Owner description: By appointment only! We strongly recommend booking at least 30 days in advance! Seriously!! San Antonio Western Shooting provides a safe, supervised fun Western Shooting Experience using real guns and real bullets. We provide instruction in the safe handling shooting of all guns. No experience necessary! You will have the opportunity to shoot reproductions of guns such as the Colt 1873 Peacemaker pistol in a western setting. When you get used to those guns we will have you shoot the double barreled shotgun. Shooters will shoot about 75 rounds and it will take about 3 hours, the cost is $130 per person. All of our shooting sessions are by appointment only! Sorry, no "fast draw" or "twirling" of guns is permitted. Absolutely no alcoholic beverages are permitted onsite. Guests may bring observers at no extra cost. See our website and Facebook page for more information. Unruly children will be sold to the Comanche.

My girlfriend and I saw the other reviews on tripadvisor and thought that we should try it out. It definitely didn't disappoint! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the firearms that were used. They often gave us some historical background on each of the guns and their significance to the west which was really neat.

The scenarios were really fun and were a great thing to experience as a couple. It was really well structured and there was never a moment where we didn't feel completely safe and that the instructors were always watching and ready to help if need be.

I really thought this was a great experience and it was definitely a highlight of our weekend. I would recommend them to anyone who might fight themselves in the area. Such a blast!

Had a blast shooting pistols, rifles and shotguns. Was very successful at hitting the targets because of the great, knowledgable, entertaining cowboy teachers. Sooooo much fun!

Our son was visiting us from Illinois after our recent move to the area and found this activity on-line. This was fun and exciting learning about the weapons, how to shoot safely, and yes hitting the targets. Truly the instructors made the entire program with their background, style of presentation, and good heartedness. Thank you all for the wonderful day.

I am so glad I booked this based on the great reviews I saw on Trip Advisor . We had such a fun time and learned a lot. These guys are terrific, so patient and real nice. They know their guns and will keep you safe. This attraction is something you don't come across in many places, when was the last time you tried to thwart a stage coach robbery or dealt with a cheating card player in the saloon. It was lots of laughs but also a real learning experience as well.

No pun intended.... but really, was a fantastic time. Lee and the other cowboys truly know their guns and their history, and are a fun bunch of folks to spend a weekend morning with. All fun aside, they maintained a very professional and safe shooting environment. The instructors were patient and did not rush through the various activities and shooting experiences, and paid close attention to each and every shooter. Particularly impressive was the ratio of instructors to guests (at least 1:1 on the day I went). Highly recommended!
