This place lets you shoot historical and modern firearms, including muskets, flintlocks, WW2 rifles, machine guns, etc. I shot the Thompson sub machine gun (aka the “Tommy Gun”) and it was great. My instructor was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Whether you’ve been firing guns your whole life or have never picked one up, it’ll be a great experience.
They also have a gun museum and a gun arcade. In another area, they also had a General Patton lookalike who would talk about a wide range of WW2 rifles that he has out for you to see.
If you like history (western history, military history) or guns, this is a great location to stop at. If you want to experience the old west, you can fire a gun from
the old west! It really was my favorite experience in Cody, and one I’ll be revisiting when I visit Cody again. More
I visited Cody Firearms Experience on a rest day of a geological field trip and had the most amazing time. The staff were all clearly very experienced and professional and gave me so much information about all of the different guns, their history and key historical figures who had used them. My colleague and I weren't rushed at all and felt like we were very looked after at all times.
I chose to shoot a Winchester 1873 .45, a Schofield Model 3 revolver, and the amazing M1 Garand. All for an extremely reasonable price in my view. The M1 is an absolute beast of a rifle, highly recommended!
Visiting from England, guns are a bit of a mystery to us, but after the safety briefing and a chance to shoot, I totally understand the appeal now. The staff were so professional and friendly, if I ever visit Cody again (hopefully soon!) I will definitely be coming back to try some different guns out.
All in all, an incredible couple of hours that I will never forget. More
Kari was amazing! She helped all of us learn the history of the each gun that we shot. We shot everything from a black powder revolver up to a Tommy Gun. Safety is a huge part and loved how they made sure we were all successful. I were able to adapt the experience for our son who needed extra support!
Had an excellent time shooting 3 different firearms! The staff was extremely fun, safety oriented, and very informational. I am an experienced shooter that had an opportunity to shoot several firearms that without them would not have been possible. Definitely would recommend if you are...More
