Our team (english speaking) goes shooting here on a monthly basis:
https://www.schiessanlage.ch/

.308 tends to be reserved for private evenings (as the public ones you can only shoot pistol calibers, in theory... in practice if it's quiet you can also do 308/223)

I'm planning an event here:
https://www.swiss-shooting-academy.com/
(starting with Pistol basics, then holster training then dynamic shooting - all in English).

If any of these are of interest, you should join us

(part of me is considering looking into what it would take to register/open an English speaking shooting club/group... seems like we keep building on people, but are doing everything very informally)
Great - many thanks, and I’ll be in touch.

Hi All,

I'm in the process of moving to Zurich from the UK.

I'm a licensed shooter in the UK, and I've been in contact with the Federal police to get the process for importing my guns and getting a Cantonal license in Zurich.

However the range question is a valid one for me - what would be the easiest/friendliest club to shoot:

.308
.22
Target shotgun (IPSC style)?

My German is pretty basic, but I'd like to join a club or range for the social aspect as well as the shooting.
If you are interested in pistol calibers only and you plan to shoot regularly I can also recommend www.tsbirmensdorf.ch.
It is significantly bigger than Tivoli (more lines and 25m instead of 12m), open more hours per week (I like that you can go quite late 3 workdays per week). The drawback: it's not walk-in, you have to get an annual membership, you can't even try it once for yourself, only if going together with another member.
The price for annual membership is similar to Tivoli one.

Bumping an old thread, as I'm on the prowl for a new range.

I've been successfully using the range at Tivoli for a few years, and it's great.

The downside is that you're only allowed pistol calibers now... I have a few 7.62 and 5.56 rifles that need somewhere to shoot. Ideally something with a 100m range. There's a great one near Lausanne (lagardere), but I can't find a similar one in Zurich

Any ideas? Ideally something that doesn't force me to join a club (as I still haven't found an English speaking shooting club).
If you are willing to travel ~1h by car from time to time, an interesting option might also be https://bruenigindoor.ch (they claim to be the biggest underground shooting range in the world). The range goes up to 300m, and I'm sure you can shoot those calibers cos I shot a .223 rifle there. No membership is required, so you can just pay as you walk in.

I can't see prices on their site - when you say similar, is it similar to tivoli's 50CHF annual membership, or closer to the 780CHF annual subscription?

You can find the prices in the "terms of use". It's 850 chf per year, unlimited access. Quite pricey, but if you go regularly - in my opinion it's a better deal than Tivoli. You can also bring a guest 5 times per year for free

Even at Brunig you have to become a member but it only costs about 20 CHF life membership (more of a registration). friendly staff and English speaking. Pistol range is 25M Rifle upto 300m. like everywhere it is closed during the current situation.

Yep, it's a one-off 10 CHF for the card: https://bruenigindoor.ch/de/Ueber-un...-Informationen
