Shots, shots, shots: Oklahoma man wants to open bar in gun range

OKLAHOMA CITY – Beer and bullets, liquor locked and loaded, wine and weapons; one Oklahoma City man said he wants to have a bar at his gun range expected to open its doors soon.

Co-owner and general manager of the proposed Wilshire Gun, Jeff Swanson, said he has a plan to ensure it stays all fun and games and no one loses an eye.

Swanson said in the plan, customers will scan their driver’s license before they start shooting, either on the gun range or in the bar.

He said once the customer scans their ID to purchase a drink, it will no longer allow them to shoot on the gun range that day.

Officials said Oklahoma doesn’t have specific laws on the books banning a gun range from serving alcohol.

Although the combination of alcohol and weapons is unusual, Swanson’s establishment won’t be the first of its kind.

We could not find any other Oklahoma ranges offering such a service however, other states boast the specific type of recreation.
