This is a very well run and very good fun experience.

First of all safety - this is a live firing range and the emphasis is on safety through out. The rules are clear and the reasons for them well explained as is the operation of the weapons.

The style of range shooting is different. This is not just pumping bullets into a paper target. The guys have set up a range of scenarios to make the experience fun and educational about the old west.

The whole 3 hours flys past too quickly because is it fun and well operated.

Very enjoyable and felt safe having had the proper guidance and safety essentials explained. We thought this would be something unique and very different to anything we would find back home in the UK, and we weren't disappointed. Got quite a few mossie bites so get protected if you are a sufferer!! Tip: from the main road the entrance sign is marked as "A Place to Shoot".

We have shot guns in ranges in the US before, this looked totally different and it was and worth every $. You spend your time in a mockup western town and shoot old west style guns. The guys are absolutely brilliant, you feel totally safe whilst having some fun. I cannot recommend a visit here enough, you will have one of the best times no matter what age, male or female.
If we ever get back to San Antonio we will certainly be visiting again.

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!

I'm from the UK so don't really have the option to shoot guns, period. So during a trip to San Antonio I made sure I came here to shoot old western guns. It was an awesome day, the guys really looked after us, and between shoots were giving us a history lesson as well as letting us blast our way through multiple targets.

I would recommend this to anyone.

As Europeans we are not common with guns. So this was a very, very exiting. The whole stuff was so kind. Even if you have (as we had) no Experience everything has been explained in a very nice way. All relaxed mixed with some fun - we just loved it. Don't miss when visiting Texas.

Super fun! Even if you’ve never shot/seen a gun before and were terrified (like I was), you will still love it and have a great time!

The guides are super helpful and teach you loads.

Better than the other shooting thingys because you aren’t confined in a booth. Your guides tell you the history of the area and the area is set up so you feel you are really in the old west.
There are challenges as well !
Definitely give this place a try
