OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – So you’re feeling like getting a few shots off, what do you do? Head to the gun range of course. And if you feel like having a few shots after – head to the gun range?
Yep, at least at the Wilshire Gun Range in Oklahoma City you can.
Now we know what you’re thinking – mixing guns and alcohol just sounds like a bad idea. But the folks at Wilshire assure that the only mixing go on, will strictly be of drinks.
How? After getting a wristband, once a shooter is done at the range – and ready for a drink – they have to get their ID checked. And this isn’t only to check the shooter’s date of birth, but more importantly to get scanned into the system. A system that will deny a shooter access to shoot again.
"Once they've secured their firearm and presented their ID, that ensures that they are then locked out of all the ranges either as a shooter or spectator for the remainder of the day,” General Manager Jeffery Swanson said.
Okay, that makes sense.
So guns, then drinks? Sounds safe enough – that is, unless a gun toter who had a couple gets cut off on the way home. Then there could be trouble.
