2012 Reviews of the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience

I live in Jackson and have been to our local shooting range on multiple occasions. The two hour lesson I had with Shepard of JH Shooting Experience, however, was far and away the most fun I have ever had there. Shepard was safety-conscious, supportive, instructive, professional and good-humored. He gave me a lot of valuable tips to improve my shooting and my comfort level with my rifle. My lesson far exceeded my expectations! I wish I had done this years ago and will most definitely treat myself to another lesson with Shepard. You should treat yourself, too!

We had an amazing time. The “we” is me, my wife, and two sons. The instruction is great. Incredibly well thought out to build confidence and ability. Everything was positive and frankly the color commentary was so funny it was made everyone at ease. The hardware we got to use was a once in a lifetime array of historically significant firearms to the latest and greatest o today. I cannot rate this high enough. We have had an awesome time in the Jackson area but this is the cherry on the sundae.

Had a great time shooting with Colt. He was a had a great fund of knowledge and very humble about his accomplishments. My wife who had never picked up a gun shot a target from 600 yards away. I was literally “blown away”. Will return again when we are in the area.

Never fired a weapon before, coming from the New York area, so it was with a mix of trepidation and adventure that I signed up for a shooting experience. Rest assured, you will be in good hands. Shephard is the ideal instructor for the first timer. You are given clear instructions with safety always in mind and a dose of good humor that sets you at ease. With that in mind: expect to feel unmitigated joy as you slam the next clip in, squeeze the trigger, and hear the “ping” against the target.

My wife and I happened to stumble upon this at the adventure center. I’ve shot a couple of guns before in my life but what drew me to do this was the larger caliber guns that are hard to come by up here in Canada. I was a bit leery over the initial price but I’m so glad I did it. Its well worth the money.
I had an awesome time doing this, ended up having the instructor all to myself and the knowledge mixed with fun was a great balance. Shepherd would drop knowledge on at the right times to keep you engaged and having fun. Everything was interesting. I really enjoyed the different situations that he would provide you like timed shooting (which I pulled off a nice 1.9s woot!), challenging you to try new things like double and triple tapping targets as well as trying to distract you at times while you are shooting to teach you that things aren’t always calm when you need to make a shot. ha.
Now, the absolute highlight for me was the 50 Caliber Bushmaster sniper rifle. I’m so glad that I happened to ask:
“have you shot a 50 cal before”
“do you have one”
“OH. Um…. Can I shoot it?”
SWEET! $25/shot is cool. I only did one, but so glad I did, the highlight of the whole thing for me.
I kept a number of the bullet casings and am planning on framing them with a number of the pictures my wife took while I did this. This was a great experience I’ll always remember (and really made me want to start to collect my own guns even more).
The only thing that I wish it had was a few more rounds of the higher caliber guns. You only had 1 – 3 bullets of each of the higher caliber guns. I’m sure this is to help with cost, but it would have been really great to at least be able to pick one of the higher caliber guns to shoot a few more bullets from.
Regardless of that I highly recommend this, it’s a lot of fun and Shepherd is a great guy. Having him get excited with you when you hit a target at range (like the 300 yard target using the 22 with red dot scope, which we said was really stretching it. ha.). Anyways, seeing him get excited about a shot alongside you really added to the enjoyment of it all.

My son and I signed up for one of Shepard’s designer instruction packages. I shoot rifles regularly in the UK so we asked for a course just on handguns. It was a superb experience a large range of guns and really expert tuition. There is a clear and absolute commitment to safety from very experenced instructors (Shepard himself is ex Police). We were traveling as a family of five …the three girls went to ride horses …we went to learn how to shoot, by far the best day of the holiday.
If you are within 500 miles of Jackson Hole just change your itinerary and book a course.

We had an amazing time shooting guns at the jackson shooting experience. We were able to shoot a wide range of guns varying from rifles to handguns. This was by far my favourite part of our trip to the US. This was definitely worth every cent! We couldn’t have asked for a more patient, friendly and helpful instructor (shepard).

Lynn was so helpful in setting up our own personalized shooting experience for 3 generations of our family. Colt was our instructor and was very personable. It was at a wonderfully rustic shooting range that was very easy to get to. We found that it can be as comical or as competitive as you want it to be. It is so nice that we could create our own experience. It was truly a highlight of our trip to Jackson Hole and a great way to celebrate Grand Dad’s birthday.

The Jackson Hole Shooting Experience is a “must do” for anyone traveling to Jackson Hole who wants to experience the Old West in a thoroughly New and sophisticated way. My wife, 9-year old son and I enjoyed our multi-gun experience so much the first time, we cancelled a second day of trout fishing for another day of shooting. Our instructor, Bob Gathercole, was excellent and is a natural teacher who can make learning something new as fun as it gets. He did an awesome job with our son, encouraging his interest and enthusiasm while gently guiding him on gun safety. It’s rare to meet someone like Bob, a skilled and competitive marksman, who can instruct novices like us. Add Shepherd, the owner, and Lynn Sherwood who helped schedule our visits at the last minute, to the mix and you have an unbeatable experience. What a great time! We’re already planning our visit next summer.

My family and I had a great time with Shep and Lynn. We chose the 4-hour shooting experience. When I first signed us up, I was only going to have my husband and son (13) do this but I am so glad my daughter (10) and I also participated. We loved it and had a blast. Shep made my nerves go away as he was very focused on safety and he was extremely patient with my daughter – wanting her to get as much out of the experience as any of us.
I didn’t quite understand why we needed all 4 hours but they flew by and it reallly allowed us to try all different types of guns.

All the staff are super friendly and made us feel welcome. My son said it’s the most fun he’s ever had. And, as a female I’ll admit that I didn’t think I would like shooting, but I was wrong.

Just back from a two week trek throughout Wyoming, Yellowstone, Jackson and other places – fabulous trip! But the number one favorite of myself, 12 year old son and 13 year old daughter was the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience. Colt was great in teaching all about the proper gun safety and etiquette before we started the shooting. Everything from small caliber to high caliber, rifles to revolvers to semi-automatic pistols. My daughter can’t stop talking about how she hit a target from 500 yds with the sniper rifle! Anyway, not inexpensive, but worth every penny. BTW, we just got back from the local gun store where we picked out a nice 9mm pistol to practice at the local range.

Highly recommended. We did the multi-gun experience at the insistence of our 12-year-old video-game-playing son, but our nine-year-old daughter and the two of us ended up loving it too!
Most importantly, the experience was — and felt — super-safe, making this an ideal way to learn about and experience shooting for those who, like the four of us, never come across real guns in day-to-day life and are otherwise normally wary of them.
Our instructor, Shepard (the owner of the company) was incredibly patient with us newbies, very accommodating with our two children, deeply knowledgeable about the subject, and simply wonderful at teaching the four of us about different types of guns, their power and idiosyncrasies, and how to use them safely. Thank you Shepard!
Unexpectedly, we came away from this experience with newfound appreciation for shooting as a sport: we now understand firsthand why some people enjoy it so much.

Just came from a four hour , multi-gun experience and have to say that it was an incredible experience. Shephard was truly great! He explained all the safety rules easily and quickly and we were quickly shooting! Each new gun was introduced efficiently and Shephard often inspired our family rivalry during the ‘speed’ rounds. He was very personable, easy going yet the consummate professional. We sampled everything from a pistol to an AK 47…. Where else can you do that?

Within in the first five minutes of arriving at the gun range, we knew we were in for a great experience. As we pulled into the parking lot, Shepard was already walking out to greet us. The range faces a large, steep grassy hill that goes up hundreds of yards. It was a gorgeous morning, and we couldn’t believe we would be shooting targets in such a scenic setting! He took us to our shooting area, where he had a great setup — rifles, revolvers, semi-automatics, and some reeeally big guns. He also provided us with snacks, water, and safety gear.
Shepard is a fun, patient, and knowledgeable instructor who stresses safety. Being totally unfamiliar with guns, I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy four hours of shooting. Boy, was I wrong. Shepard took the time to teach us the proper technique for grip, aiming, and trigger pull. He had already set up a variety of targets across the range at different distances. We started out slow, shooting large targets, then increasing the distance, then going for precision, then for speed. It was a ton of fun as we competed on different guns for best time or number of hits.
At the end of the morning, my guy decided to pay extra and shoot the Barrett .50 caliber rifle. You can’t use that thing on a regular target, so he had to shoot at the boulders at the top of the hill. The pressure and sound from the gun was incredible, and it was awesome to see the spray of the rocks. Great way to end the morning!
Again, Shepard is a great instructor with a great personality. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Jackson Hole. This was our favorite activity of the trip, and we would definitely do it again!

I had been in Jackson for a total of one day, and a friend had a surprise for me. She would not tell me anything about it other than to wear comfortable shoes. So, we she takes me a little bit outside of the town and drives me up a private little driveway where Lynn met me with a warm smile to welcome me to the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience. I was not happy. I did not like guns. I had never touched a gun. I had no interest in shooting a bullet. Not one.
But I decided to stay and watch as everyone was so nice, and I thought I wouild just hang out for awhile.
After a quick but very thorough safety course, we all went out so they could demonstate and then we (they) could start firing away. After watching it all, I decided to give it a try…
Uhhhhh, let’s just say that I was not willing to give up my gun. I didn’t want to leave. I had the opportunity to shoot many different guns. Big guns. Little guns. My favorite was the .22 rifle. I actually sort of kicked [–] on that one, hitting nearly every target. The shotgun has some kick, so make sure that you place it correctly on your shoulder, and take the advice from your instructor as sometimes I don’t listen as well as I should. They have dress up clothes if that is your thing, they have archery. Thye have something for everyone in every level.
Shepard, Lynn and their team are fabulous! They are patient and informative, they will go out of their way to make it very special and customize it for you and your family- or friends!
Or be selfish and go by yourself so you have more shooting time, but its fun to watch others, my archery instructor had to move my target up about 20 feet so I could hit it, my arrows still just bounced off. My friend’s arrow went backward a couple of times. My stomach muscles ached for days after laughing so hard.
Don’t miss this activity. It is one of a kind.

With a lot of long rifle experience, my wife and I had never handled a “small arm”…a handgun. We signed up for Shepard’s introductory course and were educated, entertained, challenged and rewarded by his course. Both of us felt like “we want more” and preferably from Shep.

Of course, we learned how to clean them at the end of the day. D&L P.
