Good news for casual drinkers and casual gun users—or in other words, the majority of the state of Florida: Business owners in Daytona Beach are solidifying plans to open a combination restaurant/bar/gun range in the Sunshine State.
The range will not serve drinks to patrons before or during their time using the 12-lane shooting area, according to Vice, but guests are free to have a victory beer, or seven, to celebrate their crack shot. Employees will keep track of all customers by scanning their IDs. There will be an electronic record of who has been served drinks or not, and then you will then have to scan your ID again to get into the shooting area of the establishment.
The city commissioners in Daytona were hesitant at first, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, but ultimately only one of 12 votes went against the proposal. The range will occupy a spot in Daytona that previously housed a bowling alley, America’s other popular ‘drinking while dealing with potentially dangerous objects’ pastime.
If customers wants to skip the restaurant part of the shooting experience, they have to sign an affidavit swearing that they are not under the influence of alcohol. In Florida terms, that means: drink at home, go shooting, stay for a night cap!
The range should be open in the next few months, and after that you’ll never need to go to Dave & Buster’s for screwdrivers and Duck Hunt again.
