Do you ever wish you could crack open a cold one while out on the shooting range? Now you can, sort of, at the Wilshire Gun Range near Oklahoma City, which recently acquired a liquor license. Finally, a government sanctioned combining of weapons and liquor.
Aside from serving alcohol to its patrons, this is a pretty damn impressive shooting range. The range is 40,000 square feet, and it includes 24 firearm lanes, 10 archery lanes, and a café where food and alcohol will be served. For the liberals worried that this gun range will turn all of Oklahoma into the wild fucking west, they should know that when a customer orders an alcoholic drink on the premises, the range will immediately flag his or her driver’s license. This is to prevent people from drinking alcohol before entering the shooting facilities. Despite the safety measures, skeptics–including Brent Fairchild of the Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission–predict people will find a way around the rules. No shit, Sherlock. Time will tell if this gun range can pull it off. Hopefully all goes well, and soon, all gun ranges will serve alcohol, because it’s only natural to want an ice cold beer after putting down a smoking gun.
