When it comes to Kenting, the ocean and the beach come to mind first. There are many water activities, such as diving, SUP, and exciting banana boats, but in addition to these, Kenting also has many land-based activities worth experiencing, such as paintball, karting, horseback riding, and target shooting. This time, a group of our big boys came to the "Kenting Athletic Shooting Range" in Kenting to experience real shotguns and air guns. Since the last time we encountered real guns, it was a high school military training class. This event also made us all look forward to it. !

Kenting Athletics Flying Range is located in a very suburban place, but the road is not difficult to drive. The road is smooth and there are not many winding mountain roads. After turning into the Kengnei Road, I encountered a herd of cattle grazing on the road. It was a scene that I would not normally see in the city. It was very novel to watch!

Kenting Athletic Shooting Range｜Environment
The location of the shooting range is still full of easy to find, just follow the navigation and walk along the road in the pit! Although the shooting range was very empty, we heard gunshots resounding through the sky from time to time, which was very shocking, and we were also excited!
Then we went to the counter to confirm the plan, and we all came here. It is recommended to play with shotguns. After all, the chance of being able to shoot legally in a lifetime is close to zero! If you are afraid of the sound of gunfire or the recoil of the gun, you can also experience a milder air pistol or rifle. The environment of the competitive flying range is very safe. The rest area is completely separated from the shooting control area. The whole process of using guns is accompanied by a coach. Even friends who experience it for the first time need not worry too much.
Kenting Athletics Flying Range｜Target experience
Then we entered the most exciting target shooting session. It was a rare visit. We decided to experience shotguns and air guns once! During the experience, you will wear earmuffs to protect your ears from being frightened by gunfire. The shotgun needs to be aimed at the flying target sprayed from below. The flying target moves very fast, but it is not too difficult to hit. Jeffy hits almost every shot, full of sense of achievement!
Because the bullet of the shotgun will disperse after it is fired, although it is aimed, in fact, you only need to see the flying target flying under the gun and pull the trigger. We are all shooting targets for the first time. The operation of the gun is not too difficult, and the mobile phone can record handsome videos in slow motion! However, the recoil of the gun stock is very strong, and the coach especially said that you must remember to put it on the shoulder socket, so as not to be bruised everywhere when you go home.
The air gun feels similar to a normal BB bullet, and the target is a fixed metal plate in front, which requires more concentration on aiming than a shotgun. Aim the target at the crosshair, and then aim at the rear sight. After shooting, you will hear a clanging metal sound and you are shooting! There are two metal plates with distances inside, you can choose the distance you want to challenge yourself. If you are experiencing the air rifle program and have a scope, you can challenge a longer distance. After the overall shooting experience, Jeffy still prefers shotguns and thinks shotguns are more enjoyable~
The above is our real experience at the Kenting Athletics Flying Range! The overall play time is not long, and it takes about an hour for all six people to experience it once. Although the time is very short, it is a very unique and profound memory. It is very suitable to be placed between tourist attractions. Next time you come to Kenting, you may try it!
