Shots can be fired any way you want at a gun range coming to Oklahoma next month. Wilshire Gun, opening in July, will be both a gun range and a bar.

The range is still under construction, and Wilshire Gun spokesman Larry McAlister said they’re the only range in Oklahoma that has a license to serve alcohol, according to CNNMoney.

In addition to the traditional firing lanes and non-traditional bar, the range will also have a separate section for archery. Patrons can bring their own weapons or rent them from the in-house arsenal, including machine guns, McAlister said.

This isn’t the only “guntry club,” as McAlister described it, as there’s one in Georgia and a couple in Texas.

This “guntry club” is because “guns are the new golf” in the corporate event world, co-owner Jane Moran said. Along those lines, she wanted to create a place where business people could hold meetings or events as they would on a golf course.

But don’t worry about people drinking while shooting. Moran said the two sides of the business will be kept separate by scanning drivers licenses at the bar so customers can’t re-enter the range.
