“Lots of fun and safe - Awesome bachelor party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

First and foremost this was a great and fun trip. I was in a bachelor party and we all had a blast. Safety was key at this event and they made sure that came first. One of the guys that went with us had never before shot a gun and learned how to here... and he did amazing.

Shooting at different targets was lots of fun, especially when trying to shoot your ball to the finish line. One of the coolest things we did was shoot a bullet at an Axe and literally split the bullet in 2... hitting two different plates behind.

I am 28 yrs old and my buds and I really enjoyed it. This is easily good for all ages, including kids. Again, safety is paramount here and they do things right.

“Great way to spend a morning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Just got back from spending the morning at San Antonio Western shooting.
Found out about it through trip advisor and booked well in advance.
My husband and I had a fantastic time and as some people had cancelled at the last minute we had three instructors all to ourselves. They were all very nice and helpful and made us feel special as well as giving very good instruction. I would never have thought that I could shoot at the blade of an axe and split a bullet in half, which I managed on my second attempt, hubby did on his first go! Well worth a visit.

“It was a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Like a lot of others we found out about this through Trip Advisor when looking for something to do in San Antonio. This was something we had missed out on doing in Wyoming on a previous trip so jumped at the chance when previous reviews were so good. We had a fantastic morning with Beans and Salk Valey Sam who gave us a very thorough safety briefing before we were taken to the 'shooting range'. Yes, the set ups of the card game, stagecoach hold-up and the homestead are simple and pretty much home-made but who cares? The cowboys were great company, full of information and enthusiasm, and made each scenario come to life with their infectious sense of humour and obvious love of what they do. We were totally at ease from the start, laughed a lot, shot a lot (those gringos had no chance!) and left wanting to do it all again.....and again. Cannot recommend it highly enough, particularly to non US tourists who perhaps have never held a gun before (like me), never mind split a bullet on an axe head!
