OF,are you sure that there are no public shooting ranges in Australia,where people even without a license can go and shoot with real guns?

For once I have to agree with Kurt.By normal he means were they have sensible gun laws such as the UK & Australia. Whilst guns don't kill people do they certainly facilitate killing. Try committing suicide or murder with a .22 air gun!!!

Mr.K. What is a "normal"country.How would you define it ? Normal by your standards ? And would you call yourself "normal"too? 

Kurt | 30 September 2018 - 08:23:08

In normal countries you must be a member of a shooting club ( possible after a personal police screening only). Here any tourist can go to a shooting range, like going to a cinema. Phuket shooting ranges are dangerous locations. Avoid them, don't challenge facing mental unstable people. This person could have harmed/killed others with that gun in his hand.
