range to shoot .22 and 9mm pistols. Caz went first and she did rather well with the .22. The instructor (who was very good and had a good sense of humour) marked her target in the centre with chalk and told her that if she hit it she could keep the gun! He started to get a bit worried when she came pretty close, so he had to clarify that he was actually joking.
He told me the .22s were for girls and gave me a 9mm! I've only ever used a shot gun before, shooting clay pigeons, so a pistol was new for me. I didn't do too bad I don't think, hitting the bull about 5 times.
There is also a simulation machine with a laser gun where you can use lots of pre-set situations to test your shooting skills, which we said we might try on another occasion.
I think Caz shot 25 rounds and I did 50 and it cost us Dhs500 (c£80), so it wasn't cheap for the half an hour or so we were in there, but it was good fun and worth it for the experience.
Here's some pics...
