    Well, Josh, I don't see what hunting in Costa Rica has to do with opening a bar in an indoor range, but I do think that mixing alcohol and gunpowder could lead to explosive results. But like you, am still missing the tobacco angle. :)

    heck ranges and club here often have bars , common rule amongst all of them

    once you touch any booze you cant touch a weapon again

    There's nothing wrong with a little alcohol and firearms. It's just all the idiots that have a LOT of alcohol and firearms that gives it a bad rap.........

    I can see it working like a "19th hole" kinda thing. Finish up your hobby, then enjoy a round or two with your buddies.

    It'll probably be a hit.

    Shouldn't the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives be a convenience store instead of a government agency?

    I think Jack's way is better, one is good for some not enough for others....then someone tries to play Cowboy Joe and his spinnin' 6 shooters and all hell breaks out.

    Actually I knew a guy who did just that, a millwright (nothing against millwrights) tried to play quick draw and blew a few toes off.

    Just tell stories...more fun and safer. ;)

    I don't see a problem. There's always alcohol involved when we go hunting, it comes at the end of the days hunt.

    I drink a few beers when target shooting because the fact it calms my shaking hands but do I operate a weapon intoxicated? no . Also around this area where I live dove hunting and beer go together.
