Shooting range, which package for a first timer

    Hi, please bear with me and my ignorance here, I have never fired a gun of any description in my life, but have always wanted to go to a shooting range. I will be in Gdansk in a few weeks time and shooting ranges seem very common and very affordable so I figured it was a good opportunity to tick something off the bucket list! It seems to be advisable to book in advance, so I wonder if you could take a look at the packages below and advise which I should go for? I should point out that I am a female and would have fairly poor upper body strength, so I am wary that my arms might get tired if I go for one of the packages with a lot of ammunition included!

    MIX
    89.00zł
    20 .22 LR
    10 x 9 mm
    5 x .38 SPEC
    5 x 7.62x39 KbkAK
    2 tarcze


    STANDARD
    129.00zł
    50 x 9 mm
    2 tarcze

    MAX
    169.00zł
    15 x 9x19 Para
    10 x .38 SPEC
    7 x 7.62x25 TT
    15 x 9x18 Mak
    5 x .223 Rem
    3 tarcze

    I’ll be honest, I haven’t a clue what those guns are or how physically hard they are to shoot so would appreciate any guidance! Link below to the packages. Many thanks in advance

    looks fairly pricey from what I can see to be honest, considering you're only shooting a few rounds. I presume "tarcze" is Polish for targets?

    If you want to shoot different types of guns go for a mixture I guess? Your arms won't get tired. Sure you'd rattle off 100 rounds through a shotgun before you felt anything.

    I’ve been to two ranges in gdansk, my favourite was this place
    http://strzelnicaczapla.pl
    Its a bit outside the city though

    I didnt book a package in either place i was at, i just picked out random guns i wanted to fire, everything from a fully auto tommy gun to a .44 magnum, as it worked out cheaper for me as there were guns in the packages that i had no interest in firing

    I wouldn’t worry about your arms getting tired as they never rushed us at either range we went to and my misses had no trouble firing several firearms

    As to which package its impossible to say as it all depends what you want to fire, revolvers, pistols, classic guns, semi auto military rifles etc, i reckon tour better off doing some googling and pick the type of firearms you’d like to fire and go from there then to find a package that suits or do like me and just create your own list tailored to what you want

    Thank you both very much for the replies. Looks like I need to do a bit of research and decide what guns I want to try and maybe not bother with the package at all. I'm just conscious of being totally clueless, but hopefully they're used to that and are patient!

    You could try a range here before you go as well to give you a little idea as to what is involved. You would at least have some knowledge before you go.

    Listen carefully to the instructor and feel free to ask him/her any questions, there will probably be a different person instructing you on each different gun and you will probably be in a different section of the range for each gun.

    It's all very safe and controlled once you follow the instructions, it is also a mighty craic and some people are just naturally good at it.

    Take your time with each gun and make sure you get a picture or video for posterity. It is a great craic.
