A new gun range set to open later this spring in Oklahoma City has been approved for a liquor license from the city council.
The 40,000-square-foot Wilshire Gun Range complex will include 24 lanes for shooting, 10 archery lanes, classrooms, a simulation room and a café that will serve food and alcohol.
“As a group we wanted to build a place, the first one in Oklahoma, where you could go in, shoot, enjoy the retail area and then go to the café,” range co-owner Jeff Swanson told local Oklahoma City news station KOKH.
Swanson told KOKH that strict rules will prohibit anyone from entering the gun range, even as a spectator, after consuming alcohol.
“Any misconceptions or joking aside, beer and bullets, guns and alcohol, they do not mix,” he said.
Swanson says he has consulted with similar ranges in California and Texas. A gun range in Georgia received a license to sell liquor to patrons in 2012.
