    Sounds too dangerous to me, I've seen what can happen with alcohol and bows. Not pretty. You ever seen an AD with a compound bow? You don't want to. Ever.

    I'm not sure where I stand on this. I can see where there might be times I just want to have a drink so I stop by the range and watch people shoot or look at what they have on sale. I don't think people should sit there drinking and going into the range area. So as I initially said I just not sure. How would they truly be able to regulate it?

    There was another range that did this, but you had to be done shooting for the day to imbibe.

    I saw this on the news last night. The owner said that the ranged checked ID. When you order a drink at the bar, they scanned your driver's license, which banned you from using the range that day.

    I don't see why any entrepreneur would want to take on that sort of liability. I can't imagine what insurance company would cover them.

    Nothing to stop a drunk from getting loaded somewhere else and then deciding to go to the range. Of course, why make it easy. Alcohol impairs judgement, not a good thing around guns and other people.

    Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms should be a store not a government agency... ;)
