The newest gun range in the metro is set to open this Friday. But this place comes with a bit of controversy.

We're talking about the new Wilshire Gun Range, located on Wilshire Boulevard near Western Avenue. This place has gained national attention because it will also sell alcohol.

We recently talked with the owners and they stress once you start drinking, you won't be able to go past certain “checkpoints” in the gun range. They stress this will be a safe environment with plenty of precautions in every corner of the building.

All staff will be trained for sobriety testing. There will also be a point of sale system.

Here's how it works. You can access the range and your driver's license is scanned. If you want to go into the cafe, your firearm must be secured, but if you buy a drink, your ID will be scanned again. And that's when it's flagged.
