Sport shooting in Doha/Qatar

Hello everybody

I am here in doha since two weeks, i am german and working for the qatar foundation.

In germany i did a lot of sport shooting (olympical trap) and i know there is a shooting range. i went there two times but no one was on the range and i don't find informations when it is open, maybe its closed in ramadan? i also have a phone number of the national shooting association, but no one answers the phone.

Does anyone have more information's for me or is a member of the shooting club.

Thank you for you help.

Best regards

Hey Phil,

I am also very keen to learn shooting.
I am DEEP from India.

If you get any information , please let me know.
I guess due to RAMADAN it may have been closed.

Regards,
DEEP

I am not positive on this but from the police officers that I have talked to, the shooting range it is members only. You have to be invited by a member and I am not sure if you are allowed to shoot or not. I as well shoot competition matches back home. I shoot three gun match
and high power long range. In fact I had just purchased a new rifle and sited it in before I went to China for work. Right after that I came here. It would be great if we had a place to shoot but I do believe that civilians are not allowed to own firearms in Qatar.

If this is incorrect information, feel free to correct me.

HI all,

The timing of the shooting range is from 4:00 to 7:00 in the evening.
I often go there, DEEP or anyone of you willing to join me is welcome.
You don’t need to be the member of the club, just you have to go there and buy bullets and can use their nice under over single triggered Petro Berettas with and without slips.

Yeah I'm looking for a shooting range too. Somewhere I can shoot at some tossers in their landcruisers. Revenge for all their arrogance, aggressive driving, tailgating, etc

wouldn't mind giving this a go sometime, could be fun...
just a case of turn up and shoot?

Hi Phil and DEEP, i also hope for a positive outcome in finding a shooting (firing) range or a gun club in DOHA that would allow foreigners to be a member.

I am a gun enthusiast from the Philippines and I am into DEFENSIVE SHOOTING.

STAY SAFE and WATCH YOUR SIX.

deceiver

ei oaolaya, surely...i'll share what i know, but of course, i'll teach you the 4-GUN SAFETY RULES...

however, we'll have to check 1st if the facilities are available. if not, then we'll just join the PAINTBALLers or the AIRSOFTers who are all based in DOHA...

DEEP2DEEP

Hi Buddy,

Where is this shooting range ?
I am very keen to join you along with my friend from Bahrain (Mr. Khalid)

Regards,
Deep

Have no idea where it could be, but I am very surprised about the violent human nature. Shoot, shoot and shoot some more. Violent behavior if repeated too many times. can become a habit for someone. I'm very worried.

sandeep.vdevan@...

hi Casanova


 do we need any members or qatari national to be there with us if we are goin on our own.... or just directly go pay and practise shooting for anyone eh?? could u lemme kno

Snipr

Its alright. Depends where you're shooting, I'd say that the indoors one is more exciting with the handguns and moving targets rather than shooting flying saucers with a double barrel rifle. Depends on your pref really.

I know this thread is old but anyway,

Only Qataris has the power to buy weapons. We sell crossbows, bows and (rifles/shotguns before in villaggio). We always ask for ID's before we let a customer take a weapon.
