Our family had a blast, literally and figuratively. My wife was a bit apprehensive about shooting guns, but the guys did a great job of teaching her and making her feel comfortable. Worth every penny.

Makes you feel like a real cowboy/cowgirl from times past. Have you shoot the significant guns from western history/movies: Colt, Winchester and the short double barrel shotgun. Very nice, friendly, relaxed and enthusiastic staff!
