About Shaw Shooting

The Shaw Shooting School is a world class firearms training facility that caters to all skill levels for any occasion.  You will not find a better shooting range combined with quality of instruction anywhere in the country (See 'RANGES' above).  Whether you're a complete beginner, seasoned marksman, law enforcement, or military; Shaw Shooting is the place to train. 

We offer a full line of firearms for rent, ammuntion, and a complete pro shop for gear.  

We provide firearm classes that are scheduled on the weekends for various firearms training as well as private classes that can be scheduled on the week days.  We also tailor to private events such as weddings, bachelorette/bachlor parties, company get-aways, men's/women's weekends, and birthdays.  See "Premier Lodging" in the 'LODGING' header above. 

There are aproximately 80 million gun owners in the United States and sadly most gun owners practice shooting a few times a year and think they're experts, but the fact is people are novice at best. Let Shaw Shooting give you the knowledge and skill to shoot/handle your firearm the correct way saving your time, money, and ammunition for the rest of your life.


Houston Shaw is a graduate from the University of Nevada with a degree in business management. He's a professional shooter and owner/lead instructor at The Shaw Shooting School in Hagerman, Idaho. He's been shooting his whole life and has been instructing for over 6 years. He started teaching at Mid-South Institute of Combat Shooting in 2010 and is a guest instructor there throughout the year. He's worked mostly with United States Special Operations but has also been teaching civilian classes the past 3 summers at his Idaho location. He can accommodate his classes for various skill levels from beginner to grand master. 


The range facility includes over 400 steel targets to be engaged with pistols and rifles.  The Shaw Shooting School has the entire 8 stages of the World Pistol Speed Shooting Championships, Bianchi Cup's steel mover and plate racks, as well as the majority of the stages for the Man Vs. Man Grand National Pistol Championships.  There are a total of 18 different ranges.  The school has steel targets that range from 7 yards to 200 yards.  350 steel targets are for pistol engagement and the other 50 can be engaged with most rifles.  Most of the steel is stationary; however some of the ranges include a pneumatic air system that can bring the targets back to sight once they have been knocked down.  The Shaw Shooting School also has 2 paper ranges for fundamental accurate shooting.

My clients are given the option to have a range membership at the end of my courses. The membership is $1,500 per client that wants to use the range. The range will be available February through September.In that time frame, it will be open when I’m not instructing on given dates. With the membership, the client may only shoot the type of weapon he or she has taken my class on. Please contact me via e-mail for further questions.
