1) Do I have to pre-book or can I just turn up?

Yes, you do need to pre-book at least a few days before you plan to shoot (at least a week before if you plan to shoot midweek) because we need to arrange instructors and book transport to and from the range for you.  For larger groups wishing to shoot at the weekend, especially during summer, its recommended to book at least 3 weeks before to guarantee a slot.

2) Can we pay when we get to the shooting range?

We ask for a £20 per person deposit when you book (e.g. a 8 person group would need a £160 deposit), and then you pay the balance in cash in local Czech currency to the Range Manager when you arrive at the range. We can also charge this deposit in Euro for non-UK residents.  The deposit forms part of the total payment for the event therefore is not refundable after the event.  We are also happy to accept pre-payment for corporate customers, or any groups preferring not to handle large amounts of cash on the day.

If the time and date slot requested on your booking form is still available then we will email you a link to an invoice on a secure website that allows you to reserve the slot pay using a credit card or debit card.  If the slot is not available then we will email you offering some alternative time slots.  There is no additional charge for paying with a credit card.  We do not accept American Express.

3) I am on my own. Can I still shoot?

I am afraid most of our shooting events require a minimum of two people* because they are organised as competitions.  We have offered shooting programmes for just one person in the past, but the price was higher (due to higher per person transport and instructor costs) and they took less time to complete as there is no competition element.  This meant they were not perceived as good value for money by customers, so we stopped offering them.  Unfortunately, it is also not practical to add one person to an existing group booking because these larger groups usually require exclusivity (e.g. stag party, company team building event etc).

(*Triple Guns programme requires minimum 4 people)

4) Can I have a mixture of different programmes within my group?

Our shooting events are organised as group competitions so that you can all compare your individual scores at the end, and so that we can award the competition winner with a certificate for achieving the highest score.  Unfortunately this means that it is not really practical to mix up the packages within a group.  It could also mean splitting your group up to different parts of the range and more individual waiting time so would not be as much fun.

It works out much better to choose one shooting event that everyone can afford (like our 4 Guns Contest, or the Big Five),  and then those with more interest can shoot some extra guns at the end including guns like the Desert Eagle and .44 Magnum.  This way you will get a group shooting contest, plus the flexibility for individuals to try different guns at the end.

5) I’ve never fired a gun before. Do I need a gun licence etc?

For safety reasons all of our shooting events assume zero knowledge or skills with firearms. Our events are designed to give non-shooting customers a really positive introduction to target shooting. Since 2003 over 20,000 Brits have attended Top Gun Tours events at our various locations in Europe and the USA. The vast majority of these people had never shot a gun in their lives.

6) What do I need to bring to the range?

All you need to bring is valid photo ID (e.g. passport) and appropriate clothing for the time of year (e.g.shower proof jacket April-Sept, and a warmer coat Oct-March). Eye and ear protection is provided at no additional cost at the range.

7) What is the minimum age limit?

18 years old.  It is also possible for younger guests (from 13-17 years old) to shoot if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and at least 72 hours notice is given prior to them shooting. Minimum of 1 parent/guardian per two under 18s.

8) My friend/s don’t want to shoot. Is it OK for them to come along and watch?

Yes, we welcome spectators. You will need to tell us in advance if there are any spectators so that we can send the correct size of vehicle. There is a £20 or €25 charge per spectator which is payable at the time of booking.  This covers transfers to and from the range, and refreshments whilst at the range.

9) Is it OK to take photos/video?

Yes, we are happy for you to take your own photos and video.  Please note that photos and video must not breach any range safety regulations and we also ask that you do not take any photos that include the faces of instructors or other range staff to respect their privacy.   If in doubt check with your instructor first.
