In the mood to shoot? The False Bay Firearm Training Academy in Glencairn, Cape Town, offers a range of packages to suit every need or occasion.
Individual and corporate events - shooting all sorts of firearms including semi-automatic rifles (AK47, AR15, etc). Fun for all in idyllic setting with spectacular views of False Bay. Get rid of your frustrations taking them “out” on targets.
Hand gun; rifle or shot gun. Great for bachelor & bachelorette parties; team building; tour groups; family groups; individuals; tactical training. We also offer instructor courses; self defense; close quarters protection and anti-high jacking.
You’ve played “Call of duty” and you’re an expert in the latest action movie – now come and try your hand with the real thing! Real guns – real ammo – paper targets.
The range operates from a dis-used quarry with an incredible photographic amphitheatre back drop of 200m high man made cliffs of Table Mountain sandstone including birds of prey, and other animal life.
When the whales come to False Bay you can let off your frustrations on the range and then spend some time watching them frolicking in the bay from high vantage points. Then end your day with lunch/dinner in the picturesque historical town of Simon’s Town or a trip to Boulders to see our famous penguins.

Although you typically shoot from under cover, it is recommended to bring a hat and sun cream for summer, also a pair flat shoes or running shoes. Remember you are in Cape Town and temperature changes are vast in summer. The range is in a disused quarry looking over False Bay and has its own climate so always bring a jacket with you even in summer.
