A state of the art gun range under construction in the city is about ready to open. The range originally made headlines because alcohol will also be served there.

The Wilshire Gun Range is nearly complete and the general manager says get your bucket list ready, because you can check off some things in here.

The first thing you see when you enter is the Range Café, where you can eat and order an alcoholic drink. But once you start drinking, you can't get past certain checkpoints.

Past the cafe is the 8,000 square foot of retail space where you can buy guns and accessories. The range partnered with Oklahoma Machine Guns to offer one of the largest rental pools for machine guns in the country.

You'll be able to rent guns like a Tommy gun or the MP5 and the big bertha, the Gatling gun that blasts 200 rounds in less than four seconds.

You can shoot on the 25 yard, 35 yard or the 101-yard range. The long range even has special features like this for law enforcement training.

Faucets, floors and furniture go in this week and the last thing the range needs is the fire marshal's approval, which is next week. After that, the range could be open within 2 to 3 weeks.
