The Powder Springs City Council has approved an alcohol license for the Governors Gun Club.
Developers Kristina and Bert Brown say the 16-range facility will cost $3.5 million and will operate like a country club, with members-only privileges. She told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (bit.ly/SKrMtc) that a valet will take firearms when members have finished at the range. Members will not be allowed to return to the range after having a drink.
The manager of shooting promotions for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Zach Snow, said it has 7,000 shooting ranges in its database and only a few serve liquor. But he said more ranges are adding new amenities, such as cafes.
