F**k the f**king ferry from f**king Hull Davey-Man, it's too f**king far from me and takes too f**king long.
Actually f**king Google sais it's only 14 f**king hours but that's still too f**king long.

Whereas my f**king TomTom says it's f**king only 3hrs and 50 f**king minutes from here and 205 f**king miles.

I f**king know which f**king one I'd f**king well f**king choose.

Even better news, one of our members is actually a member of Coppins and has 3 handguns stored over there.

I feel a plan coming together

The more I look at this, the more interesting it gets.
I can't work out the Eurostar website and booking stuff but the Seafrance Ferry with car and 3 adults is £85 with multiple sailings.
Any better idea's??

Sounds good to me.
8.15 ferry c/w breakfast, arrive 10.45, 1 hr Zeebrugge = 11.45
Duty Free shopping etc etc, Range opens 13.30.
Shoot, lunch, shoot some more.....
Evening ferry back and indoors by midnight.
Good day had by all

This could be interesting.

VERY.

It could get very busy though. I think the trip should be 'as a group' as money would be saved that way, and certifcates of good conduct would be easier to arrange.

I'm up for it, I'll even drive (Although can only get one other person in my car, back seats out of bounds due to suspension)

The only flaw is the duty free shopping, there isn't any anymore. But cigs and beer are still cheaper, do we need a trailor? We could take a minibus

I think that taking your car wouldn't be the best option because of space/cost etc.
But we could work something out.

First off, we'll have to agree on a date. I'm easy on this one as long as it doesn't clash with any of my prior engagements and a week day would be ok with me.
Crossing would also probably be cheaper.

Lets get it agreed upon

Mark
I see the range is closed on mondays and wednesdays

Minibus and 9 passengers=====£30
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 6:41:32 AM EDT
Yeah, if we can get a minibus, then fantastic, which is why it would have to be a group effort. After all, we aren't going to be taking any rifles are we.

I would need a couple of weeks in advance to book time off.
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 7:01:21 AM EDT
Minibus is about £290, i'll keep looking for something cheaper
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 7:14:19 AM EDT
[Last Edit: 12/28/2005 7:15:06 AM EDT by elucidate]
A couple of fully laden cars would be cheaper than the minibus there.

200 miles there and back (450 for good measure) is approx one tank and a half , maybe two with people, so thats £80 split by four people, not a bad price at all....
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 8:53:13 AM EDT
Can you take ammunition, would that lower the cost?
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 10:00:36 AM EDT
providing i could get the time off, i may be very interested in this little road trip

Could i be kept informed of the dates and cost please.

Cheers Chaps

I can't find a minibus at a decent price.
Best I can find is a VW Sharan 7 seater for £202.

Problem is....if we go early morning we have to pick it up the night before and if we get back late, it will have to be dropped off the following morning.
Therefore, a 2 or 3 day rental.
Anybody know anyone with a people carrier??
Bogtrotter has a "Family Fun Vehicle" but that might only seat 6.

Will keep working on it.

After speaking to Matt, we're of the opinion that a friday might be the best bet, as he's off on fridays, and if we do get back late....then there's no rush to get home as you can have a lie-in on saturday.

But we would have to make a group decision.
If we went as a "club" they might look on us more favourably

Can I propose as an alternative "Magnum" gun club in Prague

Return flights were £30 the gun club is ten quid in a taxi from the airport and theres a great selection of club pistolsand at least a dozen lanes...................

Ammunition is obviously Czech and therefore cheap, theres a bar which has two huge piles of magazines, every US firearms mag available and a huge variety of hardcore porn.

You can join as day members with a UK FAC and while of course you could do it comfortably and economically in a day it would be rude not to sample some of the night life.

Incidentally concealed carry is almost universal amongst the folk I met, the owner of the club unholstered a 2" Taurus in .44 Special as he came in

Just a thought..........

Richard
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 10:53:07 AM EDT
I can vouch for the Czech shooting clubs. They don't even need a FAC for a person to shoot, just ID.
The prices are less than 30 euros for a days shooting, and ammo is, like I said about 12p per 9mm round.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 10:55:10 AM EDT
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 11:28:56 AM EDT
I'd definately prefer CZ, especially since I have been led to believe most places will do full auto if you ask nice and have Dollars. But if that doesn't happen then I'd be more than happy with Belgium.

Just email them and ask...the club I've been to seems to have an aweful lot of space an safes around the range rooms.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 4:15:32 AM EDT
Certainly the owner offered me the chance to buy and keep a .45 CZ75 there

http://www.magnumpraha.cz/

Ignore the stag night nonsense, it is a proper club with proper facilities and obviously also room to shoot AK's (I'm asssuming this is another location rather than indoors)

Richard
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 6:24:09 AM EDT
This sounds like a great day out, certainly better than Alton Towers..., but as I'm in the Midlands I'd prefer to fly.....Should be able to get to either Belguim or Prague from local airports here with a cheapo ticket if booked far enough in advance.

I'll float the idea via the Missus so that the seed is planted in her head.......

Flying might be an idea....(actually no, have you SEEN the price?????)
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 9:06:37 AM EDT
Why would I want to fly to Zeebrugge?

This started out as a day trip on the ferry to Belgium and now everyone seems more interested in flying half way across the European continent

I'm all for a trip to Belgium, but as for going to Prague........count me out

To be honest, what with the cold and everything it has all slipped from the front of my mind.
I'll look into dates, but early feb sounds ok to me.

As above, flying is just too expensive.

Belgium sounds cool.

How many times in the year do you think you would be looking to go over? This all sounds pretty damn good to me, I always did have an unhealthy obsession with race guns. Would i be allowed to tag along on one of your trips? Please...pretty please?

Footnote, Just been on the european route planner and this fu***ng place is 131 km or 1 3/4 hours from my sisters house in Streefkerk Holland and i go there 3 or 4 times a year so basically i have fallen in sh*t and come up smelling of roses especially when i live 25 miles from Harwich so i'll see you there chaps...Yeehaaaaaa!!!

I think from Andy's link to Direct Ferries on the 1st page, for a car and 3 passengers was about 30 spondoolies
