“We’re the only range in Oklahoma that has a liquor license to serve alcohol,” said Larry McAlister, a spokesman for Wilshire Gun, which is still under construction.
When Wilshire Gun opens in July, it will feature 24 firing lanes, a separate section for archery, and the lounge, where alcohol will be served. McAlister said that customers can bring their own guns, or can rent firearms from Wilshire’s arsenal, which will include machine guns.
McAlister described this “guntry club” business model as unusual but not unique, noting that there is a similar establishment in Georgia and “two or three” in Texas.
Co-owner Jane Moran, a certified financial planner and shooting enthusiast, said that “guns are the new golf” in the world of corporate events. She wants to create a clubhouse environment where business people can schmooze.
