  • Arrive at the shooting range, where your guide will tell you about the guns you will be firing, explain how to use them safely, and give you tips about how to get the best score possible.
  • Before the shooting begins, will be split you into two teams: the cops and the robbers.
  • Take a deep breath before squeezing those triggers. You have fifteen minutes shooting with an air pistol and fifteen minutes shooting with an air rifle, and your best five shots with each weapon will count towards your total score.
