Oklahoma Gun Range Hopes To Be First In The State To Sell Booze

OKLAHOMA CITY (UPI) — An Oklahoma business is hoping to make history by becoming the first gun range in the State to have a café that serves alcohol.

When the state-of-the art indoor range at Wilshire Gun opens in Oklahoma City this spring, owners hope that the 24 firearm lanes, 10 archery lanes and classrooms will be complemented by a VIP Lounge serving 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,” co-owner Jeff Swanson told KOKH.

Gun ranges in California and Texas have already been granted the right to serve alcohol.

“People can shoot first, then drink,” co-owner Jane Moran told the Journal Record.

After the City Planning Commission already voted to allow the plan to move forward, the Oklahoma City Council will vote about the issue May 27.

“I’ve not seen a business that does the firearms that has a liquor license,” said Alcoholic Beverage Law Enforcement Commission spokesperson Capt. Brent Fairchild, “but it’s possible that if they apply they could be the first one.”

Wilshire Gun still has to turn in an official liquor license application to the ABLE Commission.

“We would just encourage and hope they would be responsible people, especially in today’s age, with the issue of firearms,” Fairchild said.
