Handgun Shooting ranges in UK?

Posted 24th Jan 2013
My fiancee has said she would like to shoot a hand gun and I have been looking around for any ranges in the UK that allow it. I can't really find anything and that may be understandable but does anyone know anywhere that allows that.

Background checks etc are all fine with me, whatever is needed I'm just curious as to if ranges even exist in the UK for people to go and, under supervison, legally fire a handgun.

Failing UK places we might be going back to the states for a few weeks this year so maybe that would be the better option. Just not sure where the law stands over here and if you need to have gone through full firearms training and certification before shooting one at a range.

I assume the latter is probably the case but any sensible replies are welcome.
