There is now one more way to pass the time while you're waiting for other people to shop at the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall this holiday season.

Some people start their Christmas shopping in October. There are even quite a few who do a big chunk of it on Black Friday to get some good deals. There are still just a few more days until Christmas. There is still a massive amount of people who procrastinate and wait until the very last minute. I fit into that category. I still have a lot of shopping to do.

You may be making frequent trips to the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall to get in some last-minute shopping. The last time I was there I noticed that a new indoor airsoft shooting range had recently opened. It was the perfect place for me to distract myself and hide while my wife got some gifts for me and hid them in the car.

For just a few dollars you can get a full magazine, spray some targets, and try to knock them down.

The place is called Fun on Target and it is located on the first floor near the center of the mall. I believe it took over a chocolate shop. Airsoft is a game that is similar to paintball but can be played both outdoors or indoors since the ammunition is much smaller and doesn't leave large paint marks.
