Hi everyone,
We are looking for a shooting range near Mojacar (could be around 20-30km around Mojacar tho, we can drive). 
We never tried shooting before and we're looking to start, it seems like a lots of fun.

Does anyone here have any recommendation about that ? Do you need a firearm license to shoot in a shooting range ?

Thanks!

you need a licence if you own your rifle but I don't know of any clubs in the area.  there used to be a clay pigeon place but i think that closed down.

Ok thank you for your reply.
Eventually if there is no shooting range we were thinking about buying our own rifle and shoot in our plot, I'm just wondering how is the process of having a license here ? Do you have any experience with that ?

Being a licensed UK firearms holder, I brought  a point 22 complete with telescopic lens, a 12 bore shotgun and a 410 shotgun with me when we moved to Spain some 15 years ago. I had. written authority from the Spanish consulate in London plus the required airlines paperwork. Landing at Alicante I was ushered into an interrogation room and subjected to a thousand questions as if I intended starting an armed revolution. This was, as. stated having the correct paperwork, eventually they confiscated my .22 telescopic lens saying it was illegal and gave me my 3 guns stating I had to lodge then at the Guardia Civil barracks in Aguilas until I received my Spanish certificates. 10 months later after miles of paperwork, a detailed medical and then a psychological test plus pestering the designated firearms officer at the barracks I was given my licences and my guns were returned. 2 years later and now living in Andalucia it became obvious that owning guns was more of a liability than it was worth. There were no official clubs to speak and all small game had been decimated many years ago so I sold all three to a local gun shop in Aguilas and took up fishing.
