Everything You Need to Know About Ulsan

Kyeongju Bomun Live-Ammo Target Range

Kyeongju Bomun Live-ammo Target range – 경주보문 실탄사격장

The Verdict: Good for a stop by, but hardly a day at the range.  It’s more expensive than a lot of places, but where else can you fire live ammo in Korea?

The target range in Kyeongju has 17 different pistols to borrow in 3 or 4 different calibers – including a PPK they describe as having become famous “as a gun used by James Bond in the 007 series”, and a couple of .357 magnum revolvers.In Kyeongju, near Bomun Resort and sharing a building with an ATV rental place, is the closest live-ammunition target place to Ulsan.  There’s the Munsu Stadium target range, but that uses Olympic-style airguns.

 

Their prices are somewhat disappointing, as was the necessity to keep the gun tied on a rope.  People must drop guns frequently, I guess.DSC00560

They didn’t check my ID, but they had me write down my passport number.

The range offers (and indeed for most people coming in, demands) one-on-one assistance from the staff.  In terms of pricing – it’s about 20,000 won for 10 rounds in anything outside .357 magnum, and 25,000 for 10 rounds of .357.  There’s some modestly “discounted” special combinations, where you can shoot ten rounds of two, three, or all four calibers for variety. The target range is geared towards people who have never used guns before, or haven’t used pistols since mandatory military service.

I shot ten rounds each of 9mm auto, .38 special, and .357 magnum for 60,000 altogether.

I did my best shooting with the .357 magnum – in their top ten since last year, in fact.

I need more practice, though, and I’m not about to get it there.  I’m not made of money.

Speaking of money –  if you’re Japanese, you’ll pay double.  At least the English and Korean cards have the same pricing.  My advice, if you’re Japanese?  Don’t go to a shooting range that discriminates against you in this way – save your money.
