shooting: where can I find a firing range?

I'd like to have a go and learn how to fire a gun (accurately), is there a proper firing range near Zurich where I can get help doing this (target practise)?

Thanks!

Almost every village has its 300 m shooting range and "Schiessverein". Google "Schützenvereine Zürich", good luck.

I also would like to know this.... most shooting clubs only offer a introduction / beginner course for youth under 20, maybe they assume old men like me (37) already know all this stuff....

There should be a few - are you looking for a handgun or rifle range?

Have a look here, there should be a few pointers (also in the search function)
Guns N' Ammo
Gun regulations
Quesion 2 rifle versus pistol

Hi all

I posted a longer post about this in other thread: Guns N' Ammo

basically I say that I also practice target shooting (50m and 300m). Ranges can be found in almost every village.

The biggest I know in Zurich its in albisguetli
