Shooting Range Siem Reap Reviews
Siem Reap Shooting Range Feb 15, 2011
While in Siem Reap, Jan 2011, I hired a taxi driver for the day to see the temples near Angkor Wat ($30 USD/day)and the second day I used the same driver to take me around the Roulous Group outer temples, (50 USD/day)
On the way to the Roulous Group, my driver asked me if I was interested in going to the shooting range. I figured that it might be interesting, so after a few miles down a rough, dirt road we arrived at a tin building out in the sticks.
Inside the building on the walls, were numerous fully-automatic military weapons for WWII until present, including RPG's and grenade launchers.
There were only 2 guns that I was really interested in firing since I was familiar with most of the more common ones like the AK-47 and M-16, etc. I asked about the BAR but they said it was broken, so I went with the WWII Russian PPSH submachinegun. I was quoted a price of $50 USD for 30 rounds with the PPSH, which I thought was pretty pricey, but they wouldn't budge on the price. I agreed since it wasn't likely that I would get another opportunity like this anytime soon. I fired it down a sand-bagged indoor range ( hearing protection was provided). It was one a brief, memorial experience that I would recommend if you are into this sort of thing and have extra money to shoot away.
There was also a belt-fed Russian Dragonov(?) they suggested, but the price was something like $100 and the RPG was $250, I think, but that didn't seem like enough "bang for the buck" to me.
